When did you guys start becoming nostalgic? I want to hear your guys' input on this. For me, it started a few years back, I also got into decadeology and found this website around that time...

Just this year actually. But I'm not nostalgic all the time because I like to live in the present.

I started becoming nostalgic around my sophomore year of high school, around 2014. For some reason I started missing my PS2 and remembering all the music I liked back in middle school and before.

I've always been somewhat nostalgic - this can quite clearly be seen from the stuff in my room. On average, the stuff in this photo is about 15 years old, even though I was only born in 2000. I've had quite a big interest in the 90s for a long time, since it's always felt modern but without the fakeness of the current decade. I actually don't like much from now - Trump, Brexit, the UK government's authoritarian attitude towards everything, nannystatism, the intrusiveness of ads, very muted looking tight clothing, censorship, technology that breaks within months of purchase, overproduced forgettable music; you name it. This decade feels almost as bad as the 1970s, which many call the golden age of everything, so this may just be me being me.

This photo could have very easily been taken in 2002... Nope, it's 2017...

I completely agree. I've always had an interest in the '90s as well, particularly considering that I was born in 1999. It's actually my favourite decade for music and pop culture in general. I like how authentic pop culture was; it wasn't glorified or over-commercialised like how it has been since the start of the 2000s, in my opinion. The '90s also had more of an identity, as did the 50s-80s. Really, the 2000s and 2010s may as well be one, big blended decade.

Yeah, I agree. With music, take Foo Fighters. Most people my age who like them are most into their recent album, Concrete and Gold, but I find it too overproduced and forgettable sounding. On the other hand, early songs by Dave Grohl such as Good Grief (1992; released 1995) sound really lively in contrast, especially his slightly sloppy 1992 demo version (look up "Dave Grohl Good Grief Demo" on YouTube and you'll find it).

It's interesting that you say that, because most people my age only like their most well-known songs, like "Everlong", "Learn to Fly" and "The Pretender". I prefer their earlier work as well. Have you listened to the Nirvana song "Marigold", which has Dave Grohl on lead vocals?

Yep, the B-side of their single Heart Shaped Box, which I actually own an old CD copy of. Grohl originally recorded it for his Late! CD in 1990.

I started feel nostalgic when the world around me started to change. I am born in a very interesting time in music. Now I'm living in a very interesting time in technology. Both worlds feels apart from each other.
