30 Things That Defined The '90s But Would Be Out Of Place Today

List RulesVote up the items that are forever stuck in the '90s.

Ah, the '90s. It was the decade of playing outside until "the street lights came on," Saturday morning cartoons, and the "Eight-CDs-For-A-Penny" clubs. It was also the decade that gave us the internet, portable music, and all sorts of gadgets that cost a small fortune in 2020. But there are certain items that truly defined the '90s, so much so that seeing someone with them today would just seem out of place and downright strange. Here, we've gathered a list of items that could only exist in the '90s, ranked by how odd it would be to see someone with them today.
