    Bill Clinton doesn't hate the late 90's. he still feels a sense of nostalgia for sweet, sweet Monica.

    Yeah, and strawberry phillies lol.

      The late 90s was a really good time. I guess people are confusing the late 90s with another era?

        I can see how someone would make such a mistake. But they are clearly confused. I mean, Layne Staley was still alive!

          Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, be free to move it to a different section. I notice most people on most nostalgia related websites are pretty biases against the late 90's stuff when it comes to 90's related things. I remember one person on the web posted a Rocket Power image and people were like "This is not 90's!". It's like people are like the 90's was only 1990 - 1996. I think the late 90's was just as good as the early and mid 90's. The late 90's had a lot of cool shows, music (like Rob Zombie) and video games in my opinion.


          Rocket Power is 90s material, but overall, it isn't a 90s show.

          1999 | 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004

            I can understand Family Guy and Spongebob being more 2000's show since they had more life time in the 2000's and were still relevant by 2009. Rocket Power ended around 2002 or 2003. People view shows like Captain N and Dink, the Little Dinosaur as 80's show even though they both ended in 1991 and had re-runs playing during the mid 90's.


            Re-runs aren't really the same thing as original airings.


            RP ended in 2004.

              1. Nu metal
              2. Britney Spears
              3. Grunge ended
              4. Woodstock 99

              These would probably be the 4 reasons why people hate the late 90s. I don't hate it.

                Sounds like people haven't researched or really weren't paying enough attention.

                It's funny how people seem to think that the late 90s was only Britney Spears and Nu metal. Also, grunge didn't die in the late 90s.

                For example:

                Degradation Trip - Jerry Cantrell (2002)
                The Lucky Ones - Mudhoney (2008)
                King Animal - Soundgarden (2012)

                Grunge died in the late 90s, huh? Doubt it.

                  Only thing I really hated about the late 90s was the rise of shitty music which over time has managed to get worse.


                  Music started to go downhill in around '94.

                    There is a shitload of good music still being made. Of course this might not be the case if you only like grunge or only one other genre, or don't know how to seek out music beyond what's on terrestrial radio, but that would be the individual's problem not the rest of the world.

                      I have to admit I liked being a nearly mindless kid in the early to mid 90s but the late 90s (1997-1999) were still great years but this was around the time I started to feel that my childhood was slipping away as I began being conscious of my age and how I look. I suppose the image conscious 90s finally got to me after years of absorbing pop culture and watching a ton of tv shows filled with good looking people and the not so good looking people were always secondary characters and open to ridicule. In that sense the late 90s weren't too good for an impressionable kid without a father and neglectful mother so I had to learn from television shows most of the time and as I know now that television and reality are two different things. I would take the stuff on television as representing reality because I didn't know any better.
