Subject: Can anyone explain why the early 2010s is the most definitve part?

Written By: Baltimoreian on 03/04/17 at 4:47 pm

Why does the early 2010s always count as the most important part of this decade, when it was only the continuation of late 2008 and 2009? Is there any reason to support this claim? I always just think it's annoying, since I lived and breathed 2008-2011, and it doesn't have any resemblances to what the 2010s actually have.

I can understand why people currently consider the Early 2010s to be the most definitive, however I believe that will change in the future for a number of reasons.

Personally, I believe that historians (and the general public alike) will one day consider the Mid 2010s to be the most definitive part of the decade. Between 2014-2016, we had the rise of IS, the inauguration of Donald Trump, Brexit, an increase in terrorist attacks worldwide, the deaths of famous figures such as Mohammad Ali, Crimea takeover, Referendum for Scotland's independence from the UK and the migration crisis in Europe. Not only that, but we also had sporting achievements, such as Leicester City defying all odds and winning the championship for the first time in their 132 year history and Usain Bolt becoming the most successful sprinter in Olympic history.

In Astronomy, NASA launched the first rocket to successfully return and perform a vertical landing in 2015. A year later, the first solar-powered aircraft circumnavigated the Earth and the first initial stages commenced to prepare humans to land on Mars in two decades time. In my opinion, the main reason as to why people currently believe that the Early 2010s are the most definitive, is because they laid the foundations for the current culture and we have only just entered the Late 2010s. Once we enter the 2020s and more people start to reflect on this decade, I believe opinion will change.

I never really thought the early 2010s was the most definitive part of the decade, since we already had so much resemblances with the late 2000s at the time. The 2010s finally got rid of them between 2013 and 2014, when Obama's second term was in place. At the time, the Republicans were furious to still see him in office, so it started a lot of internet flame wars in social media. But with the increase of ISIS (more than Al-Qaeda was since 9/11), Brexit, Trump's campaign, the biggest shooting in American history (at Orlando), the death of so many celebrities in 2016, and the Syrian refugee crisis defined the 2010s more than 2010-2012 altogether. Saying that the early 2010s is more definitive is something that the Early '90s Guy would usually say, not to Slim95 from my perspective.

I think it's too soon to say if it was definitive, but it was definitely an important time in history. I don't think the problems of the mid-late 2010s are all that disconnected from the early 2010s (or even the 2000s, frankly), it's all part of a coherent story.

So far the early 2010s are the most definitive. Because they had the most culture and most changes happen in what we see today. The mid 2010s are boring culturally, I just don't see how they can be definitive. Lady Gaga and electro pop are what define the 2010s! Not Ariana Grande stuff. 2008 and 2009 both also define the 2010s culturally. this period had the most 2010s culture by far. The skinny jeans, bright coloured clothing are all 2010s stuff and the most definitive for this decade. I honestly believe this will remain true even after the decade ends, I don't think the late 10s will have some huge new culture that will define the decade, it will show what's to come for the 2020s.

If you go onto Google and search "2010s decade", this is one of the first images that comes up. Most of the things listed came out or was popular in the early 2010s. I agree with the trends listed that made the most impact on this decade.

So the flame wars between Hillary and Trump supporters don't count during 2015 and 2016? Nor how people treat social media more seriously than any other era? Nor how we lost so many celebrities in one year? Nor the entire U.S. election we had last year? Are you secretly The Early 90s Guy?

Another image that pops up first. I totally agree, until time goes by and unless a lot of changes happen as we get into next decade, for now the most memorable parts of the 2010's would have happened throughout the early part of the decade, or at least the first half of it from 2010-2014. Movies and TV shows included. If you type in "2010's pop culture" on google you'll even see stuff that debuted in 2008 & 2009!

What's amazing is that the early 90's and the early 2000's were never definitive or important to its decades. However, the early 2010's will always be an important part of the 2010's, even if the mid 2010's end up becoming the most definitive years later, the early 2010's will always be remembered as a huge part that defined 2010's culture. I think the 80's decade was the last time early culture was important to its decade A.K.A. the early 80's.

