Subject: If you were gonna throw a '00s party

Written By: Yazz on 03/16/10 at 10:34 am

What kind of music would you play? What would you dress up as, rappers and emo kids? LOL. I do think that the two "cliches" of the 00s decade will be the ghetto style and the emo style, and I guess also the whole "American Idol" thing.

I wonder if anyone has thrown a 00s party yet, it is 2010 now so I guess you COULD hypothetically.

I would play "In the Club" from 2003.

But the thing is the 00's just doesn't have the same ring as a 50's, 60's, 70's,  or 80's party. I can't even imagine someone doing a 90's party. Why? Because the 90's is just sooooo..... modern. What do you dress like? The spice girls? Wear flannel shirts? I hate to admit it, but anything after the 80's is just too modern to have a party. The 90's has a name, but it just doesn't have the same nostalgic ring like the 80's.

I can't imagine having an 00's party, because not only does it not have the same ring as past decades, it doesn't even have an official name!

I agree it's too modern right now, along with the 90's. But people would've proabably said the same thing about the 80's in the year 2000 because it takes time for a decade to get that sense of nostalgia. You can see the 80's trends really coming back and the 90's are slowly becoming more and more nostalgic and that's because of the fact we are moving farther away from the decade.

I think techonology has advanced a lot since the 1990's, so in that case the 90's aren't modern. But if you look at music and fashion of the early 90's it seems very different from the present but the late 90's, obviously, still has many things in common with the present if you're looking at that. But since we have just gone through this recession I could see a lot of people wanting to look back at the 90's because the economy was so great throughout the decade.

I think the whole '90s is pretty dated now, I mean people say the late '90s but cmon 2010 and even '99 seem far apart to me. Anything before 2006 is at least somewhat dated now.

Well, technology's advanced a lot, but right now as of this time it's sort of stagnant. There are advances happening, yes, but most of them won't be accessible for awhile. Earlier years had inventions that made the advances more recognizable- having the new stuff available in your own home made it more tangible. We've got so much already.

For the early '00s it would be like pop punk attire and spiky hair or a throwback basketball jersey for hip-hop, play some Simple Plan or Nelly.

For core mid '00s I'd wear like a oversized urban hoodie, shaggier longer hair, and play crunk like yeah!, stand up, get low.

For late '00s it would be tighter brighter clothes and emoish hair style and you would play autotune electro urban kinda stuff like Lollipop, Disturbia or Poker Face or if god forbid you like emo some of that lmao.

Kind of disagree.  The late 90's was all about Crash TV and baggy pants.  That all went away after 2003, though the late 90's was still modern.  I think it like Hair Metal in the 90's, it wasn't old but it wasn't the now.

The 90s definitely AREN'T modern. Its 2010.
But if I were to throw an 00s party, It'd be like this
Early 00s-baggier jeans, embarrassing "punk rock" music( I hated this time period)
mid 00s-Flip flops, dark wash straight leg jeans, hoodies, big sunglasses
late 00s-skinny jeans, bright tees, straightened hair, smartphones, lady gaga, electro

Forget the fashion, I don't think there was any.
If anything, we should all come dressed as our favorite movie characters.
Sure, we may get an overload of Spider-men, Harry Potters and Jack Sparrows, but some guys might come dressed as Maximus, Shrek, Jason Bourne, or Mr. Incredible(To name a few).
For entertainment, we could always have some mock "American Idol" auditions(a nice step up from karaoke, I think), and the old 'playing murder' standby could be given a little "CSI" twist! :D Hey, you never know.

These are not good times in our national history.  I doubt there will ever be a wave of nostalgia for the late '00s-early '10s, the same as you have never seen much '30s nostalgia.  Plus, its way too early for an '00s nostalgia party period, unless you cut it off at maybe 2005.  Everything from 2006 onward has been pretty much the same....emo haircuts, increasingly electro-sounding music, the iPhone, facebook, etc.  Top 40 radio now is still mostly 2009 hits for crying out loud.  Wait 10 years and then start talking about an '00s party.

A visor worn backwards and upside down.  Both of my sons did that when they were 16-18.  I guess I remember that because I hated it!!  I guess they thought it was cool to dress like a rapper or something  (they were nice kids but aggrevated me with the way they dressed).  Also, those yellow bristbands were popular.  I guess rap was popular then.

