Subject: When was the last year there were some early 10’s holdovers?

Written By: JD120300 on 09/03/18 at 1:38 am

I’ve always thought early 2015 was the last year for early 10’s holders but what are your opinions on this topic???

2015. This video may be from 2015, and you could tell because of the topic of the video, but I guess you could still occasionally see aesthetically 2012-2013 looking things then, like this specific vid.

2014 to me feels more connected to the early 2010s, but I feel like we were solidly in mid 2010s culture in 2015, especially in terms of music.
btw i really hope this thread doesn't get locked cause this site's gonna get really boring really fast if every thread's gonna get locked due to "decadeology"

I would agree with early 2015 being the cut-off, but even then it was very little influences. Early 2015 was the last time that any songs sounded vaguely familiar to early 2010s hits, but by late 2015 you had Donald Trump in the news, the rise of these frequent terror attacks, Trap and EDM were huge. By then we were definitely closer to the late 2010s.

I would say mid 2014 - By late 2014, Gamergate, ISIS, SJWs vs. Alt-right, and racial tensions all became issues. Additionally, by that point, hipster was entering its peak (2015 was the peak year of the hipster movement).

I agree 100% I mean it was the last time Donald Trump wasn’t on the news, EDM wasn’t popular yet and the EDM they used sounded more like electropop. I say it was the last time the United States were somewhat optimistic

EDM wasn't popular? ??? We literally had artists like Avicii, Swedish House Mafia and Capital Cities making hits back in 2013 (not to mention the Trap song "Harlem Shake" defining the year), while Calvin Harris, DJ Snake and Clean Bandit did the same in 2014.

Also "Lean On" was a big hit in early 2015 and it sounds extremely mid-2010s.

Whoops forget what I said. Late 2014 was the last time with early 2010s leftovers. I checked the Billboard charts from Early 2015 and you're right the music was mid-2010s. Early 2015 however doesn't have Donald Trump on the spotlight.

I'd actually say that 2016 was the most quintessential year of the 2010's.

That was when 2010's fashion trends (eg - the undercut), and the political drama of this decade peaked.

I changed my answer too, it was actually late 2014 that actually was the last to have some noticeable early 10s holdovers especially (music wise) ,but what I was trying to say that those holdovers completely vanished in about late 2015

Numerically, 2015 is closer to the late 2010's. Culturally, it's definitely closer to the early 2010's by a large margin. In early-mid 2015, people in my middle school were still using Kik, Skype, and ooVoo to chat with each other, and hip-hop sounded a lot closer to 2012's hip-hop than 2017's hip-hop.

I could go on and on, but culturally, I'd say it's early-mid 2015 that felt like there were any real early 2010's holdovers. Late 2015 felt very different from early 2015.

I definitely agree that early 2015 felt different from late 2015, maybe it was because I was still in middle school in early 2015 and I enrolled in HS later that fall. Lol it’s funny that you mentioned those apps like Kik, Skype, ooVoo because people (including me) still uses those apps in early 2015, but somehow they quit using those apps in late 2015. Hip-hop also sounded more like 2012 than 2017, I’ve noticed that like there was no trace of today’s hip-hop (Emo rap and mumble rap) despite the fact that mumble rap was originated decades ago. Also Everyone still knew Donald Trump as a rich man with his own tv show and not someone that was running for president.

Not sure if I should ask this, but do you think that the mid 2010's felt more like the early 2010's or the late 2010's?

I always thought that 2014 and 2015 had more in common with the early 2010's whereas 2016 had more in common with the late 2010's.

I agree that 2014 to about mid 2015 has more in common with the early 10’s and anytime after August 2015 has more in common with the late 10’s. So I’m going to say that the mid 10’s has more in common with the early 10s than late 10s but you can start a thread on it and see what other people say about it.

I think the mid 2010s had a late 1990s feel to them, to be honest. The late 2010s feel more like the early 2010s, except for 2017 which felt like 2017, unique and unto itself.

Calm before the storm of 2016.... But actually come to think of it not that much really happened in 2015. 2014 and 2016 were much more eventful. 2014 had ebola, planes falling out of the sky etc and 2016 had the election and mass shootings (which pretty much continued in 2017).

I would personally put the line in the middle = July 2015 and afterwards is more like the late 2010s. 2016 for sure considering the numerical and cultural late 2010s started that year.

The latter part of 2015 also saw many Gen Z artists become big like Dua Lipa, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, The Weeknd. Before this no one really knew them.

I honestly didn’t know who all these people were until the 2015-2016 school year and July 2015 sounds reasonable too, anything before July 2015 felt like early 10’s and anything after felt like late 10’s

Early 2015 doesn't have Musical.lys, Post Malone, Cardi B, Donald Trump, New age Trap/Soundcloud, Dua Lipa, Snapchat filters, Dabbing, New Star Wars, Jojo Siwa, The Paul Brothers, Dank Memes.

Mid 2015 to Mid 2016 is still Mid-2010s with hints of late 2010s and is like a transitional time from the mid-2010s to the late-2010s. Somewhere around Fall 2016, the vibe felt completely late 2010s.

I agree with this.  That's not to say that 2016 still had an early '10s feel to it because it was long gone by then, but there were still echoes of the era present.  In my opinion the culture and overall zeitgeist has changed significantly since early 2016, a time when overall political momentum was still on the side of progressivism and equality and everyone thought Donald Trump was a joke candidate who would never win.

I always thought this song from 2016 sounded very early '10s and I think it would have been much more popular had it been released a few years earlier.  This is easily one of my favorite songs of the year.

I mean guys, "early 2010s style" songs are still produced to this date just like 70s glam rock or mid 90s eurodance are still being produced, the difference is that they no longer break into the mainstream, just like in 2015.
There's simply no point being made by linking those songs, unless it's just the "share with others" aspect :)
