15 Songs Every '90s Baby Girl Remembers
Rolling Stone

If you were born or grew up during the early/mid 1990s, you know how great it was. You'd come home from school, feed your Neopet, grab a bottle of Surge (which is now extinct from grocery stores) and turn on MTV to jam out to all your favorite songs. Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Spice Girls and NSYNC, just to name a few, dominated our childhood. These days, 98 percent of the music played on mainstream radio sucks. These 2000 babies don't know a thing about good music or how cool it was to grow up in the '90s.

Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we, and reflect on all the awesome songs that shaped our childhood.

1. "He Loves U Not" by Dream

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017937460776791-1098180205_160on2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=213&h=c7ff8428ee2374fc955835d9991141b51cad3044f4acd381cf69b30f90248c29&size=980x&c=2038685739 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017937460776791-1098180205_160on2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D213%26h%3Dc7ff8428ee2374fc955835d9991141b51cad3044f4acd381cf69b30f90248c29%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2038685739%22%7D" expand=1]

If this song didn't make you want to throw on a crop top and grab your karaoke machine, you're lying. Who else pretended to sing this to the girl who kept flirting with your crush?

2. "Hey Juliet" by LMNT

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360179412810876561731946678_160ozm.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=912&h=df820b308da928615fa7024969dc1fcec13d8d0cf60714a55cb1054f1fd1854c&size=980x&c=2129530002 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360179412810876561731946678_160ozm.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D912%26h%3Ddf820b308da928615fa7024969dc1fcec13d8d0cf60714a55cb1054f1fd1854c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2129530002%22%7D" expand=1]

We all secretly wished a group of cute guys would sing this to us whenever our mom dragged us to the laundry mat.

3. "Candy" by Mandy Moore

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017943605860108-1068118189_160p7w.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=74&h=d3a629b35d9522ddbda6ee9fe8c384e78e2ef92daa07135f5b2132d250b5e8ef&size=980x&c=425756398 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017943605860108-1068118189_160p7w.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D74%26h%3Dd3a629b35d9522ddbda6ee9fe8c384e78e2ef92daa07135f5b2132d250b5e8ef%26size%3D980x%26c%3D425756398%22%7D" expand=1]

Mandy Moore before she was Mandy Moore.

4. "I Want It That Way" by Backstreet Boys

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360179458190762791786603609_160pgn.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=100&h=d9f95c591331d4bd4ce47d7536a7aa5bd672331c96e9b20a9f5e24365be3c108&size=980x&c=3608867878 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360179458190762791786603609_160pgn.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D100%26h%3Dd9f95c591331d4bd4ce47d7536a7aa5bd672331c96e9b20a9f5e24365be3c108%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3608867878%22%7D" expand=1]

Let's be real here, we all wanted to marry Nick Carter. And if this song didn't make your little adolescent heart hurt, you obviously missed something. Who else remembers when Burger King used to put Backstreet Boy CDs in their kids meals? No? Just me?

5. "Bye Bye Bye" by NSYNC

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017948132731680-1331435272_160pom.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=321&h=ca6bca07d95e81ac28a4f4b53ec5347a604bf92b0ff58959d85aa156453b8eef&size=980x&c=2397024627 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017948132731680-1331435272_160pom.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D321%26h%3Dca6bca07d95e81ac28a4f4b53ec5347a604bf92b0ff58959d85aa156453b8eef%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2397024627%22%7D" expand=1]

Even though Justin Timberlake's hair looked like an uncooked pack of Ramen noodles, we still loved him.

6. "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017949954325275-1459030421_160pu4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=255&h=995f43e4822bd5faff5834dcda78f35b1942f8fa28acd26521b420917187e429&size=980x&c=4170877325 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017949954325275-1459030421_160pu4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D255%26h%3D995f43e4822bd5faff5834dcda78f35b1942f8fa28acd26521b420917187e429%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4170877325%22%7D" expand=1]

This song turned us all into gothic and emo kids at some point. Not to mention that was the best music video ever?

7. "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" by Eiffel 65

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360179525310871051875935385_160q55.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=664&h=34edd09acaa9d8796959c4091c1bf6f4f213216f0e36b60bd68ebb7c180c8aef&size=980x&c=3499907202 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360179525310871051875935385_160q55.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D664%26h%3D34edd09acaa9d8796959c4091c1bf6f4f213216f0e36b60bd68ebb7c180c8aef%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3499907202%22%7D" expand=1]

Even though the music video was the most terrifying thing in existence (seriously, what were those things?), this song was still a banger.

