15 Things That Were Actually Cool in the 90s

Break.com Staff by Break.com Staff on Feb. 19, 2013

1. Saved by the Bell

Cool show, right?  Would you willingly spend time with any of these people today?  Screech makes porn, ya know.

2. New Kids on the Block

These guys were like a quintet of Biebers back in the day, girls loved them.  On purpose.

3. Hammer Pants

This was actually a trend.  People went out and bought these pants.  And wore them.

4. Benetton

Look how happy and technicolor everyone is.

5. Kirk Cameron

One of the biggest stars on TV at the time and now he thinks bananas explain Jesus.

6. Overalls

Look how happy Justin Timberlake is with those guys whose calls he probably never returns.

7. Reebok Pumps

Reebok managed to convince people that this was a good, practical idea.

8. Those Cones

Madonna has endured decades and is still known for this.  Like literally, this didn't end her career.

9. Ghost

Patrick Swayze returned from the dead to do pottery with Demi Moore's boy haircut and everyone thought it was OK.

10. Creed

It's like Nickelback's less fun grandfather.

11. Encino Man

Everyone loved this movie.  The movie starring Pauly Shore, Brendan Frasier and Samwise Gamgee, about a caveman who goes to highschool.

12. FUBU

For us.  By us. 

13.Bicycle Shorts

You'll notice Axl is not on a bicycle here at all. 

14. TLC

Easily one of the biggest girl groups of the 90s.  And one of them burned down Andre Rison's house on purpose.

15. Mad About You

One of the longest running yet most terrible sitcoms of all time, they paid both of these people $1 million per episode to produce a show more painful than root canal.

Now I remember why I wasn't popular, and why I did well in school. These things were popular; school was my only escape from the reality I was in.

Wasn't Hypercolor shirts a 90's thing where you'd put your hand on the shirt and it changed colors.

I was born in 1975 and loved the 80's and 90's. I sometimes still watch Saved by the Bell for nostalgia, and it's still pretty funny. I miss those years...and yes, Saturday morning cartoons with the Smurfs was the best.

creed sounds like the singer is pushing out a ass full of poop all at once. kinda like a constipated person pushing as hard as they can to poop. On that note, nickelback singer sounds like he just pushed out that ass full of poop LOL anything with pauly shore in the 90's was awesome

When was Kirk Cameron ever cool? He was popular, but that doesn't mean he was cool. Now he is just a sad religious nutjob.

back in days, the guys would play a guessing game which BSB or Nsync member is gay. Just for fun.

You would've had a blast, I can honestly say 80's and 90's were the best years, music still sounded like music

I was born in '82, so I got to see a lot of this first hand :D And we should have more people like you, born *IN* the 90's and aren't total douche bags.

I hated Paul Riser yet watched that stupid show. Helen Hunt's butt kept me watching reruns.

Saved by the Bell was/is cool, New Kids on the Block no different than One Direction and Hammer is still better than Lil Wayne
