    I'm not an Xer or Millennial....

    ...I was born in 1980 and I'm from the 1990s generation. I remember the 1990s from beginning to end. It was my decade, my time and I enjoyed it! I listened to Lisa Stansfield, Cathy Dennis, Mariah Carey, Karyn White, Exposé, Wild Orchid, just to name a few. I was a gamer: into NES, SNES, Sega/Sega Genesis, N64. Sonic the Hedgehog was my absolute favorite! I watched VH1 everyday...best times ever!

    I still remember when MTV had zero commercials, before it was bought out by Viacom. 90s were the last hippie days. Oh and remember flannels and bell-bottoms?!! Beavis & Butthead, Ren & Stimpy? Desperate and Dateless hoested by Jenny McCarthy & Carmen Electra. Brooke Burke & her travel show. Janet Jackson & Escapade.

    I'm totally with you. I never really felt like I fit into any generation. I feel like I suffer from lost child syndrome, not fitting in. Distant memories of those days are comforting.

    I sometimes still play Bubble Bobble on my P.C. Remember Attari, and drive in movie theaters??... when arcades were the thing, and roller skating rinks with disco nights.

    Lisa Seinfeld, Cathy Dennis, Suzanne Vega, Surface, Tommy Page!!:

    Generation Y

    I can't tell much difference between the post-digital Xs and my fellow early Ys. Hell, my dad was an early X. So different from late Xs that I don't see how that group is classed as a single generation.

    I think this generation stuff is all screwed up now. lol

    Yeah, I think all early '80 babies can relate to this. I don't identify with X or Millennial either. This article talks about our viewpoint. https://www.businessinsider.com/xenn...-gen-x-2017-11

    They call us Xennials, a "micro-generation".

    there is no such thing as "1990s generation"
    how do you think that make those older 90s kids born in 85 and 86 feel? ive never seen people boasting so much about
    being 90s kids as them


    you are Gen X using certain definitions and Gen Y using others, no matter how you look at you are a cusper
    some people would call you Xennial

    Generation Y

    Personally, I'm Gen Y but I like the 70s.

    All the stuff you're talking about bugs me though. I think it's partly a choice. You are from 1980 you could be like "yes I'm Gen Y!!!"


    You chose that.

    Personally I feel a deep sense of connection from Gen Y from the Bernie Sanders run from 2016. And even before that. I don't care about the 90s. I actually feel kind of a sense of ...hostility...towards the 90s. I like my early childhood in the 80s and then the 00s.

    I like the Mason jars and hipsters and homesteading. I like Lana del Rey and The Weeknd.


    I like stuff like this:



    If there was a decade I could punch in the face, it would be the 90s. I hate the 90s that much.

    '79 baby here. For me I think, I felt brainwashed by what seemed extremist in one way, the super health conscience types and then the hippies that lived a happy life. I felt torn between the two, like where do I fit in? Who is me? Today, I'm still trying to answer that question. Why must I like one type of prepared egg, when I can like different kinds all together or based on context. Why does it help to place me in group that is supposed to define me, like race or gender. Does it help me?

    I wish, I could have lived in the 70s, but when I ask someone who did, they said they hated it, so I guess I only get to see the good side of it.

    Waxing nostalgic? I grew up with a bunch of 80s cartoons and such I still remember, but I was also into the 90s stuff. Sonic was my jam. I got the Genesis for my 10th birthday. I grew up with the NES and remember trading games with my neighbors, who also had an NES. Got into Contra that way. I never got to play SNES except at friends' houses, but I did later get to enjoy the awesomeness that is Chrono Trigger. Later on, when my brother and I got the N64 we played Mario Kart so much we learned every shortcut and even unintentional ways to skip large chunks of tracks. Later learned that it was a thing called speedrunning.

    Main thing for me was anime. I got into it when it was catching on early on. Dragonball before DBZ, and then Sailor Moon. Even my ID comes from a very 90s anime.

    For songs, it was Gloria Estefan, and all the dance music that was coming out at the time: 2 Unlimited, SNAP!, Corona, and so forth. I even had a cassette tape of Jock Jams Vol 1. Also props if you can remember that endlessly played song on the radio from Ace of Base. I legit got sick of being in stores I heard that song so much while shopping.

    Cable wasn't something I had on a steady basis and I didn't really watch TV except in binges... kind of like I do now with Netflix come to think of it.

    Corona:
