Subject: Early 2000s teens vs Mid 2000s teens vs Late 2000s teens!

Written By: Eazy-EMAN1995 on 04/16/17 at 2:56 pm

Well... here we go! Now keep in mind I was just a kid, early teen during the era. But I do identify with the era though a lot though. Besides the kids stuff, I enjoyed the music, movies and yes even the TV shows from that era. The mid part of the decade usually gets A LOT of hate, especially from the folks on here. ;D ;D ;D
Arctic Fox is mainly the brains by the operation, but due to his dislike for the 00s mainstream culture he decided not to make one. So as a friend of his I took over this time around.

A Quote from the wise man himself.
"Adolescence is generally paired up with high school, and rightfully so. Just because you are 13 or 19 doesn't mean you are an adolescent—you are a teenager, not an adolescent! When I refer to "2000s Teens", I'm talking about people who spent either all or most of their high school years in the 2000's. I consider adolescence to span from the summer right before 9th grade year (because 9th grade isn't always considered high school) all the way through the summer immediately following 12th grade year." For someone who graduated high school in 2004, that would span June 2000 through August 2004. Going by past definitions by Arctic...

Early 2000s Teens: Class of 2002, Class of 2003, Class of 2004 and Class of 2005
Mid 2000s Teens: Class of 2006, Class of 2007, and Class of 2008
Late 2000s Teens: Class of 2009, Class of 2010, and Class of 2011

Again, as with the previous thread, I want you guys to talk about the differences between people who were in high school in the early '00s and people who were in high school in the middle and later '00s. Since this was the first era of Social Media, also the Reality TV explosion, location really matters when discussing a person's high school experience. But within these three chronological eras of the 2000's, people dressed differently, listened to different types of music, watched different tv shows, liked different types of movies, played different kinds of video games, and said different catch-phrases. So go ahead—compare and contrast early and mid '00s teenagers. How is someone who graduated high school in 2004 different from someone who graduated high school in 2008? I will classify Class of 2005 as early-to-mid '00s teens, Class of 2008 are mid-to-late '00s teens, and Class of 2011 as late '00s with an "acquired taste'' for early 10s culture.

After all these threads that ArcticFox made, this is truly the best. I was only a kid during the 2000s, but I did listen to a lot of mainstream music by the late 2000s. It's more kickass listening to Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Linkin Park, Evanescence, Kelis (the girl who made Milkshake), Kanye West, and the list goes on and on. If I were a 2000s teen, then I would've been using AIM frequently. But I only experienced using AIM by 2010/2011, when this decade was just getting started.

I think the coolest thing about being a 2000s teen (no matter if it came from the early, mid, or even late '00s), was that the Internet was a powerful underground for their culture. Anything that they would've talked about was on either AIM, MSN, ICQ, or Yahoo! IM. Not to mention that the flip phones were way cooler than the ones we have now. If only cell phones were used for texting and calling, and not everyday Internet use.

That is why I really don't like being a teen in this decade. Every meme has to be either dank, ironic, or just stupid in order to have yourself as cool.

Well you would still be in college if you were a 2000s teen. Unless you wanted a part-time job, then I could understand that. Personally I liked the 2000s culture because at least it wasn't full of stupid memes. I hated it ever since I turned 13.

I also forgot emo 8-P, another reason why I wouldn't have wanted to be  a 2000s teen. Being a 2010s teen isn't much better but I'll still take being 13-19 in 2012-2018 over being 13-19 in 2002-2008.

I will classify Class of 2005 as early-to-mid '00s teens


Great post. ;)

I just want to say that I agree with this part 100%. As a member of the Class of 2005, I feel like I really straddled the line between an early '00s teen and a mid '00s teen, as did everybody born between 1986-88, really.

Here's an overview of my four years in high school, just so you can see how much things changed during those years.

2001-02, freshman year: I started high school about two weeks before 9/11. At that time, no students had cell phones or MP3 players. The internet was not really a major part of our lives, but I would occasionally talk to my friends in chat rooms and using stuff like AIM, ICQ, and Yahoo! Messanger. The most popular music was Teen Pop acts like the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. The most popular Rock acts were Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Creed, P.O.D. and Nickleback. Pop-Punk like Blink-182, Simple Plan and American Hi-Fi were also really popular, as was Hip-Hop like Nelly, Jay-Z, OutKast and Shaggy. Spiked hair and baggy jeans were all the rage when it came to male fashion.

2002-03, sophomore year: 2002-03 was really not that much different from 2001-02, which is why I still consider it a firmly "early '00s" school year. Cell phones and MP3 players were still virtually nonexistent among students, and internet usage was still limited mostly to AIM and chat rooms. Teen Pop started to become slightly less popular this year, as did Nu Metal, but both genres were still mostly dominant in my school. Garage Rock Revival also started to really take off in 02-03, as The White Stripes and The Strokes catapulted into the mainstream. The "baggy" Y2K look was still in for guys.

2003-04, junior year: By the end of this year, I start noticing some students buying iPods and cell phones, but they are mostly still rare. This is the last school year for me that was 100% "social media free", as I was still not yet aware of MySpace. Chat rooms start getting less use, but AIM and Yahoo! Messenger remain popular. Nu Metal and Y2K era Teen Pop are pretty much completely dead by this point. Post-Grunge is the most popular genre of Rock, dominated by the likes of 3 Doors Down, Nickleback, Audioslave and Godsmack, along with Garage Rock groups like The White Stripes, Jet and The Vines. By and large, the year belongs to OutKast, who put out the epic Speakerboxxx/The Love Below double album around the start of the school year. 50 Cent is also quite popular this year.

