About This Quiz

The 1990s may have ended nearly 20 years ago, but that hasn't stopped them from being influential when it comes to modern fashion, music, film, art and more. Whether you are a '90s baby for real or just a '90s baby at heart, everyone looks back with fondness on the years of grunge, boy bands, jelly bracelets, rap, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and more. There is no denying that the music, film and TV were at distinctive peaks in the '90s. In the '90s the fringe became mainstream, the weird became cool and the fringe was put center stage. 

Was "Seinfeld" appointment television for you? How about "The Simpsons"? When you weren't watching TV, what fashions did you wear, and which high-fashion models did you admire? Oh, and which artists' CDs did you own?

Can you identify Cosmo, Bart and Urkel, and can you explain why they're iconic figures? Do you remember which film featured a couple in love, leaning into the wind on the bow of a ship? 

So how much do you actually remember about the pop culture scene before the new millennium? Take this '90s quiz and put your memory (or just the stuff you've read) to the test.
