Subject: Eras of the 2010s...

Written By: Early2010sGuy on 12/19/18 at 11:54 pm

I know the 2010s are not over yet, but I decided to just do a topic about it, inspired by a topic 'Eras of the 80s.'

Here's what I think it goes like:

January 1st, 2010 - Spring 2011: A late 2000s extension.
New culture like Angry Birds and the smartphone growth coming in, but culture is still in a transitional state.

Spring 2011 - Dec. 2012/Jan. 2013: The early 2010s.
Whilst late 2000s culture is still dominant, it also makes up with the early 2010s. Games like Club Penguin, and Call of Duty are still popular, but new games like Minecraft and Halo 4 become popular, and Call of Duty is on its last legs with Black Ops 2. The 7th Generation of consoles is still dominant, while the 8th Generation is still not relevant. Music wise, electropop is still very popular, although it becomes generic and slowly fades through this era, as it transitions to EDM with LMFAO, Calvin Harris, Avicii, etc. Dubstep is also popular with Skrillex. In Hip Hop, Nicki Minaj was the queen of hip hop, while 2000s rappers like Eminem, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne are still dominant. Pop megastars like Katy Perry and Rihanna dominate pop, as Taylor Swift starts becoming iconic, and Justin Bieber is still heavily hated, although he becomes better and better overtime. TV wise, new shows like Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead are coming in, while shows like the Big Bang theory, Glee, and How I met your mother are still dominant, as well as Disney Channel still being popular, with cartoons like Phineas and Ferb and Adventure time being popular among children. In movies, movies like Karate Kid, Hunger Games, and the Avengers are popular, while on the animated side, Toy Story 3, Brave, and Despicable Me are popular as well. Fashion is still mainly 80s-inspired neon themed, while Hipster and 90s-inspired grudge fashion are coming in. The economy is slowly recovering from the great recession. Smartphones finally destroy flip phones in popularity, and new social media like Instagram and Snapchat slowly grow over time, and operating systems like Windows 7 are popular in PC's, and iOS 4-6 with phones.

Spring 2013 - Summer 2016: The Mid 2010s.
This era is basically the core 2010s, and this era defines this decade with major developments. Video Games like Call of Duty and Runescape are no longer popular, as COD: Ghosts was a flop, but not only that, games like GTA 5, Battlefield 4, Fallout 4, and Overwatch are dominant games of the mid 2010s, with the breakthrough of 8th-Gen consoles in late 2013 with PS4 and XBOX One, although the 7th Generation consoles are still popular. Early 2010s games like Minecraft remain popular, despite raging little kids ruining the community. Mobile Games like Clash of Clans, Minion Rush, and Clash Royale are very popular, with notorious fads like Flappy Bird, Crossy Road, and Pokemon GO sadly lasting only a short amount of time. Electropop dies out, and Dubstep becomes generic and weak, as EDM and Trap EDM take over. Dance moves like the whip/nae-nae are popular. Trap emerges for the first time with Harlem Shake, and becomes mainstream in 2014 with Gucci Mane, Iggy Azalea, Rae Sremmurd, and Drake, which slowly dominates over time. EDM artists like Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Martin Garrix dominate EDM. Female Artists like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande become megastars of pop, as well as male artists like Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, and Ed Sheeran, although late 00s/early '10s artists like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Chris Brown remain popular, and starts adapting to mid 2010s music with trap elements. In TV, Game of Thrones and Walking Dead dominate television, and Disney Channel dies out while Netflix takes over, with shows like Orange is the New Black, Daredevil, and House of Cards being very popular. Marvel Comics Universe is at its peak with Age of Ultron, and movies like Interstellar, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Mad Max being big trends, as well as comedy like Sisters, Secret Intelligence, and Deadpool. Animated shows like Rick & Morty and Steven Universe being popular among Youth, as well as animated movies like Frozen, Zootopia, Big Hero 6, and Inside Out being big trends. Fashion grows out of neon, with Hipster and Grunge fashion taking over. The economy finally recovers, and Obama remains president although a big Trump/Clinton debate is ongoing in 2015-16. New Social Media like Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, and Musically become mainstream, with Facebook and Twitter declining in popularity. Because Vine takes over memes, the 2013 meme crash caused memes to be no longer popular in favor of Vine, with Internet personalities like the Paul brothers, Rickey Thompson, Christian Delgrosso, Nash Grier, Lele Pons, Alissa Violet, etc. becoming popular. Flat design becomes popular with the breakthrough of Windows 8, which iOS 7 took cues, significantly changing the smartphone experience, with Android taking inspiration from with the breakthrough of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Nexus 5.

