Subject: Why so many people on this site hate the 2010s?

Written By: muppethammer26 on 01/02/20 at 8:23 pm

I heard a lot of people on this site like to bash the 2010s. In my opinion, I think the 2010s are an OK decade for me. Why there’s so much hatred for the 2010s on this site compared to the other decades?

- The music sounds awful to me - it sounds too random unlike how I think the 2000s did music. I guess I also lament the death of rock, metal and pop punk this decade.

- Even if I found music I liked, they're mostly on streaming services only where the songs can't be guaranteed to stay forever even if you pay subscription fees and even if you download them offline. There's a technology called DRM that's making this happen.

- The fashion looks too gender conforming in my eyes - you may hear about the LGBT community talking about gender a lot this decade and a lot about attack helicopter jokes, but I feel like people dress in a more gender conforming way than they did in the past - compare this especially with the 70s and 80s. I think at least it's down to the hair, but I expected better from an LGBT-friendly decade.

-Because even school facilities have started to expect young people to have smartphones, perhaps just to keep them dependent on all the misinformation out there.

-Because I figured out during that decade that I was gay, but every guy I saw who wasn't straight was a fugly jock. In the few months I had Grindr, our 'tolerant' community talked S#!T to me because I didn't like uggos. They actually sent vitriol to me because I liked other Emos who, in particular, were long-haired. *sigh* my lord...
  - Don't mistake me for saying all Emo guys are gay because most of the emo guys I saw online are straight.

-All the music I heard on the radio was TERRIBLE, with very few exceptions.

-It was full of memes on the Internet which took very little creativity to make. I might have been able to tolerate it if there otherwise were more macroimages, i. e. variety in the pictures, than there really were.

-Increasing pollution.

-This is more on a personal note, but twice during the decade I was almost arrested unjustifiably.

Soon before the '20s rolled around, I definitely played 'Perfect' by Simple Plan so that things in the song got intense as the fireworks cracked. If things did not turn around for my counterculture, I would at least be part of a backlash by playing something other than rap at a loud volume.

Not a fan of the 90s curtain hair, sorry. At best I can tolerate it in Dragon Ball (Z) and 90s films, just not on people.

I find the 2010s to be quite decent overall in pop culture. I personally disliked the late 2010s due to the stagnant and uninteresting mainstream music scene, hostile political atmosphere, and Hollywood's over-reliance on reboots, remakes, and sequels (the entire decade had these, but they were more widespread in the later half of the decade). Everything (except maybe for the memes) just felt boring and tame to me, and I can't see myself reminiscing on years like 2018 and go, "Wow! This year was awesome! It definitely didn't have lackluster popular music, oversaturated superhero movies and reboots, and overrated battle royale games!"

But I did enjoy the early-mid 2010s a lot, so I'll definitely remember them with great hindsight.

Hating the 2010s make a whole lot of darn sense.

The 2010s decade turn out to sucked so much, there is a number of reasons why people hate the decade all together.

Here is the reason why the 2010s sucked so bad.

Lacked of any good TV/Commercials/Movies/Music/News

Lacked of anymore common sense in our society

Nobody cares about anybody anymore, the homeless problem is getting worst and worst.

The rich keep getting rich, while the poor keep getting poorer.

The price of renting is way too over price, it is really hard to even find a place to live.

I don't know why anybody in their right mind would defend the 2010s, because it is not a good decade at all.

I’ve noticed some common trends with people that often hate on the 2010’s. They’re usually at least two of these:

-90’s or 2000’s kid
-Low self-esteem
-Dissatisfaction with their personal life
-Overly nostalgic
-Refusal to listen to new music and try new things
-Has a hard time living in the present

Spot on. Just from reading all the posts it's very obvious that it "sounds like a you problem" rather than with the decade itself.

Don't get me wrong, there are many valid criticisms of the 2010s to be had, but it's funny when they say "there are no good TV shows, no good movies, no good music blah blah blah", and you point them in the direction where they can find good media (because trust me there is A LOT), they refuse to listen. That's when you know they're not being entirely sincere.

The '90s/'00s kid is also a big one. Many people here REFUSE to acknowledge they were kids in a certain era, and as such they effectively have no memory of what it was like to be an adult in that era, and also that they have rose coloured glasses on. I honestly don't think you've really experienced a decade unless you were 15 and above in it. Other than that, your testimony on how "chill laid back" is as reliable as someone was 4 at the end of the decade.

