Looking back on the '90s, the decade looms large in our mind's eye. We tend to romanticize everything about it and, hey, I'll be the first to admit we '90s kids sometimes get a little carried about with attribution. In reality, there are lots o' things that only seem like they're from the '90s, but actually aren't — yet we still lay claim to them. Or, you know, honestly believe they must be from that beloved decade.
If you're an older Millennial like I am, the lines get really blurry. You were born in the '80s, grew up in the '90s, and were a teen in the '00s, so it's easy to mix up memories from all three time periods. It all just kind of blends together into the great big nostalgic ball that is your childhood. It's no surprise then there are quite a few things from the '80s that the '90s get credit for. The '80s aren't the only decade getting robbed of their due credit, though — the '70s, the early '00s... even the '60s get credit snatched by the '90s.
