Subject: What year did that last traces of the '00s die?

Written By: bchris02 on 04/09/17 at 1:07 am

While the transition from '00s to '10s occurred mostly on the '00s side of the decade marker, there were some holdovers that lasted a good ways into the '10s.  What year do you think the last traces of the '00s died?

I would say it happened in early 2013. For one, late '00s-early '10s style electropop died.  C'Mon by Ke$ha was the last song of that ilk.  It was the end of an era.  Secondly, the finale of the show The Office aired in May 2013.  The Office, in my opinion, was to the '00s what Friends was to the '90s.  Both shows held over well into the following decade.

What do you think?

Early 2013 sounds about right. I actually remember around the beginning of that year, I saw some teenagers wearing hipster fashion. When I was in high school (2008-2012), hipster fashion was non-existent. Indie-Hipster bands were growing in popularity starting around late 2012, but by 2013, they were officially a dominant force in this decade's culture. EDM was also getting really huge and basically replaced electropop. So yeah, early 2013 is pretty accurate.

I forgot about this.

2013 is the year that hipster fashion went into the mainstream.  It was also the year that emo/scene was gone completely.  While it had been out of style since 2010, you still saw some guys with the scene swoop as late as early 2013.  Not very many, but some.

EDM and teen pop also replaced electropop as you said and trap established itself as the dominant hip-hop sound.

I would say the 2012-2013 school year was similar to the 2003-2004 school year in a sense that it was the last time that the former decades previous influences (particularly from the late period) were still pop culturally relevant. I've given examples in the past on why the Late 90's officially died in 2004, and I see 2013 as the year the Late 00's officially died. In the case for 2013
it's the fact that Electropop died and EDM
& Trap started to get big, and when the hipster trend was starting to take in mainstream popularity.

If only indie-hipster bands became dominant. Were there any indie famous bands that became mainstream besides the Lumineers? Don't say Chainsmokers or Imagine Dragons. Those guys are not hipster and they're definitely not indie.

Are there even "indie-hipster" bands in the top 100 right now? Have there been any in the last few years?

Personally, I think 2011 was when the last traces of the 2000s died. Ever since 2012, I've been hearing dubstep and hardcore rap nonstop that didn't sound nothing like the previous decade. It was also the year when the most heartbreaking and tragic events happened in the 2010s (e.g. Treyvon Martin murder, Aurora Dark Knight shooting, and Sandy Hook Elementary shooting).

I would say mid 2012 at the very earliest and early 2013 at the latest. I specifically remember at about September/October 2012 Hipster fashion seemed to get big in Ireland and Britain anyway. Skyfall was released in late 2012 which I think is a very mid 2010's film Gravity Falls was first aired in late 2012 also very mid 2010's  and Taylor Swift got big with We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, All this at the time told me that the 2000's were gone. But you're right about Ke$ha with her last few electropop songs on the radio in early 2013. I remember hearing Die Young at around March 2013 and it actually made me nostalgic for the electropop era even though it was just ending!

If we consider late 2001 to be the curtain call for the '90s, I think the 2010s equivalent came in late 2010, when smartphones took over and the iPad came out. Really, even January 1, 2010 was already very un-2000s.

But if your barometer of no 1990s influence is when Friends ended, I'd say it was late 2012. That's when Windows 8 came out and everything had a touchscreen, and also when those mall brand clothes went out of style. That was the end of any 2000s influence.

Also, ironically, I wouldn't be surprised if Friends was more popular than The Office even within the 2000s. ;D

2012 barely had 2000s influences though. When Windows 8 was released, many people already had an iPad or something that had a touchscreen.

Yeah, but late 2012 is when even laptop computers started having touchscreens. Windows 8 Metro also popularized the flat design aesthetic in North America.

Windows 8 wasn't really a popular OS to use. Not to mention that people had more influence with Windows 10, since everybody could've upgraded to it on a Windows 7/8 PC.

We are talking about traces. Traces means "a very small quantity, especially one too small to be accurately measured". Based on that definition then the last traces of the 2000s was ended after mid 2012.

In a political sense (before 9/11) there were some 90s trace during 2000 to September 10, 2001.

