Fall 2006 to Summer 2008? With being the peak of late 2000's culture I can somewhat agree with that one.

I think it is a mini era, why do you think so, It just seems things was in its own little world separate from the mid 2000s and early 2000s

It is like the mid-2000s but with advanced technology like YouTube, Wikipedia, Gmail and Xbox 360s.

I remember MSN introduced offline messaging around then. So when someone would send you a message, you would get a text on your phone, or you would receive the message once you got back online. Pretty revolutionary stuff lol.

2007-08 school year was also the peak of emo, after that it went into decline. All the cool kids were listening to Indie Rock bands by then anyway.

I remember Hard Rock Hallelujah won Eurovision in 2006, so there was a huge explosion in the popularity of Scandinavian metal during 2006-2007 school year.

Nah. I don't find 2006 to be similar as much as 2007 and 2008. Honestly, it felt really mid 2000s by the time 2006 came around. I might say that mid 2007-mid 2009 were like the late 2000s, as my perspective.

Yeah I agree, 2006 was still mid 2000's for the most part. Maybe Late 2006 could be lumped with the late 00's though. Infact I would say the 2000's overall were broken like this:

2000-September 11 2001: Late 90's Extension

Late 2001-Early 2004: Early 00's

Mid 2004-Mid 2006: Mid 00's

Late 2006-Early 2009: Late 00's

Most of 2009: Early 10's precursor

The last third of 2006 through the winter of 2008/2009 was basically the period that bridged the mid-2000s with the 2010s.  It had certain things that stood on their own, like Timbaland's golden era and the Wii, but mostly it was a setup for the digital age we're in today, combined with a still pretty prominent 2000s atmosphere.  Once YouTube, Wikipedia, and Facebook were commonplace, in addition to the Wii phenomenon, things started to feel a lot more modern to me.

I actually think 2006 was slightly superior because it had Clerks 2 and that's my favorite movie of the mid 2000's.

Despite your feelings of the pop culture, do you think that 2005 and 2006 are of the same era? I don't remember them feeling very different at all.

It's my tastes TBH. In reality 2005 wasn't that much different from the first half of 2006 and even the second half of 2004 pop culturally. All of it was the mid 2000's cultural period.

When it came to the kid culture, and even some mainstream, I found a lot of the movies, video games, and TV channels from 2005 to be superior to 2006.

The good news is 2006 was the best for my personal childhood life, because throughout that summer I did so much. Like going to the Georgia Aquarium the first time (which opened in Fall 2005 so it was still very new at the time), going to Savannah, GA the first time, and a surprise trip Disney World for the whole week including going to all the parks.

I know before you said that 2004 and 2005 are transitional periods for kid culture and 2006 is the true beginning of the modern era so I can understand why you say that. As much as I love the early 00's and dislike the mid 00's, you know what from the mid 00's is superior? Revenge of the Sith. That movie is not as sh!tty and awful as Phantom and Attack. I think 40 Year Old Virgin was kinda funny. It's not as great as people say but it's a decent movie. Clerks 2, on the other hand, is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen and it is the best thing to come out of the mid 2000's aside from the Malcolm in the Middle 2004-2006 episodes. Videos game wise, 2005 and 2006 are tied. Battlefront 2 and Destroy All Humans 2? Those games are totally rad and I love them both equally. Other than this, I was still very nostalgic for the 80's to early 00's in 2005 and 2006 but I still know good things when I see them no matter what era.

2004-2007 = core 2000s (2004 being the classic era and 2007 being the somewhat modern era despite nothing about 2007 being modern anymore)
2008-2009 = late 2000s

It's different for everyone, but I mostly prefer to try and keep the 2000s in 3 simple eras sometimes.

Haha, I guess that's true! I do remember mid-2000's fashion being a lot more plainer and more fitted than the 90's and early 00's fashion, though.

How are the mid 80s to the late 90s emo years?


