Subject: How old do the 2000's feel to you?

Written By: The Burger King on 02/19/16 at 6:11 pm

Since there is already a thread about how old the 90's feel to people, I decided to make one for the 2000's. I can't believe that no one has done this yet.

My personal opinion:

2000-2001: Old
2002-2005: Outdated
2006-mid 2008: Not that outdated but getting there
Late 2008-2009: Feels almost like yesterday.

I think no one's done one yet because it is still relatively recent ;D

2000-2001: Old
2002-2004: Outdated
2005-2006: Dated
2007-2009: Recent

1999/2000/2001 are tricky. It feels old in my head, but when I look at pictures from then, it doesn't look as outdated as you'd expect.

I could get it if people do it for the early 2000's, but the late 2000's in my opinion (even as a guy born in 1999 who saw the late 00's in an 8-10 year old's point of view) feel so recent.

I wouldn't use outdated. It seem to reference Vintage old. Unless its the same as dated.

I've said this before, but *something* happened in the mid 00s that i would consider the dividing line between "old" and "new".

Take this for example. If someone on an Internet forum said "Man, I remember playing Sonic Adventure 2 battle while watching Samurai jack and rocking out to Blink-182, good times, good times", hundreds of other people would probably join in with him.

But then, if that guy said "Man, I miss playing Super mario galaxy on my Wii while listening to Katy Perry, those were good times", the responses would've been "Go away, dumb little kid" - despite 2008 only being FIVE years away from 2003.

This strikes me as odd. How can 2003 be a nostalgic, distant memory, but 2008 be modern garbage? Only five years had passed between then. Some kind of paradigm shift happened between those years.

But "vintage" has a respectable vibe to it. Vinyl is vintage. The PS2 is not, it's just outdated.

Probably because it is recent  ;D ;)

"Feel to you?" is the most important part of this question. So I'll go based off my memories, personal life, and experiences.

2000-2001: feels like millions of years ago; ancient

2002-2004: feels like a long time ago; old

2005-2007: feels like a while ago; dated

2008-2009: feels like yesterday; recent

2004-2006 Not retro, but very dated (Web 2.0 era for example isn't retro, but it's very dated to what we have in Web 3.0)
2007-2009 Somewhat dated, but also somewhat recent (2007 seems dated, but 2008-2009 seem like a mix of dated and recent)

2000 & 2001: Ridiculously dated; Almost old school.

2000-2002:  Mildly retro.  Video games with rounded 3D polygons, iTunes, and music that's either hyper-slick or indie (i.e., The Strokes) cause this period to not seem extremely far back, but it's also just old enough to feel classic.  This period seems artificially older to me, however, when I consider that it's chronologically closer to the 1980s than to present day.

2003-2006:  Solidly outdated.  This period still doesn't emanate classic vibes to me, not just because of chronological proximity, but also due to most popular culture declining in quality during this time, aside from 2004's excellent lineup of video games and movies.  Smosh posted a video in late 2014 that accurately satirizes how the mid-2000s have become outdated by today's standards, although I still don't look at 2004 and think it's a completely different universe from today, unlike 1985 versus 1975 or 1995 versus 1985.  The biggest distinguishers between this era and today are the lack of social media besides MySpace, flip-phones instead of touchscreen phones, the abundance of bushy-haired males (scene and emo were only sub-communities that few people were a part of from what I remember), and online video not being well-established yet.

2007-2008:  These years are moderately outdated, but nonetheless don't feel terribly disconnected from the present, despite being as close to today as the Y2K era.  The major factor that dates this period is that HD format was not yet standard, so a lot of videos, both on television as well as YouTube, retain the low-resolution fullscreen look of older generations.  Still, with Wikipedia being completely established, online web videos being plentiful and accessible, seventh-generation video game consoles as well as an over-saturation of mature, cutscene-heavy FPS's becoming standard, Facebook growing in popularity, and popular music just starting to move more in the direction of electronic dance and, aside from Timbaland, abandoning the shuffle-beat style that had dominated 1997-2006, these years are still pretty not too far from home.  I'm partly biased here because I started high school in 2007, but even the first half of the year still seems a lot more modern to me than the few years preceding it.

2009:  This year is on the cusp of being mildly outdated and moderately outdated.  This was the year that 2010s culture gradually overtook 2000s culture, but things like scene, post-grunge, pop punk, and Blackberry phones still hung around through to the end, despite the fact that things like Lady Gaga, the Great Recession, Obama, and social media were on everybody's minds by this time.  HD videos were now common, although some online shows, like AVGN, wouldn't make the switch from SD until up to two years later.  iPhones, while just starting to pick up in sales, were still not dominant yet.  Social attitudes were starting to pick up in progressivism around this time, but the social climate had not yet gotten as rancid as it was by spring 2013.

