Subject: Remembering 2000

Written By: mach!ne_he@d on 09/24/15 at 3:16 pm

It's hard for me to believe it, but 2000 is already 15 years ago. Though much of that year still seems like yesterday to me, I have also been having some pretty intense nostalgia lately for my middle school days. In light of this, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the more memorable things from a very memorable year.

The "Dot-Com" Bowl

http://static.nfl.com/static/content/public/pg-photo/2013/01/23/0ap2000000130349/8-super-bowl-xxxiv-st-louis-rams-23-tennessee-titans-16_pg_600.jpg http://www.oocities.org/alyce/sp1.gif

The year started off with a bang, as the 1999 NFL season closed out with one of the greatest Super Bowls of all-time. The St. Louis Rams defeated the Tennessee Titans 23-16, but the Titans came just one yard short of tying the game on the last play and sending it into overtime. The game is also remembered today as the "Dot-Com" bowl because, coming in January 2000 at the crest of the Dot-Com Boom, nearly all of the commercials that aired during the game were for websites, many of which (including the infamous Pets.com) would be out of business by the end of the year.

Pokemon Reaches it's Zenith

You could make an argument for 1999, but I really believe that 2000 was the "Year of Pokemon". For anyone that can remember, Pokemon was literally everywhere in '00. The Pokemon anime was drawing in huge ratings, Pokemon: The Movie 2000 was in theaters that summer, and the Trading Card Game was sweeping schoolyards across the world. Mainly though, Pokemon in 2000 revolved around the video games. Just in the U.S. alone that year you had the much anticipated Pokemon Stadium for the Nintendo 64, Pokemon:TCG for the Game Boy Color, Pokemon Puzzle League for the N64, and, of course, Pokemon Gold and Silver for the GBC.

Speaking of Video Games...

2000 was, simply put, an amazing year to be a gamer. Perhaps 1998, 2001, or even 2004 might've had more blockbusters, but 2000 could easily match up to any of those when it comes to overall quality of titles. You had the underratedly great Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask; the best game in the Tony Hawk series, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2; the best game in the Spyro series, Spyro: Year of the Dragon; the greatest wrestling game of all-time, WWF No Mercy; and my favorite game in the entire Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy IX. And all that without even mentioned the launch of the PlayStation 2 that October, which is still to this day the most anticipated console launch in gaming history.

Thank you VERY much machine held, for taking me down memory lane. I turned 5 years old in October of that year. I entered peak childhood that year, and boy oh boy was I was sooo spoiled. I discovered Cartoon Network, saw Emperors New Groove, Dinosaur, and X-MEN in theaters. I starting playing the gameboy color and discovered the SEGA dreamcast. Pokemon peaked in 1999 and in 2000 it was at an ALL TIME HIGH! My favorite second favorite for fox kids cause of digimon and Power Rangers Light speed Rescue. I watched my St. Louis Rams take on the Titans in Superbowl 34 at my uncle's house and this was my fav Superbowl ever until 2008 Superbowl between Giants and Patriots. The year I played my N64 the most, because of Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2, Bomberman Hero, Glover 64, Kirby, Megaman 64, Mario Party 2 and 3, Legend of Zelda, Fighter Destiny 2,Smash Bros, Toy Story 2, and of course WWF NO Mercy the best wrestling game EVER!!!!! Also the launch of my favorite game console ever the PS2. This was the first full year I watched WWF and WCW on a consistent basis, and man was I blessed to be watching at the time. 2000 is my personal favorite year in WWE/WWF history besides 2002.

Damn I was 1 to 2 years short from experiencing this year with clear memory. :(

I was only 4 years old then, but seems like an awesome year to be a kid in though. Pretty good year for video games and movies. I can remember how the stores looked at the time including how the Walmart in my town used to look, how the furniture in my house and many other folks in my families' houses used to look before it was replaced in 2001, that small CRT-TV in the corner of my house, and 2000 was the last full year we had that before we replaced it in Spring 2001, sitting in the car as a 4 year old I'd look outside and see the models of cars back then how it was a mixture of late 80's and 90's cars, trucks, and SUV's everywhere, that was actually a hobby of mine then, and compared to the models of cars you see now really old school/dated. Also in my town I remember how there were a lot of trees in certain areas before it was chomped down and turned into other outdoor malls, and I have this vague memory of going to the mall and this big candy shop with my cousins. Matter of fact, I remember how back in 2000 it was the last year I went to the old stores on the other side of town, and certain roads used to be build a certain way, then as soon as 2001 hit all of that changed. I have no memory of the pop culture that occurred in 2000 though. Around 2001 is when I started having conscious of the pop culture geared towards kids.

2000 is probably my favorite "modern" year musically, as it was when I was at my absolute peak of caring about current music. I used to race home from school every day to watch TRL and see what the top 10 songs would be, spend hours at music stores like Sam Goody looking through albums, and I even actually once joined the Linkin Park fan club (not something I'm proud of :-Toonami

Well, of course you couldn't talk about 2000 without mentioning Toonami, which was in the midst of arguably it's biggest year. In the fall of  2000, the heavily hyped Android saga of Dragon Ball Z finally premiered, Toonami started airing full length movies like Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz and DBZ: Tree of Might, and the block had it's strongest lineup ever with Sailor Moon, DBZ, Reboot, Gundam Wing, Tenchi, and Batman: TAS. Fall 2000 was also when The Intruder storyline aired, leading to the death of Tom 1.0, and the birth of Tom 2.0.

