28 Things Only True 90s Kids Will Remember, #3 Was So Frustrating.

AOL and its notorious dial sound.

Every decade has something memorable and specific to that time period. That's what makes every decade so special and unique. The 70's were all about peace and love. The 80's were all about rock n' roll. And the 90's, well... Let's just say it was a combination of things. I like to think the 90's was a staple decade in our history (but that's probably because I was a 90's baby myself). The 90's was when people really started using the Internet, when cell phones became more and more popular, when classic movies like the Titanic were made, when television cartoons were THE BEST. If you were a 90's kid, you know what I'm talking about and you'll definitely appreciate all the things listed below. Sit back and enjoy a nostalgic stroll down memory lane.