Fall 2016 - Fall 2018: The Mid/Late 2010s.
Because of some developments that make this era feel vaguely newer, pop culture remains the same. Battle Royale games like Fortnite and Pubg dominate the gaming industry, in which Fortnite becomes the largest video game of the 2010s, with celebrities like Drake and Lil Yachty playing, with streamers like Ninja, FaZe Tfue, Daequan, Myth becoming popular. Mid 2010s games like GTA 5 and Overwatch remain popular, however, with thousands of players playing each day, but it becomes sophisticated. Besides Battle Royale, games like Battlefield 1 and COD WW2 FPS shooters are popular. 8th-Generation gaming becomes sophisticated with the PS4 Pro, XBOX One X, and the Nintendo Switch, although PC gaming becomes more popular than consoles. Trap is at the peak of its popularity, more popular than pop, with XXXTentacion, Migos, and 21 Savage, and Cardi B becoming the queen of rap, but the typical Taylor Swift/Ariana Grande model still shines, as well as Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and Shawn Mendes. Bands like Fifth Harmony and 1D (It disbanded in early/mid 2016 but still remained popular since then) are no longer popular, thus, making Camila Cabello a solo singer. However, pop is starting to go a different direction with Bazzi, Dua Lipa, etc. New EDM artists like Marshmello enter the mainstream, while mid-2010s EDM bands remain popular. Netflix shows like Stranger Things, 13 reasons why, and Riverdale are extremely popular, with movies like Black Panther, Thor Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 being popular, with animated movies like Moana. Social media like Instagram and Snapchat are at the peak of its popularity, but Vine shuts down, as memes become popular once again. Donald Trump becomes president.

Fall 2018 - ??: The late 2010s.
At this point, culture is starting to feel distinct from the core 2010s. Pop artists like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber have now faded in the background, with late 2010s artists like Dua Lipa, Halsey, and Post Malone taking over. Trap is still popular, but its already past its peak due to XXXTentacion’s death, with his last album getting released, same with 6ix9ine’s arrest, and Eminem’s Kamikaze, and mumble rap simply gets more backlash. Netflix shows like Daredevil have been cancelled, and new Disney remakes and movies like The Lion King, Aladdin, and Toy Story 4 are coming in, and other movies like Venom, Avengers End Game, and Star Wars Episode 9 are also coming in. Fortnite is still huge, but it becomes sophisticated that it becomes so hard to play as an average player, with good players taking over. New Games like Battlefield 5, Black Ops 4, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider are popular as well. Shows like Game of Thrones and Big Bang Theory are ending. The Social Media Bubble is ready to burst, starting with Facebook scandals, and the extreme criticism of YouTube Rewind 2018. Deaths like Stan Lee and Stephen Hillenburg also happened during this era, which can cause some small issues to Nickelodeon and Marvel companies. Recession 2.0 talks start as well.

Core 2010's = / = Mid 2010's

In my opinion, 2017 is still "core 2010's" despite being "late 2010's" because Generation Z did not really have an identity yet at the time and much of the politics was still very core 2010's.

I have a feeling that over time, the Late 2016 - Late 2018 era may be lumped with the core 2010's.

Fall 2018 - ??: The late 2010s.
At this point, culture starts to feel more distinct, as Eminem's Kamikaze causing Trap's popularity to drop, and mumble rap finally declines in popularity as well. This section is not finished, but I'm starting to notice something with pop culture going a different direction.

Uhm excuse me? It's time to maybe check the charts. Billboard for instance is still fully dominated by Trap and "SICKO MODE" was even a #1 hit two weeks ago.
Also it's highly bizarre to call Kamikaze anti-Trap when itself is very clearly influenced by that genre, and ended up being quickly forgotten and was ever temporarily popular due to a feud with another, more relevant rapper.

Well, How I noticed that late 2018 feels a little distinct is that there are new artists like Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, and Bazzi slowly becoming ‘megastars’ of pop, and the MCU is at its last stages with post-Infinity War. Also, Fortnite already feels sophisticated because Good players took over, and now skins really matter to prevent getting killed in an instant.

I think a decline is likely sometime in the early '20s, but 2018 was the biggest year for it, despite Kendrick Lamar declaring it dead in 2017.

Last Jedi was not popular it caused massive backlash and almost got their president fired by Bob Iger, It drew the lowest box office in Japan and cause Toy sales to plummet.
It also caused fatigue for Star Wars and is mostly responsible for the Han Solo movie flopping.



