Australia’s ’90s Music Revival

It seems as one group leaves, another jumps on the Aussie touring bandwagon.

With the fast approaching tour dates for iconic '90s pop groups, New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, Hanson, Wheatus, S Club, Big Brovaz and Eiffel 65 (I'm blue da ba de dab a die), it is now completely undeniable that 2012 will be remembered throughout history as none other than the year of '90s music revival.

The Venga Bus came and went, just as Aqua has been and gone. But, it seems as one group leaves, another jumps on the Aussie touring bandwagon. You can't sit dwelling in your hip modern residence forever. Embrace the time where it was cool to not be cool.

S Club Australia

Forget our technological advances, political debacles and ferocious weather. Australia has seen/is awaiting some of the world's greatest manufactured bands to take us back to the decade that actually welcomed the fashion of flair jeans and a large percentage of the population questioned who that bastard was that 'let the dogs out'.  It was common to say mega to the start of every saying, shout NOT at the end of every sentence and no matter how terrible things would seem, the world would always be 'all good'.

There's no use fighting the urge to whip out your old Pepsi Charts CDs and embrace the shitness that once was the music industry. Let us respect those that were kicking about before 1D had left the crib and accept the return of the '90s music revolution.
