In Remembrance of the Angst Ridden Adolescents of the 90's

The Sneaker Pimp's "6 Underground" popped up on my radio the other day and immediately transported me back to jr. high. When wearing Dr. Martins and pale face make up meant you were a bad ass (it still does) and many pubescent suburban girls believed dark moody music, mostly sung by Shirley Manson, was the soundtrack to their lives. At least that's what I felt. So lace up your combat boots, put on that black velvet choker and enjoy reveling in your teenage melancholy.


  1. Velvet choker...That takes me back!

  2. My friend randomly started talking about chokers today and we agreed the black velvet was the way to go and it only got better if it had a jewel or cameo hanging off it. Ahh... the 90s.

  3. Haha. So true. Every word.

    ...and I totally had the same velvet choker, docs and Garbage CD.
