34 flashback to the 90s photos

Kids who grew up in the 90s are approaching middle age and never knew life with a smartphone. Tetris had arrived, Pokémon cards hit the scene, most people used cassettes to record music off MTV and fashion often left a lot to be desired. The 90s was a vibrant decade that seems so long ago to kids today.

People look back at the 90s with nostalgia and love taking trips down memory lane. Here are 34 photos that pay tribute to an era that brought us the internet, the grunge scene and so much more...
