Don’t believe the hype, the 1990’s will never die. There’s no doubt the era turned the music industry upside down.

The music was different than what was heard before, yet oddly familiar to the ear. Considered to be the golden age of music, where raunchy, yet family friendly, rugged, yet heart warming and politically diverse.

Its easy to say it was one of the best eras of music. We were educated The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, told to never chance waterfalls by TLC, and taught to, “never trust a big butt and smile” by Bell Biv DeVoe.
