Updated 9/10/2023

Let’s be honest…everyone misses the ’90s. Even I (who was born in 1993, and only caught the tail end of it all) look back at the hilarious 90s slang terms in TV shows and just laugh my ass off.

The slang phrases that everyone thought was so cool back then seem just so ridiculous today.

And no, the irony is not lost on me that we came up with some pretty stupid slang phrases of our own in the 2000s as well…but that’s for another day and another random blog post!

For today, I thought I’d put together a compilation of my personal favorite ’90s slang terms for everyone’s amusement. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t totally cracking up in my cubicle the entire time I was writing this.

So without further dudes, let’s do this thing!
