The Class of 1990

Nobody realized it at the time, but 1990 marked the end of a long musical era. The rock world was still ruled by the likes of Motley Crue and Poison, while the biggest rappers were Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer. Nobody knew that grunge and gangsta rap were about to hit and completely change the game. It was the year of the New Kids On The Block, Paula Abdul and Warrant's "Cherry Pie." This would all seem hopelessly dated in just a few short months – but at the time, people were living like the 1980s would never end. Click through to catch up on ten acts who ruled the charts in 1990 and find out what they're up to these days.
