When it comes to music, the 1990’s probably saw everything that needs to be seen.
There’s pop music, which was HUGE in the 1990’s, with the appearance of artists like Britney Spears, boy bands like Backstreet Boys, and pop groups like Spice Girls.
And then there’s hip-hop. People say that the 90’s was the golden age of the hip-hop genre and gave birth to new genres like contemporary R&B, hip hop soul, and g-funk.
Then again, 90’s music wouldn’t have been 90’s music without rock music! There were grunge, industrial rock, and alternative rock, and smaller rock genres like ska, punk rock, and nu metal. The 90’s saw the rise of bands like Nirvana, Greenday, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and No Doubt.
Of course, the decade also saw a new generation of soul artists, with hits from Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, and Shania Twain. And Latino singers saw worldwide fame, including Selena, Enrique Iglesias, and Ricky Martin.
