Top 10 Worst Things About the 2010s

Man, the 2010's sucked. Music went down hill, kids cartoons became more inappropriate, and people were so uneducated that most of them didn't even know who Hitler was.

The Top Ten

1 Hero Factory

Apparently a series of toy collection produced by LEGO is the "WORST THING ABOUT THIS DECADE". - Joeljohns249

The democrats are like Barb, trying to raise a generation of Chris Chans. They want their offspring to be mortally dependent on them, so they make every effort to nuke their independence. Don't worry, mama govt will provide you all with nice tugboats, as long as you swear loyalty to her forever.

But also like Barb, the democrat leadership have gone senile and now the inmates are running the asylum. The Chris Chans are just rambling about how orange bad man / ted bundy-chu are responsible for everything bad, and all Barb can do is nod and say "that's nice dear".

They're not worrying about how they pay the bills, because the blue wave / dimensional merge is coming and by then they'll have access to the coffers of the rich people / cwcville and everything will be fine.

LOL Hero Factory was so lame

I wan't it to be the 1980's but I was not even born yet. I hate this so called 2010's decade.

2 Bad Music Artists

If this is the worst thing of 10 whole years we are living in a paradise. - Alkadikce

All this mumble rap garbage is a good example

Wow... what a life-threatening situation... - Joeljohns249

3 Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)

Harmful but now not that much of a threat since they are somewhat under control by now - Joeljohns249

If china is considered capitalist than America is communist

Good thing they are finally gone, but unfortunately the Syria war is still going.

SJWs love ISIS and North Korea.

5 Chester Bennington's death

I like LP & everything but this item is a bit too high for #6 on this list - Joeljohns249

RIP amazing singer.

true - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

6 Gene Simmons Telling Depressed People to Kill Themselves

Absurd comment for sure, but why would you believe everything a washed old rocker says? - Joeljohns249

Hehehe. Gene will be Gene.

7 The Media saying that Artists like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj are Role Models for the Youth of America

So what? The media (probably CNN) might also tell you that "Donald Trump supports KKK" tomorrow when you switch on the T.V. Are you gonna believe that too? - Joeljohns249

No, they are bad role models. - allamassal

Do you people even know where Nicki got her surname, Minaj, from? She got it from Menage, Which is French for Threesome (a Threesome is three people acting in sexual activities).

And ABC said that Nicki Minaj (or should I say Nicki Threesome) is a role model for the youth of America. Because Threesomes are really appropriate for younger kids right? WRONG!

The fact that these people are seen as role models sickens me. Modern pop artists are the exact opposite of good rule models. Yet Rock, and metal music is seen as "Stannic", and "Too rebellious". Wow it's like we live in the 1950s again.

8 Social Justice Warriors

This is one of the very few items on this list that are somewhat legitimate reasons to complain. But then again, it's best to ignore these crybabies otherwise they'll feed off the attention & hence increase in number - Joeljohns249

These people should go to North Korea. I've seen the MSM even claim that North Korea is a better country than America unironically. I even seen one person on the comments section of YouTube claim that the 1st amendment is Orwellian. The Alt-Right may be filled with literal retards but at least skinheads get called out on their obnoxious behavior and are shunned by society. Hell I've even seen the right call other parts of the regressive right. When Seattle4Truth killed someone he was called out and was tossed out of their group while the MSM and the left called for violence against Senator Rand Paul, a politician who has done almost nothing wrong, and the left even praised the violence. Also when a shooting happens or anything bad that happens to society or the left, the first thing the left will think of is Russia when it is irrelevant to the topic. The modern left are not adults, they are manchildren that were not raised properly.

These people are far more destructive to ...more

@Visitor-Who ever wrote this comment, please go hurt yourself for insulting autistic people.

These people will be the face of the 2010s regardless if you side with their values or not. When people think of the 2010s the people of the future will think of political correctness, people trying to impose 1984 style censorship although failing, awful cartoon fandoms like Steven Universe and MLP, the dumbing down of western civilization, people with the intelligence of Chris Chan (who is no longer an internet oddity but rather one of the many faces of how people in the 2010s lived their lives), Tumblr, Obama, labeling people racist Nazis or pedophiles, yellow journalism, and the defense of pedophilia. The 2010s can be summarized by two things political correctness and autism.

@visitor-Dear visitor, Autism does NOT equal mental retardation. Please get your facts right.

These people existed in the 90s but the difference is that no one gave a crap because they were not nearly as autistic as they are today.

9 Media Manipulation

Especially News channels who are mostly biased to either one of the political spectrum. - Joeljohns249

The media has dumbed down society and has made people dumber. Unfunny leftist state propagandists disguised as comedians are telling people how to think. No one should even watch T.V. in the current year. It is all propaganda outlets for the elites in power and to create a culture based on consumerism that dumbs down the individual.

Never mind, Black Panther is a good film. But the way that the review sites were still baised about it. Basically in modern Hollywood if you do not like a film that is being promoted heavily, then you are a racist or a Russian troll.

TMZ is a very good example of this.