I remember all of these things pretty well.  I think I was a couple of years too old for Pokemon when it peaked, though some teens my age were into it.  Definitely loved the video games and movies of that year.  It was the last year that the N64 was in its prime.  It was also a pretty big year on the PC as well, with Quake 3 Arena really pushing PC gaming forward and a new generation of games coming out that used its engine.

Looking back, the music was the best thing about 2000.  Eminem's the Marshall Mathers LP was not only the best album of the year 2000 but one of the best hip-hop albums of all time.

Don't be selfish bro, no one on here is thinking that way. Everybody can praise any year they want to about any type of pop culture, it doesn't have to just be by a kid's viewpoint, but even the pop culture towards teens and adults at the time as well. Look I was still in my early childhood in 2000 too, even though I can remember things from that year I didn't really experience it either.

Well, I guess that can make sense, but I think it just feels special for anybody who was born in the mid 80s to early 90s.

I'm in the same boat as Mqg.

However I vividly remember moving into my new house in Spring of 2000, taking out weeds in the backyard when we just moved and me and my family putting our hand prints into a piece of some new cement that was being put into part of the backyard.

I also remember Summer of 2000 like it was yesterday, similar to Summer of 1999, but I remember more such as going to Summer camp for the first time and going on various trips like to Make Believe Land, Six Flags Great Adventure, The Circus, & Funtown USA. I also remember going to Orlando, Florida for my first time this year. We drove down there that year and I remember when we stopped at a Motel and we stayed up to watch Forest Gump on tv. Then once we got there we went to Disney World and I remember getting on a few kiddy rides there and my siblings getting on Space Mountain. Then we went to Universal Studios and I remember going on Men in Black the Ride when it first opened, Nickelodeon Studios, Twister, Jaws, Back to the Future, & King Kong (that scared the living crap at out of me). So Summer of 2000 is a summer I get very nostalgic over.

However most of my memories from 2000 are pretty vague though, but I would say since Late 2000 my memories have been pretty vivid, such as Thanksgiving of 2000, seeing Rugrats in Paris in theaters, Christmas of 2000, the first Christmas I could recall, and getting a Tickle Me Elmo, a T-Rex, Pokemon cards (since I was a big fan of the show) and a Gameboy Color  8)

However, the first year of my life that I could remember vividly from start to finish was probably 2001. From New Years Eve that year, my 5th birthday in March and getting a PS1, to going to a family reunion during Spring Break of 2001, graduating from Pre School, going to Myrtle Beach in Summer of 2001, going back to summer camp this year, learning to ride a bike, going to Coney Island with my family, going to Upstate New York to visit family, watching Kids WB, One Saturday Morning, Fox Kids, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Toon Disney, & Disney Channel during their glory days, watching a movie every Saturday Night during the Wonderful World of Disney Block, my first day of Kindergarten and all the friends I made that day, 9/11 a few days later  :\'(, the post 9/11 patriotism, Christmas of 2001 and getting tons of toys and video games that year, seeing Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius in theaters, etc.

So yeah, 2000 was a great year, but 2001 was awesome as well! So was 1999, 1999-2001 was in general a great time for early/peak childhood  ;)

ONE of the only things from the year 2000 I DO get nostalgic for is Who Let the Dogs Out! Probably my favorite song from my early childhood. Back in Summer 2000 by dad would play it on his radio or from his Windows 98 computer, and I would be dancing to that music when I was 4.

I wanted to comment on these because I know exactly how you all feel. I've always had the exact same feelings about 1990-91. There's just this sort of "magical" feeling about the memories you have in that 2-4 year old range. You're old enough to finally start forming coherent memories, but still really too young to understand what's going on around you, resulting in everything from that time period having this really "hazy" quality to it. I can remember certain things from around 1990, like the big hairstyles, my parents listening to stuff like Genesis and Roxette on the radio, watching cartoon shows like Adventures of the Gummi Bears, and going to stores like K-Mart, but it's all really vague and hazy. I think those types of memories actually cause you to become even more interested in your toddler years, as I've been really fascinated by the pop culture of the early '90s since I was in high school.


ONE of the only things from the year 2000 I DO get nostalgic for is Who Let the Dogs Out! Probably my favorite song from my early childhood. Back in Summer 2000 by dad would play it on his radio or from his Windows 98 computer, and I would be dancing to that music when I was 4.


Yeah, I'm not the least bit surprised that you can remember Who Let the Dogs Out, because that song was literally everywhere in 2000. You couldn't go two seconds without hearing it on the radio or seeing the video on MTV. Heck, even Nickelodeon used to show it all time.

I can remember this year very well. Like Machine He@d said, it still feels like yesterday that I was enjoying myself with my family and friends doing a variety of activities. Despite the awful events that occurred, it was still excellent. All of the kids channels were still in their prime and the world was non-paranoid. Here's many things from that year.

Fall 2000 was also when The Intruder storyline aired, leading to the death of Tom 1.0, and the birth of Tom 2.0.
This. Toonami was everywhere in 2000. There was the weekday and the Midnight block on everyday. I watched everything you listed and it was awesome.  I can even recall TOM 1 when he was the host and then by the fall, he was replaced with TOM 2.

