Subject: When will late 2000s/early 2010s nostalgia become widely accepted?

Written By: Zelek3 on 08/01/17 at 4:10 pm

As machine mentioned, we're in a period right now where the early (and to a lesser extent mid) '00s have just gotten to a point where they've starting being "nostalgic", while the late '00s/early '10s are still recent enough that they're still the cool thing to hate on at the moment and claim that was when everything "went downhill", due to iPhones, social media, Great Recession, etc.

So, how many more years until late 2000s/early 2010s nostalgia will be accepted? Oddly, I kind of see inklings of it now, perhaps due to social media and technology causing the world to accelerate at an unprecedented rate and shortening the "nostalgia cycle". This year, the songs "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO and Owl City's "Fireflies" became Internet memes, and there are also "early 2010s high school" memes posted on Facebook/Twitter. If you look on early 2010s song YouTube videos, there are many people commenting how the memes remind them of simpler times of high school and Obama's first term, before we entered the bitter "post-ironic" era of 2013/14-onward.

Probably in 10-15 years. It's barely been 6 months since Obama left, lol.

I don't think 2000s nostalgia is even widely accepted yet, let alone the 2010s. We are still in the 1990s nostalgia period even though it has been pretty lame.

But early-mid 2000s nostalgia is becoming widely accepted now. That's So Raven, Series of unfortunate events, TRL, Anchorman, Finding Nemo, Invader Zim, Captain underpants, Prison Break, Big Fat Liar, xXx, etc. have gotten/will get rehashes, sequels, adaptations, and/or reboots and there's all these articles and vlogs about early 2000s fashion.

Early and mid 2000s nostalgia is in full motion, man.

As far as late 2000s nostalgia, the community always start underground. Their in a small clique right now that will eventually grow. Heck, I'll even add my self.

Hopefully during the 2020s. I want long hair on guys to be cool again, or I'm gonna have to pray the straight away in me.

Why not? I can see it being accepted.  8)

Right now, nothing can change my opinion about the 2010s, especially its core. This is why I'm waiting for the 2020s to kick in; hopefully I'll be in the right state of mind then, and that everything that people forgot about from the 2000s will be brought back in the 2020s.

How is it in full motion? 1990s nostalgia started around 2012, so why would 2000s nostalgia start so much earlier than 2022? Sure online there is some nostalgia going around, but full motion? Not at all. 1990s nostalgia is still here.

But early-mid 2000s nostalgia can coexist with 90s nostalgia can't it? That's what I've been seeing.

I just don't think it's in full force yet. Starting stages? yeah. But not in full motion yet.

Honestly, when nostalgia reaches mainstream, it ruins it. 2000s nostalgia is mid ground how its really supposed to be. Just go to YouTube and search Billboard flashback 2000s for example. The community are in the comments and that's enough.

I kinda agree. That's when Hollywood starts making crappy reboots of that decade's movies/shows left and right, and "normies" start posting unfunny nostalgia memes on Facebook, Buzzfeed, or Twitter.

Yeah, it's probably going to be a few more years at least. Around maybe five years ago was when I first started to notice some nostalgia for the early '00s beginning to emerge, and it's only been maybe around the last two years that any nostalgia for the mid '00s became even marginally acceptable.

Most likely, we will see late '00s and early '10s nostalgia start picking up steam around 2020 or so. That's a guess, but I'm basing it off the fact that early '00s nostalgia became a thing at a similar point during this decade. As far as when it will become widely accepted, that probably won't happen until the late '20s. Remember, we're getting just now to the point where core '00s teens are hitting those prime nostalgia years of their 30s, so '00s nostalgia is only now becoming more widely accepted. When you guys that were core '10s teens start hitting 30 during the second half of the '20s, that's when early '10s nostalgia will most likely become a true player.

Hopefully I'll be more nostalgic for 2008-2011 more often by 2020-2022, since 2007 was culturally mid 2000s for me.

I'd say 2020 it will be starting but I just wish full 2000's nostalgia would just blow up already. It's the first decade that I'm capable of being fully nostalgic for as I only remember 2/3 years of the 90's!

I am already ultra-nostalgic for that era.  In fact, my nostalgia for that era is so strong it can be painful.  I experienced that just the other day when watching Owl City's "Fireflies" video.  What I would give to be transported back to that era and to be that age again.

I just saw on Facebook there was an event ad for a "Y2K Dance Party". I am pretty surprised because it is kind of early. Usually it is after 20 years when a time period becomes retro and has its own party. Retroness for the early 2000s have started way too early as there is still 3 years left.

I say in about 4-5 years from now because a few years ago, there was nostalgia for the late 90s and early 00s.

It really wasn't. Nostalgia comes every 20 years. We are still in 1990s mode right now even though early 2000s nostalgia started creeping in absurdly early this year. But even now 2000s nostalgia is nowhere near surpassing 1990s nostalgia. The '20s will be all about the '00s. We won't start to see 2010s nostalgia until the '30s, a the earliest early 2010s nostalgia will come in the late '20s.

Now when I say this, little kids in the YouTube comments or on forums saying how much they miss an era doesn't count. I am talking about mainstream nostalgia which can be seen in movies, music, shows, etc. That usually comes 20 years after the era has passed.

Actually yeah, there was. I saw comments from the late 00s of people reminiscing about the 90s, and they weren't little kids. The same thing is happening right now. Besides, I even saw comments and even videos a few years ago from people saying they miss the early 00s, and it had only been 10 years since that time at that point.

No as I said, comments on videos don't count. I can make a comment about missing the late 2000s, doesn't mean the late 2000s nostalgia is in. It's about mainstream nostalgia you can't escape that is shown through the media (media not including BuzzFeed), not comments, whether you are a little kid or not.

Early 2000s nostalgia just started creeping in this year with the announcements of 2000s movies getting sequels and the new That's So Raven spin off and TRL returning. It's still nowhere near mainstream as 1990s nostalgia though. We are still primarily in 1990s nostalgia mode now.

Well, there's actually been a presence of 00s mainstream nostalgia for some time. It just has been overshadowed by the 90s.
