Claire Krieger, For The Miami Student


In the 1990s, we were all playing with our Bop-its, keeping our tamagotchis alive, watching some of the most quality television ever made on Nickelodeon and listening to our favorite music on our discmans. One song that probably spent some time playing from your discman was Hanson’s “MMMBop.” The trio of brothers is touring once again and has shocked fans recently by announcing the release of their own brand of beer, appropriately named “MMMHop.”

Some of your favorite ’90s artists are still performing or are in the spotlight for other reasons and others seem to have dropped off the face of the earth. Whether you were a Nirvana die-hard or had created your own Spice Girls name, your favorite ’90s artists may be involved in some surprising activities nowadays. While most people wouldn’t have been able to guess at the time, this is what the ’90s artist yearbook should have looked like.
