Being a fan of music from the 1990s, a lot of my peers will tell me how they feel “old” and “outdated” when it comes to music. The thing is, music from the 90s is in it’s “awkward phase” in life. It’s not old enough to be “retro” like the 1980s… or even old enough to be considered “oldies”. But it’s not current enough to please a lot of the teenagers of today. The decade’s time will come, where fashions and trends will be revived by kids who think they’re doing something “new”.
Also, if you’re feeling this way about your favorite songs from the 1990s, I do want to offer you this. One of the biggest hits world wide was PSY’s “Gangnam Style”. After the song had gotten a little stale and wasn’t going anywhere else on the charts, to what decade and artist did he turn to? The 1990’s own M.C. Hammer!
If you’re still not convinced, I would also like to point out that Matchbox 20 is still going strong with a world tour in progress, Blues Traveler recently celebrated 25 years as a band, and Hootie and the Blowfish still get together and jam.
