When the ‘90s kicked off, the Berlin Wall had just fallen and soon other walls were coming down too – between public and private, news and entertainment, reality and fantasy. The winds of change brought new voices speaking hard truths and thrust sex and celebrity into the limelight like never before. Our collective tabloid obsessions were fueled by the birth of the internet, heralding a new era of mass information, and misinformation. The '90s Greatest Wiki
1 - A New Generation
In the ’90s, a new generation is on the march — baby boomers come of age and come to power as they revolutionize everything from politics and pop culture to aging. This generation doesn’t want to grow up. Plastic surgery takes off. Madonna reinvents the stadium tour and invents a new type of phenomenon — all-access celebrity. Bill Clinton comes to power despite a multitude of scandals.
2 - Reality Bites Back
As ’90s technology advances, the boundaries between fantasy and reality have blurred, in a world where wars are fought like video games and video games like wars, and nobody seems to know the difference. But when Hollywood harnesses godlike powers of creation, building new worlds and spawning new beasts, reality will never be the same again.
3 - Sex in the '90s
The AIDS crisis forces America to talk frankly about sex. With the floodgates open, porn becomes mainstream. Evangelical Christians mount a nationwide abstinence movement called True Love Waits, while the president finds himself embroiled in the biggest sex scandal of the decade. The press frenzy that ensued fuels the public appetite for sex and changes America’s view of the presidency.
4 - Caught On Camera
The ’90s is the era when real life mounts a TV takeover. The birth of reality TV blurs the boundary between fact and fiction, news turns into entertainment and everyday life plays out as high drama. From the brutal beating of Rodney King to the raw violence of the LA riots and the celebrity circus of the O.J. Simpson trial, every story unfolds in real time in front of the TV audience.
5 - The Price of Fame
A look at the decade when fascination with celebrities, scandal and gossip becomes a dangerous obsession. An explosion of new channels, magazines and websites creates an unprecedented hunger for content, with no story considered off-limits. As the press delves into the private lives of public figures and paparazzi follow celebrities’ every move, it’s only a matter of time until tragedy strikes.
6 - The Internet Revolution
In the ’90s, the internet’s birth heralds a new age, but even tech gurus like Bill Gates almost miss how revolutionary it will be. The web expands, and celebrities Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s stolen sex tape will have an unexpected effect on how the internet is used. Warning of the net’s dark side is missed, and the rush to invest makes big winners and even bigger losers in the dot-com bubble.
7 - Culture Wars
A new America emerges as voices speak their truth on the airwaves, resulting in controversy. “Seinfeld” dominates ratings but is accused of being too Jewish. “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” is crowned TV royalty, but some feel it doesn’t represent the reality of black America. Gay rights become a battleground led by Ellen DeGeneres, but for some, things are going too fast.
8 - The Tabloid Decade
The ’90s is the decade America becomes a nation hungry for scandal. Shock jocks like Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern rule the airwaves and even enter the political arena. While on TV, “The Jerry Springer Show” lets ordinary people make their most outrageous private stories public. The tabloid decade will create a new kind of star in Anna Nicole Smith, but ultimately it will also help destroy her.
9 - Enemies Within and Without
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the U.S. is without a real enemy. Anti-government conspiracies fueled by the internet fill the vacuum, taking mistrust to new heights. The FBI siege of Waco plays out against this backdrop, inspiring the biggest act of terror on U.S. soil: the Oklahoma bombing. While America is licking its wounds, al-Qaida is gaining ground under the radar.
10 - Generation Wired
It’s the early ’90s and the baby boomers’ babies — Generation X — are facing an identity crisis. A revolution is brewing as a small Seattle-based coffee shop, Starbucks, delivers Gen Xers to their promised land; a new band called Nirvana provides their spiritual leader; and a messiah of Silicon Valley comes out of the wilderness to arm the new generation with the gadgets of the future