The first Emo band, Rites of Spring, formed in 1984 and released their first album in 1985. Tons of influential emo bands like Embrace, Jawbreaker, Moss Icon and Dag Nasty formed from 1986-1989. In the early to mid 90's you had bands like Texas is the Reason, Indian Summer and Sunny Day Real Estate. I don't know why I even have to explain the mid 90's because that's when Emo's presence became more noticeable. The first mainstream Emo record was Jawbreaker's Dear You from 1995. After that bands like The Promise Ring, Knapsack Lifetime, Saves the Day, Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday and The Get Up Kids or harder Post-Hardcore bands like Thursday started getting big from 1996-1999. They didn't blow up overnight but Emo videos were being played more and more on MTV2. Then, around 2000-2003, poppier Emo bands like Dashboard Confessional, Saves The Day and Jimmy Eat World or harder-edged Post-Hardcore bands like The Used, Finch and Thursday had some good success. Starting with Fall Out Boy's Take This To Your Grave and blink-182's self-titled up to the slaughtering of real Emo in June of 2004, the weird Myspace Emo thing took over and all of the real Emo bands broke up, changed their style or faded into obscurity.

As I mentioned in many other threads, I think that era was 2005-2008. I didn't think 2006 was that much different from 2005, but 2005 felt completely different from 2004, at least from the summer and onward. I define that era as the era of MySpace and YouTube, emo/scene, snap rap, dance pop, less reality shows and more scripted shows such as The Office, How I Met Your Mother, and Big Bang Theory; the 7th generation of video games (X-box 360, PS3, Wii), and most of all: Bush II's 2nd term and declining popularity. Most of those things listed started in or around 2005.

I see your point. Although, I do think that late 2004-mid 2006 can be seen as the 1st half of the era, while late 2006-mid 2008 can be seen as the 2nd half of the era.

I define that era as the era of MySpace and YouTube, emo/scene, snap rap, dance pop, less reality shows and more scripted shows such as The Office, How I Met Your Mother, and Big Bang Theory; the 7th generation of video games (X-box 360, PS3, Wii), and most of all: Bush II's 2nd term and declining popularity. Most of those things listed started in or around 2005.

2005 was just like late 2004 though ;D . the first half of 2006 was like 2005, but that 2nd half was quite changeful. I don't mean to decadeologize. But I've said it before late 2001-mid 2006 could be seen as one era. I'm not going to sit here and say the entire 2nd term of bush was all the same.

Bush was pretty unpopular by mid-2004 really. Not the whole-country-hating-him unpopular, but it clearly wasn't the early 2000s anymore for his approval ratings.

Also America's international reputation plummeted real hard around then. I heard sad stories about Americans being refused service at local bars and restaurants around here and in Europe around this time.  :(

Basically, 2005 was really like mid-late 2004. Early 2006 was like an extension to late 2005 too.

Early 2005 was together with late 2004, but late 2005 seemed completely disconnected from 2004. One thing I remember about late 2004/early 2005 is it was the peak of Atlanta-based rappers, including Lil' Jon, T.I., and Ludacris. Another good album from that time period was Snoop Dogg's R&G album, and Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B.

I do remember in fall of 2005 when I was listening to "Yeah!" by Usher and one of my co-workers was like "Why are you listening to that? That song is OLD!" It was only over a year old and already seemed dated. I also remember in May-ish of 2005 when a bar was playing a few Fall 2004 rap hits, and it already sounded dated, but good songs that took me back.

I was listening to Usher in 2005 and it did not seem old  :o

2004-2006 in general is when hip hop/R&B was very popular.

2002 right? It was still okay around then. It got bad around 2004-2008. Not so bad in English Canada since you can't really tell Canadian apart from Americans, but it was pretty bad in Quebec/French Canada.

A report from 2007 asking people from different countries in Europe and Asia if they view the US favourable or unfavourably. In the late 90s/early 2000s, most European countries had the US poll favourably at around 60-70%. By the mid-2000s it plumetted to the 30s range. Thankfully with the election of Obama it back to its natural 70s range.

Periods are usually sub-divided into early, middle, and late stages.

1999,2000, and 2001: Part 1 of the early '00s
2002, 2003, and 2004: Second part
2005, 2006, and 2007: Mid '00s
2008, 2009, and 2010: Late '00s

1999 was the quintessential year of the 2000s for pop culture and music. '99 was the first year when '10s shows like Family Guy were launched, Dubbya age movie characters were introduced (I.e. Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity), and '00s pop culture institutions like Pokèmon saw their absolute peak. If you ask me, the events that occurred in the other years of the '00s were unimportant in comparison to those from 1999 and 2011. That's just my perspective on it, you're free to think otherwise.