You think this has something to do with how rapid the cultural change within a decade is? '90s/'00s had rapid changing culture with the '80s/'10s being consistent. The 1980s had consistent culture so whatever took place within the early 1980s could continue on and influence the rest of the decade. Same goes for the 2010s. While in the early 1990s due to the culture changing so often instead of the early culture continuing on it was instead largely replaced by the culture of the mid and late 1990s. For the early 2000s you could say it almost fell into irrelevancy as we got to 2008 or 2009.

The early '80s were quite distinct from the rest of the '80s. It was a sort of recession, pre-yuppie, pre-MTV 1980s. I'd say the mid-'80s are most certainly an important part of the decade. You have Madonna, MTV, Duran Duran, Thriller, NES etc. How can you have the '80s without those? :D

The pre-NES era with classic arcade games and Donkey Kong was definitely a huge factor in the 80's. Plus, MTV launched in 1981, and it was popular in its golden age from day 1 of the channel.

The release of Thriller (late 1982) is a good starting point for its popularity.

If you think that's bad, it wasn't available here in Australia until 1996! :P The channel itself was only launched then (because satellite TV only launched in Australia in 1995), but between 1987-1993, there was a music program called "MTV" on one of the free-to-air channels.

I see what you mean though. I would pick the early & mid 80's as the important parts of the decade. I agree with mid 80's being the most definitive part but I would pick the early 80's being more definitive to the decade than the late 80's, but then again I'm not an expert on 80's culture so I'll keep it as simple as that. Let's say the late 80's was important to the decade too, then 2010's culture is probably playing out like 80's culture, since both are very stagnant and consistent for many years. Throughout the 90's and 00's the cultures were rapidly changing, which is why there's no way the early parts of those decades can be "definitive".

The 00's seemed very definitive from 2003 to 2005. That was the whole 'Bling Bling', gold teethe, rapper, flashy, and cars bopping up and down, part of the 00's. When people think 00's decade, they think 2003 to 2005.

I would include 2006 & 2007 too because that marked the beginning of the social media era. The beginning of Youtube, early Facebook, Myspace's prime (although you could go back to 2004 on that one). A lot of big TV shows & movies of the 2000's were big throughout 2006 & 2007 as well. This is why 2003-2007 is defined as the core 2000's with 2004-2006 being the absolute peak of it (mid 2000's culture). 2003 & 2007 are the outliers of the core 2000's since 2003 is still mostly early 2000's and 2007 is mainly late 2000's.

That's exactly my point. The early 2000s had a lot of late 90s leftovers that couldn't be like its own era.

2000 was just like 1999. 2001 for the most part was like 1999/2001. 2002 is more of a 2000s year, but one cannot ignore the large amount of Y2K cultural leftovers that still was within the year. 2003 was when we finally got rid of most of the Y2K/Millennium 1998-2001/2002 cultural vibe. It's hard for me to see years 2000, 2001, 2002 (and the first half of 2003( as being years that could give you an idea of what the 2000s were like culturally as they either within or very close to the Y2K era. Same goes for the 1990s. The early 1990s had a lot of late 1980s leftovers. Leftovers that were gone by 1993. By 1995 I doubt there was any 80s culture. For the 2010s the vibe of the early 2010s started sometime in the late 2000s (not saying the 2010s started in 2008/2009, but rather that you could trace the culture back to those years), but instead of that culture being replaced by 2015 it still is present. People can say that as of 2006 there were no 1990s leftovers. But in 2016 people say that the culture we have today wouldn't feel to far from what we had in the late 2000s.

Now with all that said I must stress that change is VERY gradual. We don't notice any changes in pop culture when we're still in said pop culture. We can make some ideas, but we can't say anything that is 100% true yet.

I can agree with the mid 90s being the most definitive because grunge was still around. I'm not 100% sure with decades before the 2000s. But for the 2000s I definitely think early 00s were the most definitive (same as the 10s).

You my friend are the core 2000's version of Early 90's Guy  ;D

But seriously for you, what makes 2000-2002 the most definitive part of the 2000's? C'mon I need some legit answers that makes Y2K/early 2000's culture, or even a year that still had a lot of late 90's influences, the most important years of the 2000's.

