Subject: 00's teen

Written By: Setemstraight on 06/12/17 at 11:02 am

For those born in 85 & 86 and 93 & 94 who are hybrid 90's 00's and 00's 10's teens, do you concider yourself more 00's teens as you spent most of your teens in the 00's?

00s. I was basically an adult by the time this decade started.

As a '93er, I'd be both a late 2000s and early 2010s teen. I identify more strongly with the latter, since that's when I had more fun.

But if we're talking about decades overall, I'd go with the 2000s. I used to say I was a 2010s teen, but now that we're in 2017 it's becoming increasingly obvious that I was only a teen in the very very early portion of the decade. The 2010s are my young adult decade. I got my first full time job in late 2010, got to vote on elections in May 2011 and October 2011 and I was legal to drink by 2012, and all those years are already starting to show their age a bit. It's all starting to feel like a while ago. ;D

So yeah, if you asked me in 2014, I would have said I was a 2010s teen, but now that we're in 2017 it's become obvious to me that I wasn't a teen for all that long in the 2010s.  :-X

In the 2000s I was a teen from 2006-2009. Although 2006/early 2007 is a bit muddy: my 13/14 year old self might be offended at me saying this, but I still felt like a bit of a kid then. At the same time, I was very familiar with teen culture in 2005 and late 2004, so that would be more than half the decade.

Instead of identifying with one decade, I think it's simple if I kept it at "late 2000s/early 2010s" teen ;D

I'm a 00s teen. I was a teenager in the 2000s from 03, then became 20 not to long after 09.

Its almost funny how my teen life just snuck pass its expiration date and caught a glimpse of 2010.

Born in 96' and from a mathematical standpoint I was pretty squarely a 2010's teen being 14-19 from 2010-2015, and only 13 in 2009. However, from a cultural standpoint my teenaged years were more of a transitional period between the 2000's & 2010's, aka the Electropop era from roughly 2008-2012/2013. Basically when pop culture wasn't necessarily core 2000's nor 2010's.

This is becoming more evident from a 2017 perspective as many of the current trends popular with teens today like 'Stories' on Snapchat & Instagram, apps like Musically, 8th generation video game consoles, terms like 'On Fleek', 'Fam', 'Lit', among others didn't exist for much of my teenaged years, especially during high school. My peak teenaged year was 2012, and that year is starting to look more and more dated as the years have gone by.

Well, I know several people born 1986, and none of them would consider themselves '90s teens. 1985 is pushing it a little more, but I'm sure most folks that age would still think of themselves as '00s teens generally speaking.

1993ers are right there on that line of being '00s teens. Most 1993ers had their high school years from 2007 to 2011, so even though the core '00s were almost over by their freshman year, they still had almost all of their high school career during the '00s. Starting college during the early '10s makes you more of a '10s young adult to me. Same goes for 1994. The last to start college during the early '10s, and the last to have at least half of their high school career during the '00s.

'00s.  The core of my teen years were in the early 2000s.  Though I turned 13 in 1998, I was never too immersed in teen culture during the '90s.

Good point I guess I was looking at things more from a cultural perspective rather than a mathematical perspective.

For instance I'm sure if you were to ask most 85-86 borns if they identified as either 90's or 00's teens, most would say 00's. However, their teenaged experience wasn't really quintessential 2000's. Their teen years peaked in 2001-2002 before quintessential 2000's teenaged trends emerged like Social media (MySpace), Crunk, Emo, etc.

I think those born around during the 1988-1990 area had the most stereotypical 2000's teen experience.

85ers do consider themselves 00's teens because the were. That not even a considered a push. They were only teens for two years in the 90s and five years in the 00s.

No I was talking about those who spent MOST of their teens in the 00's, 93ers and 94ers being the last who spent more than two years of their teens in the 00's.

If anything my real mistake is that I should have started with those born in 83 and 84.

