The Most Radical '90s Stock Photos That Ever Existed

The '90s were a magical time when language was changing, the Internet was birthing out of the brain of Al Gore, and a lot of the stock photography of the time was obsessed with showing off the tech wonderland that would come to be in the coming years. '90s stock photos are a mind-bending look into a past that was obsessed with the future, hoping that everyone would be living in a circuit board city pulled straight from a cyberpunk novel – also, feathered hair on men was still a thing for some reason. The funny '90s pictures on this list will either have you in stitches, or you’ll be regretting a lot of fashion choices that you made in the era - just make sure you don’t go postal!

'90s stock photography might contain some of the strangest images the world has ever seen. From a young Amy Poehler holding a bouquet of flowers (for real), to men and women riding the information super highway, the stock photos on this list will make you look at the last decade of the 20th century in a whole new, less flattering, light. Hopefully we won’t be looking back on the stock photos from the early 2000s in the same way, because everyone knows that modern stock photos are so totally bangin’.

Don’t forget to vote up the stock photos of the '90s that you think are all that and a bag of chips before you have to bounce.