LOL everyone thinks I am the early 90s guy in disguise. Where is this guy? Does he post anymore? I like how he thinks.  8)

Well because Y2K is what represents the 2000s decade the most. I mean it literally means going into 2000 for one, and it was the funnest time in the decade with the best culture.

And the early 00s aren't really an extension of the late 90s. They are nothing like 1997 and 1998. Y2K era (1999 - 2001) is an era on its own that best represents the 2000s in my opinion. And 2002 (and late 2001) which isn't a Y2K year, also represent strong 2000s culture and it was clear we left the 90s. The late 90s also have some 2000s culture at least 1999. The early 2000s just overall feels like 2000s the most culturally to me. Now I may be a little biased because I grew up in the early 2000s and I was a young child so it felt like the most fun period to me.

lol. He's the guy who thought 1989 started the 90s. He also thinks The Simpsons truly started in 1990, and that the Christmas special premiering in 1989 was not an episode. (Not to revive that argument again, it's my least favorite)

Now I may be a little biased because I grew up in the early 2000s and I was a young child so it felt like the most fun period to me.


So what about those people who said that the 90s died in 2004? Do you believe that the aftermath of the 90s is basically the core 2000s? I don't get your logic. Even as a mid-late 2000s kid, I wouldn't say sh*t like this.

There's no way the early 10s can be the definitive portion of the decade.  If one were to think about it, this era has been consistent since it started. There's honestly no difference today and even between 2011. Most of the things still current actually began around that time frame.


Well because Y2K is what represents the 2000s decade the most. I mean it literally means going into 2000 for one, and it was the funnest time in the decade with the best culture.

The early 2000s just overall feels like 2000s the most culturally to me. Now I may be a little biased because I grew up in the early 2000s and I was a young child so it felt like the most fun period to me.
You pretty much are another version of him. You seem to forget that the 2000s as whole were different here compared to Canada. What you and Slowpoke experienced during that era was not the same here in the U.S. For one, you mentioned sometime ago that crunk rap didn't even make it to Canada while it was everywhere over here! I'm also pretty sure the fashion was different in Canada.

And the early 00s aren't really an extension of the late 90s. They are nothing like 1997 and 1998. Y2K era (1999 - 2001) is an era on its own that best represents the 2000s in my opinion. And 2002 (and late 2001) which isn't a Y2K year, also represent strong 2000s culture and it was clear we left the 90s. The late 90s also have some 2000s culture at least 1999.

I agree with this statement though! The Y2K era was its own. Nothing late 90s or early 00s about it. In fact, the 3 eras were entirely contrastive with each other.

LOL everyone thinks I am the early 90s guy in disguise. Where is this guy? Does he post anymore? I like how he thinks. 8)

He's a fraud! He acts like he knows everything about the 90s just because he lived it, but in reality he spews more myths than ever. He assumed that by 1993, everyone was using the internet when it was barely 10% or even under at that time. He thought everyone was wearing flannels and were all gloomy when those people were in the minority. He even inferred that all mid 90s rap was gangsta when nothing can be further from the truth. It was just as diverse as the other eras. All those statements he gave were all lies! Face it, that guy is definitely a phony.

The 90s did not end in 2004... That's laughable. And there was NO 90s aftermath in the 2000s, period. The 90s ended in 1998. The core 2000s are not the 90s aftermath. The early 2000s are 2000s years with zero 90s influences still around.

Until we get into the 2020's and know how the culture blends out, then I don't blame anybody for picking the early 2010's as the most definitive part of the decade right now. Type in "90's pop culture" or "2000's pop culture" on google images, you'll mostly see things that were big throughout the core/mid 90's or the core/mid 2000's, however, you type in "2010's pop culture" on google images, you see things that were popular throughout the early 2010's and even stuff that started as early as late 2008 or 2009. I really think 2010's culture flows a lot differently than 90's or 00's and it's obvious, because 2010's culture is so consistent and it's been almost the same since the end of the 2000's and early 2010's. The same can't be said about the 90's or 2000's, the 80's however I'd say yes since the 80's was very consistent.

