Subject: When did the late '00s become the early '10s?

Written By: bchris02 on 08/21/17 at 1:41 am

When I think about this, 2010 was by and large a late '00s world.  Lady Gaga was at her peak, Obama was still popular, and the Office was one of the most watched shows on television.  The recession was the political and national issue that dominated most people's conversations. Synth-hop dominated hip-hop and electropop dominated Top 40.  Post grunge was on its last legs but was still actually popular.  If there was a year that I think was quintessential for late '00s culture, it's 2010 (or possibly late 2009).

I think we finally shifted into the true '10s in late 2012 going into 2013.  The transition was gradual starting in late 2010 and finishing up around 2015 or '16 (this would be when the last traces of the '00s disappeared).

Oh it`s definetly 2010. But that`s EXACTLY what i`m saying!! 2010, 2011, to early 2012 felt like an extention to the 2000s. You can`t disagree on that! ::)

Mid 2011. I remember Early 2011 was the last period of time that still had a 2000's vibe/feel to it.

To me, I think 2008 was the quintessential late 00's year and 2011 was the quintessential early 10's year, however unlike what you said I think the 00's were well and truly gone by 2015.

Uh, yes I can. Since when are EDM, electropop, iPhones, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Netflix, HD videos, and social media's ubiquity "extensions to the 2000s?" The early 2010s were absolutely nothing to the late 2000s like the early 1960s were to the late 1950s.

2010 was when the late 2000s crossed fully into early 2010s territory. Not only was this chronologically the case, but 2010s technology, music (people like Usher and Chris Brown abandoned the r&b style that made them famous in favor of electronic dance), and post-Bush sociopolitical climate made that year seem clearly distinct from the 2000s decade. Sure, things have evolved over the past 7 years, but 2010 is still much culturally closer to today than it is to 2003.

2013 was when the 2000s died off, culturally. I think 2011, at least with the music, was when the late 2000s became the early 2010s.

That`s not what i meant when i said that those years were the extentions to the 2000s. I meant that early 2012 was like the last innocent time that we had before everything started becoming trash. That`s just my opinion but i think alot of people can relate to this. :-\\

I actually agree with that part, it's just that culturally, 2010-2012 are pretty solidly of a 2010s style, even if they were much better than 2013 to present.

Late 2009, when the iPhone 3GS came out. Summer 2009 was also rather early 2010s.

Obama, Lady Gaga etc. these are all 2010s things to me rather than 2000s. When I think late 2000s, I think more to late 2006-early 2009 period with the ringtone rap, MSN/MySpace, Blackberries etc.

I'd say 2010, as I agree with Infinity that it was that year that truly ushered in the 2010's era of technology (the release of the iPad & Smartphones getting big), pop culture (Lady Gaga at peak of her popularity, last remnants of post grunge gone, indie rock/pop now massively popular), and politics (the BP Oil Spill, Haiti Earthquake, & the GOP taking back Congress with the Tea Party movement are notable examples of politics leaving the era of the 00's and into the 10's). However, 2009 was still very pivotal, many late 2000's trends (myspace on last legs, flip phones still ubiquitous, 2000's era R&B/Rap still being status quo, etc.) were still big, but it saw the rise in subsequent early 2010's trends. 2008 was the quintessential Late 2000's year, and the last year to be safely removed from the 2010's in many respects.

I say late 2009 is when early 2010's vibe was starting to take over and the late 2000's were being left behind and by late 2010 it was definitely early 2010's

With Obama now in office and Lady gaga, EDM, HD technology and social media becoming fully prominent, I'd say Spring 2009.

But you're from the UK, lol...Gordon Brown in 2009 was still Prime Minister since 2007 when Tony Blair left.

How come you didn't have an option for 2008?  The shift of late 2008 when Obama got elected and the economy crashed and Lady Gaga came on the radio is what started the early 2010s. 2008 should have have been an option, but I went with 2009 because the 2008 - 2009 school year was very transitional.

That doesn't matter because I use the Obama example too and I'm Canadian. The day Obama got elected could actually be considered the day 2010s culture truly began.

Who's to say that applies to the entire world? ???

I know it doesn't but I'm saying it is a fine example to use in this context.

2009-2012 all kinda blends together in my head, due to me being in high school and also being in a different country. I think of 2009-2012 as its own pocket era.

Which country was that?

2009 without a question. Reasons already explained earlier in the thread. It's amazing how by the time I was in 8th grade (2009-10) people would call music from ONLY 2 YEARS back as "very old", because the changes were noticeable. You could still listen to music from 2013 and 2014 in 2017 and it's not even considered that "old" as 2007 music already was by 2009. No one can say that there wasn't a major shift in pop culture between late 2008 and 2009 as a whole year. To this day it's still the biggest shift, even bigger than the division and Trump issues going on in America the last couple of years.

I 100% agree with you. The 2008 - 2009 shift was the biggest shift so far, a very big transformation. Also there wasn't even a shift as big as it before that for a long time. It was definitely a changeful time.
