Top 10 Cartoon Theme Songs From The 90's

The 90's were a golden age of cartoons. These cartoons were entertaining, as they had great action and really great characters.

The 90's cartoons were aimed not just at kids that were easily amused by flashing light and bright colors, but to adults alike. They brought the super heroes to another level, by showing the excitement that they had in the comics onto the screen and getting bigger audiences.

Here are, in my opinion, the 10 best cartoon theme songs from the 1990s.

1. Tiny Toon Adventures

2. The Animaniacs

3. Sonic Underground

4. Tale Spin

5. Darkwing Duck

6. Rocko’s Modern Life

7. Doug

8. Spiderman

9. Goof Troop

10. DuckTales

Legendary Rapper Guru Dies After Battle With Cancer

GuruLegendary rapper Guru has died of cancer-related complications at the age of 43. The rapper, whose real name is Keith Alam, had suffered a heart attack in February then lapsed into a coma.

Guru's friend and producer Solar mourned his loss in the statement, saying "The world has lost one of the best MCs and Hip-Hop icons of all time -- my loyal best friend, partner, and brother, Guru! Guru has been battling cancer for well over a year and has lost his battle! This is a matter that Guru wanted private until he could beat it but tragically this did not happen. The cancer took him."

Solar released a letter he said Guru had written while in the hospital. "I, Guru, am writing this letter to my fans, friends and loved ones around the world. I have had a long battle with cancer and have succumbed to the disease. I have suffered with this illness for over a year."

Guru appreciated Solar for being "with me by my side on my many hospital stays, operations, doctors visits and stayed with me at my home and cared for me when I could not care for myself."

Guru referred to DJ Premier, who with Guru made up the rap duo Gang Starr as "my ex-DJ". "I do not wish my ex-DJ to have anything to do with my name likeness, events tributes etc. connected in anyway to my situation including any use of my name or circumstance for any reason and I have instructed my lawyers to enforce this. I had nothing to do with him in life for over 7 years and want nothing to do with him in death." he said.

The rapper said about his series of "Jazzmatazz" albums, where he combined hip-hop and jazz. "I am very proud of what GangStarr has meant to the music world and fans. I equally am proud of my Jazzmatazz series and as the father of Hip-Hop/Jazz."