I would probably say mid/late 2013 was the last time there was still any real trace of lingering 2000s culture. You had the conclusions of certain late 2000s shows such as The Office, Dexter, and 30 Rock, plus it was the last stretch of time that home gaming was primarily 7th-gen. Blackberry phones were more or less done for by this point, although a few people still owned them (some still do). Around the second half of 2013, the 2010s look finally started to become more obvious, advancing beyond the neutral and washed-out scene influences of the first few year; (Anthony Padilla of Smosh, for example, still had a scene swoop in early 2013 but then eventually abandoned it.

Since the vast bulk of what I just listed is borderline 2000s/2010s, a more definitive end to 2000s culture would be 2011, which was not only an extremely pivotal year for international politics, but it was also when traditional rock fell completely out of the mainstream for good and also about the time smartphones became more popular than dumb phones.

I remember feeling like 2000 was pretty different even from 1999, and lamer. I can't put my finger on what exactly changed, though, but there seemed to be less intensity. However, I don't know if I'd say there was no 90s influence left in 2000.

On the TV side, I remember Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in 1999 and Survivor in 2000, and I didn't like either of those shows and really couldn't stand Survivor. I got the sense in 2000 that TV was going downhill fast. I can't think of any music from 2000 that was as intense as The Bad Touch by Bloodhound Gang or The Slim Shady LP, both from 1999.

2000 just felt kind of blah. Maybe part of it was that the millennium hype was over and that comes only once every thousand years. The late 90s had lots of disaster flicks which might have been influenced by some undercurrent of millenarian thinking in the culture. From the early 2000s, a lot of post-apocalyptic stuff became popular, like the zombie genre. For an example of early 2000s post-apocalyticism in music, Broken by Seether and Amy Lee comes to mind.

Eh. I guess....early '00s fashion was worst than quintessential '80s fashion. Also, 2000 had the closest and most controversial Presidenial election in modern US history. The early 00s was a weird time but maybe that's because I was only 0-4 during that period.

The Mummy (1999) is an awesome movie. The Real Slim Shady was good, along with the Marshall Mathers LP as a whole, but The Slim Shady LP was better. If I Had, Rock Bottom, and As the World Turns are Eminem's best songs.

I don't find her music terrible but I definitely liker her solo music from 2003-2008 better than her solo music from 2011-present. However, that's not the reason why I find her less attractive. Back then, she was more down to Earth and she was charming. Now, she acts like a goddess and doesn't seem as down to Earth as back then. Also, her body.... :)....was "better" back then.

:) "Did I make you feel old?." Not in the way you'd expect. Let me explain. Approaching and turning 30 in 2016 was kinda bad and weird. I'm definitely not where I hoped to be but at some point, I had to admit to myself that I didn't really put any real effort to be where I wanted.

Annnnd what I just did there makes me feel old. I've gotten to this point where I feel super comfortable telling teenagers about life and trying to steer them in the right direction.

I mainly like to point out 1999 because usually, pop culture's change is gradual, seamless, or entirely unnoticeable. I remember the change in 99 being SOO in my face. I really hope to experience another year like it. 2008 comes second with all the electropop dance music, the recession and Obama. 1992 comes third because just briefly it seemed like the world was in the palm of Kurt Cobain's hand, the (albeit smaller) PCness vs anti-PCness battle, and Bill Clinton. I've got the feeling in my bones that we are nearing another upper tier in your face transitional year. I just hope it's good.

If we consider late 2001 to be the curtain call for the '90s, I think the 2010s equivalent came in late 2010, when smartphones took over and the iPad came out. Really, even January 1, 2010 was already very un-2000s.

But if your barometer of no 1990s influence is when Friends ended, I'd say it was late 2012. That's when Windows 8 came out and everything had a touchscreen, and also when those mall brand clothes went out of style. That was the end of any 2000s influence.

Also, ironically, I wouldn't be surprised if Friends was more popular than The Office even within the 2000s. ;D


I agree with this.  I think '00s culture was for the most part wrapped up by the end of 2010.  However there were some holdovers that lasted until around 2012/13.

:) "Did I make you feel old?." Not in the way you'd expect. Let me explain. Approaching and turning 30 in 2016 was kinda bad and weird. I'm definitely not where I hoped to be but at some point, I had to admit to myself that I didn't really put any real effort to be where I wanted.