2004-05, senior year: A year of fairly rapid change. 2004-05 was the last year that CD players outnumbered iPods. By early 2005, about 25% of the student body had an early flip-phone. Most students began to discover MySpace during the later part of this year, but YouTube and Twitter were still over a year away from existing. AIM is still popular. Most students here still have dial-up, but broadband internet is increasing in scope. Pop-Punk is starting to fade by this point, but early Emo acts like Jimmy Eat World and Dashboard Confessional begin to gain prominence. Green Day makes a comeback with American Idiot as students follow the 2004 presidential election, and The Killers have one of the biggest hits of the year in Mr. Brightside. By the time I graduate, early Emo styles can be seen popping up on campus.

The years I'm referring to are 15-18... 13 and 14 were ok. 19 was decent. The teen years overall were my least fav years. Those were the down years. :(

Wow.. so the 2001-02 season still had that millennium era holdover when it came to the music. Just the proof I needed to ensure folks that the 2001-02 season while clearly cultural early 00s still had that millennium influence. It's why I believe the 2002-03 season was the quintessential early 00s season. Also it went to show ya how things started changing during the 2003-04 season, the ultimate end of the early 00s and start of something new. and how the 2004-05 season was the peak of the era.

It probably depends on your situation. I was finally able to get a stable job in late 2010, so I enjoyed the early '10s quite a bit. Other friends I had, fresh out of college, were still struggling due to the effects of the Great Recession, so they probably don't look back as fondly on that time as I do.

Yeah I was going on my personal experiences. The mid 10s were DECENT personal life wise, but culturally and socially... pretty bad for me. :(  The early 10s would have gone A LOT better had I been 4-5 years older imo. or HELL 4-5 years younger probably.  :o

Early defiantly, I'm not sure about mid tho. Mid 10s are a mixed bag here.
The early 10s are usually praised by people who were either in their 20s or 18-19. Hell in the future those were kids during that time might even praise it.

I said the early and mid 2010s because that was when Obama was president. By the late 2010s though, it's sort of a mixed bag with Trump as president.

The early 10s are usually praised by people who were either in their 20s or 18-19. Hell in the future those were kids during that time might even praise it.


2010, 2011, and some of 2012 had 00s a lot of 00s holdovers though. Personally it was a horrible time but at least I liked some of the charts. The electropop of 2008-2011 was way different than the electronic music now.

Nah. Most (if not) all of 2012 was like the 2010s in a sense. They felt kinda different with 2010 and 2011.

True in most ways it was 10s but some of the pop charts the old electropop style.
Personally, late 2008 and onward really sucked. Now the problem is less financial (like it was in the late 00s and early 10s and it was downright horrific for a lot of people) but
more the whole world going to hell in a handbasket, which a lot started in 2012.

Arctic Fox metnioned this in his 2010s teens video, so I figure I should share it in the 2000s thread.

Also, perhaps the biggest divider between early 2000s teens and mid 2000s teens BAR NONE is that early 2000s teens were in high school for either all or most of the early portion of the decade. Mid 2000's teens, on the other hand, were still children, being in middle school or even elementary school during the early 2000s. Not only are mid 2000's teens, 90's kids, but they're also early 2000's kids as well. :o :o :o  It's amazing what 1-2 years apart in age can do to you.
So regarding the 2006 Class, not only are they the first mid 00s teens, but they're also technically the first 00s kids as well. :o :D Mind-blowing when you think about that, especially considering how their attitudes can be, as I've seen it here on the internet and have even seen it in my own family a little bit.
It also explains how they're the ELDEST ones I can relate to as close friends, as well. :o

Age 18 is the start of legal adulthood; it's not really a "teenage" year in the sociocultural sense. You might as well include age 19 then.

Ages 14-17 are the traditional teenage years because they directly correspond with high school.

Well, seniors can be 18 as well. I was after all. Also 14 years are either 8th grades OR HS freshman usually depending on the birthday.

Not everyone is 18 years old when they graduate high school, but everyone is at least 17 years old. Therefore, senior year is better associated with age 17.

No, not everyone is 14 years old the day they start high school, but everyone is 14 years old at some point during freshman year.

I was pretty much a 00s adolescent and there was a lot to enjoy. 8). R&B, non-snap hip-hop, non-emo rock. The PS2, NDS, Gamecube, and Xbox 360 (I didn't get a Wii and PS3 until much later.). Comfortable fashion. Some great movies and discovering classic youtube for the first time. Great times!

Well that's true and all; however, most people are 14 for 9th grade and 17 for 12th.

As for the bold, ArcticFox's span seem to be 11-13 for early. 14-18 for peak and 18-19 for late which is great; however, 18-19 is not generally considered the end of adolesence. That would be 16-17.

Like as an example, I would be 17 years and 9 months by my graduation day.

I will be about 2 weeks away from turning 18 when I grauduate on June 26th.

Well I was... I have no clue what you're cutoff is?! :o


What "cutoff?" Let's say someone was born in July of a given year. That person was still 17 years old when they graduated high school in May or June; they associate age 18 with post-HS life.

Kindergarten entrance age by state: http://ecs.force.com/mbdata/mbquestRT?rep=Kq1402

They all have it set at 5 years old. Therefore, age 5 is associated with kindergarten. If we extrapolate that:

Age 5 (kindergarten)

Age 6 (1st grade)

Age 7 (2nd grade)

...

Age 14 (9th grade)

Age 15 (10th grade)

Age 16 (11th grade)

Age 17 (12th grade)

Anyways, back to the teens discussion. The Late 2000s teens, due to my interaction with them(I went to HS with a couple of them) struck me as EASILY the most annoying of the bunch by far. This group just loved to brag about being in their peak childhoods during the late 90s.

I was pretty much a 00s adolescent and there was a lot to enjoy. 8) . R&B, non-snap hip-hop, non-emo rock. The PS2, NDS, Gamecube, and Xbox 360 (I didn't get a Wii and PS3 until much later.). Comfortable fashion. Some great movies and discovering classic youtube for the first time. Great times!
Well that's true and all; however, most people are 14 for 9th grade and 17 for 12th.

Cutoff dates aren't particularly relevant to this discussion. They also don't seem to be strictly enforced, either. There were plenty of kids in my graduating class who were born in late September, October, November, and December of 1991. There was even a girl born as late as February 1992 and a guy as early as June 1990.