I agree the 2010s we consistent. That's one of the reasons I think the early part was definitive because it laid the ground work of everything that would be popular now. I wonder if the 20s will be the same. I hope not because I would like to see some big and constant changes soon

This is something that I could agree with, since 2004 barely had any 90s leftovers to start off.


And there was NO 90s aftermath in the 2000s, period. The 90s ended in 1998.


So people forgot about the following after 1998:

Windows 95 and 98
Bill Clinton
VCRs
Dial-up Internet (with 56k modems)
AOL (3.0 and before)
Pre-9/11 New York City
etc.


The core 2000s are not the 90s aftermath. The early 2000s are 2000s years with zero 90s influences still around.

Honestly, the early 2010s can be seen as definitive, but I'm not entirely sure about 2010 and 2011. 2012 was the first year that started what we have today.

No one's saying that the early 2000's were the 90's, people are saying that late 90's influences and a lot of late 90's cultural fad's were still relevant throughout the early 2000's up until 2003.

Exactly. When we say the early 2000s were like the 1990s we're referring to the late 1990s. I remembers years like 1998 and 1999 still being quite relevant in terms of pop culture until 2003. A lot of early 2000s trends/pop culture didn't even start in the early 2000s. Most of them were from 1998/1999 and carried over. While most of the things that started in the early 2000s wouldn't even become big until around the mid 2000s. Also for Slim95 or Slowpoke we're talking two different regions of pop culture. I'm not sure if Canadian culture is the same as US American culture. So for those in Canada the Y2K/Late 1990s/Early 2000s era most likely was quite different than what is was here. I can't speak for Canadian pop culture as I'm sure things were different.

I just realized this. If Trump does get reelected in 2020 (which can easily happen), then that makes Trump president for more years in the 2020's than the 2010's, and that would end up making the early 2010's even MORE definitive to the 2010's decade, because then Obama would officially be considered as the main 2010's president and he would have spent the majority of his time president in early 2010's years.

You know some people do that as jokes. Not all of them literally believe that That's So Raven, Lizzie McGuire, and any other show made in the early 2000s are from the 90s. I remember having one conservation with a kid born in 2002, and I said that I was born in 1999, and then he said that I could enjoy shows like MLAATR and That's So Raven. I immediately found that as a joke because there's no way those shows could be made in the 90s. The people who usually say that on Buzzfeed don't really see the early 2000s as the same as you (which is what people should've said to you earlier). Hell, I kinda have a different view on the early 2000s because I already see some of it ooze on 2004-2006. Not only that, but I could vaguely remember 2002 and 2003 with some hints.

Nobody calls stuff from the late 2000s as the early 2000s. I could understand why people say that stuff from 2000-2006 are early 2000s, since they're kinda inbetween each other. Especially when you compare 2003-2006. 2007 can also be part of it, but that's because it kinda has some mid 2000s influences.


Which is a little less annoying because at least they are recognizing the 2000s decade, but still incorrect and I wish people would appreciate the mid 2000s more. Pretty soon people are gonna call things from the early 2010s "2000s", the cycle will never stop!  ;D Maybe once we have clear names for the decades like the 2020s, people will stop doing this.


Well, I don't think it would be a big deal to me. I mean, does it really matter if youngsters call stuff from the early 2010s as 2000s? It's not like they're all interested into decades much like us.

MESS you live in Florida too! Because of people like you Trunp will be the 2020s president. But it's okay your country doesn't matter anymore. The important thing is that Merkel is the Chancellor or the early 21st Century. Queen!  :-X

Actually they do. On YouTube I saw a comment who claimed a song from 2009 was early 2000s which of course is ridiculous. Then the most crazy things I've seen is someone claim a song from 2007 was 90s. And they were well aware of the dates the songs were released.

Maybe they don't really care about the release dates. Most of them were brainwashed by actual 90s kids, so that's basically why they think so.

If you think that's bad, it wasn't available here in Australia until 1996! :P The channel itself was only launched then (because satellite TV only launched in Australia in 1995), but between 1987-1993, there was a music program called "MTV" on one of the free-to-air channels.


Ha, if you think that's bad wait till you learn that it wasn't available in Canada until 2006 when it was already certifiable trash  ;D

We had MuchMusic which is somewhat similar. It's actually still a somewhat decent channel. I watched it a few months ago and they were playing '90s rock with only very few advertisements, probably less than YouTube tbh.

