’90s Comebacks: Which Ones Are Going To Work?

Previous / NextShift + → 1 of 13

The 1990’s were an awkward decade. People watched movies like Jurassic Park and Twister in the theaters, “Saved by the Bell” and “Friends” on the TV, and listened to grunge, punk and ska on cassettes or their Discman. A fashionable look involved flannel and a No Fear t-shirt or jelly shoes and slap bracelets for the ladies. It was a period that brought us the Gulf War, the first George Bush and Power Rangers.

Just when we thought that decade was firmly in our collective rearview mirror, news broke that bands like Garbage, The Cranberries and others were contemplating comebacks. What started as a dribble has erupted into a gushing flood of bands from the ’90s that are all releasing comeback albums in 2012. While we’re glad to see some make a return, others should have stayed on the shelf. Have a look through this list to see which comebacks will work, and which won’t.

    Dude, I was just watching Power Rangers today.

    I was just playing with pogs and asking around about if slap bracelets have really slit peoples wrists.

    Mild inaccuracy I feel I need to point out. The Offspring never really quit making music. Their last album actually received quite a bit of acclaim though it came out a few years ago. Sure they’re not going to be the same teen anthem band they once were, but I’d be inclined to think they don’t really mind.

    You missed out on S Club 7…. I was expecting a 0/100. What gives? :P

  • Brian

    How the hell did Snow get left off of this list?

  • Confusion

    To be honest I don’t know what S Club 7 is. Just Googled it. Still don’t know. Ex-Spice Girls with a TV show? Was not ever aware of that.

  • Confusion

    Is Snow coming back!? The probability of a Snow comeback is working out is 100%.

    Snow is forming a super group with the remaining member of Milli Vanilli, Bob Dylan and Teck from Real World Hawaii. Should be amazing.

    I wasn’t aware The Offspring ever left… much less needed a comeback.
