Subject: People who say they love the 2000's, yet bash on the late 2000's

Written By: Rainbowz on 02/28/18 at 8:02 pm

Has anyone else noticed that this is very common?
For example, you have people who talk about how much they love the 2000's decade. They say things like "the 2000's were a lot better than today" or "2000's were the last good decade" But then they also say things like "2008 is when things started to suck" or "2009 sucked" when, numerically speaking, those years are 2000's years as well. I've always seen people say that 2006 or 2007 was the last good 2000's year, and say "everything after 2006 or 2007 is terrible" yet they talk about how much they love the 2000's decade, when technically speaking, 2007-2009 are apart of the 2000's.
Do you think it may have to do with them seeing the late 2000's as the transition to 2010's culture? Or maybe because of the recession that happened at the time that kind of set a depressing tone?

The 2000s are not a homogeneous decade. I say I enjoyed the 2000s decade because I enjoyed most of it. Doesn't mean I have to love everything that came out of it. And yes, imo the late 2000s were transitioning into what is now the 2010s. They laid the groundwork for this decade. Plus when I say the late 2000s sucked I'm referring to most of the music from that time because it usually what's being discussed. Also, after 2008 due to the recession they cut a lot of programs from my high school. The cuts definitely made school less enjoyable (I still had fun though). After 2008 the atmosphere at school was never really the same. I prefer the early - mid 2000s to the late 2000s. I wouldn't care to go back to the late 2000s.

I'm not saying you have to enjoy every single aspect of 2000's culture. It's the people who say they love the 2000's decade, but they don't refer to which years they liked. And they talk about the 2000's being better, but then they hate on the late 2000's.
The 2000's decade is from 2000-2009. If they're saying they like the 2000's but hate the late 2000's, then they don't really like the 2000's. They only like a portion of it.

I honestly hate it when they do that i've seen comments on YouTube saying the 2000s started to suck after 2004 or it started to suck in 2008 or 2009.
I just use the term nostalgiatard for people who legitimately think that.

Maybe they just didnt like the Recession, Obama, MySpace dying, a shift to a more liberal pop culture, etc. I know some people who grew up in the early 90s that hated the late 90s because of the teen pop and beginning of a "sleazier" pop culture.

There was an episode from The Adventures of Pete and Pete where Little Pete, Monica, and Wayne were joking about a "genderless" animal. However, this episode was from 1996, not the 2000's.

Just imagine how people would react if that aired today.

People are more nostalgic for the early 2000s, definitely.  Also contributing is the fact that a lot of people group 2008 and 2009 in the '10s, despite the fact those years do have very '00s aspects to them.

I think overall is because out of all of the sections of the 2000s decade, the late section seems to be most connected to the modern world of the 2010s, hence why it is relentlessly bashed along with the 2010s. While I wasn't the biggest fan of the Late 2000s myself (neither back when it was happening or now), I'm not a pompous douche that's gonna disparage someone from liking it. I could also admit that the Late 2000s were still solid in many cultural aspects like film (The Dark Knight, Superbad, Avatar, etc.), TV (Breaking Bad comes to mind), & especially video games (First Half of 7th generation was very memorable between the peak popularity of Wii, and great games like Modern Warfare, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted 1 & 2, Zelda Twilight Princess, etc.).

I vividly remember when even the mid 2000s were bashed just as harsh (if arguably worst due to the mid 2000s being the catalyst for sh!t hitting the can in the later years) back in 2014/2015. Now in 2018, the mid 2000s are generally considered to be seen as a nostalgic time, well despite some 2000s babies (no offense) mistaking everything from 2004-2006 as still part of the early 2000s ;D, but I digress (we 90s babies were just as bad, many people my age thought for the longest time that we were legitimate 90s kids, so its every generation guys). Wait a couple years and I assure you the negative energy surrounding the Late 2000s would start to massively subside.

Also, most people around our/your age were in middle school during the late 2000s and so much of the late Gen Y kid culture had ended by then and early Gen Z kid culture started then, as we've been over in many previous threads. I distinctly remember my friends in middle school, like 2008, making fun of the new kid stuff like Johnny Test, Hannah Montana, iCarly, Flapjack, Fred Figglehorn, Naked Brothers Band, etc. and saying things like "What happened to the good shows like Samurai Jack?" or "I feel so sorry for my little brother"

It has to do with the fact that the later years of 2000s were filled with futurism. The first iPhone came out. The Wii was revolutionary for the sake of innovation. 80s, 90s, and early 2000s gamers didn't like the direction motion controls and DLC put gaming in. Social media became mainstream. CN and Nick were cancelling shows and replacing them with new ones. Not to mention the recession.

Those who were teens and adults during the late 2000s are more skeptical of it.

Personally, I was in grades K-2 during this time, and yeah, I enjoyed it. The Wii and DS were great, hell even the GBA SP and PS2 were still commercial relevant. YouTube was new and wasn't over saturated and too restricted like it is today. Cartoon Network had Ben 10, Chowder, Camp Lazlo, Flapjack, Johnny Test, etc.

Isn't that something positive though? If I were a teen back in the 2000's and heard that the first iPhone would be released, I would've been hyped as hell. Who wants to live with a crappy flip phone?  ;D That's not to say that the first iPhone isn't crappy, at least from a 2018 perspective. Still a thousand times better than a flip phone though.

I think both of you explained exceptionally well why people such as myself are not too fond of the late 2000s but loved the rest of the decade. :)  I don't hate the late 2000s but I can't see myself being nostalgic for it. However, I think around 2009 is when YouTube was in it's golden age. So there's an exception.

Eh. Synthpop's golden age is in the early 80s and Europop in the mid-late 90s, leaving a bit of a wasteland in-between which I'm not fond of.

Lol I can actually pull eye rolls like that (I've had a lot of practice). It's my Halloween party trick ;D