I disagree with you saying that 1999 was the quintessential year of the 2000s for pop culture. Sure, it was the first cultural 2000s year (IMO), but it still had some 90s vibes. I would say that 2004 and 2005 were the quintessential years for the 2000s for its pop culture.

Exactly. That's why 1999, 2000, and 2001 are the very early 2000s to me.

The new culture from the '90s (Austin Powers, for example) came full circle in 1999, so I think of that year as the starting point of the 2000s.

All of the years that came after '99 and before '11 were far more transitional and very streamlined. 2005 was the start of the third sub-era in the 2000s, but nothing particularly stands out about it, aside from that aforementioned fact.

You gotta be kidding me. 1999 the quintessential year of the 2000's for pop culture and music!? Heck, I believe that early 2010's culture was in full effect by late 2009, but that doesn't make me say 2009-2012 were quintessential 2010's years. That would be around 2013-2015 so far. 1999 was like the peak of late 90's culture IMO.

Same could be said about the Simpsons or Spongebob Squarepants too. No matter how long these franchises go on, the Simpsons will always be associated with the 90's. Spongebob Squarepants will always be associated with the 2000's. Heck, even Buffy the Vampire Slayer which lasted from 1997-2003, it's a late 90's cultural show, because the majority of its peak was in the late 90's on WB from 1997-2001, and it wasn't as popular as before when it finished off its run from 2001-2003 on UPN. Pokemon, is an ongoing franchise, but what will its peak always be? 1998-2000, basically Indigo League, Orange Islands, and the Movie 2000. Even though the Johto era from 2000-2003 was still part of its golden age. The first few seasons of a show or the first half of a show is always the max popularity of the show.

Family Guy is a 2000s show.  That was when it was the most popular and the most relevant.  Despite the fact that its still on, its time was the 2000s.

Power Rangers is still on, but its considered a '90s show and is a huge part of '90s nostalgia because that was its time.

Pokemon was more likely to be peaked during the late 90s and early 2000s. Besides that, I agree with this post. Much like of how Simpsons would be the quintessential 90s show, while Spongebob would be the quintessential 00s show, it would stay the same.

I loved watching TMNT (2003) and Power Rangers Dino Thunder when I was a kid, but it doesn't change the fact that the original incarnations of the franchises from the late 80's or 90's will always be the peak of its popularity.

I always hated TMNT *gets flameshield*  8-P

I remember Dino Thunder, waking up at 7:30 AM on Saturday to watch it LOL. It was a Saturday morning thing along with Sonic X and Kirby Right Back at Ya.

I watched Power Rangers in the 90s too though. Turbo and In Space specifically.

I loved the dark tone of the show. It's ok, my memories of TMNT (2003) were mostly from Miguzi, but I didn't watch it as much as the more popular original shows that would come on during Friday/Saturday nights or weekend time slots on CN. I remember a lot of Dino Thunder episodes on Jetix though, like yesterday. I think the first Power Rangers show I ever watched was Ninja Storm, which was epic as well.

Periods are usually sub-divided into early, middle, and late stages.

1999,2000, and 2001: Part 1 of the early '00s
2002, 2003, and 2004: Second part
2005, 2006, and 2007: Mid '00s
2008, 2009, and 2010: Late '00s

1999 was the quintessential year of the 2000s for pop culture and music. '99 was the first year when '10s shows like Family Guy were launched, Dubbya age movie characters were introduced (I.e. Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity), and '00s pop culture institutions like Pokèmon saw their absolute peak. If you ask me, the events that occurred in the other years of the '00s were unimportant in comparison to those from 1999 and 2011. That's just my perspective on it, you're free to think otherwise.


I fail to see how 2002 is closer to 2003 and 2004 than it is 1999-2001. 2003 and 2004 had way more traces of 2000's culture than 2002 ever had.


Same could be said about the Simpsons or Spongebob Squarepants too. No matter how long these franchises go on, the Simpsons will always be associated with the 90's. Spongebob Squarepants will always be associated with the 2000's. Heck, even Buffy the Vampire Slayer which lasted from 1997-2003, it's a late 90's cultural show, because the majority of its peak was in the late 90's on WB from 1997-2001, and it wasn't as popular as before when it finished off its run from 2001-2003 on UPN. Pokemon, is an ongoing franchise, but what will its peak always be? 1998-2000, basically Indigo League, Orange Islands, and the Movie 2000. Even though the Johto era from 2000-2003 was still part of its golden age. The first few seasons of a show or the first half of a show is always the max popularity of the show.