Shows like TMZ do count in deed.

12 More and More Teenage Girls Getting Pregnant
13 Swag and YOLO

This is actually one of the least bad things about the 2010s. Once 2013 hit things went downhill and once 2015 happened all redeemable aspects of this decade being good went out the window.

Yolo was an idiotic excuse to do extremely idiotic and dangerous activities, Swag is another word for cool. - LemonComputer

14 Social Justice Warriors and Political Correctness

True I hate feminists and pc.

When Far Cry 5 came out you did not get the results you wanted showing that you are incapable of free thought or being an audience wroth catering towards.

Traditional thoughts are good for society. Screw your cult. That is what you are. You are a cult. You hate this country and should leave.

It is so bad it had to be put on here twice (just the sjw part) - USGC

15 Donald Trump Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

Liberals are spam-voting this item I see... - Joeljohns249

Obama was worse. He created PC culture and snowflakes. He helped turn America into insufferable hipster brats. Obama is like a bad parent who gives everyone what they want. And Clinton would have made things worse by making Brave New World into a reality. Yes, Trump has some polices that are retarded, but compared to Bush, Obama, Clinton, or any other establishment politician, he is an angel who I think actually wants to help his country by putting America First. If you like Obama or any other establishment politican then you are a hipster piece of trash and a NPC.

I wonder if Trump feeds his kids Tide Pods for lunch.

16 Too Many Remakes of Classic Movies

This is nothing new. The 90s had a ton of terrible remakes as well.

17 Too Many Ignorant, Uneducated People

I'd rather live in the 1930s than this crap decade. At least the people in the 1930s and 1940s have actual character.

Everyone asks when kids became so dumb. Answer: 2010. The 2010s will forever be one of the worst decades in history.

Well...everywhere I see them and I think IGN (which you can't spell ignorant without it) is lesser ignorant

18 People accusing Rock and Heavy Metal of being "Satanic"

Other than some intentional trolls, I've never seen anybody still saying this in the 2010s - Joeljohns249

The 2010s = 1950s 2.0

But it is especially heavy metal

That did not happen this decade. But it did happen in the 90s. Nowadays it's the left who are acting like these types of Christians. These people pussified metal with their PC culture.

19 Movies and TV Shows Suck Now

Disagree & I'm pretty sure some nostalgiatard added this item - Joeljohns249

Steven Universe had potential but it ended up being garbage that is full of filler due to a disconnection between the animators and the writers. The only reason why anyone likes is because they have not grown out of children's cartoons and also the fact that it is not TTG.

I can't even get myself to watch T.V. anymore. PC culture made things worse. I remember cutting cable in 09 during the beginning of the Great Recession. I can not how believe how bad it has gotten. Not anything is bad however. You can still find good movies like Logan or Blade Runner 2049 but it just feels like Hollywood is creatively bankrupt. Also avoid most of the cartoons of this era. In my opinion, Steven Universe is overrated trash that has no story or good animation to speak of.

I kind of disagree - USGC

21 We Have the Worst Music in History

I do not get why the morons in the republican party want to repeal abortion when more black people are killed than whites from abortion. Seeing a black person get aborted makes me happy since that means there is less annoying rap music in the streets.

Rap music in 2018 sucks for the most part, which is unfortunate because rap is starting to completely dominate now. - allamassal

I couldn't disagree more. I hate 2000's music with a snappin' passion.

People who say this are too lazy to search up good music. I listen to Kat Mcsnatch (who is far from mainstream or bad), Bo Burnham (who is also far from mainstream or bad) and Eminem (who is mainstream but really deserves it). There are both bad and good music artists in the mainstream world. I also listen to random metal and rock music from Guitar Hero which are really good. I even made a playlist on Guitar Hero PS4 songs (but I haven't added the extras yet).

There are a few bad music artists, but there always was. I am only 13, but I will explain why people prefer old music to new as clear as I can, as I may have an explanation.

It only seems like music is getting worse each year because these bad artists, like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj, are getting more media attention. Bad artists in years before the 2000's were just forgotten about. Even if you came across a bad artist in the <2000's, you have now forgotten about that artist, and you have no chance of ...more - LemonComputer

Worse game to ever come out( besides Minecraft)

Seriously, a video game is ruining this decade? - gloomyapparatus

23 Bad Role Models Like Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, and Lil Wayne Getting Glorified and Praised
24 The Loud House The Loud House The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. more.

This show is disgusting, especially the pool episode.

The 2010s had WAY too many great cartoons, but THIS one just RUINED the decade in its entirety, because of its creator Chris Savino, who KILLED Dexter's Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls in the 2000s! Also, why isn't there a list of the Worst Things about the 2000s on this website?! AND WHY ISN'T THERE A LIST AGAINST 2000S KIDS?! - Grojfan100.

25 Selfies

This is a mainly teenage trend that I hate.
(And I'm 13.)
However, my mum absolutely loves it. - LemonComputer

26 Social Media Obsession

Social media is cancer

Nobody has any decency or knows how to strike up a conversation with being on Twitter the Gram taking pictures getting 200 likes

27 Eminem Selling Out

He sold out after those terrible collaborations with rihanna and lil wayne - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

What happened to you man? You were the truth back in the late 90's and the early 2000's, and as time went on you started rapping with ass artists like Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, and Rihanna!

