Agreed. I was thinking more about defining the way people looked, acted, etc. during the 1990's, so I guess I was thinking more from a pop culture standpoint. Probably it did heavily influence people in some places, but not that I noticed in the mainstream USA. Wish it had, I woulda liked the 1990's a lot better...