I'm not too sure about this. Me and most Buffy fans I've met think of the show as both a 90's and early 00's show and think it was pretty consistent in terms of peak. Your experience might be different than mine, though.

Pokemon was more likely to be peaked during the late 90s and early 2000s. Besides that, I agree with this post. Much like of how Simpsons would be the quintessential 90s show, while Spongebob would be the quintessential 00s show, it would stay the same.


Yeah, Pokemon's popularity peak includes both the late '90s AND early '00s and not just one or the other. Simpsons' popularity was most certainly the late '80s - mid '90s.  By the late '90s apparently people have started complaining about how Simpsons is declining. And Spongebob's best era to people seems to be between 1999 - 2004 (or later). I'm not entirely sure on what the popularity of shows like Pokemon or Spongebob is now though. By the 1998 - 2003 I know Pokemon was in its golden age with people watching the show, getting the cards (heck the use of playing cards got even more popular when Yu Gi Oh came out. Then I'd see people carrying packs of both Yu Gi Oh and Pokemon), and playing the games. Although nowadays I don't see anyone playing with the cards anymore. And I have no idea what state the TV show is in now.

Wait, you still saw people playing with Pokemon cards even after Yu Gi Oh came out? I was told that afterwards, around 2002, Pokemon died card-wise.

I didn't see Pokemon cards die until the original series ended which was 2002-2003. But I'm mostly basing things my the things that I've seen. Pokemon cards can easily be seen as a short lived fad in terms of popularity. From what I remember it was thanks to Yu Gi Oh as to why playing with cards was seen as the "cool" thing. Kids and Teens all collecting their cards and setting up games for either Pokemon or Yu Gi Oh. The only say that Pokemon's peak era was when it was sharing the spotlight with Yu Gi OH. But then again when Yu Gi Oh came out Pokemon didn't lose popularity. Rather I'd see kids who were both Yu Gi Oh AND Pokemon kids. And not just one or the other.

I can see kids being the main ones watching it. Most people nowadays seem to have outgrown Pokemon and are tired of it. Kids today who haven't experienced Pokemon before would be the main ones watching it today. But if you've been playing since Gen 1 and 2 then you'd probably get tired of the series by today.

Ah, ok. This makes sense. Some people cut it off at 2000, some at 2001 and other's at 2003 so there's a lot of different experiences with Pokemon here. Would you say Pokemon's peak in general aligns with the 1998-2003 Y2K era?

Pretty much. It's one the main things that I use to define Y2K era. The original series released in 1998 and ended in 2003. Indigo League (the first season of the original series) started in 1998. And Master Quest (the last season of the original series) ended in 2003. The original series is when Misty was alongside Ash and Brock. By 2004 she was replaced.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Pok%C3%A9mon_episodes

Pokemon (Series 1) was the golden age of Pokemon.

The Advanced Generation, Diamond & Pearl, XY, etc. from late 2003-present have been the new incarnations of Pokemon that's still going on to this day.

Also, in reality, Pokemon was always popular from 1998-2003. The only difference was that from 1998-2000 it was Digimon competing against Pokemon, which didn't have much competition, but from 2001-2003, it was Yu-Gi-Oh competing against Pokemon, which had A LOT more competition. Why were Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh on the same channel? Unlike Digimon? Well, it was pretty obvious.

I like this because it strengths our view of the Y2K era! Once again the changes in 2003/2004 show themselves! ;D ;D ;D

But yeah, even though I don't have much experience with it, Pokemon peaking and still being popular from 1998-2003 just makes sense to me. I remember my cousins watching the show and playing with the cards until 2004. Even things like Yu Gi Oh and Digimon are definitely Y2K things that co-existed with Pokemon.

Yeah, Yu Gi Oh being on the same channel as Pokemon also made it a crazy competition. After late 2003/2004 Pokemon was going through a lot of changes. New Pokemon, Region, Characters etc. Comparing seasons with Misty to the season with May or Dawn would instantly show you the big changes.

