Set in 1995, Captain Marvel was an homage to all things 1990s featuring cameos from a Blockbuster store to the "old school" green and red "Rock the Vote" signs. Along the Easter eggs came a delightful soundtrack with some of the biggest hits from the 90s.
WARNING: Big Captain Marvel spoilers up ahead. If you have yet to watch, proceed with caution.
From "Whatta Man" playing towards the beginning of the film after "Vers" (Brie Larson) crash lands through the roof of a Blockbuster store to "Waterfalls" when Danvers and Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) are driving to the PEGASUS facility, Captain Marvel was a delectable dedication to the era.