I agree with you there. I would set the cutoff point in mid-2005, because late 2005 was when a lot of things you mentioned came into style, also to add MySpace, the predecessor to Facebook, and YouTube. I don't think there would be nostalgia for the early 00's either, since that was when 9/11 happened plus the subsequent period of fear, paranoia, anxiety, and the Iraq War. The only part of the 00's I feel any nostalgia for is the middle part (2004 and 2005), but if you were to play "Yeah" by Usher at a party, it might take me back, but it still doesn't feel retro or dated. I also feel nostalgic for the year 2000, but that is culturally more associated with the late 90's. I also might feel nostalgic for 2008 and even 2009 further down the road.

NEVER! Auto-tune, lousy TV shows, and the bad economy, I don't think so! I feel "Millenium memories" will be a better name to describe the decade in retro/nostalgic terms. Our great-grandparents never called the first decade of the 20th century the "00s", they kept on referring to it as "turn of the century" or even a more fancy name like "Edwardian era".

Playing Guitar Hero and Wii Sports might be fun things to do at a 00's party, unless they continue to make games like those in the 10's.

I don't feel the resentment toward the early '00s you speak of.  9/11 and Iraq aside, I remember it being a pretty optimistic time.  The recession of 2001 was pretty much just a slowdown and not a full-fledged recession as is the one we are currently experiencing.  This country was a lot more unified and in general there was a more positive feel to the culture whereas in the late '00s we were divided and the mood was virtually nothing but doom and gloom.  I would agree with your cutoff point of mid 2005, specifically labor day weekend 2005.  That was when Katrina hit and is in my opinion when the entire zeitgeist in this country shifted almost overnight.  The "good ole' days" were over.

I'm 17 and in high school and I wear the rubber yellow band.  Theres still quite a few kids at my school that wear those.
On my left wrist I wear a plastic Swatch watch (which was popular before I was born) with the buckle on the top side of the wrist.  On my right wirst I wear the yellow rubber wristband.  My girlfriend used to wear a rubber wristband but she doesn't do it any more.

I agree with bchris02 that the early 00's were better than the late 00's.
Music was better (punk rock instead of emo and synth pop crap like GaGa) We had no GaGa, no Miley, no Jonas!!! We had Avril Lavigne when she was hot, Green Day, Limp Bizkit, on the lighter side of music Shania Twain, Britney (her best songs were in 01-04) and many more.
Besides I don't care about 9/11, it's an American thing. So Americans want the whole world to feel bad about the awesome early 2000's because of that 9/11 thing?! But they don't give a *beep* about the terrorist attacks in London in 2005, and the current terrorist attacks in Russia. Total hypocrisy! Yes, i felt bad about the victims but that's all! USA is not the whole world, it's just a part of it!
Nobody has the right to look down on me for liking 2001! It was a great year for music, pop culture, fashion and my personal life. For me 2002 was far worse, especially the fall. However, 2003 and 2004 and even the first half of 2005 were good. Both in terms of pop culture and personal life. And even if we didn't have Facebook, YouTube and many other time-wasting sites, at least music sounded good and MTV and VH-1 still showed some music videos. I am the kind of person that gets over bad years so I won't remember 2006-2010 thank you very much! I like 2000-first half of 2005, except the second half of 2002 for personal reasons. So it's your own opinion, batfan2005, it's not universal!!! The early 2000's were *beep* awesome and cooler than the dull and boring late 00's/2010. I don't want to see any more of Lady GaGa, that creepy kids Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez and those guys The Jonas brothers. At least Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan in the early 2000's were better than them!

(Note: These were the Dutch 00s, pop culture here is not exactly the same as American or English pop culture...)

Early 00s:

Music--> Lounge (St. Germain!), clubtrance.
Clothes--> For the girls: Pale, low-waisted, flared jeans with pastel coloured muffin tops (with studs and little beads). Golden details.

Mid 00s:

Music--> Urban, urban and... urban (especially the Neptunes-sound). Also an option: Some Franz Ferdinand or White Stripes like stuff.
Clothes--> For the girls: An eclectic mix. A jacket with a shocking pink short skirt + Uggs (or pointed shoes), and such combinations. Sweet colors are good. Partly second hand = also good.

