Subject: What year did the 2010's vibe become dominant?

Written By: thisismelemon on 08/10/19 at 2:27 pm

For me 2011 is the first year to feel more 10's than 00's


EDIT:

Actually here is my take on things, i consider the late 00's - early 10's (2008-2012) to be one era,
for which 2008 and 2009 lean more 00's , 2010 is kinda 50/50, and 2011 and 2012  lean more 10's

What do you guys think?

2011 sounds right.

Definitely 2011.

I'd say 2011. 2010, while being very 10s influenced, felt too much like the late 00s. 2011 is when the 10s influence started to take over.

For me it was the second half of 2009. I remember it very well, things were getting interesting. iPhones, Lady Gaga, Twitter, Facebook, Obama, HDTVs, Recession etc.

I was going to argue against 2011, but it did have:

- Occupy Wall Street
- The hipsters really coming into the mainstream
- Electropop overtaking emo as the dominant sound on the radio
- The MCU in full swing
- The takeover of the Congress by Republicans, setting the tone for American politics for the remainder of the decade
- The release of Supergiant's Bastion, also marking the beginning of indie developers as the innovative force in computer gaming

So yeah, that's my answer as well.

-Minecraft became popular
-EDM and Indie music was played on the radio.
-Smartphones starting to become a full force in our culture.

I'd say late 2011 was when the 2010s vibe dominated over late 2000s culture. EDM slowly took over Electropop with LMFAO, David Guetta, Zedd, Avicii, etc. YouTubers like Ryan Higa, Smosh, and Ray William Johnson became more pronounced, Skyrim came out, Minecraft and Roblox enter the mainstream, COD Modern Warfare 3 gets released, Wii U gets a teaser, Instagram grows in popularity, Dubstep becomes popular, Hipster and Alternative music becomes popular with Foster The People, Adele, and Gotye, and more! It was a really fun time when I first in Canada from Dubai, although Late 2000s culture was still popular. 2010 still felt very late 2000s, but it was a 50/50.

If we talk about the core 2010s vibe, I'd say late 2013. iOS 7 gets released, iPhone 5S and 5C gains steam, Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine takes over Facebook, The Harlem Shake dance becomes stale as the Nae Nae took over, Early Trap music, DJ Mustard beats, Hipster fashion, 90s fashion, EDM gets watered down with Turn Down For What and Animals, Miley Cyrus' new twerk phase gets further amplified, PS4 and Xbox One gets released, Core 2 systems become less capable for gaming, Tomb Raider 2013, House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, and Netflix takes over Disney Channel within Teens. It was also a fun movement, but it was confusing at the same time especially the change was rapid, entering 4th grade. This is when the real Core or Mid 2010s started. Early 2010s culture was still popular but they were on the way out. Late 2000s culture fades in the background.

I'd say 2008-2009, but in retrospect I think 2008-2013 may be seen as a "what-if" "what the whole 2010s could've been" type era, similar to how Jordan mentioned 1998-2003 as being a "what-if" for the 2000s.

The reason for this is that I'm now noticing more and more people online say "2010-2013 was basically just a continuation of the 2000s culture". Which I find ironic since people in 2015 were saying the exact opposite, that the 2010s culture arguably "started early" in 2008-2009, with electropop, Obama, Recession, iPhones, Facebook, HDTV, James Cameron's Avatar, etc.


I still feel that way, to be honest. 2009 is barely 2000s. 2010 is nakedly 2010s, it has worlds more in common with 2015 than 2005. There are some 2000s holdouts as you would expect, but they are not the face of that year, if that makes any sense.

I would say the spring of 2011 was when 2010s vibe became dominant. Late 2009 - Winter 2010/2011 felt like it's own era, which wasn't very 00s or 10s. Also, I would like to point out that Emojis and Siri were added to the iPhone in Oct. 2011. Any sign of late 00s culture was dead by early 2014.

Both can be true. To quote myself:

his is why I think the old "is 2008 an 00's year or 10's year" debate is kinda pointless. It was a little bit of both. The transition was clearly happening, helped along by the Great Recession and the arrival of "Hope and Change," but of course we weren't all going to wake up the next day and the emos were going to be replaced by hipsters. That takes time, which is why you see prominent emo albums all the way up to summer 2013 but also had the first big hipster albums as early on as 2009.

Disclaimer: This is not me doing decadeology so much as bemoaning why decadeology, especially about this year, is stupid.

Hipsters took off in 2009 and 2010 and peaked in 2011. If you use Google Trends and set the country to USA, this can be observed. (I remember in another thread somebody did something similar and it showed that 2015 was the peak of hipster, but that was international Google trends, which can be biased by, say, someone in a non-English speaking country searching the definition of the word "hipster").

https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=Hipster (the graph spikes in May 2009 and peaks in October 2011).

Interestingly, the search term for hipster spiked in Canada in the summer of 2008 and peaked in the autumn of 2012, which jives more with my experience. :P

Late 2008 when Obama got elected. That was when it became more 2010s than late 2000s. But you can definitely say there were late 2000s leftovers after that. But by this point the "classic" and real 2000s were long gone (which ended back in '06).

I don't understand how core 2000s culture would be from 2000-05. You never explain how 2000 is a core 2000s year. Like go in depth with it.

Because the year 2000 is a year that defines the 2000s a lot. Y2K stuff is all part of 2000s culture, not '90s. The 2000s are defined by Y2K. 2000s culture started in 1999.

2002-2009 is not Y2K culture. 2000 is not core 2000s, culturally speaking it has NOTHING in common with 2005.

2000 IS Y2K culture and it defines the 2000s the most. Yes 2000 is core 2000s. And when I think of the 2000s I think of Y2K. And this is my opinion.

The 2000s were defined by the mid-2000s

No they weren't. The 2000s were defined by the early 2000s the most.

The Y2K era is it's own era. Y2K and Core 2000s aren't the same thing, and the core 2000s (2003-2008) is what defined 2000s culture, not 1998 to 2000.

Well I disagree because I believe the Y2K era is what defines the 2000s the most. The late 2000s had a lack of identity.
