The 90’s were really quite a decade for technological advancements and breakthroughs. It was the era when we launched the Hubble Space Telescope and when the World Wide Web became truly world-wide thanks to more affordable home computers and dial-up ISP’s. But maybe most importantly of all, it was when VCR’s reigned supreme – allowing us all to obsessively re-watch movies and tape our favorite shows, cementing pop culture in our brains in a way that was perhaps more thorough than what was available to any previous generation.

These days, anything and everything can be called up on a whim, but the impressions left by those 90’s influences still feel as big as they ever have. Come with us on a trip down memory lane with these 13 tributes to 90’s nostalgia.

13. Mama always said

“I just felt like runnin’.” – dads

I met the lead singer of my favorite band and double exposed the pictures, I’m still mad about it.

Now we’re remembering things from another era that were about things from a previous era. This is going too far.

5. Disk to the rescue!

Most floppy disks held less than 2mb. Theoretically, they could store about 5 seconds of a modern Netflix stream.

If I could go back, I wouldn’t because honestly streaming and GPS and all that are just too good to live without. But it sure is fun to remember…
