1990s Holdovers

Although the Zeroes are certainly not a '90s clone, many cultural and social aspects of this decade are held over from the 1990s.

In other words, like the 1960s and 1970s go hand-in-hand, the 1990s and 2000s are both more or less the same era.

The best example, perhaps of a 1990s holdover is The Simpsons. From about fall of 1990 to the year 2000 the show was funny, but by about 2001 the show was becoming very tired and stretched out to the point of its existence being an annoyance.

Much of the rock music of the Zeroes is also '90s holdovers, including most numetal, Green Day, Weezer, Nickelback and the Foo Fighters. Maybe this is because Rock isn't all that popular anymore compared to Rap and Hip Hop.

In 2005, Mariah Carey decided that she needed to rule this decade as well as the '90s, proving that musical taste hasn't changed all that much since 1995.

Will we ever let go of our lattes and flannel? Ever?