The point I'm trying to make is that, generally speaking, one has to be 5 years old (or almost 5 years old) by the time they enter kindergarten.

You're an in awkward position since you were born in September of 1993 which is technically fall of 1993. But you graduated in 2011, which is regarded as the VERY last 00s teen class. But... If you lived here in MO you would have graduated in 2012, making you one of the first 10s teens. So I consider you a hybrid of both, late 00s and early 10s. Since you're peak was 2008-2011.

Wow that's strange,  Cause 18, 19 and 20 I still felt like an adolescent and was still treated like one. 21 was a big jump for me personally speaking.

Same here. For the time I've been in K-12, I have known people who were born early as January/February of a previous year along with folks born late as November/December of their respective graduation class.

That's because CA had a late cutoff of December, so it was common seeing fall born folks in their original class.

Well not me. I already felt like a adult before I even graduated high school. It's why I see the early 10s more as early adulthood than later adolescence.

2011 Class are fun bunch to quickly discuss, due to the fact that they may have graduated in 2011(which is technically the early 10s). But chronologically, they're mostly teens of the late 00s with that bit of early 10s influence since they were still in HS in late 2009, 2010 and 2011. Also here's where things get interesting. Not only are they the final 2000s teens, but the eldest ones in the class in particular are the final "90s kids'' as well. It was the beginning of the end of that era in my school when they left. When the 2012 class left and the 2016 class came in that was the start of a transitional period in my school.

I think teen culture in the '00s is better divided into halves than early/mid/late.

2000-2004ish: A&F, Hollister, AE, short hair on guys, no beards, shaved legs, Eminem, r&b, dial-up or early broadband adopter, pre-flip phones, homophobia, 6th gen consoles or PC

2004ish-early 2009: Emo/scene, skinny jeans, long hair on guys w/swoop, broadband, MySpace, RAZR phones, ringtone rap, early YouTube, increased LGBT acceptance, 7th gen consoles

What "cutoff?" Let's say someone was born in July of a given year. That person was still 17 years old when they graduated high school in May or June; they associate age 18 with post-HS life.

Kindergarten entrance age by state: http://ecs.force.com/mbdata/mbquestRT?rep=Kq1402

They all have it set at 5 years old. Therefore, age 5 is associated with kindergarten. If we extrapolate that:

Age 5 (kindergarten)

Age 6 (1st grade)

Age 7 (2nd grade)

...

Age 14 (9th grade)

Age 15 (10th grade)

Age 16 (11th grade)

Age 17 (12th grade)


Not everybody though, and it's not like people stay the same age for the whole school year. Here in Georgia kids must have turned 5 before September 1st in order to enter Kindergarten. I get that the majority of the people are 17 their senior year, but it's more like 60% of those are 17 for most of senior year and 40% of those are 18 for most of senior year, and you can't forget those who got held back a grade or started school late too. I just say Kindergarten is 5 & 6, 1st grade is 6 & 7, 2nd grade is 7 & 8, 3rd grade is 8 & 9, 4th grade is 9 & 10, junior year is 16 & 17, senior year is 17 & 18, etc.

IMO age 18 is the peak of someone's interest in mainstream pop culture which is senior year of high school and freshman year in college (subtract 10 years then age 8 is peak childhood). Age 14-22 is the peak of your interest in pop culture which are your high school and college years. Age 11-13 are your early years while age 23-25 are your late years.

1993 & 1994 are barely hybrids, but they obviously lean a lot more towards early 2000's. I consider 1993-2001 as the main 2000's kid group with 1992 and 2002 being hybrids, but if I had to pick between a 1992 or 2002 born being more of a 2000's kid, I'd obviously choose the 1992 born since they know the 2000's decade in its entirety and they were in 2nd grade when 2000 started, making them the first kids to spend the majority of their elementary school years in the 2000's opposed to the 90's. A 2002 born can only remember the late 2000's and they barely qualify since they were only in 1st grade when Obama came in office and the culture was changing into 2010's rapidly. A 2002 born either had an equal amount of childhood in the late 2000's/early 2010's or more in the early 2010's.

A 2002 born either had an equal amount of childhood in the late 2000's/early 2010's or more in the early 2010's.

All of this. So do you agree that the 2011 class are the last ones or the 2010 class?! :o

Same here. For the time I've been in K-12, I have known people who were born early as January/February of a previous year along with folks born late as November/December of their respective graduation class.
That's because CA had a late cutoff of December, so it was common seeing fall born folks in their original class.


That's a nearly 2-year difference. Crazy.

You too Eric! The 2010 class is the last one and even then they're extremely borderline. One thing all 90's kids have in common is that all of them graduated throughout the 2000's decade. 1992 born's graduated in 2010 which was a deacde when most 2000's kids graduated, but that makes sense because they're even hybrids at best. 1991 born's (Class of 2009) are the last REAL 90's kids, since they were 8 in 1999 and in 3rd grade from 1999-2000.

Your post is definitely accurate, but I will say that the 1991-94 folks all pretty much grew up the same way. All of us remember Pokemania like it was yesterday while we watched CN's Powerhouse and Nick's SA.

I know. This state is notorious for that. To put things in perspective, I knew a few December 1991 folks in the C/O 2011 (they began late and were held back) and I knew a December 1994 person in the class of 2012 (her Bday was literally one day before the cutoff which used to be Dec. 3rd.

I think teen culture in the '00s is better divided into halves than early/mid/late.

