The ‘70's was also the decade when disco music came into popularity, for example the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever. The decade was also when Britain elected its first female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, in 1979.

 In 1981 MTV was launched in the US and as such music videos changed the music scene. One of the most iconic individuals of the ‘80's was Michael Jackson and according to uk.businessinsider his album Thriller is the number one best-selling album of all time with 32 million certified units.

In 1990 Nelson Mandela was released from prison after 27 years, in 1993 he was awarded a Nobel Prize for Peace and elected as President of South Africa in 1994. In 1990 East and West Germany reunited and in 1991 the Soviet Union fell, bringing an end to the cold war.

The ‘90s are a very popular decade in current culture; it’s very common to see posts online saying something similar to “only ‘90's kids remember this”. Often these posts will be filled with nostalgia about VHS tapes, Pokémon cards, ‘90's video games and of course, pogs. An example of one of these posts is EMGN’s “39 Awesome Things Only 90's Kids Will Remember”.

The ‘90's also saw a rise in the popularity of musical groups. The spice girls, N’Sync, Destiny’s Child and Backstreet Boys were incredibly popular and many of their songs are still enjoyed by many today.
