If you grew up in the 90’s as a latchkey kid like myself, you probably learned vital life lessons from either TeenNick, Snick or any other various Nickelodeon programming blocks. Shows like Catdog and Pete and Pete taught us about the importance of friendship, while shows like Hey Arnold! and Rurgats taught us rights from wrongs. Ahh! Real Monsters showed us acceptance of all, and Doug gave us a moral compass that couldn’t steer us wrong. All That was the musical hub of Nickelodeon with a theme song from TLC and performances from everyone who was anyone in the 90’s. And that’s not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to shows.. There’s not a network out there like it’s kind during the time. This post is meant to sprinkle a little nostalgia into your hump-day, and make you remember simpler times when the big question was: who loves orange soda? Kel loves orange soda. Below are songs that have been remixed, remade, and freestyle with the topic of Nickelodeon nostalgia. Enjoy.
To kick it off, we have the original N-n-n-n-n-nii-niick-nick-nick-nickelodeon theme remixed:
“Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society” is the perfect way to start off an ode to the once beloved channel:
This video was probably part of the push that ended with Nickelodeon’s re-formatting of programs to include a block of 90’s era shows. And the mash-ups with the characters is pretty well done:
Guys from a Nickelodeon show freestyling (only reason I’m allowing this on here is because they name drop Minnesota):
This one probably includes the most references, definitely the most visual ones:
Auto-tuned hip-hip song about Timmy Turner and The Fairly Odd Parents:
This one was circulated quite a bit, but I really enjoy thinking of Chris Brown’s face as Spongebob’s:
A freestyle about Nickelodeon, A+ efforts for the use of Slime in this video:
Probably the most creative one I found, not sure why this or any of their videos don’t have more views. Homeless Heroes are a group that receive topics from viewers, than simultaneously (at least for the viewers-sake) rap about it/paint it. Very cool stuff, here was their tribute to Hey Arnold!:
One of the best theme songs for a TV show of all time:
Last but not least, the best theme song for a TV show of all time:
R.I.P. LEFT EYE AND 90’S NICK!
