50 Things that happened in the 90s that will make you feel old! Part 2...

25. It's been nearly a quarter of a century since Nigel Benn fought Chris Eubank...
Just as this generation will look back on the Carl Froch and George Groves fights, we can say we were there when the original British grudge match took place... in 1990!

24. If Neil and Tony still lived together it wouldn't be funny anymore...
It would just be weird that two 52-year-old men were still roommates. That's right, Men Behaving Badly first hit our screens in 1992.

23. Even after 25 years we still love this scene...
Funny how? Like I'm a clown? I amuse you? This menacing scene from Goodfellas still has us lads quoting Joe Pesci's famous line.



22. Fanny packs were cool...
Or so we were led to believe. Even Dwayne Johnson struggles to "Rock" this look! See what I did there? Did you see? Oh shut up, you probably owned a fanny pack!

21. We shaved logos and brands into our hair...
I'm not sure how the craze got started, but it wasn't an uncommon sight in the early 90s to see someone with Nike or Adidas shaved into the back of their hair. Personally I went for WWF, although it was in a barbers so it looked pretty shit and the other kids teased me asking why I had World Wildlife Fund shaved onto my bonce. Sigh.

20. We were there when the East Coast - West Coast beef kicked off...
And it is testament to the music that there are kids born in the 90s who are still listening to 2Pac and Notorious B.I.G. songs today even though they were both murdered over 15 years ago and both cases remain unsolved.



19. Your bedroom probably looked like this...
We were all raving in the 90s. Well, that's when we wasn't at school of course. And just because we couldn't go to all night illegal field raves, it didn't stop us sticking flyers all over our bedrooms walls. Everybody had the Dreamscape: Woodstock 2 flyer on their wall. Everybody.

18. And it's likely you owned a Fantazia bomber jacket...
Or something similar. In order to keep in with the cool crowd you convinced your parents that £70 for this item of clothing was essential. Then you'd go home and listen to a pirate radio station like Touchdown FM where they'd play music like...

17. I'm Raving, I'm Raving...
In my bedroom. With my flyers on the wall. And my Fantazia jacket on. Again, I can't stress the importance that you weren't actually at a rave (after all, you were 14), but once that piano rift hit... forget about it!



16. We must just be the only generation to got to drink transparent Coca-Cola...
22 years ago Coca-Cola brought us clear cola when Tab Clear hit our fridges. The fad didn't last long as by 1994 it was no longer being sold, mainly because it tasted pretty rank. But hey, they tried!

15. They are now remaking shows from our era...
You know you're getting old when this happens. The rich kids of Beverly Hills 90210 first hit our screens in 1990! That means most of the cast are now in their 40s, apart from Luke Perry. He was 40 when they made the show.

14. It doesn't matter how old you are this is still one of the best things ever...
It's Wrestlemania VI. It's Hulk Hogan vs The Ultimate Warrior. It's 1990 and you're 12-years-old. And now you're 36 and this still gets your excited!



13. Lads mags slowly descended into porn for cowards...
In the 90s our favourite female celebrities started to get their kit off more often to the point where you no longer had to embarassingly hide a copy of a porno mag inside a newspaper, and instead you proudly bought FHM or Loaded because, you know, you liked the articles. Plus that blonde bird from that soap got her baps out.

12. You had a proper computer...
Believe it or not, but that Amiga 500 that you spent countless hours on playing Sensible Soccer or Championship Manager actually stopped being made in 1991, which means it is older than some of the people you work with in your office!

11. We will Never Forget...
Well I won't anyway. If there is one thing we knew how to do in the 1990s it was boy bands. Whether it was five bad boys with the power to rock you or everybody in the house of love, the 90s had it's fair share of all male pop groups. But there was only one group that really mattered and 19 years ago we were all drunkenly singing along at the end of the night to this:



10. Gazza cried in 1990...
And 24 years later we're all still crying. Forget 1966, we were too young for that. But this is the World Cup we will tell our kids about - the one where we nearly made it. And then we lost on penalty's to the Germans.

9. Okay, we might talk about this one as well...
Hey, when you think about it, England were pretty good in the 90s! We made it to two semi-finals, the second at Euro 96 when we bought into the fact that Football Was Coming Home. And then we lost on penalty's to the Germans.

8. Kevin Arnold would be 58-years-old this year...
Was there a better show on TV in the 90s than The Wonder Years? Fred Savage (who happens to be 38 now) played the part of young Kevin, who would now be pushing towards retirement age if the show was still running today.



7. The last time you ate a Marathon was 23 years ago...
It was 1991 when the chocolate bar changed it's name to Snickers and it is 16 years since you had an Opal Fruit (aka Starburst)!

6. Alcoholic Lemonade was the best thing since sliced bread...
Especially if you happened to just reach the legal age to drink alcohol and therefore hadn't quite required the taste for beer yet but were still adamant on getting pissed every Friday. Hooch first launched 19 years ago in 1995.

5. Geri Halliwell's famous Brit appearance was 17 years ago...
And I'm not talking about the Union Jack dress either! While that might remain the iconic image from the 1997 Brit performance, most lads also got pretty excited when Ginger Spice fell out of her dress.



4. You were massively disappointed with this film...
In 1991 you probably felt the title In Bed With Madonna was really misleading but you didn't really have anyone to complain to without coming across like a pervert.

3. The Fun House twins are now 42...
Yep, Melanie and Martina who helped out the mullet-haired Pat Sharpe on the real crazy show where anything goes and you fancied like mad are now in their 40's. Think that's bad, the Alessi Twins from Neighbours are now 48!

2. You have been telling people 'You can't handle the truth' for 22 years...
A truly great film can stand the test of times based on how long people quote that particular movie, and since 1992 we have been quoting Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men.

 


1. No one has had a curtains haircut since 1996... 
And looking at this picture, is there any wonder why? What the hell was I thinking?!