I agree with you, 100%.

In 1998 you had artists such as Celine Dion, Sarah McLaughlin, Jewel, Fastball, Third Eye Blind, Marcy Playground, and Goo Goo Dolls.

Then in 1999 you had mostly teen pop and Latin pop. Adult contemporary swiftly went in the back burner.

It's one of the most sharpest changes/turns in music since 1964.

I remember feeling like 2000 was pretty different even from 1999, and lamer. I can't put my finger on what exactly changed, though, but there seemed to be less intensity. However, I don't know if I'd say there was no 90s influence left in 2000.

On the TV side, I remember Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in 1999 and Survivor in 2000, and I didn't like either of those shows and really couldn't stand Survivor. I got the sense in 2000 that TV was going downhill fast. I can't think of any music from 2000 that was as intense as The Bad Touch by Bloodhound Gang or The Slim Shady LP, both from 1999.

2000 just felt kind of blah. Maybe part of it was that the millennium hype was over and that comes only once every thousand years. The late 90s had lots of disaster flicks which might have been influenced by some undercurrent of millenarian thinking in the culture. From the early 2000s, a lot of post-apocalyptic stuff became popular, like the zombie genre. For an example of early 2000s post-apocalyticism in music, Broken by Seether and Amy Lee comes to mind.


Let's not forget the height of the Left Behind series.

Late 2000s holdovers I would agree lasted until 2013, but the late 00s don't count as the real 00s so I ignore them and put them with the 10s.

I was just listening to the Marshall Mathers LP and remembered a lot of songs I liked, especially The Way I Am. The video is also brilliant and depicts a dark and gritty look that really works, with lots of grays and blacks in the color scheme.

So 2000 has good stuff and intensity and good use of dark themes and coloring.

We will see.  As 2009 gets farther and farther in the rear-view mirror, the late '00s does feel more "00s-ey" than it did at the time.  I think in the future the recession era will either be lumped in with the '00s or will be considered its own era like the Y2K era is.  That era didn't have a ton in common with the mid '10s.

Personally I see Y2K era as part of the 2000s, and the recession era does have quite a few things in common with the mid 2010s. Ever since 2008, changes have been gradual and we are not in a completely different world now compared to 2009. The late 00s just don't seem 2000s to me at all, even 2006 and 2007 don't have that strong 2000s culture. '05 and before is when 2000s culture was the strongest and really shined, especially the early 2000s.

The 2012 transition for me could almost feel like the 1999 transition for older Millennials (just an opinion).

There was no 2012 transition. There was a 2013 transition but I don't believe it was as big as 1999 and certainly not as big as 2008.

Well, it's personal life business, that's probably why (I started getting depressed later in the year). I did sort of feel like late 2012 was a bit different than early 2012. It was also the year that mass shootings seemed to escalate to even greater levels (Chardon, Aurora Theater, Sandy Hook).

Also, as I could remember, girls started getting CRAZY about 1D that year, and it annoyed the hell out of me.

I would say the '00s were entirely gone by 2014 or possibly late 2013.  I think the real difference is the fact that the late '90s tend to be associated with the '90s while the late '00s tend to be associated with the '10s.

Yep. To expand... intense is a great word to describe 1999. I think some it had to do with all the Y2k energy coming to a head. I remember everyone preparing for all the computers to fail. A lot of people including my parents bought a small emergency stockpile just in case. Also, I really loved how even in 1999 a song like The Bad Touch was so silly and risqué even for a year where we felt like we had seen it all. There was such a backlash from conservatives against gaming and alternative culture after Columbine. For a moment Marilyn Manson was the poster boy for everything wrong in America to that crowd.

I feel the same way about everything you said about 2000 except one thing: I feel 2000 was 1999 without the edge. It's possible the backlash against alternative culture had a little to do with it. 2001 kinda sorta regained some of that edge with bands like Slipknot and SOAD. The second half of 2000 was particularly dull. And you hit the nail on the head with your tv observation. Those shows were ubiquitous and were being pumped out like crazy. It really did feel like television had fallen into a hole so deep it could never climb out. But with time comes change. May tv never get that bad again.

I honestly don't know why people loved 1999 so much. It was just a year where Bill Clinton was almost impeached, while everyone kept obsessing over the Internet. It was more culturally 00s than 90s.