In the Fall 2018 section you can add


:fatigue of Facebook due to Scandals
: Social media peaking  (lowest usage in 7 years)
: Gucci reigns
: Decline of Hipster

Thanks guys for the suggestions! I only said that because people are already hating on mumble rap (Already has been since 2017, but Pewdiepie and Eminem used this term on their songs), and I already see we’re moving on from the core 2010s (2013-18) because of new games like Black Ops 4, Battlefield 5, RDR2, etc. And because of Infinity War, MCU is already heading to a different direction

But I can really see mumble rap going away soon, but I think Trap will still stay for another 6 months to 2 years or so, because despite Sicko Mode is still at the Top charts, it’s not a mumble rap track because its made by Drake and Travis Scott, and it’s not gonna stay in the top charts in 2019. Also, I heard a rumour of 9th Generation consoles coming in Q4 2019

And if trap was declining it wouldn't be because of Eminem. He doesn't even have that type of influence in 2018.

1) became bigger when Kanye switched in 2013/2014 with Yeezy, Adidas is still popular today
2)Color blocking got real big in 2013/2014, I can provide links if you want.

You still need to remove The Last Jedi tho, it was never popular and made toy sales plummet, and Bob Iger almost fired the person in charge of star wars, Its box office in Japan set a record for being one of the lowest ever.

I also feel like 90s nostalgia is moving away from those born in the 80s who were largely kids, to those born in the 70s who were young adults so would have been into the partying scene.

Here is how I break down the 2010s:

Transition from the late 2000s to early 2010s: Summer 2009 - Winter 2011.
While you have stuff like smartphones and hipster becoming popular, there are still some late 2000s leftovers. Electropop was at its highest peak with the likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, BEP, Kesha, and etc.

Early 2010s: Spring 2011 - Summer 2013.
It became clear that the 2000s were over at this time. Smartphones are sold more than dumb phones. Fashion went from neon 80s inspired clothing to earthy 90s hipster. Electropop was still around but it was declining with the rise of EDM and Indie. Minecraft became the king of games. Trap rap is rising but Kanye West, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj were still dominating rap. While Facebook and Twitter are on top of the social media industry, Instagram serves as the newcomer.

Transition from the early 2010s to mid 2010s: Fall 2013 - Spring 2014.
You are seeing new stuff like Vine, Snapchat, and Instagram rising in your eyes but that’s pretty much it. The mid 2010s was in its infant stage so it wasn’t clear if we were in the mid 2010s.

Mid 2010s: Summer 2014 - Summer 2016
This era felt very new from the early 2010s. Vine, Snapchat, and Instagram became very mainstream. Music had big changes. New acts like Meghan Trainor, Shawn Mendes, and Charlie Puth entering the spotlight. Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez changes their sound and had major peaks. Trap is rising very fast with the likes of Future, Young Thug, Rae Sremmurd, and other acts that got famous from Vine. EDM was at its peak with styles such as Tropical House and Trap topping the charts. The whipping/nae nae dance was extremely big. Hipster was at its peak. The politics became very divisive and still is today. Games like GTA 5, Minecraft, Clash of Clans, and Fallout 4 were the biggest games.

Transition from the mid 2010s to late 2010s: Fall 2016 - Spring 2017
At this point, Vine was shutting down forcing the Viners to migrate to YouTube. Music was also changing when XXXTentacion came in on Early 2017. Donald Trump was elected and culture started to change.

Late 2010s: Summer 2017 - Now
The culture we are currently in came from 2017. The Latin music scene is very big and became popular thanks to the success of Despacito. Clout/Lo-Fi/Emo Trap is the big thing right now with Lil Pump, Juice Wrld, Trippie Redd, Lil Skies, Lil Peep, and 6ix9ine. New acts like Cardi B, Post Malone, Khalid, Dua Lipa, Travis Scott, and Marshmello topping the charts along with “old” acts such as Ariana Grande. Nintendo Switch is very popular in gaming right now. Games like Fortnite became the next phenomenom in gaming. Netflix shows such as Stranger Things and Riverdale are currently the biggest shows right now.

I know the 2010s are not over yet, but I decided to just do a topic about it, inspired by a topic 'Eras of the 80s.'

Here's what I think it goes like:

January 1st, 2010 - Spring 2011: A late 2000s extension.
New culture like Angry Birds and the smartphone growth coming in, but culture is still in a transitional state.