There are a variety of reasons. It's that they didn't like the style of music. It could be they despised the direction of films being mainly superhero or dramas. Maybe they loathed how political everything was from abortion to LGBT. It's not always personal motives.

I think it's a shame the whole decade gets as much hate as it does, the early 2010s were actually kinda decent looking back, even though I hated it at the time. Sadly, I think the awful politics from 2016 onwards will always cast a dark shadow over the whole period

Late 2000s/early 10s culture was better imo than late 2010s. I remember fondly the popularity of Heidi the possum, YouTube poop videos of Sonix or Dexter's Lab Animations, Rebbecah Black's Friday notoriety, Disney chanel in 2006-2013 was great! I hate trap music and the only late 10's song I like is "Djadja". I think Rihanna sounded better in Diamonds/Monster era than in B/tch better have my money.

I don't like the direction social media went in. When all the social media sites we know of first started they were simple to use, then they think they need to change things that don't need monumental changes and it all goes downhill. I don't think the phone obsession will go away since the invention of phones you could do everything with like a handheld computer. It's convenient after all. Now it's just a matter of what new apps and media will be invented because let's face it, the popular ones have gotten so stale.


The 2010s has been a garbage of a decade and it didn't have anything worth liking or talking about.

10s culture was really awful and the clothes of the decade weren't all that great or even that interesting.

Specifically what culture and what clothing for example? I will say it didn't end on a happy note as far as I can tell. Ten years is a long time to find nothing good at all at some point though. I discovered quite a bit of new things I now like in the past decade, despite there being plenty of things I wasn't a fan of.


There are a variety of reasons. It's that they didn't like the style of music. It could be they despised the direction of films being mainly superhero or dramas. Maybe they loathed how political everything was from abortion to LGBT. It's not always personal motives.

Music always evolves, but it felt like every year the amount of new songs and variety played on the radio just dwindled down to a loop of the same five songs over and over again, with something different thrown in now and then, at least where I am.  It's like they don't care anymore so that can really influence your perspective if you don't look any further. There have been some real gems as far as film, games, and songs, it's just that the most popular of it that's thrown in our faces the most is the stuff that's rather "eh."

It's definitely debatable. Social media has had its ups & downs on our society and culture. A perfect blend of positives and negatives. It's easy for a Boomer to easily criticize and find everything negative to say about social media, while it's easy for a Zoomer to easily praise and find everything positive to say about social media, but we have to break down all the pieces from an unbiased view point and see what social media has done to our pop culture and our everyday lives the past decade & a half or so. In the grand scheme of things overall (IMO), I agree more with Slowpoke here. Social media affects nearly every industry today, even industries we might not even follow. News reporters, sports, businesses, artists, actors, school teachers & students, politics, and so forth. Social media can save someone's life at the split second, can give us breaking news instantly, but at the same time, social media can get you in trouble or fired these days, even for a tweet you posted years ago that gets archived by someone looking for trouble outta you. LeBron James has to deal with social media over half his NBA career. Michael Jordan never had to deal with social media. Don't even get me started with the political debates and the political icons of social media, oh God.....

I despise the early 2010s. But oddly enough 2018 and 2019 somehow ended up being worse. If it wasn't for 2016 and 2017, the late 2010s would be considered the worst era of the decade. But because 2016 and 2017 were far better years, they did save this era and the early 2010s take the cake as being the worst. But 2018 and 2019 were so horrible that the two eras (early and late '10s) were almost equally bad, but still early '10s were worse overall. But by FAR, the mid 2010s (and 2013) were the best and most memorable era of this decade, no question about it and no contest. This is all pop culturally speaking of course. Personal life wise I have nothing against the late 2010s however the early 2010s were horrible for my personal life though.

Early 2017 in all honesty felt like 2013 in terms of quality mainstream songs on the radio. I don't know what happened but after around May/June, mainstream music degraded severely in 2017. This has NOTHING to do with early, mid, late stuff.... 2017 was NOT transitional it was a firm late 2010s year just like 2016 and 2018. It just has to do with 2017 and the year itself and mainstream music degrading the second half of the year and quality mainstream songs being replaced by garbage trap high in the charts.

Some of these illegal immigrants would only either be shot by oppressive regimes, imprisoned by them or seriously injured or even killed as a result of such regimes or conflict or war.

