They don't put an age rating on music videos like they do on movies, so during the glory days of MTV and music videos in general, this meant that we got to see some things that, when looking back on it, we probably shouldn't have been allowed to.
Whether it's disturbing imagery, weird themes, or sometimes so much bare skin we're amazed the video wasn't sponsored by Playboy, these 12 videos were definitely a little too mature for us to be watching as kids.

You will often hear that the games today are so much better than those of previous generations and in some respects, that is true. The graphics are better, the sound is also better and there is nothing from the 90s that can compare to the speed of today’s gaming systems and PCs. No, you won’t find games you can play in VR with the right headset, however, that’s about as far as it goes if you are looking for some good old-fashioned fun. Let’s look at some of the reasons why 90s games are so much
Even for those of us that remember the 90s, it is hard to recall what we did before the days of mobile devices and constant access to the internet. In 1984, less than 10% of households had a computer or access to the internet. Today, there are about 900,000 domains registered per week.