2000 :') A great introduction to the 2000s. For some reason, it doesn't shock me that no one mentioned the Thong Song by Sisqo. It was one of the themes of 2000. I even remember someone I seen in middle school quoting the first verse of the song during I think recess. Someone else I knew was quoting the hook to OutKast's So Fresh, So Clean. The funny thing is, I had a teacher I was antagonistic to due to my development named Miss Jackson, and I seriously thought they referencing her. I first played Capcom Vs SNK 2000 my sister's old partner had that sums up majority of the year for me. I owned Spyro: Year of The Dragon at the time, but me and my brother could never finish it due to a missing memory card and not really caring since we became addicted to obtaining the N64.

We got internet access at home some time in the first half of 2000 and I was amazed by it.

2000 was the first full year we had our new car, a Skoda Felicia - with no airbags or power steering!

In September 2000, the month of my 9th birthday, I began middle school (which was for ages 8-12 in my area of the UK. Most middle schools have since changed to junior schools for ages 7-11).

The introduction of Trunks in the Fall of 2000 probably marked the absolute apex of Toonami, in my opinion. At that point, it had been nearly an entire year since the last episode of the Freeza Saga had aired (in late 1999), and we had all been anxiously awaiting the debut of the Android saga. Those promos hyping up Trunks started airing, I believe, in June of 2000, and the wait seemed endless. When the first episode of the Android saga finally did air that September, I think it garnered the highest ratings in the history of Cartoon Network up to that point.

When me and my brother first seen Trunks's intro, we instantly thought he was evil, especially when we caught the glimpse of him standing in front the flames and black screen haha That was definitely a interesting and tense year for Toonami. I can even go as far as saying we felt the hype from people we knew back then.

Here's more memories from 2000...

Wrestling

For any kid growing up in 2000, wrestling was appointment television on Monday nights. By January of that year, the Monday Night Wars were drawing to a close, with WCW now getting destroyed by WWF in the ratings, but that didn't make things any less interesting.

http://semcatch1.chez.com/ppvwwe2000/backlash2000logo.jpg http://i.ytimg.com/vi/DVIUbDprj2c/hqdefault.jpg

At WrestleMania 2000, The Rock was screwed out of the WWF title by the McMahon-Helsmley regime in a four way main event featuring Triple H, Mick Foley, and the Big Show. The next month at Backlash, Stone Cold Steve Austin made a temporary comeback from his neck injury to help The Rock finally defeat Triple H and wrest the championship away from corporate hands. In May, at Judgement Day, The Rock unsuccessfully defended the title against Triple H in an Iron Man Match, which saw The Undertaker return and debut his infamous "biker" gimmick.

http://i.imgur.com/5QtX3us.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/3e/SS_00.jpg

Later that year, in October, Stone Cold finally returned for good, and was looking to find out who had run him over the previous November at Survivor Series. Ultimately Rikishi shocked the world by revealing that he had run over Austin, and that he "did it for The Rock". The truth soon came out, however, that Triple H had hired Rikishi to run over Austin, resulting in Stone Cold getting his revenge in a brutal no-disqualification match against Triple H exactly one year later at Survivor Series 2000.

While the WWF was dominating the ratings at this time (with RAW routinely pulling in 6.0 or above), WCW was sputtering thanks to the "worked-shoot" storyline style of Vince Russo. 2000 was full of franchise killing moments for WCW, including D-list actor David Arquette winning the WCW championship, Goldberg walking out in the middle of a match against Kevin Nash, and Russo giving an infamous "shoot" promo on Hulk Hogan after having Jeff Jarret lay down to give Hogan the title at Bash at the Beach 2000.

The Election

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ucdj8qHqqdQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuRC4CR-OPQ

Of course, 2000 also featured one of the most memorable presidential elections in American history. On a personal note, 2000 was also the first presidential election that I was actually old enough to follow, so it's also stood out to me because of that.

Despite a crowded field of challengers seeking to replace outgoing President Bill Clinton, the polls showed well in advance that it would be Vice President Al Gore vs. Texas Governor George W. Bush. Gore cruised to the Democratic nomination over Bill Bradley, while Bush faced a slight challenge in the Republican  primaries from Arizona Senator John McCain, but after a strong performance by McCain in the New Hampshire primary, Bush wouldn't lose another contest.

The general election was pretty nasty. Because of the good economy and stable world stage, the campaign mostly focused on social issues and the character of the candidates. Bush had a large lead during the Summer, but the polls tightened as election day neared. Gore pulled ahead in October, but sub par debate performances hurt him. In the end, the election was one of the closest ever, with Gore winning the popular vote by just over 54,000 votes out of over 100,000,000 cast. Ultimately, the election would not be decided for over a month due to a recount of votes in the contested state of Florida. The Supreme Court ruled in December to end the recount, thus handing the election to Bush.

Now that 2000 is 16 years ago, that is the year I'm nostalgic about and throwing back. I'm hoping 2016 will be the new 2000. It was one of the best years of my life. I had just turned 21 and was always going to bars and clubs. There was a lot of good music that year, especially in R&B and hip-hop. My favorite songs include "Let's Get Married" by Jagged Edge, and "The Light" by Common. My favorite movies were Scary Movie, X-Men, Meet the Parents, Road Trip, and Me, Myself, and Irene. I also bought a Nintendo 64 that year (kind of late), but those games take me back to that year, including Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, 007 Goldeneye, and LOZ: Ocarina of Time.