28 Boy Bands Coming Back In Full Force

Why would boy-bands becoming popular bother you so much? If you don't think their music, just don't listen to them. It's not that big of a deal. - Joeljohns249

29 Kids Don't Play Outside Anymore

Every time I drive by the playgrounds I grew up playing on in the 2000s, they're empty. I feel bad for my 8-year old cousin, he's not having any childhood besides the iPad. Am I an old fart? Nope, I'm only 19.

Somethings I think are good viewing in a liberal sense, this is one of them - USGC

30 Inappropriate Kids Cartoons

Cartoon Network didn't care about censorship. And I'm not saying this in a positive way either. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Adventure Time, Regular Show, And Total Drama Island, but these shows have more mature content (Characters flipping each other and using the P word). These are the types of shows that should not be played on a kids channel. Seriously! How could you people not see this as a problem? When you give your kid stuff, more stuff is made for them. Think of it as this way. I grew up with bad cereal and terrible milk, and with actual real food I can eat. Entertainment works in the exact same way. Your kid watches stuff, he/she grows up and becomes an adult who watches stuff. And he/she is all alone, ready to face the big scary world full of killers and ass. I hope you people know this stuff that I'm saying.

With all that being said, not all the stuff in the world is made for kids.

The problem isn't inappropriate Kids Cartoons that issue was way worse in the 2000s. It's politically correct cartoons and the politically correct atmosphere of the 2010's that are the issue.

They aren't innapropriate, just stupid

If a kid's T.V. show isn't fueled by fighting, dueling, or hunting, it's just dumb. I'm glad I was a child of the 90's. - BKAllmighty

Horrible game. Disgusting fandom. Unoriginal music. Appalling characters.

40 Everything is Cheaply Made

But at least we could afford them easier than before - Neonco31

41 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

What's wrong with this? - ElijahCoriell

42 Bad Fashion

I'm not saying that any era in history has been perfect in regards to fashion but to me the 2010s is arguably the worst decade for fashion; skinny jeans that resemble tights, goofy geek glasses, the stupid undercut, haircuts that require stupid amounts of gel/wax and combing, hipster beards, you name it. To me the only decade with worse fashion than the 2010s would be the 1980s. I do wonder what millennials will think in a few decades from now about their fashion sense in the 2010s.

Scene kids and people who sag and wear the tightest clothes imaginable (especially rappers).

I hate the makeup and style of 2010s!

43 Clickbait
44 Bill Nye The Science Guy Saves The World

Bill Nye, WHYY? Why would Bill ruin our hearts! - LightningStrike

45 Teen Titans Go! Teen Titans Go! 'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television more.

Teen Titans Go is trash, it ruined the WB website, and what's even worse, they take the original Teen Titans off the website, sure it may have a few problems, but it didn't just have specialty, it took a lot of responsibility, real courage and a team (rules) to make the show, this is taking stuff from useful to non useful things, and been ironically living long for 5 years, so yes, it should be cancelled

Which do you prefer? Teen titans go, or leave it to beaver? THAT'S EASY!

Should be #5 at least, this show deserves to be banned

It's garbage.

47 People Care Too Much About Celebrity Deaths

People keep crying about Carrie Fisher as if they knew this person in real life. In this day and time people can become their own celebrities so who needs these dated Hollywood people who have become nothing more than tools to brainwash the people into idiocy.

48 People Using YOLO as an Excuse

YOLO once was meaningful, but not anymore

It shows that people are stupid.

49 Too Many Bandwagons

Most people think that if they don't follow what's popular right now, Then that means they're not popular. Now that's pure bull. What's so great about being popular? Are you not popular because your friends will only accept you if you follow what ever's popular right now? They're not your friends. Real friends are ones who look out for you and accept you for who you are. They let you like what you like and not have to follow any bull hot topic.

I don't believe in bandwagons. If you don't like or think that it's just stupid and pointless, then don't follow it.

That's what's wrong with our generation. People just like to like whatever the hell's popular right now and not be themselves. Whether they only do it just to get more friends or just because.

And another reason people follow bandwagons is because, let's say that people follow a hot female chick who sings but can't sing good and the only reason she's still getting attention is because people are so obsessed and attracted to her damn ass (I'm looking at you Nicki Minaj).

We've had a lot of bandwagons going on over the past couple years. Soulja Boy, Hurricane Chris, The GS Boys, Kreayshawn, Gangnam Style, Macklemore, Twerking, recently last year, The Harlem Shake.

If you don't like something then don't follow it. You don't have to like whatever is popular right now. Just because something's popular right now doesn't mean it's automatically ...more

50 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt more.

He is a crook and a lair like the rest of the criminal organization that is DC.

He helped create SJWs and that alone is why I hate him.

Only NPCs like him.

I don't like him but he is better than Trump at least.