From a literal standpoint, those born in 85-86 are more 00's teens than 90's teens. But their teens from a cultural perspective really weren't 90's or 00's, it was more 'Millennium' Era, aka 1998-2002/3. By the time the core 2000's came around, aka the era of Myspace, crunk rap, Emo music, early YouTube, etc. they were already 18/19 years old, past their core high school years.

Same! I miss that time period.

I think that in the future, those of us who are late Millennials/early Gen Zers will view that time period with fondness, in the same way that  the "Oregon Trail Generation"(late 70s/early 80s borns) view 1997-Mid 2001. A time period distinct from what came immediately before or after, where pop culture took a slight break from grimness and over saturation of politics, and delivered a dreamlike, cheesy experience.

Good point. Although I don't think those born in the late 70's/early 80's would be that nostalgic of 97-01', that'd be more Millennials. Most Late 70's babies get nostalgic of the mid 90's, or roughly the 1993-1997 era. If your stereotypical Late 60's/Early 70's born was someone similar to the cast of F*R*I*E*N*D*S, then your stereotypical person born in the Late 70's/Early 80's was someone similar to the cast of Boy Meets World.

Really? A lot of the Oregon Trail generation people I've talked to say they loved the "Y2K Era", because that was the time they had graduated college, America felt like it was on top of the world, the economy was booming so they could get a good job easily, and the Internet was a great tool to use but it hadn't overpowered our lives yet with social media.

The MySpace, crunk rap, emo era carried over into people's early twenties too, an age where you're certainly still into all that, or at least familiar with what's what. I was 19 when MySpace became all the rage and not too old to hop on that bandwagon when I turned 20. I turned teenager in the late nineties, but it's not enough to claim that decade seeing how it was jr. high and right on the end of the nineties. The peak of my teenage years by number was not the peak of my teenage years by personal life standards.

I've always considered myself a 2005-2008 teen... half mid 00s, half late 00s. Basically the era of emo music and primitive social media.

I don't consider myself a 10s teen even though I was technically 19 years old in 2010. Heck, I don't even think that age 18 should count either because that's the start of legal adulthood. Ages 18-19 are more aligned with age 20, as far as I'm concerned.

Well at least there was variety in all of pop culture. For example, if one despised snap rap,  he or she can listen to rock (not emo rock) and would not be out of luck. Today that's not the case. If you don't like the current music,  you're f*cked.

I agree. Once you turn 18, you're simply a young adult, in my opinion. Even though you could argue that ages 18-19 are still adolescence, as they are often the final years of puberty for males and they are "teen" years, I think the fact that you can legally drink, get married, play on poker machines and get trialed as an adult is enough to consider someone who is ages 18-19 as solely a young adult and not an adolescent.

For instance, I turned 18 exactly three months ago (13th March). I honestly wouldn't consider myself a Late 2010s teen, especially considering the fact that I will be of legal age for all of the Late 2010s, with the exception of two and half months (January- mid March 2017)

Technically we could be considered Early 2010s teens, because we were 11-14 during that period of time.

I've always considered myself a 2005-2008 teen... half mid 00s, half late 00s. Basically the era of emo music and primitive social media.

I don't consider myself a 10s teen even though I was technically 19 years old in 2010. Heck, I don't even think that age 18 should count either because that's the start of legal adulthood. Ages 18-19 are more aligned with age 20, as far as I'm concerned.

You were on the end of your teens the first year of this decade, so no it wouldn't make sense to claim the 10's as your teen years just like the little bit of the late 90's I spent in my early teens isn't enough to claim it. If you spent the majority of your teens in the 2000's, then you were 2000's teen. 18 and 19 yes you're legally an adult, but also the last years of being a teenager too and it still counts. There tends to be overlap with the early 20's for reasons, but we're only talking eras spent being a certain age in.

Even with that, I didn't enjoy being 12 and 13. I had to go through my roughest years at school, while dealing with several kids who couldn't interact with most people. Not to mention that I felt really sick at my 12th birthday, to the point where my dad had to pick me up from school after a few hours.