Spring 2011 - Dec. 2012/Jan. 2013: The early 2010s.
Whilst late 2000s culture is still dominant, it also makes up with the early 2010s. Games like Club Penguin, and Call of Duty are still popular, but new games like Minecraft and Halo 4 become popular, and Call of Duty is on its last legs with Black Ops 2. The 7th Generation of consoles is still dominant, while the 8th Generation is still not relevant. Music wise, electropop is still very popular, although it becomes generic and slowly fades through this era, as it transitions to EDM with LMFAO, Calvin Harris, Avicii, etc. Dubstep is also popular with Skrillex. In Hip Hop, Nicki Minaj was the queen of hip hop, while 2000s rappers like Eminem, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne are still dominant. Pop megastars like Katy Perry and Rihanna dominate pop, as Taylor Swift starts becoming iconic, and Justin Bieber is still heavily hated, although he becomes better and better overtime. TV wise, new shows like Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead are coming in, while shows like the Big Bang theory, Glee, and How I met your mother are still dominant, as well as Disney Channel still being popular, with cartoons like Phineas and Ferb and Adventure time being popular among children. In movies, movies like Karate Kid, Hunger Games, and the Avengers are popular, while on the animated side, Toy Story 3, Brave, and Despicable Me are popular as well. Fashion is still mainly 80s-inspired neon themed, while Hipster and 90s-inspired grudge fashion are coming in. The economy is slowly recovering from the great recession. Smartphones finally destroy flip phones in popularity, and new social media like Instagram and Snapchat slowly grow over time, and operating systems like Windows 7 are popular in PC's, and iOS 4-6 with phones.

Spring 2013 - Summer 2016: The Mid 2010s.
This era is basically the core 2010s, and this era defines this decade with major developments. Video Games like Call of Duty and Runescape are no longer popular, as COD: Ghosts was a flop, but not only that, games like GTA 5, Battlefield 4, Fallout 4, and Overwatch are dominant games of the mid 2010s, with the breakthrough of 8th-Gen consoles in late 2013 with PS4 and XBOX One, although the 7th Generation consoles are still popular. Early 2010s games like Minecraft remain popular, despite raging little kids ruining the community. Mobile Games like Clash of Clans, Minion Rush, and Clash Royale are very popular, with notorious fads like Flappy Bird, Crossy Road, and Pokemon GO sadly lasting only a short amount of time. Electropop dies out, and Dubstep becomes generic and weak, as EDM and Trap EDM take over. Dance moves like the whip/nae-nae are popular. Trap emerges for the first time with Harlem Shake, and becomes mainstream in 2014 with Gucci Mane, Iggy Azalea, Rae Sremmurd, and Drake, which slowly dominates over time. EDM artists like Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Martin Garrix dominate EDM. Female Artists like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande become megastars of pop, as well as male artists like Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, and Ed Sheeran, although late 00s/early '10s artists like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Chris Brown remain popular, and starts adapting to mid 2010s music with trap elements. In TV, Game of Thrones and Walking Dead dominate television, and Disney Channel dies out while Netflix takes over, with shows like Orange is the New Black, Daredevil, and House of Cards being very popular. Marvel Comics Universe is at its peak with Age of Ultron, and movies like Interstellar, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Mad Max being big trends, as well as comedy like Sisters, Secret Intelligence, and Deadpool. Animated shows like Rick & Morty and Steven Universe being popular among Youth, as well as animated movies like Frozen, Zootopia, Big Hero 6, and Inside Out being big trends. Fashion grows out of neon, with Hipster and Grunge fashion taking over. The economy finally recovers, and Obama remains president although a big Trump/Clinton debate is ongoing in 2015-16. New Social Media like Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, and Musically become mainstream, with Facebook and Twitter declining in popularity. Because Vine takes over memes, the 2013 meme crash caused memes to be no longer popular in favor of Vine, with Internet personalities like the Paul brothers, Rickey Thompson, Christian Delgrosso, Nash Grier, Lele Pons, Alissa Violet, etc. becoming popular. Flat design becomes popular with the breakthrough of Windows 8, which iOS 7 took cues, significantly changing the smartphone experience, with Android taking inspiration from with the breakthrough of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Nexus 5.

Fall 2016 - Fall 2018: The Mid/Late 2010s.
Because of some developments that make this era feel vaguely newer, pop culture remains the same. Battle Royale games like Fortnite and Pubg dominate the gaming industry, in which Fortnite becomes the largest video game of the 2010s, with celebrities like Drake and Lil Yachty playing, with streamers like Ninja, FaZe Tfue, Daequan, Myth becoming popular. Mid 2010s games like GTA 5 and Overwatch remain popular, however, with thousands of players playing each day, but it becomes sophisticated. Besides Battle Royale, games like Battlefield 1 and COD WW2 FPS shooters are popular. 8th-Generation gaming becomes sophisticated with the PS4 Pro, XBOX One X, and the Nintendo Switch, although PC gaming becomes more popular than consoles. Trap is at the peak of its popularity, more popular than pop, with XXXTentacion, Migos, and 21 Savage, and Cardi B becoming the queen of rap, but the typical Taylor Swift/Ariana Grande model still shines, as well as Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and Shawn Mendes. Bands like Fifth Harmony and 1D (It disbanded in early/mid 2016 but still remained popular since then) are no longer popular, thus, making Camila Cabello a solo singer. However, pop is starting to go a different direction with Bazzi, Dua Lipa, etc. New EDM artists like Marshmello enter the mainstream, while mid-2010s EDM bands remain popular. Netflix shows like Stranger Things, 13 reasons why, and Riverdale are extremely popular, with movies like The Last Jedi, Thor Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 being popular, with animated movies like Moana. Social media like Instagram and Snapchat are at the peak of its popularity, but Vine shuts down, as memes become popular once again. Donald Trump becomes president.

