I'm using "child of the 90s" in a completely different sense than you are using "90s kid." It's inherently impossible to be a child of a decade you weren't born in. You may have grown up in the 90s and been a 90s kid, but I'd still classify you as a child of the 80s because, hey, you were born in 1985. As someone who was born in 1990, I actually WAS a child of the 90s, and yes, I was "in the moment" enough to also be a 90s kids. I mean, I remember most of what happened after 1993 or 1994, and a huge number of my musically formative experiences took place while listening to the bands on this list. In contrast, I hated just about everything that was on the radio in the early 2000s and have no nostalgic feelings for most of it. Hence this playlist not being "The 2000s: Where Are They Now?"
Your wording was weird. Also in your original post, I misread and thought you stated that you were born at the end of the 90's 1993 and 1994 are in the beginning to middle of the 90's. Sorry for the confusion. I don't understand the difference between "child of" or "kid". The terms are synonymous to me. Thirdly, I feel you putting up 13 or so tracks didn't really indicate a lot of the bands that were successful in the 90's. Where's Hootie and the Blowfish, Our Lady Peace, Sugar Ray, etc... maybe you just don't listen to those bands. I guess Darius Rucker is really popular now which is why you left off Hootie? Who knows? This isn't meant to be offensive, but the 90's went far beyond the bands you mentioned, and I was just curious to get your thoughts.