8. "In the End" by Linkin Park

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017954590992570-293939898_160qb9.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=24&h=5a592452b63c2aee5ee607bf39737a76126ea3303b6197ed6fb55a6350f6e5fc&size=980x&c=1027971048 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017954590992570-293939898_160qb9.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D24%26h%3D5a592452b63c2aee5ee607bf39737a76126ea3303b6197ed6fb55a6350f6e5fc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1027971048%22%7D" expand=1]

If this song didn't stir up the teenage angst brewing inside you, were you really living? This song was so deep.

9. "Summer Girls" by Lyte Funkie Ones (LFO)

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017957598681982-457735249_160qmj.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=881&h=b71ed09f86aca76631f0b7786145984733cbb5c224a89d23bbfa931a487e2617&size=980x&c=155251811 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017957598681982-457735249_160qmj.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D881%26h%3Db71ed09f86aca76631f0b7786145984733cbb5c224a89d23bbfa931a487e2617%26size%3D980x%26c%3D155251811%22%7D" expand=1]

Even though we were too young to realize how the lyrics to this song made absolutely no sense, we still loved it and wondered what Abercrombie and Fitch was. (We'd eventually find out in 2006/2007 when we all started wearing it.)

10. "Come Clean" by Hilary Duff

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017961392622137-716419069_160r0l.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=808&h=8b47c7dc3755d7eb8958cd6c279545ed4d4c11f922dc55adb347f233071bafed&size=980x&c=2799632896 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017961392622137-716419069_160r0l.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D808%26h%3D8b47c7dc3755d7eb8958cd6c279545ed4d4c11f922dc55adb347f233071bafed%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2799632896%22%7D" expand=1]

Hilary Duff was the queen of the Disney Channel and basically ruled our childhood. Between "Lizzie McGuire," "The Lizzie McGuire Movie" and her flawless album, we almost didn't make it out alive. All hail Hilary.

11. "Leave (Get Out)" by JoJo

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017964972298804-2038483138_160re6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=611&h=8d2692a935b8f5f13a1072abf55d3a2020bedf36236ff0dd3dbeae4c5fe2e830&size=980x&c=24356144 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017964972298804-2038483138_160re6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D611%26h%3D8d2692a935b8f5f13a1072abf55d3a2020bedf36236ff0dd3dbeae4c5fe2e830%26size%3D980x%26c%3D24356144%22%7D" expand=1]

We all knew every word to this song and we weren't ashamed of it, and there's also a 95 percent chance we all wanted to raid JoJo's closet.

12. "Genie in a Bottle" by Christina Aguilera

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017967590683877-159871424_160rqk.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=854&h=ccc259be20ac86a0886255b8c6dd4f1edfd267a4931cc99a3ca962665699b84d&size=980x&c=2886523164 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017967590683877-159871424_160rqk.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D854%26h%3Dccc259be20ac86a0886255b8c6dd4f1edfd267a4931cc99a3ca962665699b84d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2886523164%22%7D" expand=1]

How did we not realize how sexually explicit this song was? And how did our parents allow us to listen to it?

13. "Oops!... I Did it Again" by Britney Spears

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F636017969538054272-929548362_160rxw.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=22&h=a7d9c6c09e1f445d40875d91a6afec5b9733632c05fc184ad1d75b12af206b9a&size=980x&c=3671861711 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F636017969538054272-929548362_160rxw.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D22%26h%3Da7d9c6c09e1f445d40875d91a6afec5b9733632c05fc184ad1d75b12af206b9a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3671861711%22%7D" expand=1]

This music video slayed all of our lives. And I also may or may not have sung this at my elementary school's talent show.

14. "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F17%2F6360179723425248881027796198_160s5x.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=21&h=91104aa0db471566dd40c984fb833c6395729bf40b016c437a72c040e145590b&size=980x&c=1137471649 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F17%252F6360179723425248881027796198_160s5x.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D21%26h%3D91104aa0db471566dd40c984fb833c6395729bf40b016c437a72c040e145590b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1137471649%22%7D" expand=1]

Did anybody else learn their first curse word from this song?

15. "Spice Up Your Life" by Spice Girls

Not only did we have this gem to jam out to, but we also had the movie "Spice World" to watch and Spice Girl dolls to play with. I personally had a Sporty Spice doll and she was amazing.


While all of us have reached adulthood, let's never forget the awesome era that raised us and the music that accompanied it. Truth be told, I still listen to these songs today and have all of them on my iTunes. Even though we '90s babies are no longer babies, these songs will never fail to bring us back to the good 'ol days.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

Flickr/John Henderson

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season.