Agree. I've said before, I think it takes about 20 years for something to be truly retro.

2000-2001: Very dated, especially pre-9/11. Feels like a different era, culturally and technologically.
2002-2006: Dated, but still has some connection to the present; a transition to the current era.
2007-2009: Slightly dated. Same general era as today (although I think we're currently transitioning into a new one).

Overall, the 2000s is in that phase where it's too old to be 'current' but too new to be 'retro'. Like you said, culturally irrelevant (outside of this forum, obviously).

Yeah, I don't feel like any of the 2000s are retro either, though there are some retro elements. In general, any year where having a Windows PC in your house is common doesn't feel retro to me just yet. Maybe it will in 5 years, who knows.

Mid-1996 and before: retro
Late 1996, 1997: borderline retro
1998-2001: old
2002-2004: outdated
2005-2006: dated
2007-early 2009: recent, but phasing out of relevance
late 2009-2012: current, fading away slowly
2013-2016: current era

is what I feel overall.

The reason for that "defining event" so to speak is due to the culture having not changed that much between 2008 and now.

Everything is roughly similar despite being eight years down the line. I know what you mean, I find it an interesting phenomenon as well.

It's weird being my age as well because when Rihanna was 18 and new on the scene I was also 18. But I know some fit young thing in the future is going to be a lot younger than me but I will still be perving on them :D

The 2000s weren't really that old in 2012-13. Hell, I wouldn't even think it was that old until 2014. Probably because the mid-late 2000s were more nostalgic to me, rather than the early 2000s.

Naw, not that long, especially the late 2000's. I'm younger than you and even some years in that decade feel like yesterday to me. I can agree that the early 2000's or 1st half of the 2000's feel like a very long time ago now. However, 2005-2007 just feel like awhile ago, but not too long ago. 2008-present feels like yesterday. Any year in my life when my youngest sister was born (2008), I had gotten the Wii, or Barack Obama was gaining popularity before he got elected, all of that feels like yesterday to me. The technology from the late 2000's doesn't feel that distant from the present either.

I think a lot of memories throughout your life have a lot to do with your family situations too, not just politics, the world, or the pop culture. If you were a type of person who moved to a lot of different houses or lived with many other people throughout your life, I could understand why previous years feel like a long time ago to you since A LOT has changed so much in a gradual period of time. A year either feels like yesterday to me or a long time ago to me depending on how well my memories are or how my life has changed. 2002-2004 feels like long time ago to me because while those memories are very clear with what happened in my life, some memories & details have slowly fainted as I've gotten older. I probably remembered being 7 years old a lot better in detail 10 years ago than I can now.

I was in Junior High school and a very different person. And like the poster above I also had an IPod Nano, which was very popular at that time. I played online games and browsed the web on my Desktop computer. I didn't have a cellphone or any other mobile device. I was 12-14 years old. I'm very nostalgic for that period.

I've said this before. Before I joined this forum a couple months ago, the late 2000s seemed like yesterday. Now they seem very distant. My perspective has changed within a matter of months because there are so many people who are nostalgic for the late 2000s on this board. The nostalgia makes the late 2000s seem long ago. Hell, even 2010 is beginning to feel distant.

The early 2000s are very dated to borderline retro (not ancient imo). The mid 2000s as well as '06 and '07 are old school and 2008 and 2009 is just 'dated' in my opinion.

2000 (and 2001 a bit) feels retro, but it isn't actually yet because society hasn't collectively agreed for it to be retro yet, it's usually has to be 20 years for something to be retro and mainstream nostalgia of people of all ages sees it as such. So I'd give it another 2 years or so. Everyone is still stuck on the 1990s at this point. But absolutely at this point I can see the year 2000 being retro now given how it looks or at least borderline retro. It actually looks how the 1980s looked like back in the 2000s, all tacky and old. Which is really weird because I actually remember that time. In the year 2020 I bet millennial era culture will have huge nostalgia to it.

Songs and videos like this already have that retro feel to it:

Any year where the Internet and cellphones were common is a bit difficult to call retro for the moment. That's why I think 1998 is the last retro year. But 1999/2000 are definitely getting close (borderline retro), those were the last years you didn't need Internet access or cellphone to get by, even though tons of people had them and they were a part of daily life.

In 2001, I remember DVDs and broadband getting popular, and of course you had the 6th generation of consoles, so it's going to be a couple of more years before I consider that retro.

In 2003, DVD and broadband and cellphones were more or less established, LCD computers largely replaced CRTs, you start rechargeable portable devices like the GBA SP and iPod, and you get MySpace at the end of the year too, so it will be quite a while before I call 2003 retro.