2005 Kashmir Earthquake

I remember the 2004 tsunami. Sad, I saw a video of a man being wiped away by the waves, probably drowning to death.
And then the Haiti earthquake in 2010??. Horrible things. I just realize that I'm lucky.

They must've been trolling or too young to realize their error. I have come to realize that most younger people (kids to high school teens) don't remember a thing of the early 2000s. And since the era is seen as very old to them they just see it as it being 1990s. Hopefully this is corrected. Although 2007 being 1990s is just ridiculous. But what's funny is how old 2007 is now. It's been 10 years and if we're talking just Youtube things were completely different. Take this into perspective for a sec. By 2007 you were a 12 year old on youtube, but by 2007 the modern teenagers of today were just little kids (between ages 3-7 by 2007). Although even if they're young this can easily be fixed by just doing some research online.

I was watching the BBC right as it started happening. Some Tamil people in my school lost family to it. I was crying. Everyone was crying.  :\'( my only friend in middle school who was Thai had a family who lost their house too  :o

Oh yeah, Haiti. I did my 200th volunteer hour (in Ontario you need to do 40 hours of volunteer work to graduate high school, but if you do 200+ you earn scholarships and stuff) to raise money for aid after the Haitian earthquake. A few bake sales, pizza sales, and a talent show. We raised something like $8000.  :)

The year after that was the Japanese Tsunami, then there was Typhoon Haiyan in the Phillipines, and there was the Nepal earthquake last year. I think the good thing is that we went from those crazy 100,000+ death tolls in the 1990s/2000s to sub-10,000 for the worst natural disasters nowadays. People are building better infrastructure.  :-X

It's either kids or people who are just plain dumb. I don't think anyone outside of this forum would troll on something like that.  ;D

There were early 2000s vibes until at least 2010. Some people in my class still had porcupine hair until The Bitter End (great Sum 41 song).

Probably because its the only part of this decade that feels kinda dated. It's not really the most defining part though since so much stuff happened and so many new trends came out between 2013-present.

The early 2010s may not be seen as definitive anymore. In the future more people may remember the 2010s for 2015/6-2019 because of the huge social unrest and global changes in those years.

I don’t agree at all with the early 2010’s being the most definitive part of the 2010’s, let alone 2010, which still had a fair amount of late 2000’s culture to it. I personally never heard anyone say the early 2010’s were the most definitive part.

How haven't you heard anyone say that? If you google "2010s decade" the first images that show up are early 2010s stuff.... That's why the early 2010s are most definitive. The cultyre was strongest during that period.

We aren’t even finished with the 2010’s yet, and we are still barely in the late 2010’s. Of course the majority of stuff you search are going to be from the early-mid portion of this decade.

The 2010s are the time of Adele, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, The Marvel Cinematic Universe, Xbox game consoles, HBO original shows, The Walking Dead, Kim Kardashian being in the tabloids, Instagram, Angry birds, and hipster fashion. True 2010s culture was going strong from 2011 to 2013. We’ve been moving away from that point to the year 2020 since 2014.

More like 2013-2016. 2010-2012/13 is it's own distinctive part of the decade.

I agree but I like putting one of the middle years of the decade as the definitive year for simplicity sake and it making more sense so the middle year being closest to the early part works. I think the same for the 2000s and think the early part defined it the most with 2014 being the definitive year then.

The 2010s atmosphere was starting to fade away in the mid ‘10s (especially in 2016). We were in the middle of the transition at that time.

I would say the mid 2010s, starting culturally from 2013, are the definitive era. Soft EDM, Trap rap, Game of thrones, identity politics, terrorism, 4K TVs, androids, Cloud storage, Netflix, Windows 10, Obama, Trump all gained popularity then and are still relevant today.

Most of those are core 2010s stuff, not mid 2010s. Game of Thrones started in 2011 for example. Also Windows 10 will be here forever because Microsoft said that is their last version. EDM started all the way back in 2008. The mid 2010s are 2014 - 2016. The core 2010s are like 2011 - 2017/2018.
