Subject: What year did Millennial culture start? 1989/90 or 1997?

Written By: Early2010sGuy on 01/31/19 at 4:10 pm

I know this seems obvious to answer already, but 1989/90 had some Millennial childhood elements like New Jack Swing, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Michael Jordan, Game Boy, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, House music, Home alone, you get the idea. But this 1989/90 stuff is all about millennial childhood of course. But what year do you guys think that millennial culture started?

I was born in 89, most of it kicked off in late 1997, Backstreet Boys, Spice girls, Tamagotchi, TRL, 98 degrees, shiny y2k clothing, WWF attitude


1997 was a restart button from the previous Gen X culture (Grunge, sarcasm, slacker culture) Fonts and commercials in the 97-98 school year
were more shiny and less GRITTY than the years preceding it. There was a Spice girls commercial that was on the air during Fall 97 that was perclaiming
we are in GENERATION NEXT, it was targeted at Generation Y.

Good answer!  :) In my opinion, millennial culture started with children shows, and the music, which is around 1989/90, but the true millennial culture started around 1997.

Born in '90, defiantly Late 1997 was the start of Millennial culture.

Woo!  :D


The feeling was really fun, LIKE REAL FUN, we were in this depressing grunge era for years and years and years..............
And then everything gets all Shiny and upbeat, it was SO damn refreshing at the time. By that time the economy had rebounded...
Music sales were going up as well.

Heck yeah! From the Grunge era to the Teen pop era. But the mid 90s weren’t 100% dark though, there were still some upbeat music from R&B girl bands like TLC and All Saints

The mid 90s were SUPER DARK, I was a child then so if I was a teen I would have seen the changes more vividly, regardless I remember the atmosphere feeling bootleg/dirty until the 97 shinyness crept in. Lots of people were pissed of back then, mainly Gen Xers that were pissed their culture was fading away.
for me tho the culture felt my own, like we could own it.

I always saw TLC as part of Gen X and Millennial pop culture. TLC in '92 Gen X and TLC in '99 Millennial.

True true


97 was the giant reset button for culture,  Even Biggie Smalls died the first month in January.

Britney Spears also debuted in 1997 but it was lowkey and not many people knew about it, she was in a group
called Innosense and their video was played on The Box (a cable music video channel)




SIEgv-H-Q7Q



During the 1997-1998 school year she did some mall tours

Was not until October 1998 most people would hear of who Britney was when she was solo

98 was more of expanding on this new era by adding people like Britney Spears,Nsync.

What? No, he didn't. Biggie passed away in March. Otherwise, I don't think Hypnotize would have been huge if he died in January of that year.

I think millennial little kid culture had its earliest roots with the little kid (ages 2 to 7)targeted shows in 1988,1987, 1986 and 1985 like Kidsongs, Wee-sing and Barney in the Backyard Gang.  I think that by 1989 Millennial big kid culture (ages 8 to 12) was already rising with shows like Duck Tales, Adventures of the Gummi Bears T.M.N.T and Double Dare. Early Millennial kid culture in my opinion started having its zeitgeist in 1990 when T.M.N.T and Bartmania was popular
