Was there a more arrogant decade the 1990s?

The 1990s was a decade relatively recent in the mind of most adults, but to people of my generation it is childhood zone (although I did live a month in the 80s).

What is the 1990s zeitgeist that comes immediately to my mind?

When I try to think of 90s popular culture, I immediately see red, i.e., Manchester United.
I also see Oasis. What do they have in common? Well, it’s in the attitudes they promoted — epitomised in Eric Cantona and Liam Gallagher — an aggressive self-promotion, pride and ultimately… arrogance. 

Perhaps arrogance was what the world saw more of in the 1990s than in any other decade?