2000-2004ish: A&F, Hollister, AE, short hair on guys, no beards, shaved legs, Eminem, r&b, dial-up or early broadband adopter, pre-flip phones, homophobia, 6th gen consoles or PC

2004ish-early 2009: Emo/scene, skinny jeans, long hair on guys w/swoop, broadband, MySpace, RAZR phones, ringtone rap, early YouTube, increased LGBT acceptance, 7th gen consoles


It's more like:

1999-2003

2003-2006

2006-2010

Great piece you wrote there. But IMO the 2008 class used to strike me as the last LEGIT ones. Since they were 8 in 1998, which means they were at their all time peak during the last year before the 1999 shift.(Pokemon, Batman Beyond, Digimon, Cartoon Cartoon Fridays etc.) and were 5th graders during the 2000-2001 season. But overall you are right about the 2009 class.
And due to my interactions with them the 2011 class ALWAYS struck me as the VERY last ones due to them being the last 00s teens and seeing how the interacted with me and conducted themselves.

There was more acceptance of LGBT communities around the Silicon Valley (where I live) in the early 00's but you still heard stuff like "that's so gay" and other more insensitive jokes. My experience is a lot different than Chris' though. I remember you telling me once that it was so bad in your area that men were seen as "gay" if they wore sleeves that were shorter than elbow length. In my area, during the 80's, 90's and early 00's, baggy t shirts with elbow length sleeves were just a style; nobody made fun of you if you wore fitted attire with shorter sleeves. That's a harsh environment you had to put up with.

Not everybody though, and it's not like people stay the same age for the whole school year. Here in Georgia kids must have turned 5 before September 1st in order to enter Kindergarten. I get that the majority of the people are 17 their senior year, but it's more like 60% of those are 17 for most of senior year and 40% of those are 18 for most of senior year, and you can't forget those who got held back a grade or started school late too. I just say Kindergarten is 5 & 6, 1st grade is 6 & 7, 2nd grade is 7 & 8, 3rd grade is 8 & 9, 4th grade is 9 & 10, junior year is 16 & 17, senior year is 17 & 18, etc.


True, a lot of people are 18 years old when they graduated high school. But most just turned 18 years old and will associate that age with leaving high school and beginning their real lives. I personally felt the same at age 18 as I did ages 19-20. It wasn't until age 21 that I felt less like an adolescent and more like a young adult. You just turned 21 years old or are about to, yes? I'm curious to know if you feel any different.

To me, the golden age of Pokemon will always be 1998-2003. Pokemania may have been 1999-2001 but 1998-2003 was Pokemon's prime in everything (video games, TV show, cards). Even when Pokemon reruns were on CN in 2002 & 2003 I consider that part of its peak as well.

To me, my teenage years felt like they were winding down at age 17. Definitely a core teenage year, but certainly not peak (like ages 15-16) because you're already thinking about post-HS life.

Well, for me these 6 months have been a real interesting, but tough experience for me so far.
But It's been a more carfree, laid back and relaxed enviornment. I haven't felt that way in a looooong time. :) :) :) I can't wait till what 22 brings me this fall. :o

But yeah, I guess we will have to disagree. I can't even begin to describe how different I felt at age 18 knowing that the nightmare known as high school would soon be in the rear-view mirror for good and that I was about to get a brand new, clean slate of a start.

To me, my teenage years felt like they were winding down at age 17. Definitely a core teenage year, but certainly not peak (like ages 15-16) because you're already thinking about post-HS life.
I felt the same way. I was definitely exiting adolescence after 8 years of it when I was in my last year of high school.

My late teens and early 20's were some of the best times of my life but even in my 30's, I still try to enjoy and make the most out of every day I'm alive. I see a lot of people around my age becoming grumpier and jaded and I try not to allow that to happen to me. It's unfortunate to see.

I graduated when I was 17 and a half, so yeah, it felt more "young adult" than 14-16's pure adolescence. I don't attach much importance to my teenage years though, you won't hear me saying "rah rah late 2000s teen!!"  :-X 18-24 have been more defining for my youth years. ;D

Anyways, back to the teens discussion. The Late 2000s teens, due to my interaction with them(I went to HS with a couple of them) struck me as EASILY the most annoying of the bunch by far. This group just loved to brag about being in their peak childhoods during the late 90s.


Maybe it's because they were the ones who thought the 90s was the coolest decade ever, even though no one back in 2007-2009 ever cared for the late 90s.

Arctic Fox metnioned this in his 2010s teens video, so I figure I should share it in the 2000s thread.

Also, perhaps the biggest divider between early 2000s teens and mid 2000s teens BAR NONE is that early 2000s teens were in high school for either all or most of the early portion of the decade. Mid 2000's teens, on the other hand, were still children, being in middle school or even elementary school during the early 2000s. Not only are mid 2000's teens, 90's kids, but they're also early 2000's kids as well. :o :o :o  It's amazing what 1-2 years apart in age can do to you.
So regarding the 2006 Class, not only are they the first mid 00s teens, but they're also technically the first 00s kids as well. :o :D Mind-blowing when you think about that, especially considering how their attitudes can be, as I've seen it here on the internet and have even seen it in my own family a little bit.
It also explains how they're the ELDEST ones I can relate to as close friends, as well. :o


I never really saw much of a difference between the Class of 2005 and the Class of 2006, honestly. As I said, I've always felt that 1986-88 borns are all sort of "hybrid" early '00s and mid '00s teens.

To expand a bit further, 1988 babies turned 13 in 2001 and started high school in 2002-03, the last early '00s school year. They would've only still been a "child" during 2000, which was the last year of the Clinton administration and really no different than 1998 and 1999 from a cultural standpoint. They are also likely the last birth year to get into Nu Metal in a big way, as it was still quite popular when they were 13-14. 1988 is the last year to have the majority of their high school career (2002-03, 2003-04 and 2004-05 school years) before social media really took off, and while MySpace was popular in their senior year, they graduated before either Twitter or YouTube had a chance to really take off, and mostly experienced those things (along with Facebook) during their college years. If you feel that you can relate to 1988ers, then you should be able to relate decently to 1987ers, and even some 1986ers, as well.

To me, the Class of 2007, or those born in 1989, is where there is a larger change. They were the first group not to start high school in the early '00s, and had their senior year in 2006-07, which was the first school year in which MySpace, YouTube, flip-phones and iPods were all ubiquitous among teenagers. They are also the first to graduate from high school in the late '00s. I see 1989ers as the first people that are 100% mid '00s teens.

