Worst Trends that Kids are Into

The Top Ten

1 Twerking Twerking

Twerking is a 'sexually provocative dance' as is stated on urban dictionary. Now, I don't want to see kids dancing by thrusting their hips in a 'sexually provocative' manner. What makes this worse is that some horrible people in this world will want to look at them. These girls (The Powerpuff Girls in the image) are in elementary school now. Do you really think I want to see little kids dance in a 'sexually provocative' way? If you answer yes, please check yourself into the nearest asylum. - RoseRedFlower

God that picture makes me wanna commit suicide.

Are these kids ASKING to get kidnapped by paedophiles!? No one should be shaking their butt cheeks in every direction at such a young age... AND POSTING IT ON THE INTERNET FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE! So many freaks are gonna watch that and dream about... Well, you know. And here's a bit of my brutal opinion: if they DO get taken away by paedophiles, that's the kid's fault. Not only that, the PARENT'S fault. What parent would LET their kid post a video of them twerking? A parent shouldn't let their kid walk around in a bra in undies in the first place. - RaccoonCartoon

I'm very glad I don't have a hip, so I won't look like these people.
(In all seriousness, I don't hate the show, I was even surprised they showed this on the show. I respect your opinion of those who hate the show.) - mermaidmanandgarfield13

2 Musical.ly

I thought the app was stupid when I first heard about it but thank the heavens it's dying out. Most of the people don't have talent. Do I even need to mention Jacob Sartorius? - RoseRedFlower

Why do we need this when we already have Youtube? These new social media apps are like the dumbed down versions of stuff that already exists. - Zach808

I never understood why lip-syncing is why people like Jacob Sartorius get music contracts. Seriously, anyone can lip-sync. - Swellow

My cousins have Musical.ly accounts and they have lots of followers and they can't even sing or dance! That's a dumb app!

3 Fidget Spinners

These are so ANNOYING! They were everywhere, the streets were polluted with Fidget Spinner boxes. Some lass said she came up with the idea for her autistic son this (or last) year, but she's a LIAR! Fidget Spinners existed in the 90s, when her son wasn't even born! And no, they aren't good for autistic people. Not only will it distract them more than anything, but they'll probably try to eat it, and Fidget Spinners are made with sweatshop chemical paint (that's what I like to call it, anyway). It really only exists for money. - RaccoonCartoon

Really, these toys are just irritating. My brother told me a kid started selling them at school without permission and the toy ended up getting banned. - naFrovivuS

It helps you with your autism

Wow. Just effing wow. Fidget Spinners aren’t bad in themselves, it’s the fact that everywhere you go makes it bad. I have one and that thing’s addicting(fidget cubes are better though) and the Ahole who said an Autistic kid would eat the fidget, what view of autsim do you have? Maybe being more distracted, but not eating it.

4 Dabbing

Every time someone tells me to dab, I tell them "JUST STOP! ". Dabbing is so RETARDED!

People who do it: Kill Thyself - SoldierOfFortune

How did this even catch on? - alphadan12

Can someone give me a valid reason as to why dabbing is "cringeworthy"? It's just a dance move. - ItsPisces

5 Instagram

It's actually a good site, much better than here. You people only hate it because of the kids in your school that use it. Learn the definition of "overrated". - Swellow

I was at Barnes and Noble and- no lie- I saw an Instagram PICTURE BOOK for ideas on Instagram. what? - mayamanga

Social media is something that gets way to much hate from people who don't use it. - Skullkid755

The tags on Instagram memes are absolutely disgusting. - Lunala

6 Dating Drama

I was talking to this girl in my school who is in seventh grade and she said that all of the girls in her class burst into tears. When I asked why, she said because some dating drama happened with her ex. I asked 'wait. so there's no horrible disease? She's in seventh grade, she shouldn't even be dating." - AnonymousChick

Everyone at my school started dating in fifth grade...all they do is go to the school dances together and the girls wear the boys' jackets. It's so stupid! - FloydtheCat

Very clear that the contributors to this very list lost ideas when they progressed. Come on, relationship fights are bound to happen, life is no Disney movie. Also, yes, she can date. - Swellow

If I were to have heard any girls in my middle school whining about their "boyfriends leaving them" I would've smacked them and told them to "grow the yowsers up." - CloudInvasion

7 Snapchat Snapchat Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University, and developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc Snapchat was made in September 2011

An app that's proving to be a major hit among shallow, self-entitled pieces of garbage that litter my school that is somehow still popular after a few years. I know that there are a fair share of people who don't use this app because they're obsessed with sharing "how good my face looks with this filter," but that's all I've ever seen of it. It's specifically designed to share how "great my life, face, etc." is to your friends and users via sending them pictures or... ugh, the stories. I'm sick and tired of hearing the stories and "just look at my streaks! " discussions over at my high school. Apps like these are why millennials are considered anti-social and phone dependent. I refuse to touch this app, and I hope it dies soon. - nerffan8000

All the boys on my bus are obsessed with Snapchat.

Stupid. Mostly used by shallow teenagers obsessed with social media

Just...unbearable. It's just a feeding ground for conventionally attractive teens that are desperate for attention. - CloudInvasion

8 Modern Music

Justin bieber sucks

Listen to some Proleter and HOME, then come and tell me modern music is an obsession

Well, I don't like any music, so... Yeah.
I must say, though. I still prefer older music even if I don't like it, because AT LEAST I can get some nostalgia if anything. No, I'm not talking about 80s music! Too far back! I mean 90s and 2000s. - RaccoonCartoon

Now everyone is hyped up about Gucci Gang...
What has our generation come to?

