Back In The Day: We Love Yin Yangs

What: Yin Yangs

When we wore it: mid to late ’90s

Why we hate them: We feel like it’s a little backwards to use the word “hate” for these stylish messengers of peace. But we will bring up some troubling questions like, why were the literally everywhere? And where did they… More »


Back In The Day: We Love Bandannas

What it is: The almighty bandanna.

When we wore it: Strong throughout the ’90s.

Why we hate it: The bandana made us all go through somewhat of an identity crisis. I mean, were we badass rappers like Tupac, or dirty rock stars like Axl Rose? And what were we to think… More »


Back In The Day: We Love Power Beads

Who doesn’t love summoning up memories of those hideous, yet magnificent trends from our freckle-faced youth? Every week, we’ll muse over a fashion item that our former selves eagerly donned in order to sit with the cool kids at lunch.

The Dumbest Things We Did In The ’90s

You miss the ’90s, we miss the ’90s, everybody misses the ’90s. It was a happier time of economic prosperity, a predictable climate, peace abroad (well, aside from a couple genocides) and a watchable — nay, enjoyable — M. Night Shyamalan film.

But not everything from the ’90s is worth missing. Here are the worst… More »


Watch ’90s Will Smith, Ice-T & Queen Latifah Rap About Earth Day

Guys, the ’90s! The best! Here’s a clip from a 1990 Earth Day special, featuring, oh, basically everyone who was famous in the ’90s. While the entire special is about an hour long and features everyone from Neil Patrick Harris (NPH 4 LYFE) to Danny Devito, the Cosbys and the stars of “Thirtysomething,” we thought… More »


6 Dating Rituals That Have Become Extinct Because Of The Internet

I was watching the vintage “Real World” marathon this past weekend on MTV. On the San Francisco season, you may remember that episode where Rachel goes to a coffee shop to give her number to a dude. It doesn’t end up working out, but oh man, this scene gave me a crazy bout of dating… More »


The New Kids On The Block Are Shirtless And Rocking Porn Star ‘Staches

Speaking of ’90s musicians, Donnie Wahlberg recently tweeted this photo of the New Kids hanging out in what looks like a locker room(?!), mustached and shirtless (with the exception of Jonathan Knight, who’s sporting a modest white T and bearing an uncomfortable resemblance to Adrien Brody). So, what do you think of the guys’ new… More »


10 ’90s Musicians You Forgot About — Where Are They Now?

Basically, if I had my way, I’d spend all of my time thinking about and researching the ’90s. But since that’s not a viable career option, I suppose this gallery of 10 ’90s superstars will have to do. After the jump, what happened to the guy from Teenage Fanclub, the dude from Suede, and eight… More »


A Gross, Disgusting Look Inside Fraternity Life

In the mid-’90s, Todd Phillips made a documentary about the secret life of frat houses for HBO. The cable channel opted never to air the special, but it was recently unearthed and thrown up on YouTube. As you might imagine, much of what Phillips and his doc team unearth is pretty appalling. Frat pledges are… More »

’90s Dance Tunes As They Always Should Have Been

’90s Teenybopper Crushes Presently Unworthy Of Our Love

Most of us recall the vague sense of pain accompanied by pining for a man who would never know we exist. Luckily, many of our crushes of yore seem much less intimidating now.

Old-School Wednesdays: Extreme’s “More Than Words”

At first glance, this 1990 track by rockers Extreme seems like a really sweet love song. But then you start thinking about it — what is “more than words to show you feel that your love for me is real”? A blow job? Anal? OK, fine, maybe I’m just a cynic. … More »


R.I.P. The ’90s, We Miss You … Kind Of

I’ll take 94 seconds of the ’90s if that’s all I can get. I can’t believe I’m feeling even the littlest bit of nostalgia for the decade of my teen years. But let’s be honest, I’m kind of glad it’s over. It certainly is a bittersweet symphony, this life. [BuzzFeed] … More »

Taste The Nostalgia: 1994 X-Girl Fashion Show

Here’s a reminder of the days when indie fashion was fun, lighthearted, and embracing of all different body types. Remember the label X-Girl?