In Canada Digimon and Pokémon both came on YTV, so the Digimon vs Pokémon debates raged on pretty hard 1999-2002.  ;D I was a Pokémon kid who wasn't going to take it from those Digimon kids  >:(

I didn't care much for the Yugioh TV show honestly, nor did much of the girls in my class. I watched it but if I missed it, it wouldn't be the end of the world.  The card game was damn addictive though.

Did Pokémon and Digimon air at the same time/hour?

Pokémon vs Yugioh debate doesn't sound as interesting. Pokémon smokes Yugioh easily. The Yugioh TV show is very difficult to watch even today.  ;D

I think on YTV, Rugrats used to come at 4, Hey Arnold! at 4:30, Digimon at 5, Pokemon at 5:30. If you went to the playground at 5 o clock, it would be a ghost town. One of the neighbourhood kids used to call out from their window that Digimon was on and we'd drop everything then and there and go home to watch Digimon  ;D

I think after Yugioh came on, Rugrats went off air. Hey Arnold came at 4, Yugioh at 4:30, Digimon at 5 and Pokémon at 5:30.

Edit: or Rugrats might have come on at 3:30. I wasn't allowed TV till I finished homework.

Oops, I forgot about Wild Force, I don't remember any before that one. I did not watch FOX Kids or FOX BOX though. On Saturday mornings I mainly watched Kids WB the most or OSM/ABC Kids sometimes. I looked on wikipedia and it said that Ninja Storm was the first owned by Disney, and Wild Force was the last one owned by FOX. Maybe that's why most of my memories are from Ninja Storm and onwards, but Dino Thunder was my favorite one, and I remember more episodes from that series than any other. Heck even S.P.D. from 2005 I didn't watch as much. Dino Thunder is the one I kept up with the most out of all the series.

Let me re-phrase that for you. Family Guy is still currently on the air.


But that doesn't make it a 2010s show. Even though it's still making new episodes, it's not directly a 2010s show. Most people would believe that its golden age was from the 2000s. Same with most people think The Simpsons was a 90s show.

Correct, it's on the air at the moment and you can watch it on demand.

Not to mention, when I go on Google and look at what was on TV in 2013, Family Guy appears along with a plethora of other TV shows that were on at the time.

You are not hearing where I'm coming from. The show did not cease to exist after the last year of the 2000s. It is in the "jump the shark mode" today, but it has not been cancelled thus far in this time like it was in the 2000s.

Both the Simpsons and Days of our Lives are 2010's shows then. One started in f*ckin' 1965 and still runs today, the other 1989 but it hasn't ceased it's runtime, yet. 1965 is the beginning of 2010's culture with 1989 1990 ('cause that's when the first couch gag episode was aired) being the start of the second era which culminated to phase 1 in 1999 and went full circle in 2011.

Yeah, by having Peter doing sh*t with his friends more than his family does. Not even Stewie, Brian, Lois, Chris, or Meg get that much attention in the show. It's just either Peter or his friends that gets attention nowadays. Plus, their fanatics aren't really that excited to watch Family Guy anymore.

Darth Vader action figures are still being sold in stores at this time. People who grew up with the original trilogy are introducing their children to all of the characters they loved in the early '80s, at the moment. I was really surprised, last month, when I saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles slippers that almost resembled the ones from the early '90s at Target. They are not relevant in this time like Minecraft or Five Nights at Freddy's is, but some retro character items have been disappearing from stores in this century so far.

My wife says the same thing!


Most the commentators are little kids, man.  I hope you're not swearing around them  ;D


I dunno, man. I've noticed when kids get into "old skool banz" they always go for the mid 00's section of their discography and nothing before. Case in point? Kids into Green Day, Simple Plan and Good Charlotte. Always their worst albums of all time. Never the good stuff. I usually comment on things from the 80's to early 00's. ;D


Hey Jordan, can you send a link to your YT account?


There's literally nothing on it but here you go: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKmJditHEq2WQYALhVYlHSA


Swearing at little kids is what helps them grow up to be adults.  8) Also you'd be surprised on how many 11-14 year olds would tell people to "F*** off" or just say other unpleasant things.


This is the truth.

I've been cursing since I was 7.