Also, sites like BuzzFeed think of 1999 as more '90s.


Buzzfeed is basically the same website who thinks songs from 2004 count as early 2000s. It's not really that special.

I tend to see younger people associate stuff that late as being part of the 90's and not so much of people who actually experienced the 90's from start to finish.

If you ask someone born in 1983 how the 90's were to him or her, it would be incredibly different than if you do with someone born in the mid to late 90's for example.

Another thing: I sometimes would even see people lump Avril Lavigne as a 90's musician.

I honestly thought that the 90's died somewhere in the 1998-1999 school year (based on my research, as I was only a newborn in Summer 1999).

Yeah, it's always people who barely remember the 90s who keep saying that 1999 was a 90s year. Anything within the 90s don't really compare well with 1999. Especially with how most stuff from 1999 could compare easily with 2000-2006.

Yeah, the 1998-1999 school year was pretty much the last cultural 90s year that I could tolerate. Aside from that, 1999 as a whole was more transitional than an actual 90s year.

I don't particularly like the popular culture from 1999 either, but it's not my least favourite of the decade. Personally, my least favourite year of the 90s is 1990. It was a really bland year in music and popular culture, in my opinion.




1990 was a good year for movies. Ghost, Home Alone, Pretty Woman, Dances with Wolves, and Goodfellas, Edward Scissorhands and a bunch of other good movies are from 1990. What's most impressive is that year had good films across such an array of genres/styles.

Yep. To expand... intense is a great word to describe 1999. I think some it had to do with all the Y2k energy coming to a head. I remember everyone preparing for all the computers to fail. A lot of people including my parents bought a small emergency stockpile just in case. Also, I really loved how even in 1999 a song like The Bad Touch was so silly and risqué even for a year where we felt like we had seen it all. There was such a backlash from conservatives against gaming and alternative culture after Columbine. For a moment Marilyn Manson was the poster boy for everything wrong in America to that crowd.

I feel the same way about everything you said about 2000 except one thing: I feel 2000 was 1999 without the edge. It's possible the backlash against alternative culture had a little to do with it. 2001 kinda sorta regained some of that edge with bands like Slipknot and SOAD. The second half of 2000 was particularly dull. And you hit the nail on the head with your tv observation. Those shows were ubiquitous and were being pumped out like crazy. It really did feel like television had fallen into a hole so deep it could never climb out. But with time comes change. May tv never get that bad again.


It sounds about right to say that 2000 was 1999 without the edge, though there was some edgy stuff in 2000 and some bright spots, like the Marshall Mathers LP and Gundam Wing on Cartoon Network. In fact, thinking back on it, 2000 is when I started to get into some anime, though I was introduced to it in the late 90s.

Hell, I remember this commercial playing all the time in 1998/99.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIfu-FsxG00

I also remember seeing Golden Boy, the episode where the guy is struggling to keep his boner in his pants, at a party at a friend's house in 1999. It was hilarious, plus one of my friends blew a big, bare-assed fart on a guy's face who had passed out on the couch upstairs. The recipient of this fart was a douche anyway, so it was hilarious, and when we replayed the VHS footage of the fart after watching Golden Boy (yes, someone filmed the fart on a camcorder), my friend remarked that the guy "got the full aroma" when someone stated that he even pulled down his pants.

Fun times in 1999!

Anyway, though I had some introduction to anime in the late 90s, 2000 is when I got into it in a bigger way. My two younger brothers helped get me into it on Adult Swim.

Having older and younger siblings, and older and younger friends, helps broaden a person's cultural horizons.

I'm an idiot so instead of figuring out how to do a spoiler or hide thing, I'm just gonna delete most of the vids.

I got into Robotech somewhere before Gundam. Robotech led me to Macross. I feel like that was the first "real" (non Sailor Moon and DBZ) anime I ever got into.

Anime was pretty heavy back in the 90s. On one hand, I felt cool getting into this new thing but also feeling a little put off by it cuz it could be slightly off putting and understood it to a point.

There's something to each of those dates, though. The passage of time puts the suck factor in new perspective and softens it, and people forget the initial overall disappointment of the year and remember the good parts, but there still was a shift that people noticed as a comedown from something better.