Monday Night Football? I love watching all kinds of football games in college or NFL year in and year out. I'm probably the most true football fan on this entire website. I always learn something new about the game, offseasons, drafts, or recruiting each year. In fact, Monday Night Football had some really great games this past season, almost all were decided by a touchdown or less!

I STILL remember BEGGING my parents to let me stay up to watch any of the teams play each other. Most specially my STL RAMS back then since they were the defending champs that year! :D  I do wish I could have been a little older to stay up the entire night to watch the full games. ::)

A lot of those Sunday or Monday Night Football games will go on past 11:30pm E.T. or 12:00am E.T., especially if it goes to OT. That Colts vs. Panthers game this past season was on Monday Night and went to OT, and I think the game had ended right before 1:00am E.T. hit.

He goes by a 16 year parallel. Basically in his opinion, the 16th year is typically a mirror.

For instance 2015 was the new 1999. Both years were peak years for teen pop (peak for Britney Spears/NSYNC/BSB & peak for Taylor Swift/5SOS/Justin Bieber), advance gaming consoles (PS1/N64 & PS4/Xbox One), definitive movies (Matrix/Fight Club/Star Wars Episode I & Renevant/Creed/Star Wars Episode VII), the presidential elections of 2000 & 2016 and how both are ending off from Centrist Democratic Presidents (Clinton & Obama) and how the past year and this one could both have Republican candidates win the race (In 2000 Bush won narrowly, in 2016 Trump could potentially win narrowly especially against Clinton) etc.

There not perfect representations, but relatively similar

Also this makes sense with school years as well. Similar as to how 1996-1997 is generally seen as the tail end of Core 90's Culture is how 2012-2013 is the tail end of Electropop (Late 00's/Early 10's) Culture, or how 96'-97' is the tail end of Gen X culture and 12'-13' is the tail end of Gen Y culture.

Just a few examples, not saying the theory is 100% correct, but there are some pretty accurate parallels when you look into it.

The Rams had an amazing season in 2000. Statistically, the "Greatest Show on Turf" offense was actually even more dominant in 2000 than it had been during the Rams 1999 championship season. The problem with the team was the defense. It was pretty atrocious in '00, and that really messed up the Rams chances at winning back-to-back titles.

It's crying shame that the Rams are moved back to LA this upcoming 2016 season later this year. I don't know what I'd do if I was in that position. Sadly, this upcoming season will be the last season our Atlanta Falcons are in the Georgia Dome including the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl games being held in there, so it will be bittersweet when the dome gets taken down and we move to the Mercedes Benz Dome in 2017, but at least it's still in Atlanta though. I always say that when you're a true fan of a team, always stick with it no matter what, otherwise, you're a bandwagon or not a true, fake fan, but I know it's going to be difficult for football fans who grew up in Missouri or St. Louis their whole lives to go without an NFL team for the first time ever, or in over 20+ years. It's a selfish ass move by the owner. There AREN'T even that many football fans up in LA, at least compared to St. Louis which is definitely a huge football town. LA is just a money town, that's all. Throughout the Rams ENTIRE history their ONLY Super Bowl winning season came from St. Louis, NOT LA. That town didn't do sheesh for them. However, I know many people in the West Coast who are happy about it though. People have mixed opinions on the decision. St. Louis or LA Rams, I'm still routing hard for my homeboys Alec Ogletree and Todd Gurley down there!

Very true. Even though I'm old enough to have a few vague memories of watching the original L.A. Rams back in the early '90s, I was still pretty young when they moved to St. Louis in 1995 so I've definitely come to see them exclusively as the "St. Louis Rams" over the last 20 years. Heck, even saying "L.A. Rams" after all of these years sounds pretty weird. I think we all knew that eventually an NFL team would wind up in LA again someday, but it is sad that it had to be a team like the Rams with such a loyal fanbase in St. Louis that stuck with the team through some really terrible years. It reminds me alot of what happened in the NBA with the Seattle Supersonics moving to OKC back in 2008.

As far as the whole "bandwagon fan" thing, I agree. I've been watching Atlanta Falcons games since 1991, so you can believe me that I've seen a whole lot of bad football over the years, but I've always stuck with the team no matter what. And, in the process, I have gotten to see alot of great moments as well, like the 1998 Super Bowl season, the Michael Vick era, making it to the NFC title game in 2012, etc., just not a championship. Sadly, I'm a UGA fan also, and since they haven't claimed a national title since 1980, I've never seen them win a title in my lifetime. Come to think of it, the ONLY team I root for that has won a title in my lifetime was the Braves back in '95.

Yeah, being a fan of Atlanta-area sports teams is a rough business. :(

We're talking about throughout our history year in and year out! Machine_Head and I grew up in Georgia and has had to deal with the misery of always coming up so short of a college football national title, Super Bowl ring, or NBA title. He explained it all, the only difference it that since I was born in 1996 I haven't seen ONE championship my whole life, while he got to witness the 1995 Braves. Here in Georgia all we have is the 1980 Georgia Bulldogs season and the 1995 Atlanta Braves, and that's it. The Atlanta Falcons blew it in 1998 & 2012, and our Atlanta Hawks blew it last season. Also, throughout Mark Richt's career at UGA we should have won the national championship in 2002, 2007, and 2012, but there were always one or two regular losses that screwed us up. If only the college football playoff was already around 15 years ago the outcome would have been different.