I have never understood why people do this.  It can also come across as very offensive to somebody who is struggling with their sexuality.  It seems to mostly happen in environments that are more homophobic, but not always.  Why is homosexuality such a laughing matter to so many straight people?

Well,  one factor is what NewYorkRaven said and another is just the fact that we aren't gay....so pretending in a silly way to be gay is just funny. I can definitely see how you can find it to be offensive.

Just to be clear, Class of 2006 is a mid 2000s class, as they spent 3 of their 4 high school years in the mid '00s. Hell, us Class of 2005ers are a partial mid '00s class too, since we spent half of our high school career in the mid '00s.

I think teen culture in the '00s is better divided into halves than early/mid/late.

2000-2004ish: A&F, Hollister, AE, short hair on guys, no beards, shaved legs, Eminem, r&b, dial-up or early broadband adopter, pre-flip phones, homophobia, 6th gen consoles or PC

2004ish-early 2009: Emo/scene, skinny jeans, long hair on guys w/swoop, broadband, MySpace, RAZR phones, ringtone rap, early YouTube, increased LGBT acceptance, 7th gen consoles

I'm going with you on this one. This is where the thirds system gets confusing and even frustrating. Honestly, the C/O 2000-04 had the same HS experience in some way while 2005-09 had their own and vice versa.

Just to be clear, Class of 2006 is a mid 2000s class, as they spent 3 of their 4 high school years in the mid '00s. Hell, us Class of 2005ers are a partial mid '00s class too, since we spent half of our high school career in the mid '00s. I was just saying that I think the Class of 2007 is the first class that are 100% mid '00s teens.

Yup you're correct my friend, that is indeed true they are indeed the peak of the mid teens! :)

I'm going with you on this one. This is where the thirds system gets confusing and even frustrating. Honestly, the C/O 2000-04 had the same HS experience in some way while 2005-09 had their own and vice versa.

Yeah I know its weird, but it is kinda, sorta accurate in a way. I wonder what Arctic Fox thinks of this?! :o

I never really saw much of a difference between the Class of 2005 and the Class of 2006, honestly. As I said, I've always felt that 1986-88 borns are all sort of "hybrid" early '00s and mid '00s teens.

To expand a bit further, 1988 babies turned 13 in 2001 and started high school in 2002-03, the last early '00s school year. They would've only still been a "child" during 2000, which was the last year of the Clinton administration and really no different than 1998 and 1999 from a cultural standpoint. They are also likely the last birth year to get into Nu Metal in a big way, as it was still quite popular when they were 13-14. 1988 is the last year to have the majority of their high school career (2002-03, 2003-04 and 2004-05 school years) before social media really took off, and while MySpace was popular in their senior year, they graduated before either Twitter or YouTube had a chance to really take off, and mostly experienced those things (along with Facebook) during their college years. If you feel that you can relate to 1988ers, then you should be able to relate decently to 1987ers, and even some 1986ers, as well.

To me, the Class of 2007, or those born in 1989, is where there is a larger change. They were the first group not to start high school in the early '00s, and had their senior year in 2006-07, which was the first school year in which MySpace, YouTube, flip-phones and iPods were all ubiquitous among teenagers. They are also the first to graduate from high school in the late '00s. I see 1989ers as the first people that are 100% mid '00s teens.


I mostly agree with your assessment; 1986-88ers are the only pure 90s "kids" in the most literal sense. But even 88ers had some experiences more characteristic of 1989-90ers. Being in middle school on 9/11 is an obvious one, as well as still being an elementary schooler during the start of the Y2K era (1998-99 school year). People also seem to underestimate the shift that occurred from 2005-06... Wikipedia/YouTube/Myspace as well as the very first signs of the impending financial crisis. To me, the 2004-05 school year was the absolute zenith of the skater/punk/tomboy culture that marked 2002-05.

Overall, 1988 is best grouped with 1986/1987, but with some minor caveats. As a 91er, I feel the same dynamic between 1991 and 1989/1990.

Eh, I disagree.

The class of 2000, born in 1982, had a completely different experience than those born four years later. I don't think you can compare HS in the late 90s to high school in the early 00s. Even the class of 2001, born in 1983, graduated before 9/11.

To a greater point, I've always seen 86ers as the first of a newer brand of Millennials, quite distinct from those born in 1984 and even 1985, much less 1982 and 1983. I have cousins born in 1983 and 1986... two totally different vibes.

Class experience should be grouped based on the whole, not just the graduation date. Class of 2000 had high school in the late 90s, not the 2000s as we know it at all. Most of it was pre-Columbine and all of it was in the Clinton era. They graduated before the Bush presidency and before 9/11. They're solidly later 90s teens and in some ways have more in common with Gen X than the rest of the Millennial generation. They don't have as much in common with class of 2004, where most of their high school experience was in the post 9/11 era.

Class of 2005 may have graduated in 05 but they were the last class where non-emo rock was popular and the last class where it was before social media took over everything. Social media changed so many things and many people don't seem to get it. If you compare it to the class of 2009, who had social media the whole time in high school, it's a very different thing.

I really feel as if 1982 should be X/Y cusp rather than just Y. To me, they are the last possible people to be cusps, and it is mostly for the reasons you posted.

Yup that's also another reason why Class of 2000 and Class of 2001 are the final 90s teens.

Another quote from boy Arctic... I'll apply it to the 00s teens this time tho.
"Take note, however, that just because a teen fad took place in a certain chronological era doesn't mean that it belongs strictly to those teens. You have to remember that half of Early 2000's teens spent some of their high school years in the mid 2000s as well. Class of 2004 and 2005 were both in high school for a decent part of the mid 2000's. Class of 2006 spent their freshman year in the early 2000's. Try to understand that an early 2010's teen's experience of the mid 2000's will be quite different from that of a mid 2000's teen, and vice versa."