2012 had its ups and downs, but it was far from the worst 2010’s year. 2012 was one of the greatest years for movies ever. I do agree that the music in 2012 was kinda lackluster, but 2012 was still in the pinnacle of good fresh early 2010’s culture. I hated 2013 as it was going on but looking back 2013 wasn’t as bad as I thought, especially compared to an awful year like 2016, 2013 was just an unlucky 13 junior year for me.

Let me just respond to the topic or question of this thread. In the grand scheme of things, the 2010’s wasn’t that bad a decade at all. On this site it’s an overreaction and exaggeration. It definitely wasn’t a good decade politically and worldly, but pop culturally it was pretty decent. I’d rather be a teen or young adult in the 2010’s than the 2000’s. Thankfully I was a kid in the 2000’s because from what I heard from kids of the 90’s, going from that period to being a teen or young adult in the 2000’s was absolutely dreadful and boring except for 2000-2003. Now I think anyone would rather be a teen or young adult in the 90’s than both decades. I think witnessing the rise of the social media era and how far the gaming industry has gone with the graphics and online play has been pretty fun to experience throughout the late 00’s and 10’s. The rise of streaming services and Netflix was one of my favorite highlights of this decade as well. I wish I could explain more but I’m on my phone right now.

For music/pop culture I hate the second half of 2014-2019. 2010-2013 were wonderful! :) Late 2014 and 2015 have some gems though which 2016-2019 had less of for me.

For politics in Europe I hate late 2014-2019 (because the Paris attacks of 2014 started all the anti-Muslim negativity and painting all Muslims as bad terrorists. On the other hand the migrant crisis was not handled well enough by Europe and many of these people wouldn't be in a hostile place with worse climate and unwelcoming people were it not for the meddling of the West in the ME).

For politics in the US I hate 2016-present because Trump. The only bad thing in the early 2010's was that the Arab spring didn't result in good changes everywhere and in fact some countries are now worse off and that failure largely resulted in the migrant crisis that Europe failed to integrate. Lately Trump totally messed the issues in the ME.

what lmao. Twitter and Reddit are like the most liberal social media platforms. What universe do you live in? ;D
Reddit as of recent is more liberal - the longest time I've been on Reddit, it was less so, probably since around or some time after Ellen Pao's firing and with the redesign did things start to change. I've heard people complain on Twitter about its awful policies, even deeming Jack, its CEO, to be complacent with white supremacy.

Let me just respond to the topic or question of this thread. In the grand scheme of things, the 2010’s wasn’t that bad a decade at all. On this site it’s an overreaction and exaggeration. It definitely wasn’t a good decade politically and worldly, but pop culturally it was pretty decent. I’d rather be a teen or young adult in the 2010’s than the 2000’s. Thankfully I was a kid in the 2000’s because from what I heard from kids of the 90’s, going from that period to being a teen or young adult in the 2000’s was absolutely dreadful and boring except for 2000-2003. Now I think anyone would rather be a teen or young adult in the 90’s than both decades. I think witnessing the rise of the social media era and how far the gaming industry has gone with the graphics and online play has been pretty fun to experience throughout the late 00’s and 10’s. The rise of streaming services and Netflix was one of my favorite highlights of this decade as well. I wish I could explain more but I’m on my phone right now.

I'd rather be an older teen or young adult in the early 2010s because I think that was the last time pop culture came to be my taste I believe, at least fashion and music. I probably only like the 2010s culturally because of the technology we have, which helps to give some of the games we have.

Twitter, imo, is possibly the most toxic social media platform on the Internet.


Twitter is what you make of it. I signed up to it back in 2008 to keep in touch with people who followed a language-learning blog/forum. Since then I've started following more techies too. For me Twitter is very intellectually enriching. If you follow celebrities and politicians then yeah it's gonna be a mind-numbing experiences.

That's true, Reddit used to be a lot more right wing. Since Trump or maybe the 2017 race riot in Virginia it has been less so. I remember it as the ground zero for Ron Paul fans back in 2008.

I simply don't like the 2010s aesthetic. What don't you lke about the cancel culture and hostile PCness/wokeness? I think it's valid especially when you have like people who get away with pedophilia and child sex abuse, or just sex abuse in general regardless of whom it's directed to.