You, ocarinafan, got to witness 2 Super Bowl championships with the NY Giants in 2007 and 2011, both which were against Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the Patriots. Those were magical runs thanks to y'all top tier defense. A 10-6 Giants team, in their white jerseys, on road in everybody else's own stadium, and y'all won the Super Bowl that year, unbelievable, and in 2011 as a 9-7 team, in the Wild-Card game you stomped my ATL Falcons 24-2. Went on the road the rest of the time and beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl again. Oh, and how about your NY Yankees? Oh wait, you're a Mets fan that's right.

Here in Georgia all we have is the 1980 Georgia Bulldogs season and the 1995 Atlanta Braves, and that's it. The Atlanta Falcons blew it in 1998 & 2012, and our Atlanta Hawks blew it last season.

To be fair, the Yankees aren't even doing good. They haven't even been to the World Series since 2009, which is a big deal to their fans, since they won the most pennants AND world championships in any MLB franchise. As for the Giants, I didn't really care about their Super Bowl wins. This is coming from a person that wasn't into sports until 2012, so I haven't gave a crap about what the Giants and Jets are doing.

My earliest memories of sports teams is the 2002-03 season. My dad took me to plenty of UGA, Falcons, and Braves games throughout my childhood. I went to a UGA basketball game during the 2001-02 season but I didn't know what was going on then. However, I'd say I wasn't fully comprehensive on what was going on in the game until the 2008 season and onwards, like being aware of the divisions, knowing how playoffs work, drafts, all positions, etc. Since then I've always learned something new every year. From 2002-2007 I only knew popular/big names from my home teams, or what a basic first down, 3 point shooter, or touchdown was, but I couldn't pinpoint every name on a roster or other teams yet. Like in 2003 I knew who Michael Vick or Shaq were, and I knew what a touchdown was, but I wasn't an expert on other types of plays, referees, yard lines, files, off season talk, etc. Since 2008 I've been more of an expert on everything football or basketball related. Everyone knows who LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Cam Newton, or Tom Brady are. But if I could ask you in person who Kyle Korver, Dwight Howard, Vic Beasley, Reggie Jackson, Matt Jones, Jimmy Graham, or Alec Ogletree are. Would you get those names from the top of your head?

I would simply refer to Reggie Jackson as one of the Yankee's legends. If anybody was alive during 1977 and were a fan of MLB back then, they could remember watching him hit three home runs in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series. It would've been even cooler if they went to the old Yankee Stadium at the time.

Yeah, New York has certainly had it's fair share of sports heartbreaks, particularly when it comes to the Knicks (who haven't won an NBA title in, like, 50 years), but the Giants tend to balance things out. After all, they've won more Super Bowls in the last nine years than the Falcons have simply made it to in the last 49. :o

From a personal standpoint, I think the 2002 Georgia team was the biggest local sports heartbreak out of all the ones you mentioned. Nobody here thought the Falcons could beat the Denver Broncos in the '98 Super Bowl, and nobody really thought UGA had a chance against Alabama in the '12 SEC title game, but that '02 UGA team should've won the national championship that year. I consider them to be the best UGA team I've ever seen. They only lost one game all season (a nail-biter to the Gators of course) and I believe they could've beaten either Miami or Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl had they gotten the chance. Like you said, if the College Football Playoff had been around back in the early '00s, things could've been alot different.

I still remember seeing that team crush Arkansas in the 2002 SEC title game and feeling elated, but also very disappointed at the same time knowing that they would be left out of the national title game because they already had that one loss while Miami and OSU where both still undefeated. It was a very bittersweet day. :(

These were the 4 main losses that cost UGA national titles under Mark Richt  >:(

2002 Florida Gators, 2007 South Carolina OR 2007 Tennessee, and 2012 Alabama.

In 2002 that lost to an 8-5 Florida team left us out of the BCS National Championship Game because Miami and Ohio State remained undefeated. In 2007, it was one of those lucky years where a 2 loss conference champion could have gotten in the national championship. However, ALL Georgia had to do was win against a 6-6 South Carolina team OR a lucky-ass 10-4 Tennessee team, and they would have won the SEC East that year as a 1 loss team, most likely beat LSU in the SEC title game, and beat Ohio State in the national title game. In 2012, all we had to do is spike the ball at the 5 yard line, have a few seconds to discuss what play we should run, and punch our ticket in Miami to play Notre Dame, and history says we would have definitely beaten Notre Dame that year, since in 1980 we played Notre Dame and won it that year. I'm so glad the BCS era of college football is over and it's college football playoff now. Seriously f**k that BCS system. It was always unlucky for Georgia any time they were contenders, but for LSU, Alabama, or Florida they were lucky to get in as a 1 or 2 loss team. Heck, the 2011 Alabama team did NOT win the SEC West and still got in the BCS national title game in 2011  >:( and yet the 2002 team who won the SEC title as a 13-1 team didn't get any help by the polls! It's straight up BS!!!!

Which one was the worst for you. I'd have to go with the 2012 loss to Alabama.