Question: do those comments (the ones praising mid-2000s music) drive you up a wall? ;D

It seems that recently, more and more people who are in elementary school are posting YouTube comments, getting nostalgic for things that still seem relatively "new". Of course, kids always posted on YouTube, but the difference is that now they're openly saying "i'm 8 years old and I like this song", or giving away their personal information via Google+.

Yeah! It's the worst! Not really praising it 'cause people can like whatever, but treating it like it's "early 2000s" and forcing the opinion like it's "just as good as 2000-2003!" The Y2K era was a special time! I wish it lasted that long but it certainly didn't.


Yeah, that's weird. I hope parents put a stop to that since there's a lot of disgusting f*ckin' weirdos on YouTube. Kids need a balance. Technology is good but that's too much. This is kinda off-topic but pretty interesting to me. One thing I've noticed is that a good amount of younger people just getting into Pop Punk (or anything "Punk" related like Emo or Post-Hardcore) usually ignore the early 00's and go for the 2004-onward stuff (i.e. Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Green Day, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, My Chemical Romance or even stuff like Avril Lavigne). I guess it's because the early 2000's might feel really outdated to these guys are they might relate to the mid 00's stuff more. When they do find the early 00's stuff, they think "omg myspace days". Most of these people fall into the 11-21 category I think. I can't really speak from personal experience (aside from stuff I've read online) but I asked my 3rd cousin (born 1994) the other day about it and he pretty much confirmed it. He said a lot of people around his age (especially girls) like stuff like GC's Chronicles or Life and Death (2004) and Simple Plan's 2008 self-titled and don't like the pre-2004 stuff. Other bands who's later stuff didn't get much recognition like their early stuff (i.e. Sum 41, NFG) don't receive much positive reception.

What's weird about that is a '94 born mainly grew up in the early '00s. But hey opinion is opinion I guess. I need to keep reminding myself that just because people grew up in an era it doesn't mean they'd automatically like everything from that era. To me the early '00s (along with the late '90s) is one of my most favorite  time periods. I do like the mid 00s, but it's my second favorite era.

Well, it could be different when it comes to music. Many people don't really get into music until their teen years, so 1994-borns might've had 2007 emo as their gateway to music (and to Jordan's horror ;D).

Example: someone born in 1960 may technically still be a Baby boomer, but they were more likely to have first-hand exposure to something like disco or 70s prog rock as opposed to the Beatles.

That's what I thought! You'd expect a 1994 born to be nostalgic for the early 00's but apparently the people he knows are more into the mid-00's when it comes to "old" things. It's so weird. I guess they like the "seriousness" of that time opposed to the wackiness of the early 00's. My favorite era of all time is starting around 1976/1977 to 2003, for sure.

That is to my horror! They should be listening to real Emo from 1984-2003! Not that mid 00's stuff! 8-P
One thing that really irks me is when I see comments on bands like Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, The Used and Dashboard Confessional for their 2001-2002 albums and they're called "Myspace bands". The bands I've mentioned didn't even sound close to the core 2000's Emo sound when they released albums from 2000-2003! >:(

That is a good example, though. It makes sense.

Yeah, but they're not really Myspace bands in the sense that From First to Last or Aiden are. Back then, before I stopped going to shows (this would be 2004-mid 2005), the only thing I really remember hearing about Y2K bands would be people reppin' The Used's 2004 In Love and Death (their first core 2000's sounding album), maybe a little bit of JEW and Dashboard's Vindicated. I didn't hear much about the 1998-2003 albums anymore aside from Fall Out Boy's Take This to Your Grave and blink's self-titled.

My introduction to music was what my older family members had. Because of that as I got older I'd always still want to hear the sound of the older songs. Newer songs aren't bad, but as of today I'm tired of all this weird electropop! But what you're saying makes sense. For most people I guess it would be their teen years. But that still doesn't explain to me as to why they don't give older music a try/chance. I was never a teen in the '80s, but I love the sound of 80s music.

I like the more wacky spirit of songs. It gives you that feeling that the singers are having fun while they sing. It's not all dark and serious. I can listen to early 00's dance music all day (which I actually did over the past few hours) 8) Anyways it makes me wonder what type of songs the kids of today will be listening to in the future.