As long as there's some things important to you and you feel some passion in 2017, you probably will be nostalgic for this year or this era. But nostalgia isn't so simple as to make all years relative so that it's just a matter of time before you feel the same nostalgia for each of them. Some years are more memorable than others in a good way, both personally and more broadly for large sections of society or even for a society as a whole.

I agree.  With popular culture, I experienced this for the first time ever in the mid '10s.  Top 40 isn't what it was in the early '10s and before.  You have to get back to the early '90s before I can say I would prefer mid '10s music.

Like you say though, part of it is "good ole day" syndrome.  Like when I look back at 2007, I remember important events that affected me both good and bad.  We remember the music we liked and the fashion we were into.  However, we have tendencies to gloss over the negatives of every day life back then.  For all the good songs that came out in 2007, there are a ton of terrible one-hit wonders that nobody remembers anymore.

You will be very nostalgic for your life right now in just a few years.  You will look back on your senior year of high school with much more fondness than you can imagine now about halfway into college.  Enjoy this time of your life.

I graduated in 2004 and I remember that it was quite stressful plus I was dealing with a relationship issue that had me quite depressed.  However, despite all that, it was still an exciting time of my life and by about 2006 I started to look back at that time pretty fondly.

That's great. Don't get me wrong, my life hasn't sucked in the past 3-4 years but I just highly doubt if I will be nostalgic for the mid 2010s. In fact, I got bullied a bit in elementary school (2005-2010) but I would rather relive then than now.

There might be some bits and pieces here and there that you remember fondly. I think it's important to realize that nostalgia really is for some periods more than others. Just having some good memories to get excited about from any given year or era doesn't mean it's all relative. But there will likely be some things you think back on and miss from this time.

There's events in my life in every 90s year that were pretty bad and yet also a lot of good things. The culture of the time still stands out for me and a lot of good things in my personal life. There's usually a mix of good and bad in any period and the good parts are likely to be remembered fondly after enough time passes.

But this still doesn't make things simply relative. Some periods stand out a lot more than others in a good way because the good was either really good or the bad wasn't as bad or was more readily ignored.

Like I've noticed with my father, he can get nostalgic for just about any period since the 50s, but his nostalgia centers on the 50s and early 60s more than any other period, and after that his nostalgia is choosier, like for certain songs or feelings at certain times from the latter 60s, the 70s, 80s, even the 90s. Never heard him talk nostalgically about anything in the 2000s, though. So maybe nostalgia has a cutoff point later in life, or it's really just a few things later in life that are worth thinking back on when you get even later into life.

Never heard him talk nostalgically about anything in the 2000s, though. So maybe nostalgia has a cutoff point later in life, or it's really just a few things later in life that are worth thinking back on when you get even later into life.

I definitely remember the bad parts of my elementary school days...yet I get nostalgic for them. I guess I'll just have wait and see.

It's also the case that nostalgia doesn't just rely on forgetting the negative and remembering the positive. My dad, for example, is fully aware of some terrible things that happened to him in the 50s and early 60s, yet he loves those times. I'm fully aware of terrible things from my life in the 90s yet am nostalgic for those times. It's not the bad things I miss but the good ones.

Aside from the relaxed culture and good music, the 90s had a lot of sheeshty aspects, like high divorce rates and wacky families (hence the dysfunctional family sitcom). Some people nostalgic for the 90s likely screen out the bad parts, but a lot are aware of them and still wish they could have the good parts back.

It's not as common on this website. But on Youtube and other places on the internet, there all these people who claim "everything went to hell once 2000 hit".


I don't unconditionally love 1999 and hate 2000. 2000 was actually kind of idyllic in a weird way. 1999 culture cemented and became THE culture as people marinated on the material released in 99.

I mean yeah in every decade there is good and bad because humans are imperfect beings. However, yes we rather primarily remember the good parts. I mean why would you want to remember the bad? :P.

I am kind of this way.  I get very nostalgic for the late '90s/early '00s up to my high school graduation in 2004 and I get even more nostalgic for 2009-12.  I'm a bit choosier with the mid '00s and I have never desired to go back and relive them.  Either send me to 1999 or to 2008.  I feel like the mid '10s will also be a choosy period of my life where some things I will look back fondly on, but for the most part won't miss (much like the mid '00s were for me).

