    I know I'm a month late, but the 90s was my era as a young kid and teen. And Nickelodeon was a huge part of it at the time. Still look at it very fondly. So this was a gift. Nickelodeon was truly in tune with us at the time. And knew how to integrate the culture of hip hop and r&b into its universe.

    Let's talk about SpongeBob and how they had Ween to do the loop de loop and pull song, also ocean man played during credits for the movie, or how they had Pantera do the hibernation episode soundtrack, (yes dimebag derrel Shredded for SpongeBob) or how they got the dude from the Cramps Lux Interior to do that "sun underwater" song
    David Bowie doing the Atlantis song, Gene Simmons of kiss doing the 20000 patties under the sea hah the list goes on
    Just saying they brought alot of cool music to kid ears including mine growing up

    Definitely been a Nickelodeon Kid since "You Can't Do That On Television" and seeing the growth from the "Wild & Crazy Kids" & "Hey Dude" era to "All That", "Kenan and Kel" & "RoundHouse" you could see how the culture evolved and the kids along with it. It's definitely one of those, "You had to be there" periods

    Yes, yes, yes! 🙌 I was 10 or 11 when All That premiered and that whole time for Nickelodeon was fun for me and other kids from that era.

    The main reason why this was special was because these were artists that were all over the radio and even MTV at the time. Putting them on a show that was for us (the kids) gave it legitimacy. We’re too young to understand that broadly at such a young age but kids have a sense of realness.

    Thanks so much for making this video!

    Excellent video! This is so niche and I’m glad I came up in the 90s and can remember this time so fondly. Nickelodeon was definitely for the culture back then and at the right time too. ❤

    Just thought of this after watching my spotify wrapped, and remembered how you talked about how the Nick shows influenced your music tastes. Every one of my top listened to artists for the year have at least 1 video on your channel here, where I watched your stuff then just wemt back and listened to an album of thier stuff. Just wanted to say a general end of the year "Thanks" to you and this channel.

    Ross Perot was definutley not obscure in the 90s in the US, especially the early 90s, even for kids…. He was the only 3rd party presidential candidate to ever get a significant percentage of the vote… and Dana Carvey's famous SNL impression of him is kinda what Keenan and Kel was riffing on.

    Hold up, wasn’t Kevin also the Producer who’d barge in to the Cast’s backstage room and say ‘Five Minutes! Five Minutes!’ Before he’d get comedically pummeled in some bizarre fashion?

    EDIT: Nevermind! Glad he brought it up later in the vid! XD

    My dad was a big hippie dude he introduced me to amazing music but he never liked hip hop. I was born in 1990 and I remember watching all that as a kid and loving the musical guests it was my first introduction to hip hop. Good stuff.