2002 was still pretty wacky and upbeat last I checked. Same for most of 2003. I just assume things were getting darker due to it just being the trend at the time. Kind of makes me wonder how things would've been if Bush never got re-elected.

That was the youth culture, the adults were the ones that started the darker trend!

Funny way to explain it, but I suppose it makes sense. Looking at a lot of kid-teen fashion, music, games, commercials, cartoons, sitcoms etc they all had that upbeat/colorful vibe to them. The adult culture on the other hand was always different from the kid-teen culture in past few decades. More "serious" and "mature" where the kid-teen things can be seen as "juvenile" and "silly".

I disagree. Don't forget that I was already 18-20 in the early 00's (technically, an adult) and the main demographic at the time. People my age back then were all about loud genres like Nu Metal, Hip Hop and Pop Punk. It's Mr. SlowpokeMc2001's era of the Millennials that helped usher in the real 00's in 2003 and 2004 such as faux-Emo or other things like Crunk and 50 Cent. When you say older crowd, do you mean people in their 30's-40's because them, being middle aged, really just focus on their jobs and families and I didn't know anyone who was that old and could be into, I dunno, Hawthorne Heights to usher in the real 00's or whatever.

Then by the Summer of 2002, things were happy and bubbly again.

In my opinion, all of 2000, 2001 and 2002 felt bubbly and happy to me. :D The music on the radio, video games, fashion and the movies in theaters were all very light hearted, goofy, fun and Xtreme! during this time period. In 2003, things got all depressive and lame but it wasn't until 2004 that it became too much. I lost interest in all of that stuff.

I disagree. Don't forget that I was already 18-20 in the early 00's (technically, an adult) and the main demographic at the time. People my age back then were all about loud genres like Nu Metal, Hip Hop and Pop Punk. It's Mr. SlowpokeMc2001's era of the Millennials that helped usher in the real 00's in 2003 and 2004 such as faux-Emo or other things like Crunk and 50 Cent. When you say older crowd, do you mean people in their 30's-40's because them, being middle aged, really just focus on their jobs and families and I didn't know anyone who was that old and could be into, I dunno, Hawthorne Heights to usher in the real 00's or whatever.

Yeah, like I said above, it's your little "cohort" that ushered in the real 2000's in 2003-2004. ;)





Yes I meant people over 30. And when I said usher in the 00s, I meant politically and lifestyle wise, NOT musically!

Yup, that's EXACTLY WAS I TALKING ABOUT EARLIER, your statement proved it too me AGAIN! ::) 
That's because you were a teen/ young adult during that time, and the people your age then were still trying to hang on to that Y2K vibe.


A COMPLETELY different story from the older crowd dealing with 9/11, post 9/11 paranoia/patriotism, fear in society etc. Politically rather than culturally they had moved forward while the younger crowd didn't.

I don't think there was a "Y2K vibe" for the older generation; not in the sense that it was for people my age. Pop Culture of the time is defined by teens/young adults and whatever their interests may be. You said the adults ushered in the "true 00's" but the culture of that era was totally targeted towards teens/young adults and I didn't know any middle aged adults into what was popular at the time. Concerning your last statement, I don't think it was a completely different story for older people, either. Just ask someone who was over 30 at the time how their lives specifically changed after 9/11 and you'll hear many different answers. Some might tell you "It changed everything!!! I still hide in my box" and others will say "I carried on with my life. It didn't have any affect on me or my thoughts." Concerning how people lived their lives, their workplaces and their families? It wasn't like we had World War III in America afterwards but some might of felt like this as we've always lived in a hypersensitive country. Truth is, I don't remember people being any more or less scared of terrorists (I'm sure they were but I just didn't experience too much that kind of blindfolded hysteria first hand. Thank god...) as they already were before the incident (I've told the story many times about this time I went on a road trip and my friend's mother telling me and my bud not to visit any landmarks because of a fear of a possible terrorist attack. Yes, this was before 9/11. So, I guess I did experience some blindfolded hysteria??). Speaking about politics, the majority of people in general aren't interested or don't know jacksh!t about politics so I doubt they could even move forward in the first place. One thing I did notice was you could get special 10% off discounts during the time of 9/11 so it's neat if you wanna capitalize on the "death of fellow Americans."

I think everyone knows that the 2000s were frightening politically if you were an adult. I'm not saying every 2000s kid was happy during the decade, but the kids were more happy due to the kid culture at the time.

In the  early 2000s kid-teen culture seemed pretty cool. Well first elementary school kids no nothing about political situations so it's to see how they wouldn't be frighten. Teens may understand, but whether they actually cared is another story. It's usually the adults that take part in all political situations. So it's easy to see adult culture in the 2000s as dark or scary. But kid for kids it was still pretty carefree (although I assumed it was always like this) and looking at teen culture especially during the first half of the decade it was pretty upbeat and carefree for the most part. I always thought adult culture in decades always had less in common with kid culture and teen culture. So when looking at any time period I tend to think that whatever culture is happening for the kids or teens most likely isn't the same for adults.

It's hard to believe that it was still a pre-9/11 world my first 4 weeks of Kindergarten. Feels so ancient or prehistoric to me lol. I vaguely remember how people were reacting to 9/11, like my mom picking my sister up from preschool earlier, and Fall 2001 was the last time my dad had his Geo Prism and the last time my family had Windows 98 & dial-up, but I don't remember how bad the specific event was. Too young to understand or comprehend it obviously.

