1990′s pop culture was a tapestry of high profile court cases, boy bands, political dramas, and other trends that captivated the minds of millions of people, and even cable providers. As the decade progressed, popular culture’s grip on society increased exponentially. People who consider the 1990s an essential time of their youth view 90s pop culture as a seminal influence on their young lives.
Perhaps one of the most indelible moments of the 1990s occurred during the early 90s when the O.J. Simpson murder trial captivated the United States. For most people, the Simpson murder trial began with the police chase of Simpson’s white Ford Bronco. Coined the “Trial of the Century” by the media, the O.J. Simpson murder trial split the country along racial lines like almost nothing has since. Simpson’s eventual “not guilty” verdict shocked the whole country and served to further divide the United States on the basis of race.
However, there were areas of 90s popular culture that brought people of all races together. Sports fit this role of peacemaker perfectly, and Michael Jordan’s basketball career was the most electrifying sports story of the decade. During the 90s, Michael Jordan won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and became a pop culture phenomenon that sold sneakers, sports drinks, jerseys, and even underwear.
In addition to marveling over the athletic prowess of Michael Jordan, 90s kids also treasured the kid’s television networks like Nickelodeon. Indeed, Nickelodeon programming helped to define the childhood of millions of children in the United States. Many kids were scared and thrilled by watching Nick’s Are You Afraid of the Dark, laughed at the hilarious sketch show All That, and were delighted at the Secret World of Alex Mack. These shows, combined with all the other Nickelodeon programming, greatly influenced popular culture in the 90′s.
Overall, popular culture in the 1990s was a many varied and exciting thing. Adults, teens, and kids participated equally in the culture, even enjoying some of the same things at the same time. Even though there were some areas of conflict, popular culture in the 1990s was generally an area for people to come together.