Linkin Park's In The End I can understand since it's the one of the only Nu Metal songs that people still listened to after 2003 (but even that's rare to find!) but... Drowning Pool? I thought that band faded out during the end of the Y2K era since the last time I heard about them was 2003! When did Bodies get big again?

I was only a kid in the 80's but I loved all the Punk and Alternative from the time. My first steps in to music were through my brother. He was into Grunge and I may not like that stuff much but I always thought Nirvana was a really good band. Step 2 was Beavis and Butthead. Finally, Dookie and Smash cemented me.

You know what's funny, though? When Y2K era bands try to be serious yet the videos are so goofy that you can't take it seriously at all! It's hilarious to watch Linkin Park and Creed videos from the era. The Y2K era was all about good times. Early 00's dance music has such a cool vibe. The keyboard is usually either dreamy or electronic and it's very percussion based. I'm not the biggest dude into dance music but when I hear that 1998-2003 sound, I usually won't turn it off because it sounds pretty cool and reminds me of the time. The videos are always wacky! They've always got blinding colors and weird dreamy vibes. Another sound that went away sometime in 2004! It's strange to think in the future kids will be nostalgic for Drake or Justin Bieber... 8-P

A lot of YouTube videos in the late 00s (over)used that song, to the point where the saying "Let the bodies hit the floor" has become an Internet meme.

It was already a pretty big song in 2001 and 2002 but Google has told me that "The song gained more popularity in later years after it was offered to content creators of YouTube as a free song to be dubbed over their video for audio." Is this true? If so, that would explain a lot.

My brother born 1994 actually started listening to music in 2004, and to Jordan's delight it was mostly pop punk like Simple Plan and Sum 41  :P (their early 2000s stuff)

But yeah, our core music period was our teenagehood, so mostly 2005-2010 stuff. Emo, metal, Indie rock and R&B.

I agree. The sound of the music (and not to mention, the look of the videos) really does help create that atmosphere. Music today is all soulless and digital.

Good! I am glad that despite getting into music in 2004, he got into the good early 2000's stuff!

I consider my "core music period" 1994-2003 (which is actually the whole second wave of Pop Punk's time span).


Yeah, I'd say that's true.


That makes sense then. Only way I could ever see Drowning Pool being relevant outside of the early 00's.

I think the main introduction to the world of music for most 92-94 borns would be movies like School of Rock, Freaky Friday and Cheaper by the Dozen, and a few others. Me, my friends and my brother were obsessed with those movies.

Those are hipster bands (which I do not enjoy since I'm not a hipster)!

Oh, those movies are rad. School of Rock is sweet 'cause it has a whole bunch of 70's and 80's Punk references and the Ramones are on the soundtrack. Freaky Friday and Cheaper by the Dozen are loaded with early 2000's Pop Punk. Man, you had Sum 41, Simple Plan, Bowling for Soup, Diffuser and American Hi-Fi in the movies. What a time to be alive. I remember the time I saw Sugar Ray (8-P 8-P 8-P 8-P) in Scooby Doo. I thought "What the hell are these assholes doing here! They're ruining the movie!!"

They're kids who are still in elementary school and are nostalgic towards sh*t on the Internet? That's really sad for them. When I was a kid, I really didn't give a damn about being nostalgic towards the earlier years of my childhood. I still thought that five years back in 2010 wasn't even that long ago for me. It wasn't until 2014, when I saw that 2004 was 10 years ago. A whole decade from a year when I was actually a kid. Now that's nostalgic.

But having 8 year olds (who aren't even double-digits), that's a entirely different story for them. They aren't even a decade old, and they literally want to be nostalgic towards sh*t. Why couldn't they just watch something else like cartoons or anything else besides old music that are surrounded by people obsessed with the 90s/early 2000s? (No offense, Jordan)

I don't see how I'm old, either. 33 is still a pretty young age. You know, my tastes haven't really changed at all since I was 14. I still like Beavis and Butthead, still like the real Green Day (R.I.P. 1986-2003), listen to the same pop punk and still bust out the ol' dickies. I'm young at heart!


