The good ol’ days now. 2000-2009. Some people still lump in the 2000s with the 2010s which is really annoying. No, Party Rock Anthem did not come out in the 2000s!! The early 2010s are not the 2000s. Donald Trump was just some rich TV personality, “fake news” wasn’t in people’s daily vocabulary, a snowflake was a thing that fell from the sky, and Facebook was only a site to connect with friends and nothing more. Some other things associated with the 2000s:

Bling bling

Flip phones

Emo
MySpace

Ringtones
CDs
Disney stars

iPods

Side bangs

Frosted tips
George W. Bush

Get the 2000s mug.
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.

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...

See: Postmodernism/Postmodernity
In the 2000s, no new school of thought, art, or music was invented.

Honestly a pretty overhated decade. It is a time where the internet and social media started getting more advanced and mainstream but weren't as prominent as they were during the 2010s decade. It was also a time where many famous events happened such as:

9/11, the War on Terror, the election of Barack Obama (the first black American president), the 2007-8 finanical crisis, the rise of many famous websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube, etc., Saddam Hussein captured, the Y2K crisis, the release of many famous devices such as the iPod, Kindle, Blaclberry, Android, etc., and much, much more.

Then there's the media. Some are mixed about it but most consider the media to actually be pretty good. This was when many iconic movies, shows and video games came out.

Movies such as The Dark Knight, Shrek, Cast Away, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Monster's Inc., Finding Nemo, No Country For Old Men, and so on.

Shows such as The Office, The Sopranos, Doctor Who, SpongeBob SquarePants, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Malcolm in the Middle and so on.

Games such as God of War, Gradn Theft Auto: San Andreas, Half-Life 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Okami, Portal and so on.

The ironic thing is that those who grew up in the 2000s complained about them and said it was a terrible decade. Now as of this year they all look back on the 2000s and say they were a much simpler and fun time.
Person 1: Man I miss the 2000s. They were a much more innocent time don't you agree?

Person 2: Uh, if I can remember 10 years ago you told me that you hated growing up in the 2000s.

Person 1: Really? I said that years ago?

Person 2: Yep. Now it seems like you and everyone else who didn't like the decade are now starting to feel all nostalgic about it since you guys constantly complain abiut the 2010s.

Person 1: Huh. Well I guess you should never say it can't get worse. At first I thought last decade was bad, but then the 2010s came and it was a lot, lot worse. Besides, maybe I was too hard on the past decade (hey at least people weren't overly obsessed with the internet so much and they actually talked to each other in person without a phone).

John: Does anyone remember the 2000s?

Alica: Yeah, sort of.
John: It was the best era I still play my Xbox 360 and play Flash games.