Fall 2018 - ??: The late 2010s.
At this point, culture starts to feel more distinct, as Eminem's Kamikaze causing Trap's popularity to drop, and mumble rap finally declines in popularity as well. This section is not finished, but I'm starting to notice something with pop culture going a different direction.

The bland music and the gendered fashion of the 2010s started even during 2010 or a bit earlier, but yes, those things dominated from around 2013. I'm still bitter to this day and I want to be.

@mc98 Great breakdown!

Anyway, for Late 2018 till maybe 2020, Trap is still popular and all, but I just don’t see it making it in 2020, and the with death of XXXTentacion, his last album is getting released. Besides games like Battlefield 5 and Black Ops 4, there’s also Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4, and AC Odessey. Marvel is releasing another movie in the MCU after the effects of Infinity War, and Star Wars Episode IX is getting released. Ugly Sweater contests are growing in popularity. Dua Lipa, Bazzi, and Billie Eilish are now considered predominant in the music industry, and Disney 2019 remakes like Lion King, Aladdin, and Toy Story 4 are getting released too, with shows like Star Wars Rebels, Adventure Time, Daredevil are either ending or cancelled.

2016 - present - Late 2010s - complete darkness



You can also divide it in two:

2010 - 2015 - High tech era

2015 - present - Donald Trump era



And lastly you can put all of the core 2010s years together:

2011 - 2018 - The Core 2010s era - Game of Thrones, Hipsters, Trap music, EDM, indie music, etc.

That's odd (2013 is an odd number too lmao), but I felt like 2013-2016 are in 1 era, because 2013 and 2016 shared a lot of similarities like Vine, GTA 5, 8th-Gen consoles, IG and Snapchat, Netflix over Disney Channel, and music artists like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, etc. Sure, Dubstep lasted from 2011-Mid 2014, but that's just one part. But also, 2013 still felt somewhat like 2010, with Facebook peaking in popularity, last electropop traces (Early 2013), Dubstep, and iOS 6. I'd say 2013 is a transitional year but the reason I put 2013 to the 2013-16 era is because new culture is gradually overshadowing late 2000s/early 2010s culture, and of course, you round half forward.

We can divide the 2010s but I think the 2010s were a fairly consistent decade overall, more than the 2000s were. It reminds me of the 1980s in some ways, a clear identity all throughout and how a lot of the aesthetics of this decade are similar to the 1980s. I say this pop culturally speaking, I know politics-wise it it was very changeful.

Yeah, thanks for the suggestions of removing the ‘Last Jedi’ part. It was popular, but it was disappointing to many, but it somehow still made it on the cinemas with lots of excited people. That was my reasoning. But yeah, I also noticed that Solo wasn’t popular, and hopefully, in the Late 2018 to Maybe 2021 part that Star Wars Episode 9 will be successful, and cultural elements like the New Avengers movie coming in 2019 is a sign of more late 2010s culture.

The Early 2010s still had a decent cultural impact in Early to Mid 2013, but the transition from the early 2010s to the mid 2010s is already happening, because Taylor Swift was slowly growing in popularity in Late 2012-2013, and Ariana Grande hit the top charts. The 7th Generation of consoles, again, was still dominant, but the breakthrough of the PS4 and Xbox One release followed through, and GTA 5 and Bioshock Infinite is popular. Vine slowly grew in popularity, and Mid 2010s YouTubers like Jenna Marbles, Pewdiepie, Casey Neistat, Jacksepticeye, etc. kind of changed the YouTube game in Mid 2013. I mentioned this a lot of times already, but Trap started in February 2013 with Harlem Shake, in which DJ Snake took inspiration to make Turn down for what in late 2013. I’d say Late 2013 is when the Mid 2010s vibe is fully developed, but I put the transitional part in because it’s already overshadowing Early 2010s culture.

