About This Quiz

The '90s were a time of great change. Glam rock died off. Grunge and alternative took its place. Flannel shirts, baggy jeans, and Timberlands made their way to closets from Seattle to New York and beyond. The World Wide Web introduced itself to the world and has become a permanent fixture ever since. The first file sharing service, Napster changed the way we listened to music. The '90s were the beginning of some of our greatest technology like Google, Windows, Apple and many others. So many things came and went, too.

What were the things you remember best? Was it movies, music, clothes or television shows? Major blockbusters like" Titanic" and "Jurassic Park" captured people's imaginations all over the world. "Friends," "That 70s Show" and so many other sitcoms had people glued to their television sets. We first got to know "The Simpsons" in the '90s. Grunge, gangsta rap and techno shook the music world. Video games replaced arcade games. Cross Colours, Benetton and Tommy Hilfiger sparked the bright fashion craze.