Sorry to hear that. :( Age 13 was pretty tough for me as well. I started High School two months before I turned 13, however my first year of High School was quite horrible overall. To top it all off, my Nanna (my Mum's mum) passed away that October and two weeks later, my Uncle found out that he had a brain tumour. So I can definitely relate to not enjoying being age 13!

The MySpace, crunk rap, emo era carried over into people's early twenties too, an age where you're certainly still into all that, or at least familiar with what's what. I was 19 when MySpace became all the rage and not too old to hop on that bandwagon when I turned 20. I turned teenager in the late nineties, but it's not enough to claim that decade seeing how it was jr. high and right on the end of the nineties. The peak of my teenage years by number was not the peak of my teenage years by personal life standards.

Exactly. I think a lot people forget that your early 20s, especially in the last 20 years or so, has become a period extended adolescents. In 2005 a 20 y/o and 15y/o wasn't vastly that much different. Only difference is the 20 y/o was considered an adult legally, in college, and maybe a little more mental growth then the 15y/o. Other then that they were both still emersed in the pop culture of the time.

They throw you into legal adulthood and you maybe out of school, but your still an adolescent. Mental and physical changes are still occurring. 13 to 19 all count.

From a literal standpoint, those born in 85-86 are more 00's teens than 90's teens. But their teens from a cultural perspective really weren't 90's or 00's, it was more 'Millennium' Era, aka 1998-2002/3. By the time the core 2000's came around, aka the era of Myspace, crunk rap, Emo music, early YouTube, etc. they were already 18/19 years old, past their core high school years.


I assume the similar for 95-96. Their teen years were from 2008-2012/13 (ages 13-18) making them more of a late 00s/early 10s hybrid. By the time 2013 came along (which some say is when a slight shift in 10's culture happened) their core high school years were already over.  Being born in 95-96 is always a crazy thing to me since that means that you were a  kid in the early 00s (7-8 by 2003), preteen in the mid 00s (10-11 by 2006), and a teen in the late 00s (13-14 by 2009). As well as being in elementary, middle, and high school all in one decade.

Strange indeed.

Well at least there was variety in all of pop culture. For example, if one despised snap rap,  he or she can listen to rock (not emo rock) and would not be out of luck. Today that's not the case. If you don't like the current music,  you're f*cked.

I agree. Once you turn 18, you're simply a young adult, in my opinion. Even though you could argue that ages 18-19 are still adolescence, as they are often the final years of puberty for males and they are "teen" years, I think the fact that you can legally drink, get married, play on poker machines and get trialed as an adult is enough to consider someone who is ages 18-19 as solely a young adult and not an adolescent.

Not in the USA, our legal drinking age is 21. So I can't legally drink until my 21st birthday which is July 13, 2020 (3 years and a month from now).

I would have to wait until next year to do that because the legal drinking age in most of Canada is 19. Also, I don't have the money to go to Canada or Mexico in the next few years. Another thing is that I'm not a big fan of drinking anyways.....I'll have a drink here and there but I'm not going to be a regular drinker of alcohol.

I am thinking of saving up money to go to Las Vegas in 2020. It will either be for my birthday or after my 21st birthday.

Good point I guess I was looking at things more from a cultural perspective rather than a mathematical perspective.

For instance I'm sure if you were to ask most 85-86 borns if they identified as either 90's or 00's teens, most would say 00's. However, their teenaged experience wasn't really quintessential 2000's. Their teen years peaked in 2001-2002 before quintessential 2000's teenaged trends emerged like Social media (MySpace), Crunk, Emo, etc.

I think those born around during the 1988-1990 area had the most stereotypical 2000's teen experience.


Yeah, I get what you mean. You guys born 1996 only turned 13 sometime during 2009, but your preteen years where you first start following pop culture and musical trends were 2007 and 2008, so you guys are certainly knowledgeable about '00s culture. 1995ers also started high school during the '00s just barely, so that's worth nothing as well.

