Every decade before the turn of the century had its own distinct culture, music, and style. The 90s was the last decade to have it's own identity. The haircuts, clothing styles, and mainstream music sound of today is all borrowed from the 90s.
Access to the internet changed everything. It was the extinction of the encyclopedia salesmen, the birth of reality tv (COPS, Real World, etc.), and the end of the chain music stores.
Cable went from 36 channels to 60 channels, every major electronics company released a gaming console (Philips, Magnavox, Sony),P0nr was available on the computer, and your Saturday wasnt complete unless you bought a pack of baseball cards, and
every one carried a "jimmy hat" in thier wallets just in case...plus it was arguably the greatest era of the NBA
Air Jordans, Reebok Pumps, and other premium sneakers were so easy to purchase. Supply outweighed demand because of what were rediculous prices at the time, and they were available at all 4 the mens mall shoe stores plus the 3 anchor stores.
This era was also very violent. People stopped fighting and started shooting, drive by shootings made thier way into the suburbs, and people started being killed for shoes and star stater jackets.
All on all, the 90s was a great decade.