Same with the Late 2018 transition. The Mid/Late 2010s vibe (Late 2016 to Late 2018) is still ongoing, but we’re already starting to move on from the core 2010s, right at the edge here, with the new movies coming out, and the Social Media bubble might burst anytime soon in Late 2019/Early 2020. Trap is out of it’s peak at this point, but it’s still huge, just don’t see it lasting any longer thanks to 6ix9ine’s arrest, XXXTentacion’s death and last album, Eminem’s Kamikaze, and most of all, Lo-fi infiltrating hip hop, which might have an impact on Trap music. Mumble rap is getting more and more hate as well. Fortnite is still big and all, but it becomes more sophisticated because now good players and tryhards have taken over, making it almost impossible to win if you’re only average at the game. Call of Duty is becoming popular again with Black Ops 4, and Battlefield 5 is one of the most popular games right now, besides just Fortnite. I bet by 2020, by the next election, Donald Trump will finally step down as president, which might also result in another cultural transition, with the Late 2010s/Early 2020s vibe remaining. Ariana Grande is still dominant, but Dua Lipa and Halsey are already catching up, while artists like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Chris Brown are off the charts without question. Even if they made new songs, it’s only gonna be popular for a week and disappear. Taylor Swift on the other hand, is starting to decline from the top charts, but we’ll see when she releases another album, but Dua Lipa would be a megastar by then. Same goes with Shawn Mendes and Ed Sheeran, in which they were decently popular in mid 2018, but just looking at the mid 2010s section, they were consistently popular every year from 2013-18, but now it doesn’t seem to be the case. Even XXXTentacion’s new album didn’t last a while on Billboard Hot 100, and 6ix9ine is pretty much not gonna grow in popularity thanks to his arrest.

I wish they released the new Star Wars episodes 3 years like they did with Episodes 4, 5, and 6; and with 1, 2, 3. Now it throws off the consistency and parallels. It was good they released Episode 7 in 2015 to be parallel with the release of Episode 1 in 1999. However, they should have released Episode 8 and 9 in 2018 and 2021 respectively. I guess Disney changed things when they bought the rights, along with releasing them during the holiday season instead of early summer.

It was good they released Episode 7 in 2015 to be parallel with the release of Episode 1 in 1999. However, they should have released Episode 8 and 9 in 2018 and 2021 respectively. I guess Disney changed things when they bought the rights, along with releasing them during the holiday season instead of early summer.


Agreed. They should’ve made the storyline better and more fun in The Last Jedi, but there weren’t many funny parts besides the porgs, and this Rose Tico b**** is annoying. I hope Star Wars 9 will be more successful

Yeah, thanks for the suggestions of removing the ‘Last Jedi’ part. It was popular, but it was disappointing to many, but it somehow still made it on the cinemas with lots of excited people. That was my reasoning. But yeah, I also noticed that Solo wasn’t popular, and hopefully, in the Late 2018 to Maybe 2021 part that Star Wars Episode 9 will be successful, and cultural elements like the New Avengers movie coming in 2019 is a sign of more late 2010s culture.

The Early 2010s still had a decent cultural impact in Early to Mid 2013, but the transition from the early 2010s to the mid 2010s is already happening, because Taylor Swift was slowly growing in popularity in Late 2012-2013, and Ariana Grande hit the top charts. The 7th Generation of consoles, again, was still dominant, but the breakthrough of the PS4 and Xbox One release followed through, and GTA 5 and Bioshock Infinite is popular. Vine slowly grew in popularity, and Mid 2010s YouTubers like Jenna Marbles, Pewdiepie, Casey Neistat, Jacksepticeye, etc. kind of changed the YouTube game in Mid 2013. I mentioned this a lot of times already, but Trap started in February 2013 with Harlem Shake, in which DJ Snake took inspiration to make Turn down for what in late 2013. I’d say Late 2013 is when the Mid 2010s vibe is fully developed, but I put the transitional part in because it’s already overshadowing Early 2010s culture.