If you said "18 years ago" in 2000, you meant the early 80s.
"9 years ago" in 2009 still points out to another 2000s year, so it's not as dated in comparison.

I showed my dad the Rock Your Body music video a few months ago, which released in 2003 and he guessed that it released in the 90's and was surprised when I told him it was 2003. He said looking back on it, you can really tell how dated the early 2000's have become and they look so much older than he expected.

Also, he recently started looking at the 2000's as its' own decade instead of seeing the 00's and 10's as one thing because I've heard him mention the 2000's referring to the decade a few times in the last six months whereas I never heard him refer to them before then.

That's pretty much my opinion, but I'm wondering if it 's not just my age showing a bit. The technology of the early '00s isn't retro to me because I can recall when it was new and quite a large step over what came before. DVD's, 6th gen consoles, and all that stuff was amazing back during the early '00s compared to even most late '90s stuff. But, to a kid that was born during the '00s, I would imagine that the tech of that era would look considerably more retro. If you've grown up with everything we've had over the last several years, even early '00s tech would look quite old. Actually, I have some younger cousins that have never even watched a movie on DVD because they only watch them online.

Early '00s does seems really old to me now tbh. You're talking pre mainstream smartphone era, pre social media, for a lot of people still dialup internet times, and CRT TVs still dominant, film cameras were still huge. The early '00s seem A LOT older than the late '00s, honestly it's a pretty massive difference. I suppose the mid '00s is borderline. I'd say if you're talking 2001 or 2002, yeah that is a long time ago and quite different from today. 2008 on the other hand...It's a little while ago but not massively different.

Hmm, just because 9/11 happened doesn't mean everything changed or went away. Especially in places like Europe or Japan they still held onto the Y2K look since things like 9/11 never happened in those locations.

That music video was done by "Play" which is a Swedish pop group which means they reside somewhere within Europe. If Y2K ended in 2001 then it must just be talking about America. In other regions the end date is different, I think.  In places like Japan the Y2K look didn't fade entirely until the end of '02 or sometime in '03.

Culturally, most of the 2000s were more focused on TV, movies, and other songs instead of memes. It was like a more technologically advanced 90s than anything. But with the prevalence of the Internet, it seems to be a bit distinct to people compared to other decades.

That is a mix of bias and just stupidity. Lack of distinct culture does not equal bad culture. Doesn't matter a person's age as last I checked your age and whether a specific era had a specific culture does not relate to whether or not things within the culture were of poor quality.

What is pop culture? A catch all term used to describe things such as fashion, games, movies, cartoons, sitcoms, songs, celebrities, slang, sports etc. I certainly don't remember anyone saying any of these particular things sucked because they "lacked their own specific style" (a saying that is 100% false). A lot of fashion in the 2000s felt different from things found in other decades, gaming in the 2000s is never confused or mixed with gaming in other decades and stand on its own, who confuses hit 2000s movies like Harry Potter, Finding Nemo, Shrek, or Lord of the Rings as movies from other decades or say they lack their own particular style? I can do this all day honestly.

If I were to say that the 2000s didn't have a specific culture that in no way can be considered a bad thing. All this means is that in the 2000s no one wanted to stick to a specific style that the other person was doing. And why would anyone really want this? Imagine being a hit producer making a movie. Would you try and go for the same style/vibe that everyone else was going for or try and do something different that you find interesting? 2000s was the decade where people didn't want to just stick with one particular cultural vibe and just did a ton of other things. Thus bringing in variety which is in no way a bad thing.

You know what'll make a decade suck? If nearly everything in it were to feel similar. Imagine dealing with that for 10 years straight.

Whoops! My post got too long.  :-[ The 2000s does have its own style, but it's "style" is more so a lack of uniformed style. There was something for everyone even before the time where the internet completely took over pop culture.

This surge for "distinct culture" annoys me tbh. It's just basically relating different time periods to a bunch of cliches while there are so much more about them. Take the 90s for example, always resumed to Grunge Grunge and Grunge while there's so much more to them (Eurodance, Early Rave Culture, other Alt Rock genres, Trip Hop, all very popular too, if not more).

I feel people on the internet in general are needlessly harsh with the two most recent decades. When you come to the point you read inane stuff like «Culture in 2017 is the exact same as that in 2000» it's pretty clear people are just lazily trying to gab at those decades ::) (granted I read it in youtube comments and we all know Youtube comments are unnormally terrible for internet standards).

I fail to find any flaws in this post. I used to want a new decade with a distinct culture, but then I ask myself why this is necessary in the first place.  When I like a decade like the 1940s I certainly wouldn't say it's because it had a distinct kind of pop culture. Heck even the 1990s didn't have a truly distinct culture. The early 90s was really just late 80s part 2. Mid 90s is true 90s (but also the most boring part to me). And the late 90s went into the Y2K era which I consider separate from true 90s culture since by that time the Y2K is when 00s culture began to overtake 90s culture by around '99 (at least in my opinion. You can see it differently).