What are the biggest differences you've noticed?


The biggest difference is simply their respective relationships with the 90s. I think 1983ers are the absolute last bunch to have any sort of Xennial influences, which can be attributed to the fact that their young childhoods were centered around the late 80s and early 90s (e.g. 1988-1992) and their early adolescence the early-mid 90s (e.g. 1992-1995). Accordingly, they were teenagers exclusively in the late 90s and pre-9/11 millennium; they are thoroughly children of the 20th century.

None of those characteristics apply to 1986ers. Let's look at their 'milestone' age years:

Age 13 in 1999
Age 18 in 2004
Age 21 in 2007
Age 30 in 2016

Those ages vis-à-vis those particular years are exemplary of a 100% bona fide Millennial experience.

Good points. Perhaps my views on the 2005-06 school year vs. the 2006-07 school year are blurred a bit because I come from a very rural area. Around here, things like cell phones, iPods, YouTube, MySpace and all of that were slower to take off, and hadn't really become fully adopted yet in 2005-06. Heck, a lot of folks (including me) actually still had dial-up internet until 2006. The fact that most of that stuff didn't really become universal until 2006-07 might skew my view on things a bit, compared to if I'd gone to school in a larger city.

For what it's worth, to me, you 1991ers are the last of the true "peak" Gen Y people. Starting high school in 2005-06, the last fully mid '00s school year, and beginning your senior year in 2008-09 with Bush still in office and with early '10s culture not having begun to fully emerge yet is the key. My brother was born in 1991, and even though he's four years younger than me, we basically grew up with the same stuff. There is a bit of a difference when it comes to childhood (he's more of a late '90s/early '00s kid, whereas I'm more of a mid-to-late '90s kid), but our adolescent experiences in terms of what pop culture we liked as teens lines up almost exactly perfect. You guys are the youngest in my individual "tribe" that I feel I can relate the best to, which is roughly 1983-1991.

Yeah, I agree with that, lol. Personally to me, really the only notable difference us (the Class of 2017) and the Class of 2016 is that most members of the Class of 2016 (born late 1997 until mid 1998) could vote legally in the 2016 Presidential Election while most of us in the Class of 2017 (born late 1998 until mid 1999) couldn't.

At my school I actually enjoyed Class of 2016 better than 2015 because I got along with more people in the 2016 class than 2015  ;D

The 2011 federal election was my first election. I voted NDP (social democratic party), but the country went Conservative. Despite that, I was very happy that the NDP got a record 30% of the vote. I was part of the movement, yo!  :D

The first election I voted in were the 2006 midterm elections. That was so long ago that my precinct was still using paper ballots. They had switched over to electronic by 2008, though.

Interesting story. Just a few days before I voted from the first time, George W. Bush actually came to the town I live in to give a speech for the Governor of Georgia, who was running for re-election at the time. He was so unpopular at the time that Georgia was one of the few states Bush could still come to to campaign. I went out to the fairgrounds where he spoke and hung out with some of the anti-war protesters that were there holding up signs against the Iraq War. It was an interesting time.

Franklin Roosevelt died in Warm Springs, Georgia, which is less than 2 hours from where I live, Jimmy Carter is from Plains, Georgia, which is less than 10 miles from where I was born, and in 1996 Bill Clinton gave a speech in Macon, Georgia on the same day I was visiting that city with my parents and his motorcade passed right in front of our car.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever seen any Presidents before?

My mom and my (other) brother went to Jack Layton's (he was like our Bernie Sanders) campaign launch in 2008. I didn't care about him back then, but now I'm super jelly about it. At least I got to vote for him in 2011, unlike my brother.  :-X

Other than that, I've sent a handwritten letter to Justin Trudeau about electoral reform. Hopefully he replies! But most likely I'll be getting a reply from my Liberal MP instead.

Eh, I disagree.

The class of 2000, born in 1982, had a completely different experience than those born four years later. I don't think you can compare HS in the late 90s to high school in the early 00s. Even the class of 2001, born in 1983, graduated before 9/11.

To a greater point, I've always seen 86ers as the first of a newer brand of Millennials, quite distinct from those born in 1984 and even 1985, much less 1982 and 1983. I have cousins born in 1983 and 1986... two totally different vibes.

Yeah, he'll most likely care about his Twitter than electronic mall of all things. Even for a 70 year old, it doesn't really seem necessary to look up random people's emails that they sent from the server.

I don't think anyone who doesn't support him does.

Well, it's always your choice. You can always do it if you want to.

This post is out of character for you. Are you okay? :o Looks like a post I'd make.  :-X


I just can't STAND this bs analyzing one year to another it's driving me nuts. There's NO difference between people who are close in age will you people just STFU about this crap already. For years and year it's the same thing god will it ever END. Also I have other problems lately so no I'm not really ok and I'll just leave it at that.

Honestly, it's not my fault for doing this. I feel your pain since all I wanted to do is just talk about the 2000s in a POSITIVE WAY! Every site that I go to basically takes sh*t about the decade, even though I only cherished it because I feel widely nostalgic for it.

I love the 2000s too, but this whole crap that someone born whatever year is different from someone a couple years apart either way, it is complete BS. NOBODY THAT'S CLOSE IN AGE IS NOTICEABLY ANY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER PERIOD! How many times does that have to be repeated.

Honestly, I kinda see decades in terms of pop culture, events, etc. If it was about the 2000s in a cultural perspective, then it might be in two halves for me. 2000-early 2007 and mid 2007-2009 respectively. But it was a political perspective, it would mostly be 2001-2009. I do see it a bit with the early, mid, and late parts, but that stuff isn't really important.

Nicely done.

Although only one opinion, it's based on my personal experience of having a crap ton of older siblings/cousins born in: 1972, 1975, 1976, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1983, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, and 1989. I can see where the cultural transitions are, but apparently you think that my view is way too nuanced. LOL.

