To think 90s Britpop/Indie music was just so cool

Just rediscovered one of my old Shine albums and have been bopping around the kitchen to the sounds of Blur, Oasis, Suede, Ash, Pulp, Elastica, Sleeper etc. Had kinda forgotten just how great all that music was...feeling nostalgic for the long hot summer of 1995 now.... Any other fans out there?

Me, I get ever so nostalgic for that era. So many good looking and sounding bands.

The 70's were cooler.

Oh yes!

I had such a cool CD collection in the mid-90s. Sighs nostalgically...

Me too: 1995 music was awesome

I was up to my ears in nappies and sleepless nights then so it kind of passed me by.

I get nostalgic for the late 70's to late 80's.

I loved the 90's. My teenage years.

I loved it , it was my era a great time on my life , I’ve heard some slightly older generation saying the nineties has no real identity of its own I completely disagree with that .

Oh Britrock! Yanbu.

Absolute 90s is always on at home. Happy days.

I loved that era! I have the TFI Friday album that was released a couple of years ago as a regular feature of my playlist.

I'm so happy to have been a teenager in the 90s. Indie/britpop/rock was a great soundtrack to it.
I really think we were the last generation of proper childhood etc...the pressures on young people today are so enormous, with social media, camera phones...every silly thing documented and exposed, bullying being something which is harder to escape from when it's mostly done through phones and laptops etc.

Yes, a lot of it was brilliant - a real golden age of music. That said, I've never got the fuss about Oasis - I've always found them hugely overrated. Stone Roses were way, way better.

Me me me! Been to see a lot bands the last few years too including the sleeper reunion. Now if only elastica would reform I could die happy...

Shine 4 is the best compilation album I've ever owned!! Makes me feel old because it's what aunts and uncles used to say at the time (and I thought they were old) but music nowadays is 90% crap

HiGunny Thu 10-Jan-19 13:11:27

I was a teenager through the 90s as well so agree completely @TheTrout. I would hate the pressures on teenage girls these days.

Elastica were just so godamn cool. I got my hair cut short like Justine, not sure I gave off the same vibe of coolness though 😁

ichifanny Thu 10-Jan-19 13:12:16

Blur , the stone roses , suede aaah what a time .

ichifanny Thu 10-Jan-19 13:12:39

I had an Elastica Vaseline t shirt

Meeeee! I was a teenager in the 90s. Also Caught the end of clubbing culture (im just a bit too young for raving, had been shut down by then).

kaytee87 Thu 10-Jan-19 13:14:13

There's a Spotify playlist called 'easy 90s' or something and it's amazing

AhhhHereItGoes Thu 10-Jan-19 13:15:28

Yes! I was born in 1990 (early) so mid to late 90s is the soundtrack to my youth.

ShannonRockallMalin Thu 10-Jan-19 13:18:11

I was an early 90s teenager. Loved that time, so much good music around. Went to my first Glastonbury in ‘92 after my GCSEs.

Azelma Thu 10-Jan-19 13:19:47

Oh yes. The glorious hot summer of 1995. I was 18 and had finished my A levels. Brilliant soundtrack to a fab time of my life.

My teenage era loved the 90s. Music was amazing, went to loads of gigs and started going to festivals towards the end of the decade. Fond memories and lots of fun ( which carried on into the 00's)