Same with the Late 2018 transition. The Mid/Late 2010s vibe (Late 2016 to Late 2018) is still ongoing, but we’re already starting to move on from the core 2010s, right at the edge here, with the new movies coming out, and the Social Media bubble might burst anytime soon in Late 2019/Early 2020. Trap is out of it’s peak at this point, but it’s still huge, just don’t see it lasting any longer thanks to 6ix9ine’s arrest, XXXTentacion’s death and last album, Eminem’s Kamikaze, and most of all, Lo-fi infiltrating hip hop, which might have an impact on Trap music. Mumble rap is getting more and more hate as well. Fortnite is still big and all, but it becomes more sophisticated because now good players and tryhards have taken over, making it almost impossible to win if you’re only average at the game. Call of Duty is becoming popular again with Black Ops 4, and Battlefield 5 is one of the most popular games right now, besides just Fortnite. I bet by 2020, by the next election, Donald Trump will finally step down as president, which might also result in another cultural transition, with the Late 2010s/Early 2020s vibe remaining. Ariana Grande is still dominant, but Dua Lipa and Halsey are already catching up, while artists like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Chris Brown are off the charts without question. Even if they made new songs, it’s only gonna be popular for a week and disappear. Taylor Swift on the other hand, is starting to decline from the top charts, but we’ll see when she releases another album, but Dua Lipa would be a megastar by then. Same goes with Shawn Mendes and Ed Sheeran, in which they were decently popular in mid 2018, but just looking at the mid 2010s section, they were consistently popular every year from 2013-18, but now it doesn’t seem to be the case. Even XXXTentacion’s new album didn’t last a while on Billboard Hot 100, and 6ix9ine is pretty much not gonna grow in popularity thanks to his arrest.


Last Jedi was not popular once again lol It got the lowest box office numbers in Japan, it killed Star wars toy sales & almost made Bob Iger ceo of Disney fire head of Star Wars, any movie is going to have buzz going into it, look at 2007's Spiderman 3, everyone was hyped for this the first week, but then the week after was panned by everyone.


Last Jedi was so unpopular that the Han Solo movie that came out suffered disappointing sales and was considered a flop.
Even Mark Hamil himself said he did not like Last Jedi.



100% spot on with Social Media burst, the growth of social media usage has gone down 7%, the first time this has ever happened.
Facebook we already know with the cambridge analytical scandal, Social media peaked awhile ago, everything now is try hard people
desperate for likes, desperate for VENMO cash payments, anything for anything, people are noticing how cringe it is, it's like social media
is no longer cool.

I know you have apps like Tik TOK but it's the same nonsense that is emptyness, has no real purpose


Dua Lipa has no personality and no hits beyond 1 single that lasted like #12 for a week.

If 2008-2012 is one pop cultural era then you could also argue that 2012 was the late 2000s. It makes just as much sense as saying 2008 is early 2010s.

Or alternatively it would be like saying 1999 (or 1998) is the early 2000s just because it's grouped with 2000/2001 as the Y2K era.

I think getting into arguments about whether a certain year at the beginning or end of a decade is more like the previous/next decade just makes things needlessly complicated. 2009 is late 2000s, 2010 is early 2010s. Isn't that good enough?

it is, most of the stuff that came out in 2008 defined  2009 2010 2011 and 2012




Most of 1999's things had the door closed on them in 2001, so the only early 2000s year 1999 would be would be 2000.

Now let’s think out of the box, we should name more eras rather than just calling it Early 2010s or Late 2000s, it seems a bit generic. Most eras were named before 1945, like World War 1 (1914-1918), the roaring 20s (1920-1929), the Great Depression (1929-1939), World War II (1939-1945), and the Y2K era (1997-2001). I think we should call 2008-2012 something else rather than Late 2000s/Early 2010s, because it sounds a bit generic and confusing, because if people look back, people might think that 2010-12 songs are released in the late 2000s, or 2008-09 songs released in the 2010s. What should we call this era?

Hum, lots of people already call them "Electropop era". But honestly there's no problem with calling eras straightforwardly. It's just seems less confusing that way. World War I, Great Depression and WWII aren't eras what the heck. They're historical tragic events that have absolutely nothing to do with how pop culture named them.

Late 2008- mid 2012 was the Electropop era
its spans late 2000s and a few early 2010s years



The hipster era is
Late 2008 (When Urban Outfitters & American Apparel got popular)
to 2017 when it declined. The whole hipster era started off with bands like
crystal castles (Purple hoodies and more AA clothing, to more Folk inspired clothing later on)



2011-2012  is around the time thrift shop got popular the culture became dominant  as well as faux indie
acts such as Gotye, Black Keys, Mumford & Sons. The era was a slow burn that took awhile to really spread.
Its apex was in 2015 clearly when commercials were using fake hipster sounding foot stomp jingles.

The hipster era has been so far the longest era ever, beating Grunge, Gangsta rap & even Emo/pop punk.

Again, 2013 has a fair amount of differences from 2018, but the overall themes remain the same. Smartphones, GTA 5 (Still popular thanks to GTA online), Steven Universe, Rick and Morty, Trap (Despite they sound completely different, trap is still trap), IG and Snapchat, EDM (Again, sounds different but EDM is still EDM), Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, etc.

