Basically the 1990s, but more commercialized, with much better technology and more conflict.
The decade of the hipster, indie rock, veganism, gay acceptance, and going "green".
The decade of the reality show, crappy television, the death of MTV, and the rise of emo.
The decade of constant crisis, which led to the evolution of the 24-hour news network.
The decade when we all realized that our entire lives depended on the internet.
(alt) The bastard child of 1980s fashion and 1990s ideas
2000s- Let's take all that's great from the 90s, commercialize it, and market it to everyone!
A decade where
Movies are just sequels, remakes, and Superhero type junk, but we do have some pretty decent stuff in the late 2000s.
The internet has turned into a haven for teenagers and young adults with Web 2.0
Anime is everywhere on the internet
People are not happy of what they got..they are spoiled rotten.
Rip-offs of previous decades in music and fashion. Everything from the 1930s-1990s, but with emphasis on 60s, 70s, and 80s.
The rise of emo and crunk/glam/dirty south rap
Indie freaks and scene kids all over the place...thank you MySpace and Purevolume
Clothes are basically a label on everything and you pay $90 for some jeans with holes in them.
It is cool to be a nerd with the geeky glasses and video games are awesome.
Everything is technology...no wonder why IT is in demand. To make software for 16 year old girls to "play" with their iPhone.
Disney pop and Hannah Montana all over the place.
To sum things up, the 2000s is a decade where everything is based on technology and spending money, causing the economy to go to hell. Then it is based on being hipster and retro because we can't afford or too lazy to think of something original and innovative.
2000s are boring. I think the 2010s will be a lot more original and interesting. The only thing that is "new" with the 2000s is the technology.
The decade when everyone ran out of ideas...
In the 2000s, no new school of thought, art, or music was invented.
the first and (so far) worst decade of the 21st century. From really bad events like the election of George Bush to 9/11 to Iraq War to bad economy. The decade of overly commercialized junk from music to clothes, where an iPod that costs 20 dollars to make is sold for ten times the price and jeans with holes in them cost more than a week’s worth of minimum wage. The decade that MTV went from a good music video channel to a utter promoter of degenerating shit culture of hop hip and reality TV shows, which lead to stupid white kids dressing up and acting like "gangstas" and trying to sing like bad singers like snoop dog and soulja boy. The decade where Nickelodeon stopped airing classy channels like Kenan and Kel and Rockos Modern Life to airing retarded shows like iCarly, Spongebob, and TruJackson. The decade of Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus and other slut culture Disney promotes. The decade were Tiger Wood's affairs are more important than the War in Afghanistan, especially when the president sent another surge of troops. The decade of very few good films where everything else is a bad remake, adaptation, sequel, parody, or super hero. Politics turned into a total joke. Kids are glued to their computers and PS3s or Xbox 360s while the swings and slides in the park rust day after day. The decade of ugly tight jeans and tight sweaters.
The 2000s suck so much the the 1970s seem like a better decade.
Shitty decade that will be laughed at much like the 80's. It is very similar to the 80's but less original.more...
.It is not the "hipster decade" or the decade of indie rock. Most people listen to shitty bling rap, generic pseudo emo/mall punk, stupid brain dead pop or at the end of the decade, ear bleedingly bad fusions of all of those styles a la Brokencyde.
.Everyone tends to become "escapists" which means watch there stupid reality shows, partaaay a lot and watch overrated youtube "celebrities" like Fred while the world crumbles around them.
.Gays are not becoming more accepted, if they were they would be allowed to marry in California and other places.
.Most of the decade is spent with the worst President ever George Bush who America elected TWICE just to show you how stupid America has become in the new decade.
.TV is mostly beyond stupid reality shows and teeny bopper Disney bullshit.
.Nearly every single counterculture movement or non-mainstream music style has been commercialized from punk to emo to indie.
There are some good things about 2000's however.
.In the later half of the decade movies started making a comeback from the shitty sequel and remake period early on with some will be classics like Juno, The Dark Knight and the works of Judd Apatow.
.People become somewhat more environmentally conscious although we still have a ways to go.
.Non-mainstream musical styles like indie rock have become more available via internet radio.
.In the later half of the ...

The most recent past decade. First of the 21st century.
Usually pronounced "The Two Thousands" or "The Noughties". Though technically the decade ran from 2000-2009, the actual decade, like all decades, did not perfectly coincide with this. The 90s actually died in 2001 and the 2010s actually began in 2009 with the rise of Auto-tune and Justin Bieber.
Worst decade since the 1940s, and that's only because the world was almost blown to bits then. The '40s had a much cooler style and culture.
The 2000s were the first decade to embrace all the previous fashions and trends of the past decade (1990s), only to do it in a much lamer way.
Even in 2011, you still have kids who love South Park and Eminem, so in a way, the 2010s are just continuing to copy the 90s.
The 2000s were so void of original ideas, even the kids don't like them and we all were aching to return to the 20th century.
The decade of talentless rap, horrible whiny emo music, uber-boring Post-Grunge, relentless profanity, ugly tattoos, and trashy pop stars.
Thank God it's the 2010s.
"Remember the 2000s"?
"Yeah, what was the difference between the 2000s and the 1990s?"
"Pretty much nothing, except the 2000s sucked a lot more."
