    I remember kids in high school actually wearing their close backwards. This was in Whitey White Bread Chicago Suburbia. I wanted to beat the shit out of them.

    I would have, too, if I hadn't been 80 pounds soaking wet.

    Songs that embody 90s?
    (might be a few repeats)

    Sublime - What I Got, Date Rape
    Weezer - Buddy Holly, Across the Sea, Say it Ain't So
    The Offspring - Nitro
    Beastie Boys - Sabotage, Sure Shot
    Foo Fighters - My Hero, Everlong, Learn to Fly
    Nirvana - About a Girl
    Blur - Song 2
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give it Away
    Green Day - Basket Case
    Green Day - Good Riddance (The most overplayed song of the 90s. Ever.) *needs emphasis

    EDIT: Damn you Chumbawhumba, Aqua, Everlast, Fastball, and Eiffel 65.
    You all deserve to die in 90s hell for making such annoyingly catchy songs.
    And Macarena...I wouldn't call it quintessential, but it was a big part of the 90s, no?

    More Candaian 90s is Blue Rodeo -- Lost Together and Five Days in May, Moxy Fruvous -- King Of Spain, Great Big Sea -- End of the World, Ordinary Day, Consequence Free


    Others: Vertical Horizon -- Everything You Want

    Edwin Mccain -- I'll Be

    Santana -- Smooth

    Taco Bell does win the franchise war according to the tome of knowledge that is Demolition Man. However, I've watched Demolition Man more then a few times and never once did I see WoW. In conclusion Taco Bell has more lasting power then WoW.