I kind of just see each year as a bit of it's own thing and there aren't "clear" boundaries between early, mid, late. That is subjective. The only clear boundaries really between two halves 2000-2004 and 2005-2009, though it doesn't really mean anything either except it's the two halves of the 2000-2009 period. The "middle" of something is more of a subjective idea. You could say 2001-2008 is the "middle" of the '00s if you wanted and really someone can't say you're wrong because it is in the middle.

I kinda see it that way as well. Most likely because of my personal experiences. Although I would mostly glue 2000 and 2001 with 2002 because they had similar influences on me. Aside from that, every year probably had a different aspect to me (like you said it). But it mostly came from the pop culture, where I could discover something in a fascinating way since I was only a kid back then.

I think reading all the over-analyzation just drives me insane sometimes. I do have some mental issues so I am prone to get very angry at times and then be fine a few minutes later. I may be bipolar I really don't know. There's also personal issues that are on my mind which is why I flipped out before. Also I've seen this kind of stuff for so many years now on here and being exposed to it for that long causes issues. I guess it's why I try to avoid to come here much anymore but sometimes I can't help it.

I can agree with you that these debates can get pretty tired and pointless very quickly, especially when they involve assigning labels. I also agree that people born just a few years apart are generally not that different from another, but that goes without saying. Clearly many people here are interested in further, detailed analysis. Overall, I think these discussions are fun because of the nostalgia aspect and seeing how closely our shared memories and experiences line up.

Also, although you haven't offered an apology, I'm not looking for one either and hold no resentment toward you.

At my school I actually enjoyed Class of 2016 better than 2015 because I got along with more people in the 2016 class than 2015  ;D

However, pop culturally and when it came to interests I noticed a huge attitude change between 2015 and 2016.

Yup me too, they were more full of life and less "hard working and serious."
The younger students in the 2016 class also struck me more like younger siblings than 2015 class as well. :o

It's Trump's fault, he's encouraged them to be this way.

Wouldn't blame it on Trump per say, since they're mostly mid 10s teens, but yeah the way they conduct themselves at their colleges, I think that Trump definitely plays a role in that.

It's funny you say that because while I never went to HS with the class of 2015, I very much get that vibe from the 1997-borns I know and have met. Weird.

The 1994-borns that I've met also seem pretty serious.

"What's the difference between the Class of 2015 and Class of 2017?"

Simple...
2015 Class were early 10s teens with a mix of mid, they're also mostly mid 00s kids with a mix of early. They're also the final early 10s teens. Oh and they "came of age" in the MID PART of the decade.
2017 Class are the heart of the mid 10s teens, they also maybe the quintessential 10s teens.  They also had their childhood experience during the mid to late 00s. They're "coming of age" right now while this school year has been transitioning to a a late 10s atmosphere.
That's what I came up with... :-\\

You guys have gotten off-topic analyzing the minuscule differences between the graduating classes of high school, you're making my head hurt.

This thread is supposed to be about 00s teen memories.

Yeah, we know, but the conversation was pretty fun tho. ;D ;)

YOU ARE A F***ING IDIOT.  >:(

I was born in '85, my classmates and friends were either '85 or '86 and there was NO distinction between those two birth years other than individual personality traits.  >:(


I just can't STAND this bs analyzing one year to another it's driving me nuts. There's NO difference between people who are close in age will you people just STFU about this crap already. For years and year it's the same thing god will it ever END. Also I have other problems lately so no I'm not really ok and I'll just leave it at that.

I know. It gets old. Classmates who graduate this year or that year aren't all the same age. The older ones could be born a previous year, usually latter half, and the younger ones the year after that. I don't think there's even enough difference between different graduating years close enough together to analyze. I'm sorry, but I can't find significant differences between small age gaps.

Nice updated avatar. I forgot to discuss the new season with you since you came back on this site. It's been lit af! The 2nd episode was my favorite with the Daughters of Aku mixed with the amazing background music (sorry for getting off topic).


The second and third episodes have been my favorites from the fifth season.

I love the 2000s too, but this whole crap that someone born whatever year is different from someone a couple years apart either way, it is complete BS. NOBODY THAT'S CLOSE IN AGE IS NOTICEABLY ANY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER PERIOD! How many times does that have to be repeated. This idiot was saying he sees "different vibe" between a couple of 30 something guys that are a mere 3 years apart, get real.  ::) Nobody in the normal world sees this different vibe, and this poster is indeed an idiot. Also who cares what's the early, mid and late of a decade? What's the freaking difference?


Oooooh  :o I love your attitude Brian, and I completely agree with you on the age thing. Sometimes I have to watch my bad habits as well when I get in these discussions. I only post on whatever thread I see and enjoy myself on here. Whenever I create threads here once in a while it's gonna be interesting for everybody to chat. (not these type of threads I never create those)

I was born in '87 and have cousins born in '85 and '89 among others and I am close to both of them and notice zero different vibe when talking to either. Another cousin was born in '83 and his wife was born in '86, I don't notice any difference between them. The whole "is there a difference between mid '80s and late '80s babies?" "what is the difference between someone born in 1985 and 1990?" types of posts and discussion really need to end NOW. Those along with the "when does such and such generation begin and end and "what is the early, core and late part of whatever generation?" need to go in the trash heap where they belong.

Get on the users who keep creating those same type of threads over and over again. Not the ones who are in the discussion although I agree we should try to avoid the discussions as well. It's best to ignore the threads altogether and they'll stop, but if we keep feeding onto them then they'll keep making them over and over again. I would hate to report on certain users to the moderators but I don't want to get to that point myself if it gets out of hand. There's only one time I had to report to the moderators (I think we all remember that user last year).

