Are you angsty, very angsty, or extremely angsty?
Was 1994 actually the best year for music ever? Probably, yeah.

Twelve rounds of the heated debates you and your best friends had back in the day.
Because your dream vacation really should reflect how cool you are. Duh.
Twenty years ago, MTV held the most epic and iconic VMAs of all time — which included appearances by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Madonna, Janet Jackson, R.E.M., and Neil Young. So step aside, 2000 VMAs. Just step aside.
