Is Seattle obsessed with the 'glory days' of the 1990s?

Pearl Jam is coming to Safeco Field this summer. Ichiro is back with the Mariners. Sea-Tac Airport plays a message from Sir Mix-A-Lot. Is it fair to say that Seattle can't get over the 90s? We look at a Seattle Met article that asks, "Why can't Seattle quit the '90s?" Who are the city's cultural icons of today?

Bill Radke asks Seattle DJ Marco Collins and grunge photographer Karen Mason Blair. Also restaurateur Tom Douglas joins us to weigh in on his position as an icon of the 1990s.