All our belongings in shopping carts
It's goodbye
But we got one more night
Let's get drunk and ride around
And make peace with an empty town
We can make it right

Throw it away
Forget yesterday
We'll make the great escape
We won't hear a word they say
They don't know us anyway
Watch it burn
Let it die
Cause we are finally free tonight

Frankly, I think he's a little jealous that he was born in 1982 and was already out of high school by the time the mid '00s really cranked up. Just think, if he'd been born five or six years later, he could've been in his pop cultural prime during the Hot Topic era. 8)

What?! On this board? This is one of the least toxic boards I've been on. I dunno why you'd support talking about dumber topics, anyway. It's better to take on more intellectual discussions about challenging topics that make you think rather than talk about the same stupid emotionally biased discussions about when "generrashun xqwerty" ended which often are more rooted in either the posters need to feel like a "proper" human by being in the "more superior generation than the next one" or by some weird need for reassurance by shoving their views in everyone's face by posting long charts detailing birth dates and god knows what else.

Not this board. I mean other ones, and the superiority complex applies to everything, not just generations. For example:

"Men are better than women. They are inferior"

"Asians are better than whites in English. We're smarter and they're dumb"

Those are pretty much superior.

I agree though that intellectual discussions are much better and we have had some than just anything about generations.

What do other boards have to do with this? I don't know any prominent members on this board who believe totally extremist absolute views like you've shown above. When it comes to more serious discussions, most people here seem to hold more moderate views and, if not that, than are at least open minded and accepting. Repeating the same discussions about generations over and over again in circles is dumb and really does nothing for the site's community. What's been said in recent times on this board is stuff that's already been tired out ages ago. It's the same thing over and over were you guys will assert yourselves as the "fact bringers" and have a pissing contest over who has the "most facts" about something that's so subjective like generations. Most of the arguments are pure conjecture, too. "1991 is different than 1993 because I know some people and they act different and didn't grow up with pokemon", "1987 is when millennials turned into turds because in 2007 every last one of them liked emo", "kid culture in 2001 was this and this which is something 1995 borns experienced at the mall when we still shopped there before Nickelodeon took down their bumpers and brought us into the Z generation which 1999 borns didn't experience." Not only are the vapid arguments filled with conjecture and no real substance, the debates are full of generational boundaries with the most convoluted logic that  try to pin it down to the absolute millisecond just to be anal retentive. Bringing up what you believe "is much worse" doesn't solve the problem, either. You're promoting complacency for no reason at all.

What do other boards have to do with this? I don't know any prominent members on this board who believe totally extremist absolute views like you've shown above. When it comes to more serious discussions, most people here seem to hold more moderate views and, if not that, than are at least open minded and accepting. Repeating the same discussions about generations over and over again in circles is dumb and really does nothing for the site's community. What's been said in recent times on this board is stuff that's already been tired out ages ago. It's the same thing over and over were you guys will assert yourselves as the "fact bringers" and have a pissing contest over who has the "most facts" about something that's so subjective like generations. Most of the arguments are pure conjecture, too. "1991 is different than 1993 because I know some people and they act different and didn't grow up with pokemon", "1987 is when millennials turned into turds because in 2007 every last one of them liked emo", "kid culture in 2001 was this and this which is something 1995 borns experienced at the mall when we still shopped there before Nickelodeon took down their bumpers and brought us into the Z generation which 1999 borns didn't experience."

Well you thought I said that those types of discussions were on this board, but I said no. That's why the other boards were mentioned. OTT, I agree that these topics can get tiring and we all should move on, but that's difficult to do. Some people here have an interest in those subjects while others don't.

Those quoted statements though are the worst I've seen here, and on other sites. They're the reason why arguments break out quickly.

I said that people should have more discussions about other topics that don't involve generations. It's really not that difficult if you have a wide variety of interests. There's no excuse. Honeslty, you're one-dimensional and can't talk about anything else but "generation y and the closing down of malls in late 2006/2008" then you (not you-you, just in general, so you don't misinterpret) really need to go outside and get another hobby.

Arguments are a part of life. We shouldn't avoid things just because they might get ugly. If they do head in that direction, then one should learn how to deal with those situations tactfully.

I was born in '85, my classmates and friends were either '85 or '86 and there was NO distinction between those two birth years other than individual personality traits.  >:(
I know. It gets old. Classmates who graduate this year or that year aren't all the same age. The older ones could be born a previous year, usually latter half, and the younger ones the year after that. I don't think there's even enough difference between different graduating years close enough together to analyze. I'm sorry, but I can't find significant differences between small age gaps.

I was born in '87 and have cousins born in '85 and '89 among others and I am close to both of them and notice zero different vibe when talking to either. Another cousin was born in '83 and his wife was born in '86, I don't notice any difference between them. The whole "is there a difference between mid '80s and late '80s babies?" "what is the difference between someone born in 1985 and 1990?" types of posts and discussion really need to end NOW. Those along with the "when does such and such generation begin and end and "what is the early, core and late part of whatever generation?" need to go in the trash heap where they belong.


Or, instead of lashing out at others and dictating what people should and shouldn't discuss (clearly there's been an interest in these topics for like the last 10 years; it's not like it just appeared out of the blue), you could avoid these threads altogether.

And based on your brash reactions, it seems like you're interpreting "differences" to mean "world's apart." There's a bit of a straw man element to your diatribe.

Wait a minute, I thought you were the one who first introduced the "post-1987 Millennials suck" theory? ???


You forgot the "pansy" part.

Once again, that was started by the Early 90s Guy.

Machinehead: How do you think being the last class to graduate without social media saturation affected you and others in class of 05? I notice a gulf between 1987 and 1989 born Millennials.


There's obviously some slight differences, but I wouldn't think of it as a gulf. MySpace was already having some slight impact during the 2004-05 school year, though around here it didn't really take off in a big way until the start of the 2006-07 school year.

There is a slight divide between those that experienced a majority of the first "MySpace Wave" of social media saturation in college (1984-1988) and those who experienced a majority of it in high school (1989-1993ish), but I don't think it's that big of a gap. After all, social media played a large role our lives for all of us born 1984-1993 when we were still relatively young (14-22).

Yup. EARLY social media played a big role in all of you 00s teens young lives!
