15 Struggles You Won't Understand If You Weren't A Teen In The Late 90s

- Page 1


The late 90s were one of the weirdest times for trying to be a pop-culture-savvy teen. Grunge was over, Y2K loomed over everything, and all of our media, from the music to the movies to the TV, was just friggin WEIRD.
