Vulture’s Millennial 100

When Vulture posted a slideshow of 100 pop culture things that make us Millennials, at first we were like, “COOL!”

Then, we realized we would have to click ONE HUNDRED TIMES to see each nostalgic reference and immediately aborted mission.

“So long, potentially funny work-break,” we said as we reluctantly switched our fickle attention to another tab. “I really wanted to look at that.”

Either Vulture bugged our office or tapped into our brains because what followed next was nothing short of a miracle: they posted another version of the same story, this time in list format (we Millennials love lists!) and suddenly, we could handle the task of reading their article.

Vulture gets it because everyone who compiled the list are part of the Millennial sandwich, too. They’ve got everything on there, from the baby sounds on Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody?” (#67 on the list), to Rent (#55), to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as themselves coming in at #4.

They even get us so much that #89 is Reader’s Choice because Vulture just knew we would have an opinion to share.

Check out the list and their reasoning behind it here (you can handle it!) and if you’re feeling brave or just had a Red Bull, click through the full slideshow here.

After you check it out, don’t forget to tell us your opinion in the comments. That’s all part of being a—yep, you guessed it!—no, not you who guessed frog—say it with me now—a Millennial.

    I totally just clicked through all 100 slides… and I’ve got to say it was 5 minutes well spent. Thanks for the tip.

  • Here we go, Millenials! Very nostalgic.

    That’s so unfair. Now all I want to do is listen to “All I Want For Christmas Is You”…
