    When did the 90's truly end?

    Other than 1/1/2000. Culturally, when did things start becoming more 2000's-ish? I'd say 9/11 truly killed it off as it dampened the atmosphere of everything.

    Well early 90's were a lot like the eighties, just have to look at fashion to verify that... but still, it wasn't eighties either.

    I'd say at about 1995 culture began to shift toward the 2000 era, which was really a 1995 to 2005 period, I think. In 2005 we sort of hit this plateau in the economy that inevitably lead to the crash... but I suppose that's more economic than societal.

    So I'd agree about 9/11 adding a division on that era... 95 to 2001 was the late nineties and the early nineties was a bit different culture wise.

    Well if you want to get non-technical.....

    90-91: The Pre-90s 90s
    92-94: The Early 90s
    95-97: The Core 90s
    98-99: The Late 90s
    2000-2001/2002: The After-90s 90s

    To me the 90s ended when Electroclash became a thing... Around 2000-2002. It was the defining sound of my early teens.

    I agree that 9/11 changed everything, not just for the US, but for the world. If ever there was a distinct point in time someone could claim to be the end of an era, or the beginning of one, it's that day. Most "eras" beginning and end within a "period of time". Rarely do they shift on a single day, especially for damn near everyone on the planet.

    Technology has a bit to do with that though, what with live TV, the internet, etc. I image we'll have more days like that in the future. Hopefully not as tragic though. Could there be a day-shift of eras that is a happy one?

    Hmm. Now that's something to think about.

    9/11 probably marks it for me as well, but I think that just changed so many things...There was an outlook-shift there though that really helped usher in a new way for the decade to feel.

    That said, I will carry the 90s in my heart forever, so will they ever really end?

    Not only 9/11 but around the end of 2001 music was starting to change too. Things got more 00's-ish. (Britney Spears started getting more and more controversial) lol and that thing that happened to Mariah Carey on TRL!

    I'm of the opinion that the 2008 financial crisis will have a far more dramatic impact than 911 did, think about it, did 911 really have a lasting effect beyond the first couple of months after it happened. Americans went right back to what they were doing before like it never even happened it all, Bush told americans to spend and then(with the help of Alan Greenspan) created yet another bubble in real estate. I think the period from about the mid 1980s to the late 2000s was one distinct sociopolitical era in itself, the long boom, this was after the counter cultural revolution of the '60s and '70s but before the global financial crisis.

    The '90s and '00s kind of blur in together like the '60s and '70s do, it is hard to say "when" the '90s ended when post-grunge and baggy pants have only recently went out of style but I'd say around 2005 pop culturally with a gradual start in 2001(when urban pop became more popular and the boybands started dying out).

    when it was 1/1/2000, the 90's were already gone. The 90's ended on 12/31/1999.

    the 90's everyone wants back I'd say really ended when Kurt Cobain committed suicide, after that event the 90's were different. The thing about the 90's is that the 90's had so many waves that it was not a single cohesive cultural decade like the 1980's were.