For me it was barely a week into my Kindergarten school year when the horrific attack happened. I was also living in NY at the time so I vividly remember the pessimism and patriotism in the air after it occurred.

All I remember from the few days after 9/11 was when someone tried to arson a local mosque that doubled as a private school. My aunt told me it was a reaction to the WTC falling down, so I thought it was the US who tried to bomb the mosque. So yeah, my understanding of 9/11 was pretty juvenile.

I also remember my parents and uncle/aunts watching replays of the airplane crash at the Pentagon non-stop. I was at my cousin's house and we wanted them to get off the TV so we could play Ecco The Dolphin on our cousins' Genesis. It was raining outside so we couldn't really play at the playground. My dad yelled at me to go play in the basement, so I think we played pretend Power Rangers down there.

You lived in NYC so you probably have scarier memories than I did. For me life didn't really change pre and post-9/11. I don't even think I found about 9/11 the day it happened, and no one really bothered telling me. I just remember those two events listed above.

If you were a kid during 9/11, then I guess you wouldn't really know that much. I think since I was a baby, all I did was play with toys and watch Sesame Street. The f*ck if I really care. 2001 was simply primitive to me, even if I could remember it.

Yeah geograophy is an important factor to take into account. Someone born in 93' where I live would most definitely remember 9/11 (and I'd argue through the lens of an adult), but its totally plausible for a 93er in California to either remember through the lens of a child, or just barely remembering it. So thanks for this perspective, it was very interesting hearing your experience.

In many ways, my childhood was still relatively peaceful and joyful. I don't think I truly lost my innocence in all honesty until I got to middle school. Its like mqg has said, I never learned about 9/11 in school like most people born after 1997/8 did, It's something I've always known about and living in the NY area, despite not remembering everything and comprehending terrorism, I do have a physical connection to it. Heck we got cable in our household because of that horrific event because the TV signals in our house died out when the North Tower collasped (it had a huge attena, which had many of the local broadcasts stations signaled to). So in a very horrific and surreal way to think about, if the event never happened I would've most likely never gotten fully into cable channels like Nick or CN, and probably watching Saturday Morning Cartoons for several more years until we were able to afford it, and or I would just simply outgrow kiddy program.

That's the rollercoast of life in a nutshell. I just hope we never experience another national disaster like that ever again...

Slightly OT, but I believe the "dated-ness" of the early 00s is due to the rapid advances in technology, filming equipment, etc. during the decade.

I was watching Nostalgia Critic's review of the movie Osmosis Jones, and noticed how it looked (and sounded) rather like a "blurry" mid-90s movie, like Ace Ventura. But then, in his review for The Dark Knight, the movie looked like it was made yesterday.

Also, around 2000-2003, most cartoons/anime were still being done on 35mm, but around 2004, they switched to Xeroxing for a "cleaner" look. Oddly, cell filming tends to make films look like they're ANCIENT compared to digital films - even if they were made at the exact same time!

It's hard to believe that it was still a pre-9/11 world my first 4 weeks of Kindergarten. Feels so ancient or prehistoric to me lol. I vaguely remember how people were reacting to 9/11, like my mom picking my sister up from preschool earlier, and Fall 2001 was the last time my dad had his Geo Prism and the last time my family had Windows 98 & dial-up, but I don't remember how bad the specific event was. Too young to understand or comprehend it obviously.

Oh I DEFINITELY remember how bad it was! I was just too young to fully understand it then!

This is 2000 in a nutshell. It was one big party! It was a grand adventure complete with costumes! :D


The year 2000 was like the 1991 of the early 2000s. It was no longer 1999 anymore, but it still felt like more of a continuation to the previous year than 2001 was. Shows like Beverly Hills 90210 were cancelled, while '00s and early '10s shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation were being released.

The very early '00s (1999-2001) were better than the other periods, in my opinion, but one thing got on my nerves in the last months of the year 2000: Big Mouth Billy Bass. Give me the Rubik Cube or the sound activated Green Machine Frog Band any day over Big Mouth Billy Bass.  I never understood how Billy Bass was such a hit with children of that time. It was very annoying. To each it's own, I guess. Not everything is for everybody.  ::)

I don't get how emo is "early 2000s" to anyone. I mean, it was popular in 2004 which is early 2000s to some, but it was also there in 2007/2008. Seems to me 2004-2008 deserves the designation of late 2000s rather than early 2000s. ;D

How is the Black Veil Brides early 00's, either!? They formed in 2006 and their debut came out in 2010 for god sakes!!! I hear someone refer to some Boys Like Girls song from 2009 as "early 2000's" as well. What the f*ck!

What was popular in 2004 was already a completely different world than 2000-2003. Only real Emo like Jimmy Eat World, The Movielife, The Get Up Kids, Jets to Brazil, Northstar, Dashboard Confessional, Taking Back Sunday and real Post-Hardcore like Glassjaw, Finch, Thursday, The Used and At The Drive-In (all their early pre-04 stuff) are early 00's. Those bands are so far removed from "ohio iz 4 luvrz~ </3" and what Emo means to the general public these days. I agree! 2004-2008 = late 00's!! ;D

How could the black haired MySpace emo look define the entire 2000s time when that look did not appear until 2005?

