Subject: 2000s backlash in the '10s?

Written By: Guest on 05/22/06 at 1:10 am

With how cheesy and incredibly ridiculous this decade has turned out I am left wondering if there will be a major backlash against the trends and fashions of this decade in the next? Throughout the 1990s there was a significant '80s backlash in which anything associated with the '80s was considered ultimately uncool. Part of the popularity of grunge and alt rock in the '90s was its direct antithesis to all the bright, cheesy styles of the '80s, which it was a main reaction against. I wonder if beginning in the early '10s the '00s and anything associated with it will be looked down upon. By 2013 will glam rap be as hated as hair metal was in '93? Will there be a backlash against Bush II conservatism as their was in the early '90s against Reagan/Bush I conservatism? With how much of a joke the '00s have been I will be greatly delighted if in the '10s there is a total rebellion against the styles of this decade. By 2016 we may hear this in casual conversation:

"Dude, you still watch the O.C.!? Uggh! That's so '00s!"

Oh no, not another old 50 Cent video! Man, the '00s totally sucked!"

Probably.

Especially 2006, so far it looks like probably the worst '00s year. Too much emo.

The '10s will be like the '90s in that it will be driven by a backlash against a decade of excess. And oh boy, the '10s will be a backlash against everything even vaguely '00s.

Would you say 2006 is the peak of emo?

Maybe not, it might peak more in the late '00s. It is getting close to its peak though.

Once 2010 hits, people will realize how much of a "decade" 2000-2009 is.

I'd say in terms of cheesiness, the '00s ranks:

Music: 9/10
Fashion: 4/10
Slang: 7/10
State of the World: 10/10
TV/Movies: 8/10
Attitude: 7/10

I think 2006-2007 might be the peak of emo, BTW. In 2007-2008, something new and more '10sy will start coming in up from the underground.

Yeah, so many people don't think 2000-2009 is really a "decade", it's annoying. But it's the only decade where stuff like The Simple Life and Dashboard Confessional can flourish.

Paris Hilton is very, very '00s.

2006 does seriously suck though, I'm beginning to feel removed from the music scene, it justs gets worse and worse. Even stuff like Daniel Powter, it's crap, I can't stand that song anymore. I like some songs like SOS, but the number of songs I like has seen a big decrease from 2004-2005.

'06 is very different. I'd say the "early '00s era" is 2001-2005; the late '00s era will probably be 2006-2010.

By the time the '10s hit, most people will probably see it as a distinct decade. The 21st century is just so young yet, and since it only consists of the '00s, people just refer to the current era as 21st century.

I'm sure people will find a way to cash in on the new decade.  I wonder if this decade will be retrospectively called "The Two Thousands".

I think that the mid-'00s is probably about spring 2003 to spring 2006, with the preppie/boho/emo/Sudoku/txt messaging and iPod crazes finishing up about now. The early '00s is like late '01 to winter '03 or so, and the late '00s will probably be this summer on.

It's possible, I kind of don't like that name, but it seems like the most probable name at this point.

Would you say the peak of the mid-'00s (and the '00s in general) is the fall of 2004?

Yeah, I think about my 9th grade year was the peak of the '00s, though the peak started in fall '03 when I was in 8th grade and it's probably sort of finishing up now.

I think the absolute peak ended when "We Belong Together" hit the charts.

Peak '00s began in the fall of 2003 and we're probably towards the end of the peak now.

I'm going to stay neutral on the subject of there being a 00's backlash in the 10's.  I'm not too fond of predicting the future.  This topic is a perfect example.  People, when predicting the future, tend to predict it being the things that they want, not what may actually happen.  Since so many people here absolutely hate the 00's with all their soul, it only makes sense that people here predict an enormous backlash.  That is, after all, what they want, so that is why they predict it.  Since they hate the 00's, it only makes sense that they predict a future where everyone else hates them too.

Another example of this is people predicting the 2010's to be better than the 00's, which I see here very often.  People hate the current decade, so they naturally predict that the next decade will be better, meaning that it will be closer to what they personally prefer.  For all we know, the 2010's could be horrible!  We don't know and trying to predict is useless.  Whether we admit it or not, our personal bias has a great deal of influence in how we predict the future, even if on a subconscious level.

i dont see a 2000s backlash because
bland fashion(is more long-lived, i still wear clothes from the early-mid 2000s and other people also)
reality tv is still big
celebutants(kim kardashian,snookie)
2000s tv shows are still popular(the office,dexter,gossip girl,csi,spongebob)
social media rise in 2006
2000s acts still had some popularity

The 00s backlash already happened. It was just that the backlash happened when the decade was going on.

Has the backlash anything to do with the recession?