33? Old? HA! It seems people are changing the definition for what counts as old nowadays. To me old is 50+ or 60+. And at times I've seen people in their 30s who behave and look like they're in their 20s.

ages 0-9: child look

ages 10-19: transition from child to young adult look

ages 20-29: young adult look

ages 30-39: transition from young adult to middle aged look

Now this on average, and different families have different family traits and trends that get passed down. If you don't smoke or get on drugs your whole life, it makes sense that you're going to stay young for your age for a while. So depending on your health, this may not apply to you 100%

I agree! When I think of "old" I think of 65 and up! There's no way in hell I'm old just 'cause I like the things of my youth. I just have supreme taste.

To me old is a someone who is a senior citizen. Which is when a person is in their 60s. 50s or younger is not old to me.

Yep! This sounds about right. And if you don't smoke, do drugs, excerise, and eat healthy then not only will you end up looking up to 10+ years younger than your actual age but you'd also extend your life span. I'm glad I haven't down drugs, smoke, or drink in my whole life.

I've smoked pot... twice? I think and it sucks. It's way overrated and just makes you paranoid. Sure, it helps some people relax but not me! I've gotten drunk a couple of times which I don't really do anymore because I turn into a huge douchebag who get's slapped by women. I think the last time I got drunk was high school. Alcohol and drugs are overrated and are not requirements for "living a full life" or having a good time like most people believe. Way too expensive, too.

I would say late 2006 through 2008 was it's own era, known as the late 2000's cultural period.

2009 was more of a transitional year from late 2000's to early 2010's culture, and why, because a lot of the big cultural trends that began in 2009 would end up peaking for most of the early 2010's.

It has two good songs. Only two! It's great because they're the last two songs on the album. Divided by Zero could be better. It sounds a bit like a "Rage and Grace" song (but better) and that album sucked. Slim Pickens sounds like an Americana outtake which was cool. Coming For You (that wasn't on the new album, though :P) is one of the worst songs they've ever done, though. It sounds like some crappy Muse rip off from 2007. Why can't they do more fast 90's/early 00's skate punk songs!?

I loved the song Coming For You for the longest time because I thought it had the words "Donkey Kong" in the chorus for the longest time. Sold out, blow out, Donkey Kong! But apparently it's "don't get caught", not Donkey Kong. I can't listen to it anymore.

Whoops! I thought it was ;D

I loved the song Coming For You for the longest time because I thought it had the words "Donkey Kong" in the chorus for the longest time. Sold out, blow out, Donkey Kong! But apparently it's "don't get caught", not Donkey Kong. I can't listen to it anymore.

Their Rise & Fall album was my favourite, they had songs like You're Gonna Go Far Kid, Let's Hear it for Rock Bottom and Half-Trusim.

Admittedly I haven't listened to their 90s stuff, I'm awful >_


Nah, that awful album came out in 2012. That song is from last year. ;D

They do that twice! They got another song called "Genocide" (look it up. It's amazing) and it sounds like he says "Donkey Kong everyday" but he actually says "dog eat dog". That one is actually a good song unlike the 2007 Muse ripoffs they do these days! >:( I got into Punk with Smash along side Dookie.

The only song I can tolerate is Hammerhead, Trust in You and Stuff is Messed Up (or Sh!t is F*cked Up as it should be called). Much better than 21st Century Breakdown from the same year, though. I hate that album. But Half-Truism? 8-P That's some Helena rip-off and I cannot listen to something that rips off 2004-onward My Chemical Romance!

:o

I will put an end to this. I'll just send you some well known singles from the ye olde times:

(this one's from 2000 but let's just shove 2000-2002 in with the 90's)

You start from here!! Everything from their 1989 self-titled up to Splinter is really good.

Of course! That game is one of my favourites! The DK rap in the beginning is unforgettable! ;D

I did and I completed everything. The final boss is a little difficult, but if you're skilled you can beat him easily. As for the rap, I remember it like it was yesterday. It's still stuck to me to this day ;D

To me old is a someone who is a senior citizen. Which is when a person is in their 60s. 50s or younger is not old to me.


60s isn't really old. My parents are in their 60s they're not that old yet. They're definitely getting older though. 60s to me is like the cusp between middle aged and old. 60 is still (upper) middle aged, 69 is more young old though. 70s is definitely getting old though, early 70s isn't that bad (young old) yet but late 70s is getting in the solidly old category. There's a pretty massive difference between say a 62 year old and a 78 year old, one is just on the older side but not really old yet the other is definitely old.
