Sorry, but my productivity just went to zero because I’m going to spend the rest of the afternoon pressing the tiny David Hasselhoff button on my new favorite website, The ’90s Button. Click on the Hasselhoff icon, and a fresh ’90s video will get served up directly to you. So far, I’ve watched vids from Fat Boy Slim (“Funk Soul Brother”), Ini Kemoze (“Here Comes the Hotstepper!”) and, like, five Take That cuts. It just hit me with “Runaway Train” by Soul Asylum. This thing goes deep. Anyway, it’s been nice knowing you all, but this is my new life now. [The ’90s Button]

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 go?

Why we love them: They were great doodling inspiration– as long as you got the proportions of the middle squiggle right. And aside from showing off your rad artistic skills, you could buy the necklaces that split the yin and the yang and give half to your gym partner as a sign of everlasting friendship.

Would we wear them now: Negative. But not because we wouldn’t want to, because they literally ceased to exist. And maybe we wouldn’t want to.

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 when peppy pop stars like Christina started sporting them? Reveal your true identity, bandanna.

Why we love it: Because we COULD be Tupac or Axl Rose or Christina just by the fold of a square piece of fabric. And they were super cheap, and could even function as a shirt when we had no tits (thank you, youth).

Would we wear it now? Who says I’m not wearing one as I write this…

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. There’s nothing wrong with a little nostalgia every now and then, right? 

What it is: Power beads. the colored bracelets that determined who you were.

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 excesses of our best decade, from Marty Beckerman, author of the new book ’90s IslandRead more on TruTV…