Honestly, I used to think that 1987 and 1988 were the ultimate '00s teens, but now I'm starting to reassess that view. The year that I started to pay attention to pop culture noticeably was 1997, and I started buying my first CD's the next year during 1998, so the Y2K era was a huge part of my adolescent years. Also, we had already started college by the time that social media really took off, which wasn't until 2006. Now I'm starting to think that while 1987ers and 1988ers are still peak '00s teens, that the ultimate peak '00s teens are probably 1990ers, who mostly had their high school years from 2004 to 2008, which was largely the height of classic '00s culture.

Great description. My later teens years came during the first era and that pretty much describes that era perfectly.

Here's the way I would describe my early teen years.

The Early '00s: Late 2001 to Mid 2003. This era was defined by a massive patriotic wave during the post 9/11 days that saw George W. Bush with a 80% approval rating while starting two wars. There was a feeling of worry over when the next move by Al Qaeda would occur. The PlayStation 2 was the dominant console of this era, but 5th gen consoles like the PS1 and N64 were still relevant. Brick cell phones were still mostly the order of the day, with very few kids actually owning them. MP3 players were still a luxury item, with CD's still being the dominant way to listen to music. These were the last days when CRT televisions still clearly ruled HDTV's, and VHS was still competitive against DVD. Music was still dominated by Y2K era genres, but many of them were starting to fade popularity wise. The most popular TV shows of this era were American Idol, Survivor, The Sopranos and CSI. Top movies were Spider Man, The Lord of the Rings, and Old School.

The Mid '00s: Late 2003 to Mid 2005. Politically, this era was dominated by the debate over the Iraq War, and the slow erosion of George W. Bush's popularity. The divisive 2004 election was the centerpiece of this era. The PlayStation 2 was still the dominant console, but folks were beginning to look to the 7th gen. Xbox Live started becoming big, but multiplayer and LAN parties were still bigger than online gaming. DVD overtook VHS, but VCR's were still popular items. Cell phones first start becoming affordable enough for teens to buy them. MP3 players become more popular, but have still yet to pass CD's. HDTV's are becoming more popular, but are still quite expensive. Popular shows during this era were American Idol, The Apprentice and Survivor. Popular movies were Napoleon Dynamite, Spider Man 2 and Mean Girls.

Good points! Not only that, but those born in 1990 also turned 16 in 2006, arguably the height of 2000's Youth Culture. Since 16 is the mathematical and (arguably) cultural peak in one's youth period (ages 9-24, ages 13-19 being the core years), let alone one's teens years, it would make sense that whenever you turned 16 is a relatively good metric on what cultural era you identify with.

Someone born in 1990 turned 16 in 2006 during the Iraq War backlash, the peak of the Housing Bubble, tail end of 6th generation Gaming/Start of 7th generation, the iPod entering its peak in popularity, crunk, snap, Emo, Punk Rock, & other 2000's music genres at their peak in popularity, TV shows like Laguna Beach and The O.C at their height, Myspace at its height and YouTube starting to get big, etc. These are all quintessentially 2000's things and those born in the 1989-1991 time frame were at the center of that.

I picked late 2005 because that's when the iPod became ubiquitous, and it was also around the time MySpace got popular, and YouTube got off the ground (although not a huge part of daily life yet). You do have a point though. Late 2005 would have more in common with late 2004 or even late 2003 than early 2009. But every year has its differences with the next, so I just picked whatever cutoff sounded the cleanest.  ;D

Great description. My later teens years came during the first era and that pretty much describes that era perfectly.

Here's the way I would describe my early teen years.