The Get Up Kids fans were wearing black hair dye in 1999, but MySpace was not created until 2003.


;D ;D ;D ;D

Not a very accurate statement (Thursday and Locust fans were dying their hair black in 1998 and 1999, though. Get Up Kids were more for the preppy frosted tip crowd like Saves the Day had. Sorry, I just had to ;D) but that's why I ask. I want to know what you think about their music.

I'm a big fan. They're an Emo band (but, like most people and bands, they hate the term and try to disassociate from it), here's some songs from their 1997-2002 albums:

(faux)Emo Pop sucks. Emo Pop Punk, on the other hand, kicks ass. ;) Lifetime, Movielife and Get Up Kids are rad bands. Fall Out Boy was only good for two EP's (they were never Emo, though. Pure Pop Punk with Emo tints; similar to New Found Glory). What's wrong with Stumpy, though? Is he not good enough for you!? Paramore also has nothing to do with Emo at all. Them and Panic at the Disco are so far from what Emo actually is that it's sad.

Hey it's called emo pop for a reason. It doesn't have to be "real emo", and honestly I don't think anyone cares for what "real emo" is, the term has been co-opted by the 2000s emo.  8) And I don't care no more, those songs are fun and original in their own right, they didn't regurgitate 90s stuff and I think that's a good thing. Fall Out Boy's 2005 album poops all over their 2003 one. End of duscussion.  8)

I care! >:( You know there's a whole Emo Revival happening right now? It's a bunch of people into Midwestern mid 90's Emo trying to bring it back to that era. I don't like it (the revival. I like the mid 90's stuff) much and some of them seem to think that Emo went all Hawthrone Heights in 2000 (which isn't true but, on the other hand, a lot of people agree the age of real Emo ended in 2003). Original? I guess. They kind of started that whole Fueled By Ramen scene and sound in 2003 along with blink-182 (with the untitled record). The only good 2003 Fall Out Boy is Evening Out With Your Girlfriend (which poops all over both Cork Tree and Take This To Your Grave. That mini-album was recorded in 2002 and that's when it should of come out). Take This To Your Grave does kinda suck but Cork Tree is not at all better. End of discussion. 8)

You know, to be honest, I've never been huge on SR-71. The first album was ok and the second album was a weird Nu Metal/Post-Grunge album (so, of course, I didn't like it). I haven't heard anything past that aside from 1985 (which is kinda annoying). That music video is pretty much my life in the early 00's. You know, being chased by girls constantly.

Everything is accurate here except for the shoes and dress shirt. They should be Vans or Converse shoes and I don't remember many people wearing shirts like that back then. I'm glad they included dickies and 3/4 shorts. Everyone either wore Hurley, Dickies or Hilfiger back then.

I will just have to take da poke's word) so it's not very early 00's at all, but these shirts look more like it. Hybrid Theory was huge from 2000-2002 along with Untouchables, Infest and Hot Dog Chocolate Starfish Waters. Bad memories... :-\\ (;D ;D ;D)

This is like... the 1993 to 2006 hip hop look? So yeah, it existed from 2000-2003 and is pretty accurate.

Now this is becoming personal... The Guy Fieri/Smash Mouth/Insane Clown Posse hair is perfect but where'd the wristbands, shoes and dog tags come from?? That looks more like hip hop fashion. Nobody I knew would be caught in shoes like that; we wore vans or converse. Dog tags aren't a distinct fashion, either. We wore Puka Shell or short chain necklaces more often. The shorts are fine but they're not distinct dickies shorts.

This is 2000-2002 to a T but I never drank much Sunny D (it is for kids and I am an adult so I drink adult drinks like Coke and Pepsi). All the girls (and Nu Metal guys) loved watching TRL, though.


What about the Bowling For Soup's version of 1985? I liked that one ;D (and thought it was the original)


Yeah, it's an improvement but I prefer songs like Thirteen, Girl All The Bad Guys Want and Emily. At least they didn't go Nu Metal.

You mean the spirit of 1998? The spirit of 1998 didn't end until 2003 when we were walking towards 2004. If Runescape was only in beta mode until 2004 then it does not represent the spirit of 1998.

I don't understand what it is but for some reason 1998-2002/3 music always has somewhat of a unique sound. I guess this is what some mean by the late '90s-early '00s being its own separate era. I don't know. Music from 2000-2002/3 for example sounds similar to music from 1998-1999 (and vice versa), but not with any other era.

This song is from 2000-2001 (recorded/released in 2000 and had other versions/albums released in 2001). One of my favorite House songs from the period.

I don't know. Must from 2000-2002/3 for example sounds similar to music from 1998-1999 (and vice versa), but with any other era.

This song is from 2000-2001 (recorded/released in 2000 and had other versions/albums released in 2001). One of my favorite House songs from the period.


Yeah, it was an extremely unique period. There was so much music to choose from back then; it was crazy! And most of it is really good, too. Lot's of good Rock and Electronic stuff from that era. I agree with that. Songs (or just things in general from the era) from 1998-1999 and 2000-2002/2003 all sound like they're a part of one cohesive era. Great time to be into music.

There are too many good ones from that era to choose from. Post-Hardcore was at it's best back then.