I get the "calling out pedophiles/sex abusers" part, but what I mean is the overall behavior from some Twitter users. Sometimes, I see the "#____is over party" tags trending all because of something someone said in the past. For example, Lil Nas X was accused of islamophobia from his old Instagram account (@nasmaraj) with no substantiated evidence. Hell, he even memed about it. https://twitter.com/lilnasx/status/1142819850533793792?lang=en

Honestly I think both Twitter and Reddit can be very toxic in different ways. Reddit has so many different sub forums of people with different opinions and can be hostile on one another. On Twitter you have so many troll accounts and so many opinionated folks on there as well who get into intense arguments. Like I said before, every person in every major industry has a Twitter account and has to deal with everything out there. While Facebook is well past its prime, I think Facebook is a pretty good community because you only add people on there who you know in your personal life and the Facebook groups are less toxic and more of a community type vibe. It used to be only teens & young adults on Facebook, now people of all ages (but mainly older adults) use Facebook so its a bit more grounded there. Facebook can still be bad at times, but definitely not as bad as Twitter. Instagram, well..... about that...... Instagram... yeah..... I don't want to say it on this site lol. Still not the most toxic tho.

It's like I'm one of the only few people who hates it on here and I'm made to look crazy because of my opinion on it lol. I think there was more backlash on this site towards the 2000s in 2010. I don't know what you guys see in this decade and why you defend it and like it so much.  ;D


I think its bc a lot of the people on here grew up as children during the late 2000’s/2010’s. There’s a lot of people who were born in the 2000’s on this site. Back in 2005 site was filled with late 80’s babies complaining about the 2000’s. The 2010’s was a depressing decade for me from start to finish. 2010-2012 were decent but anything after was not the best for my personal life. Pop culture was not the best. Some things were good and somethings I’d like to forget about

It's strange this preference for Fb. When I was living abroad Snapchat was overtaking it with teens and young adults there but over here it's still Facebook and Messenger. ;D I personally find Twitter better but almost no fellow country people there.

I agree. The 2010s were a very depressing and dark decade, i didn't like the decade at all due to very bad personal issues i went through.

I just found the decade somewhat boring pop culturally. Lot of things started feeling politically charged which got tiring really fast. The overuse of minimalism made a ton of designs and fashions look boring. Pop music mostly seemed to consist of Trap music or some EDM infused Alt-R&B. Never liked Hipster culture. Can't seem to go on the internet for 10 minutes without hearing about some social media uproar over a trivial/superficial issue. Video games all becoming these samey service titles that transforms gaming from a simple time waster into a time investment on top of the already disgusting micro-transaction rush. The over obsession with Nostalgia within every aspect of pop culture - blah blah blah

I'd go into these further, but that'd just create a long post that no one here would read.

The 2010s is a decade I have no liking towards outside of a few things. Animation wise I thought the 2010s was a nice time with TV animation breaking ground and Movie animation reaching new heights. We were able to recover from the great recession economically which was nice. And personally speaking I've felt that mentally I've grown much stronger and aware.

This world's been falling apart since 9/11 or the 1980s. Since I don't know of a world before either those times, I can only say it's gone bad since the recession and I don't think it's even finished. If it were, twentysomethings wouldn't be living with their parents if they could choose to.

9/11 is more American based and tbh I don’t feel like it had much  effect in a place like Brazil for an example. I have some memories before 9/11 and of course memories of it and after it. I was a child so I didn’t pay attention to it. Now the recession is when things really went to s*it. That was a global thing that affected most countries. I was in middle school back then and for some reason although the economy has recovered (in some ways), things haven’t been the same since. Stores like Tower Records, Sam Goody, Blockbuster, Toys R Us, etc all started going downhill (bankrupt) during and after the recession..

But the thing is, 2011 pop culture did suck... And it still sucks... So it was perfectly reasonable to be cynical at the time. Now as for 2016, I was cynical that year but it wasn't anywhere near as bad as today so I really shouldn't have complained haha. Looking back 2016 was one of the better years of the 2010s, probably the fourth best year of the decade pop-culture wise which is not bad at all especially considering it was a cultural late 2010s year. 2016 and early 2017 (early '17 even better because some of the last quality mainstream songs came out then) were still solid pop culturally despite being part of the dreaded late 2010s era. For that reason partly, the early 2010s (besides 2013) were worse than the late 2010s. But neither were as good as the mid 2010s. And even though 2013 was still part of the early 2010s culturally predominately, it was still the greatest year of the 2010s by far.

However, I hate the 2010s more and have come to like the 2000s because the sense of aesthetic, music and fashion just suck in the 2010s - it's especially disappointing when it's been the decade of better LGBT+ acceptance compared to the 2000s when especially men dress in a highly gender conforming manner.

Yep. Key words in bold.

