1996 ~ 1979

Your 1996 Theme Song Is: 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins

Shakedown 1979
Cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
What's Your 1996 Theme Song?

This was definitely a favorite song at the time. Smashing Pumpkins performed a great, free outdoor show at the Minneapolis Aquatennial. Then-mayor Sharon Sayles Belton even officially proclaimed it "Smashing Pumpkins Day" in the city.

One of the questions has to do with 1996 "fashion," if you can call it that:
  1. What 90s fashion trend did you most eagerly participate in?
    • Doc Martens
    • Flannel shirts
    • Baggy jeans
    • Bowling shirts
    • Denim overalls
    • Colored jeans
Now that's a tough one! Doc Martens, flannel shirts, and baggy jeans were the main staples of my wardrobe, but I wore ALL of those things in 1996, except maybe the colored jeans (I think those were big in 1992-93, not 1996). So comfortable, so Seattle.

Were denim overalls and colored jeans even part of the 90's?

I think the overalls were very early 90's. I had a couple of pairs, all of them coloured. They were short ones. It was cool to wear them with one side undone a la Donnie Walhberg.