Late 00s:

Music--> Emo, electropop, 'Sneakerz' like house music, jumpstyle. Search on YouTube for 'Jeckyl and Hyde', or 'Dj Porny'. For a couple of months, he was big here in The Netherlands.
Clothes--> For the girls: A dark skinny jeans + babydoll like top, or the emo look.

(Sorry, I don't have much to say about boys fashion...)

While I think 9/11 was a horrible tragedy, I don't think it should make people hate the decade.  People still look back on the 70s with fondness even though they had Vietnam and the oil shocks.  The '50s had Korea and McCarthyism.  The 90s had several terrorist attacks including the OKC bombing but they don't define the decade.  If anything tarnishes the 2000s decade it should be the financial collapse of 2008 and everything that followed.  Most people don't realize it but we are in an era now that is strikingly similar to the Great Depression.  The real unemployment rate counting the discouraged and underemployed (that the government ignores with the intent of making the numbers look better) is about 20%, only 5% off of where it was at the lowest point in the Depression.  One day, the 2008-2015 period will likely be remembered much like the 1930s were in retrospect and the 2000-2007 period will be looked back on like the Roaring Twenties.

Rap music blasting with Eminem and "In Da Club." Also, Britney Spears music as well. Probably "Toxic" or "Oops" will be played mostly. Baggy, black shirts with lot's of bling. Emo look as well. Skinny Jeans will probably be the main form of clothing and fashion of the 00s party. Flip Phones, Windows 2000 and Windows XP computers with MSN. I don't think Social Media like Facebook and YouTube will really be remembered in the 00s but more in the 10s. Also, reality shows on screens at the 00s party.

Also, people who are saying that there will be no nostalgia for the 00s, That's very unlikely. In the 80s people didn't think there would be a party or nostalgia, it just happened. 90s is already starting to have parties, But we are still stuck in the 80s retro phase, We will probably move on to the 90s in the mid 10s. The 80s cultural nostalgia has really lasted way too long imo.

I don't know about everything you say, YouTube was already huge by 2008 and I see a lot of videos uploaded from 2006 and 2007. But I do agree though about the 80s. I mean, I still think some slack can be cut for the late 80s but the idea of people still worshipping 1982 is getting to the stage of beating a dead horse. It's 30 years ago...give 1992 a turn.

Since its a "2000's" party in 2012 most of the goers will be hipsters and pop-culture geeks anyway.

There would be a designated "Emo Corner," and the walls would be covered with Bush era bumper stickers as well as memes from 4chan's Golden Era.

The music, would be nothing but the timeless classics: Some E40, some D12, some Nelly, some Youngbloodz, "Dance Dance" by Fallout Boy, and a special Rick Rolling session.

Super Smash Brothers melee and the original Guitar Hero come to mind for gaming.

Wait a while and the 00s will get dated. Especially 2004 and back. 2000-02 is already dated more or less as it is.

Its not about whether their dated or not, its whether or not the Average Joe can take the idea of an 00's party seriously.

I'm not sure.  The 2000's are still "brand new" in 2012. They haven't aged yet that much  imo. Maybe in the mid 00's there were fads that people would say " oh that's so 2005" or something, but it's still too early. I really don't feel a difference from the late 00s- now. Maybe pop music from the early 00s, but that music was "left overs" from the late 90s imo. It didn't really define the 00s. But there are some things that are "old" from 2000-2003.

The early-mid 00s are definitely already dated but too recent. There won't be 00s nostalgia till the late 10s at the very earliest and they won't be retro until the 2020s.

Like I said above, just give it some more time. Like you said, the early 2000s especially stuff like video games. 2000-02 is a big difference vs 2010-12 in that category. Especially the original The Sims, which isn't really 90s-like. While I agree with you that 2008 and 2009 are still very similar to today, basically ALL of the stuff I put up is from 2007 at the latest.

Personally, I'm already quite nostalgic for 2000-02. All of which are at least 10 years ago.

IMO, Britney Spears looked okay in the late 90s, but when she went bald... 8-P

Britney was probably the hottest girl alive from 1999-2002.

Hip Hop and R&B. No Late 2000s acknowledgement and possibly try to make Early 2000s fashion as the dress code.
