If you were born in the 80s, then you (hopefully) hit puberty in the 90s. This means that you were probably doing a lot of angst-ridden soul searching, making many sincere proclamations of your feelings to anyone who would listen, and (to the horror of your mother) listening to Nirvana all the time. Loudly.

We love a generational coming-of-age story more than anything, and the earnestness of finding oneself during that most self-aware of eras, the 90s, has us giggling nostalgically over some very cringe-worthy moments. So we’ve compiled a list of our favourite 90s “coming-of-age movie” moments and the songs that take us back to all the awkward crushes, angry poetry and indie drama that defined many a confused, combat boot-wearing 90s youth.