EDM and Smartphones dominated since 2011. Plus, despite sounding different, Trap was around in the late 2000s, you can hear influences of Trap in songs like “Turn My Swag On”. Taylor Swift was popular since the late 00s and Justin Bieber since 2009.

But are Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift still big in late 2018?  I see both artists in their period of declining relevance.  Yes, they are still around and still getting hits but they aren't topping the charts anymore and most see them as yesterday's news.

They aren’t big now because we haven’t heard new music from them in a while. What I am saying is that how can JB and TS be lumped in the “2013-2018” era when they were already popular in the late 00s/early 10s.

I agree. Even if they are still gonna be popular in 2019 or not, new artists like Dua Lipa, Bazzi, Post Malone, and probably Billie Eilish would’ve already took over. I also notice Taylor Swift declining when she makes less songs compared to 2012-17. Same with JB, the last time I heard him was from this flopped song “No Brainer.” We’ll see, I’m not sure, it’s just that pop music already ushered in a new generation with those artists I mentioned. I think 2013-2018 should be called the Digital Age, because of Social Media, Virtual Reality, Voice assistants, EDM, Hoverboards (Sadly flopped but some people still use them), smartwatches, etc. 2000s was also digital, but less advanced, and the 2010s will be remembered for being the Digital generation.

Also, Halsey is more on the top 10 side now, instead of Taylor Swift, because Taylor’s best days was 2012 to Early 2018, and you can notice her popularity taking over since late 2016. Post Malone, both an R&B/Trap and Pop singer, has been big since mid 2017, and he’s already taking over. Bazzi, not really big, but I bet he’ll grow more in popularity. If you’re saying Dua Lipa is not that popular, that’s bizarre. sure, she hasn’t topped the charts with a number 1 hit, but she’s just rising in popularity since late 2017, and she has had a few hits in the top 10 list, and that’s just gonna increase, when she makes more songs. Billie Eilish, well, she had a decent amount of songs that were on Billboard Hot 100, but they sadly flopped after a month or 2, but I hope she’ll get more popular. Pretty much, Posty, Halsey, and Lipa are the 3 main popular artists I mentioned for the Late 2010s era, and they’ll just grow in popularity til they become pop megastars.

youtube views, streams facebook likes can be bought relatively cheaply, thats why there was twitter purge
a few months ago

Having said that that does not mean Billie does not get views,however she is sort of an industry plant
her uncle works at the label and she was moonlit as an unsigned indie artist for the past 2 years.
Everyone that lives in LA knows this lmao

A new thing teams are doing is making fake accounts on websites like PopJustice & Reddit's Popheads
and naming their account the stan name of their artist and spamming the site with text such as


"OMG sis have you heard the new Billie Song its going to be a smash"

In order to gain hype, its any easy way to push an artist fast,while making it look like its popularity is organic.
A few PR teams were caught on craigslist hiring "street teamers" to post on Popjustice to hype an artists debut.


Back in the original TRL days, fans were paid to stand outside with signs of lesser known artists,to make it look
like they had a fanbase, this was only for people that the label was just starting to push and did not apply to AAA
artists such as Britney or Justin. It was very obvious when you saw an artist like Ryan Cabrera and someone outside
had a huge official 30X30 sign with release date that looked like it came from the record labels office.
Most of this was done on the artists website via email newsletters and some of it was done via craigslist type websites.

Core 2010s don't end until the final episode of Game of Thrones airs this year in May. When that happens, the core 2010s will be officially over. Remember mid and core are different. Mid 2010s ended a long time ago in late 2015/early 2016, but core 2010s started in 2011 and is mostly done now but the final nail in the coffin for the core 2010s will be the GoT finale (the series started in 2011 too). But it's safe to say it's pretty much done especially since hipsters aren't in anymore. But officially it's over once Game of Thrones ends.

That does not mean that the core 2010s is still ongoing. A single core 2010s show still being ran until maybe like 2023 doesn’t mean the core 2010s are still ongoing. Let’s take the 80s for example. Miami Vice was a popular core 80s show in 1984-1990, and the core 80s were Late 1983 to Mid 1988, and despite Miami Vice still running since then, the core 80s are pretty much over because it feels like the 90s since Late 1988 with New Jack swing, hip hop, Teenage mutant ninja turtles, Paula Abdul and Bobby Brown, etc. Same goes with the 90s, which the core era was around 1991 to 1998. Friends was a show that was PURE 90s, and it ran all the way to 2004. Does that mean that a show from a core decade that is still ongoing after a decade’s prime will keep the core decade ongoing? Probably not. It’s the feeling, and the quantity of culture ranging from Music, books, Video Games, to TV.
