Despite what Public Enemy may have said, 1989 wasn't just "another summer". Though history is rarely that neat, the final summer of the '80s saw the slow fade of many of the decade's icons, as well as the launch of some of the '90s' most enduring pop-culture institutions.
In terms of cultural legacy, the summer of '89 might not be able to compete with its predecessor of two decades prior – Woodstock and Bryan Adams will do that – but 25 years later, we're still feeling its impact.
Whether you remember it or not, relive the summer of acid wash, hair metal and Do the Right Thing below.

Seinfeld is celebrating its 25th anniversary – not that there's anything wrong with that.
On July 5, 1989, Jerry, George and the rest of the gang sat down at the diner for the first time, changing sitcoms forever. To mark this comedic milestone, we've taken the Seinfeld cast through a spin in our Photoshop time machine, back to the show's first years. (You might call us the original double dippers.)
See Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer posing with their younger selves, below.

In this current Golden Age of Television, many of our biggest shows follow what one might call the HBO Rule of Drama: Use each season's penultimate episode for the fireworks, and spend the finale picking up the pieces.
Fortunately, there are still shows out there practicing the ancient art of the season finale cliffhanger – most notably Showtime's Shameless, which wrapped up its fourth season Sunday night by bringing back Justin Chatwin's Steve Wilton, a former boyfriend to Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum), who fans thought murdered at the end of the previous season.
In honor of the throwback nature of the drama's surprising twist – seriously, it was straight out of the Dallas playbook – let's go back in time and run through some of the most shocking finales in TV history. (We're talking season finales here, not series; that's a whole other listicle.) Warning: Major spoilers for all shows below.

Seinfeld's coming back – but the details are more yada yada than concrete.
Jerry Seinfeld confirmed a reunion of his eponymous '90s sitcom is happening – at least, sort of.
The comedian, whose popular – and quotable – show about a quartet of narcissistic New Yorkers wrapped in 1998 after a nine-year run, gave away a few details about the project while appearing on a sports radio talk show Thursday, according to CBS New York.

There was a Seinfeld reunion in New York City Monday.
Two of the show's stars – Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander – were spotted walking outside of Tom’s Restaurant. In case you don't have our encyclopedic knowledge of the long-running '90s show, that's the revered NYC deli on Broadway and West 112th Street that fans of the show know better as Monk's. Many of the most famous scenes from Seinfeld were set inside soundstage replicas of the diner's booths.