I always thought the the 2000's was all about stripped down minimalism, and trying hard not to appear inauthentic or cheesy in the future. That's why I think it didn't feel as in your face as other decades have been.

That's basically what the 2010s are to me.

2000s was all about maximalism, bling-bling, flashiness and excess.

I remember in college we were watching a documentary that looked so incredibly late 80s/early 90s, and when it finished, it said clearly "Filmed in 2001" and the entire class lost their minds over how insanely old it looked. Honestly, I'm usually pretty damn good with identifying decades, and this documentary film looked solidly like 1993.

Part of me feels like my brain kind of froze in 2008 or so. 08 feels like literally yesterday to me, I guess cause that was the year I started becoming more aware of world events, and started following the news quite religiously, whereas I actively try to avoid it now. I was also very proficient with all the current technology at the time, whereas now I'm clueless, and lost, and honestly kind of dislike how far consumer technology is going

The 2000s is definitely showing it's age now as we closer to the 20s. I still find the mid 2000s somewhat modern because of the rise of social media sites like Facebook, Myspace, and Youtube and the rise of flat-screen TVs.

Anything before 2004 feels outdated to me; sometimes, the 2000s feels like yesterday to me, and other times, it feels like a long lost decade I admire, like how people admire ancient civilization.

2009 feels like yesterday for me, even though it was nine years ago.

To be honest, I believe that there are some aspects of that year that felt a lot more like the core 2010's (2012-2017) than the core 2000's (2002-2007).

By the end of the year, things were already very different than they were even in 2007 according to my observations.

Well, that's because you were 10 years old. It makes sense.

You weren't 4 years old. However, 2009 definitely feels like a while ago because a lot has changed since then.

There are certain things about the last few years of the '00s that are getting dated. My parents got their first HDTV around 2008, but I was still using a CRT until a few years later. Plus, social media was still much more catered towards the younger crowd back then. The only guys that had Facebook were still mostly my college buddies, and most of these other social media apps had not yet reached the mainstream as they have the last years where pretty much everybody regardless of age goes on them.

It's been a couple of years since I last answered the 'how old...' question, so now I think:

2000-2002: very old, almost retro
2003-2005: old, but still a few years away from being retro
2006-2008: very dated
2009: dated

Yeah but I have this strange thing where I can recall stuff super clear from ages people would usually say "How on Earth can I remember that?" (3..4...5..). So for most of 2008, it was like this "blurry world" and then Late 2008 was when things started to focus.  :P With that in mind, 2009 doesn't feel that old which makes it weird that 2008 feels worlds away, only being a year before.

My take on it


2001-2002- Feels like it could be 30 years ago

2004-2006  Feels very dated and retro

2007-  Dated with a modern twist (Iphone)

2008-  Dated by still has a dash of newness to it

2009- Dated but feels more recent



2007/2008 is the cut off point of something feeling recent

Do you think that 2008 is the last year that is a "completely different age from today"? I think so, especially given the fact that it is already a whole decade ago and that it was the last year where emo was still popular.

Somewhat, I think 2006 would be that,  as other users would say here the "2000s"  feeling was dissipating as 2007 went on
and by the time we got to the year 2008 it felt like things were on their very last legs. It appears that everything 2000s ish ened
in 2008 because a bunch of changes happened in Nov 2008, despite the changes being set up the year prior.


People need to remember KB TOYS and Circuit City were a joke and a shell of their former selves in 2008, no one was really shopping there
as they had in the 90s and early/mid 2000s, Toonami by 2008 was a joke with the new TOM,  TRL was already getting 0.3 ratings, no one was watching it anymore despite it being on the air, However the fashions remained the same, There was some emo kids back then,  Classic 2000s shows were pretty much almost off the air, the WWE really started sucking then, HD was becoming the standard around this time as well.


On paper looking at 2008 it looks like it's older than it actually felt, The fashions are there but you can't jump inside the pictures of videos
and get a feel for what it felt like, and what it felt like was an era closing that had already been closing the prior year. Most of the 2000s things
you look at in pictures and videos on youtube in 2008 were already on the decline upon viewing.


For example if someone was to say  anyone play Pokemon go? Some one would say.......  "um no one plays that anymore"
Yes there are people that still play it and it is in the app store, but it is on the decline and pretty much non existant despite being active.



If the 2000s was a party, 2008 would be when everyone started leaving for the door 1 by  1 " man this party is sure getting empty fast"

2009 would be when everyone is gone but you and the lights are shut off.