I can relate to this with 2009.  2009 was both the absolute best and the worst year of my life.  However, the good that happened that year was so impactful on the overall course of my life that it overshadows the bad and I would relive it in a heartbeat.  Thing is, when 2009 winded down, I was glad for the year to be gone because at the time, the bad seemed a lot more impactful than I remember it today.

Since some of us(including Chris) feel like minor residual vestiges of the 90s lasted all the way till late 2006, I wonder if anyone here thinks traces of the 00s lasted until 2016.

I'd say no; the 90s took a few years longer to completely shower off than the 00s.

I disagree. The 90s left way quicker than the 00s did. The 2010s and 2000s aren't as different as the 90s and 00s. If someone said the 00s lasted until 2011 I would not completely disagree with them and throw that idea away, but if someone said the 90s lasted until 2001, I most definitely would.

I thought that the 10's overtook the 00's by 2012, and by around 2014, all 00's traces were dead (especially after the first half of 2014, where the Crimean Crisis and Elliot Rodger's rampage took place).

The 2012 transition for me could almost feel like the 1999 transition for older Millennials (just an opinion).

I may be biased with my personal life because in 2012 I was very depressed but got out of that depression in 2013.

Mainly the internet and attitudes in general. Music on the radio is still about sex and drugs and fashion isn't drastically different. But the 00s and 10s are different no doubt, I can list far more differences than similarities. But compared to say the 90s and 00s, or even the 90s and 80s, 00s and 10s are a lot more similar to each other.

I'm sorry if I'm in the minority, but I really think the late 90s were not awful especially 1999. First and foremost, there was more than just teen pop and eurodance. I take it most people here seem to forget about rock, hip-hop, R&B and even adult contemporary that were all on the charts in that era. Second, that era had amazing video games at that time considering that it introduced many franchises that some are now classics. Third, the economy was so fantastic that almost everyone could afford anything and last, there were many memorable TV shows that unfortunately seem to be difficult to find these days (even on Netflix).

I agree with this.  The late '90s was a very diverse time for music.  You had a lot of different genres at the time and nothing really seemed to dominate.  If you were in middle school at the time, especially if you are female, I can understand why you would think it was all about teen pop.  That was a big deal, but it was by no means dominant.

If you're talking about 1997-98 then fine but 1999 besides the economy and video games is not appealing to me. Also, you're definitely not in the minority because most people online RAVE about the late '90s. 1999 was when pretty much every genre that defined the 1990s went almost completely absent (grunge, adult contemporary, gangsta rap, R&B, eurodance, Britpop, even Country). With all of those genres almost absent what took there places for the most part?.....Nu-metal, Teen pop, post-grunge, Latin pop, Bubblegum pop & europop, urban contemporary. Don't get me wrong, 1999 had a few good to great songs but overall....just isn't for me when it comes to music and fashion.

I loved 1999 music wise. The build up to the Phantom Menace was great. Accepting that it wasn't like the originals was hard after we all say it. Movies like the Matrix and Fight Club helped us forget. Plus there were all those news stories of fight clubs sprouting up across the country because of the movie. A lot happened in 1999. I felt so bored during 98.

I get where you're coming from, but please don't take this the wrong way...1999 was more of a great year to experience imo. You felt the transition. You could see the pop culture change in the air and that alone was fascinating even if you didn't care much for what things were changing into.

I also know where you're coming from. 1999 had the new millennium excitement and vibe to it with people both freaking out about and anticipating Y2K. That would be fun to experience (instead of me being a 5 month old baby in December 1999) but still I'm just not a fan of the pop culture overall from that time.

I agree completely when it comes to video games. In fact, 1999 was the year that I really started playing video games, so I have a lot of fond childhood memories when it comes to that. I would also agree that there were still great T.V. shows on the air. Movies were good too, but on the whole, 1990-1998 was a bit stronger. There was some good music, but compared to the previous years of the 90s, it was really lacking.

I know you didn't say this but I just want to clear things up a bit...I don't hate the late '90s.

I don't really know why I lost interest in the late '90s...I guess because I was young (12-14) and thought since I was born in the late '90s it must have been a super cool amazing time and I saw so many people online loving the late '90s. I saw so many articles on BuzzFeed and video on YouTube romanticizing the late '90s and I fell in love with the time period but now that I'm 18...I look back and my "tastes" have changed.