The Early '00s: Late 2001 to Mid 2003. This era was defined by a massive patriotic wave during the post 9/11 days that saw George W. Bush with a 80% approval rating while starting two wars. There was a feeling of worry over when the next move by Al Qaeda would occur. The PlayStation 2 was the dominant console of this era, but 5th gen consoles like the PS1 and N64 were still relevant. Brick cell phones were still mostly the order of the day, with very few kids actually owning them. MP3 players were still a luxury item, with CD's still being the dominant way to listen to music. These were the last days when CRT televisions still clearly ruled HDTV's, and VHS was still competitive against DVD. Music was still dominated by Y2K era genres, but many of them were starting to fade popularity wise. The most popular TV shows of this era were American Idol, Survivor, The Sopranos and CSI. Top movies were Spider Man, The Lord of the Rings, and Old School.

The Mid '00s: Late 2003 to Mid 2005. Politically, this era was dominated by the debate over the Iraq War, and the slow erosion of George W. Bush's popularity. The divisive 2004 election was the centerpiece of this era. The PlayStation 2 was still the dominant console, but folks were beginning to look to the 7th gen. Xbox Live started becoming big, but multiplayer and LAN parties were still bigger than online gaming. DVD overtook VHS, but VCR's were still popular items. Cell phones first start becoming affordable enough for teens to buy them. MP3 players become more popular, but have still yet to pass CD's. HDTV's are becoming more popular, but are still quite expensive. Popular shows during this era were American Idol, The Apprentice and Survivor. Popular movies were Napoleon Dynamite, Spider Man 2 and Mean Girls.


2000-2005 certainly are pretty dated by 2017.  Most of the stuff you mentioned don't even apply to the late 2010s. People saw the 2000s as futuristic or "recent", but as time moves on they're looking a bit old. And when looking at things like old tv commercials, fashion, or just anything within pop culture some would almost consider it a bit old school.

Yeah, I agree. It really does seem that most of the 00s (including 2006 and '07) are dated by today's standards. I bet by 2020, 2008 and '09 will be very dated as well.

Personally, I liked Cartoon Network the most from 2005-2008. Although by 2005 and 2006, I watched more of Boomerang than Cartoon Network (I had digital cable growing up). My favorite out of CN was 2007, despite the Boston bomb care in February and Jim Samples resigning as president. Even though I never really heard about that until 2014, so I was really ominous over that trivia.

My favorite time period of Cartoon Network is 2003-2007. However my favorite year overall is the same as yours....2007. Despite the Boston Bomb Scare and subsequent resignation of Jim Samples (and 2 other exceptions), 2007 was a great year for Cartoon Network, IMO.

Here's why:

My Gym Partner's a Monkey: The Big Field Trip (premiered January 14, 2007). It was a good special for a decent cartoon.
Camp Lazlo: Where's Lazlo? (premiered February 18, 2007). Good special.
Billy & Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure (premiered March 30, 2007). This is one of my favorite animated movie specials of all time. Still remember watching it.
Cartoon Network Invaded (the entire month of May 2007). This was so cool and scary at the time...can't believe that it's now 10 years ago. All the special episodes were awesome.
Billy & Mandy: Wrath of the Spider Queen (premiered July 6, 2007). The sequel to Big Boogey Adventure and it was just as great...two Billy & Mandy movies in ONE year. Hell yeah!
Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix (premiered August 10, 2007). Awesome movie.
Chowder (premiered November 2, 2007). I liked Chowder...it was so funny.
The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door (premiered November 11, 2007). This special was AMAZING, it was a crossover of Cartoon Network shows at the time.
Ben 10: Race Against Time (premiered November 21, 2007). I still remember watching this and being so pumped and despite the cheesiness, I loved the movie (still do).

Those specials were the reason why I loved Cartoon Network back in 2007. They made me hooked into the channel so much, even though my hype for it died around 2009. Most of my 2007 TV memories came from Cartoon Network alone, where I really watched Billy and Mandy, Foster's, Codename: KND, Camp Lazlo, Ed Edd n Eddy, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, and Chowder (at the end of the year).

I think it's because you were a junior at that time which is why you didn't see yourself like one. ;) Plus, I was not into smoking or drinking nor was I going out to party anyway which I think had to do with it.