For me, it was my personal life. It was a decade I learned not to trust people too easily and open up to
people too quickly!

People aren't all bad,.....but they aren't all good either. Unfortunately, some of those people were my blood. I'm not clarifying who exactly, but it hurt me a lot to see some of them treat me in such a way.

As for my career or school goals, I pretty much had to do a 'flushing' or 'burning' of the past because I realized that holding on to the past was blocking my progress in life.

^ditto here. Also not mad about the 2016-2020 culture. At least 2015 had some 2013/14 holdover trends.

Mind you I might have felt bad at the time in my personal life (like in 2007-2012), but with time I like that era due to the culture. It really helped in escaping your troubles. Now pop culture is depressing. And 2013/2014 was a happy time in my personal life as well.

Culturally, we're still in the late 2010s with things like atmospheric/trap beats on pop songs and social media memes on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. 2020 is essentially the year 1990 of the 21st century.

I mean, it is still the beginning of the year. Things could change throughout the course of the year. Remember, we never knew that Old Town Road took over 2019 when we were in early 2019.

No one knew what TikTok was 2010-2018, so I would say it's a 2020s trend, unless it dies out soon.

Facts. I guess I'm eager what the new culture-defining sound or trend will be that distinguishes the late 2010s.

TikTok's also definitely a part of peak late 2010s culture.

Spot on. Just from reading all the posts it's very obvious that it "sounds like a you problem" rather than with the decade itself.


I asked one of the few guys, in real life, that I found attractive out on a date, when I still saw them in public. They weren't gay, though.

Just saying this because it happened in October of 2020, and if you thought one of the "you problem"s was between me and Grindr, in 2018, because I could not bring myself to ask someone in real life out, you'd have been wrong.

Wow, you are brave for asking a straight dude out lol.

I wasn't thinking about any individual in particular when making that post though, I agree Grindr is toxic.

I heard a lot of people on this site like to bash the 2010s. In my opinion, I think the 2010s are an OK decade for me. Why there’s so much hatred for the 2010s on this site compared to the other decades?


1). It’s recent

2). Everybody in here lived through the decade and don’t have the rose colored glasses they have for other decades

3). Lots of people on here probably came of age in the 2010s, and are more critical towards the pop culture since it was aimed at they’re demographic.

I’ve noticed some common trends with people that often hate on the 2010’s. They’re usually at least two of these:

-90’s or 2000’s kid
-Low self-esteem
-Dissatisfaction with their personal life
-Overly nostalgic
-Refusal to listen to new music and try new things
-Has a hard time living in the present


Only logical explanation tbh.

They’re people really stuck on the past, and they keep comparing it to past decades

Also I assume most are in they’re 20s and aren’t navigating it well enough and peaked when they were 12 years old lol

Even if I found new music I liked, they tend to be only on streaming services. Even if you throw $10 a month to either even use it or keep your favorite music offline, that's still not a guarantee. Before streaming services were hot, you'd lose your favorite music to a fire or burglary. This is much worse with films and TV shows on Netflix and similar.

Yes, with streaming ALL CONTROL lies elsewhere with the masters pulling the strings. They giveth and taketh away. It's VERY dystopian. All the poor dears who sacrifice everything at the altar of convenience are so blinded by it they don't notice. Look up "bread and circuses".  You are one of the few young people speaking out against this.

Probably because it's still modern and recent in their minds, and it is pretty recent, we're in the latter half of 2020, the first year of the 20s. It honestly wasn't honestly that bad of a decade, I did enjoy the earlier half of it and all the way up to 2016. Remembering when hoverboards were all the rage and fidget spinners. EDM everywhere in the beginning.  Probably ten years from now we'll probably see more warmness towards it, if I had to make a guess.

Well the pop culture from the decade was pretty unredeemable for one. There was also a noticeably rising sense of superficialness and materialism in the 2010s, probably a result from the mobile tech and social media boom. It was also the decade where music came to a point unoriginality. Trap came into fruition in the 2010s which completely ruined the hopes for rap music by true Hip Hop fans during this decade. A lot of the youth became very lazy and fake. The massive enhancements in tech caused a negative effect on the brains of the younger generation during the decade. Everything just felt like it was turning dark and getting into an apocalyptical vibe throughout the entire decade.

Seems that in January 2021 people are already starting to go out and buy those rose tinted glasses for the 2010s... Socially distanced and wearing a mask of course.

You now see videos like this pop up on YouTube...