I think the transition began in 2012, but it trickled in slowly before completing in the second half of 2013.

In 2012, you had Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe", which was hugely instrumental in bringing in the mid '10s sound and pushing electropop aside.  Then you had Macklemore debut that fall.  Macklemore is one of the definitive artists of the mid '10s.  2012, especially the second half, had a lot of mid '10s influence.  It's just the early '10s hadn't quite been pushed out yet.  That happened sometime in 2013.

Sure it will.

The '10s are the new '60s.  It's going to be remembered for the internal political tension and the culture war between old and modern ideologies.  The culture, for the most part, has went right along with that zeitgeist.  Like the '60s, the '10s are ending with conservatives winning the battle but ultimately losing the war because they can slow the momentum but can't stop it.  I think the story of the '10s will be social justice warriors vs. the alt-right, and the building tension starting with Obama's election and culminating in Trump's election.

Call Me Maybe was released in Fall of 2011... So it makes no difference whatsoever. It's just another pop song from the early 10s.

Macklemore got really popular in 2013, not 2012. 2012 was 2011 part 2. No difference at all. The transition started in February 2013.

They sometimes even say that "the 90's lasted until 2004", which is idiotic. Even 99s are part of that bandwagon (not us though).

I've even heard people born in 2001 say that, even though they don't really remember 2004, topkek.

A 2001 born can remember 2004 but I understand what you're saying, kek :).

Not exactly sharply though

5-12 are the "sharp years" of your childhood, imho

They could vaguely remember 2004, but not by a lot.

I can remember 2002 pretty decently not clear but decent. I'm just saying that a 2001 born saying they remember 2004 isn't far fetched.

It annoys me when they say that because they're really referring to the late 90s influence lasting until 2004, even though the late 90s are barely 90s.

The real 90s were late 1991-1996. 1997-1999 weren't the 90s, they were a weird parallel universe where everything suddenly went from being rustic and grungy to being bubbly, futuristic, and girly.

Overall I agree but one thing is I think the real '90s was mid/late 1993 until early 1997.

The late 90s were dead and gone by 2004 as well in my opinion.

Thank you Slim! The late 90s were gone before 1999 was even over.
Although, that's probably his age talking. He probably sees 1997 being closer to 2000 than 1994. When really, 1997 was still a world away from what 1999 would bring us.

1994-1996 are as '90s as you can get bruv. 1997 and 1998 were the start of millennium culture which was not 100% '90s.

1997 and 1998 was regular late 90s. not quite millennium culture.

The Millennium culture first appeared in 1997 and 1998. Of course, '97 and '98 were regular late 90s and that's why they are not totally '90s

I'm half-kidding. 1997-1998 was still the 90s though a different breed of 90s.

Exactly, the regular late 90s...


I used to think millennium culture was late 90s AND early 00s culture together. BOY WAS I WRONG! They're actually all distinct from each other.
Regular late 90s being: 1997-1998, Millennium culture: 1999-2001 Early 00s being: Late 2001-2003

The earlier traces of that shift were apparent in the mid 90s, like after 93 or 94, with groups like Dave Matthews Band, Boyz II Men, Hootie and others. Granted I like much of the music from this time, but the shift started happening well before 1997. Also, the show Friends was a move in that direction.

I agree with late 1991-1996 being the real 90's. However, 1997-1998 still felt very 90's as well, even though by then you knew that the culture was going to change.

Fall 1996 - Summer 1998 just seemed like the classic late 90's to me.

I agree with you in bold.

However, I think mid/late 1993 until late 1996/early 1997 as the "real" '90s.

The last significant traces of the 00s were in 2010, but they were rapidly disappearing. I remember 2011-2012 feeling very 10s, but the late 00s still seemed somewhat relevant; that was no longer the case in 2013. I knew then and there that we had entered into the thick of the 10s. Interestingly enough, that's when this whole nostalgia craze kicked in for me. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, I found myself only listening to music from the late 90s.

The first sign of traces started dying in 2007 & 2008 every last piece was blown out month by month.
By 2009 we were living in a world 25% of the 2000sness
