Flashback Friday — 1996 Edition

 

How's it going mack daddies? The DeLorean was down for repairs last week, but we've got the butterfly doors fixed, have calibrated the schematics, and are ready to smash into 1996. Before we begin, we must warn you... there are some things in history that make you feel nostalgic and glee-filled, but there are some things that scar our minds and we wish we could forget. For example, Shaq's horrendous acting attempt in Kazaam and that absurd earworm "Macarena" that infiltrated our speakers, rattled our hips, and lodged itself into our craniums for the remaining decade. There are some good things that happened in 1996 though, like the legendary broadway musical Rent, Tupac's album All Eyez On Me, and that tubular movie Trainspotting accompanied by tunes from Underworld

Alright folks, let's blast back to the hot tunes of 1996. Shaq, are you ready?
