Usually considered an extension of the 1990's for American culture. Pretty much had the same feel of the past decade, but with a lot of political and economical trouble.

Many music stars and bands who were popular in the mid-late 90's continued their popularity, with some new emerging stars who sung in the same style. The boyband fad died in 2002, with the end of NSYNC and the hiatus of the Backstreet Boys.

Many popular shows from the late 90's continued or aired in reruns through the period. Reality TV was popular, but it wasn't usually scripted. Anime dominated the animation scene. In addition, 90's shows, which were either running or in reruns, remained popular. Adult cartoons became popular.

Politically, the early 00s was overall a horrendous time. Bush was inaugurated in 2001, followed by the 9/11 and anthrax attacks and the War on Terror later that year. The Iraq war in 2003.

The economy wasn't doing too well. The dot-com Bubble burst in 2000, leading to a recession in the 2001-2002 years, though it wasn't as bad as the late 2000s or 1930s recession.

Video games systems included the original Playstation, the PS2, Xbox 1, Dreamcast, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advanced. Online gaming started to become popular. 2D gaming was accepted for the portable systems, and portable remakes of many 80's and 90's classics. Home consoles usually had 3D games, but there were compilations of classic 2D games.

It wasn't perfect, but many are starting to reminisce on the time today.

When people upload videos that are unnecessarily and surprisingly loud, even at normal volume, giving the impression that the loudness killed people who use headphones due to their proximity to the ears.
YouTube video: "Barney sings I love you"
Audio (volume X9999): "I LOVE YOU YOU LOVE ME WE'RE A HAPPY FAMILY!"

What starts out initially sounding like pure crap, because it gets overplayed.

After many years pass, it starts sounding good.
1996: The Spice Girls plays on the radio non-stop.

"Yo tell you what I want what I really really want..."

"NOOOOO, MAKE IT STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SCREW MODERN MUSIC!"

2010: 14 years after it is released, you hear it on YouTube.

"Yo tell you what I want what I really really want..."

"Ahhh, good old music. They don't make it as good as it was anymore."

Where you can find all the racism, homophobia and other lunacy seen on YouTube comments, with significantly better grammar.
Liveleak comments will rot the sane portion of your brain, but is easier on the literate's mind.