9 Vine

Most of the people in my school are like "You want to see the new latest vine, well it is 'What are those! '" Then it spreads to the entire school and everyone does it. - AnimeDrawer

This is one of the most "born in the wrong generation" lists I've ever seen. Just stop. - IronSabbathPriest

Some vines are good as long as they're clever and well made and not just random crap that's supposed to be funny - Mcgillacuddy

I find this pathetic, I'm glad it shut down.
I must say, though. It would be a little better if Musical.ly shut down instead! - RaccoonCartoon

10 #Hashtag

#Shut #The #Hell #Up #You #Don't #Need #To #Use #This #God #Awful #Thing #Before #Every #Word - mayamanga

I used to think a hashtag was a breakfast item. - CloudInvasion

There was this one boy in my school who kept saying ''hashtag'' before anything. It got annoying real fast. - RaccoonCartoon

The Contenders

11 Hating Donald Trump

Eh hating Donald Trump's not that bad to be honest.

I am 15 years old and I hate Donald Trump. Honestly, LIKING Donald trump is what kids are into these days.

There's good reason to.

This isn't a trend, it's an opinion. - RaccoonCartoon

12 Water Bottle Flipping

THIS SUCKS SO BADLY! I remember when I was younger I would just do this as a little game. Now it's become a huge trend and it's been BEATEN INTO THE GROUND! It's come to the point where random singers come up to me, flip my bottle, and carry on with their day

It's so loud and I'm in high and it bothers me at lunchtime while I'm trying to watch YouTube videos - Ihateschool

It sounds like pounding on a wall!

13 3AM Challenge

Please rageelixer stop the 3 am videos

Why is it so popular? It sounds really stupid! - FloydtheCat

"Oh no! Kids are going outside and being healthy! While having fun! WHAT IS THIS BLASPHEMY? "

They're playing the wrong game - Neonco31

This song is crap, but the Nickelodeon version made it worse.-Vestalis

It's a horrible song. - FloydtheCat

20 Clowns

Clowns are NOT "going around and killing high school teachers", in fact they are not killing anyone. A bunch of immature idiots are trying to scare people dressed up as clowns, so far they have mainly accomplished getting themselves bitten by attack dogs.

Awful, they were everywhere on October, especially Halloween, these idiots are going to get shot by someone some day or even beaten to death if they keep trying to scare people.

*Sighs* My younger brother thinks they're real, but they're not. Even some kids at my school think they're real. These "clowns" are a bunch of immature idiots are trying to scare people by dresseing up as clowns. I'm happy they gotten themselves bitten by attack dogs.-Vestalis

Ughh I remember the killer clown trend - Lunala

23 Emojis

The most overused infuriating thing ever. Every time I see one of these things I cringe. They weren't that bad at first, but they are mostly used for no reason. People only use them because they are "cute" at this point. Not to just send a quick text. And now there is a movie of them. Stop it, get some help. - wubbalubbadubdub

I find nothing wrong with these. And besides, they're for text messages, not god damn essays - Mcgillacuddy

I don't have a problem with emojis, but the fact that we're about to have an entire animated feature based off of them this summer is definitely not a good thing. The only reason I would ever watch The Emoji Movie is to bash on it for the entire duration of the film. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They have been done to death so much, that there is a MOVIE about these things.

24 Kids blowing off steam at baby shows like Dora and Caillou for not being their age demographic

Very common on this site and on other sites. Disparaging shows you liked as a child (and, as well, shows that kids over the age of 8 would not care about them) doesn't make you cool, it makes you look more like an idiot. - Swellow

Look at the worst kids shows list somebody rants about dora being stupid and not noticing things behind her. Like dude, its like that to help kids learn - Yatagarasu

I do this a lot, but I have to admit, there are way worse shows than these ones. Boku No Pico is not a kids show, and it is in my opinion one of the worst shows ever. - AnimeDrawer

I lost count of people on this site that do this. - ItsPisces

25 Roasting

Worst trend ever - FloydtheCat

26 Pop Music

Pop has been terrible ever since the year 2000 it's not going to get better any time soon.

This decade was the worst decade for pop.

I honestly like pop even though most of it today is bad. I just go with the flow - Neonco31

Why is Justin Beiber popular - Ihateschool

There is nothing bad about him!

Hardly anyone in my school know David bowle. All they know is dubstep, stupid bands like One Direction, cash me outside girl and dap and undertale.


28 Roblox

I joined roblox in 2011. It was funnest 2011-2013. In 2014 it went downhill. In 2015 it got worse. In 2016 it started getting REALLY bad and in 2017 I quit. - Lunala

29 Jersey Shore Jersey Shore Jersey Shore is an American reality television series which ran on MTV from December 3, 2009 to December 20, 2012 in the United States.

It literally says it ended in 2012 - Puga

Jersey Shore is no longer relevant.

They don't even live in new jersey

It's like I'm watching grown ass adults acting like damn spoiled 3 year olds, but yet I've seen 3 year olds who have more common sense than these imbeciles.

When I look at Jersey Shore, I see it as, " This is what you're kids will be like as adults if you don't discipline them.".

30 Undertale

Undertale is good on my opinion but the fanbase is awful, dare I say worse than bronies - cartoonfan101


The only bad thing is the fanbase. In my opinion I think some the AU's are good(the only BAD AU in my opinion is underswap. I just like blueberry sans and that's it).-Vestalis

Basically where you eat a tide pod. A dumb idea. It can kill people. - Lunala

Modern spongebob sucks

33 Boku No Pico Boku No Pico Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.

Are you guys seriously thinking that kids are into adult-oriented anime? Wow, you guys are so damn prejudiced against everything modern. - Swellow

As far as I know, I am staying away from that anime as far as possible. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


If any kids are into this, then well...just turn humans back into cavemen because it'll just happen eventually. - Skullkid755

34 Ouija Board

My so-called "friend" (who I'm not going to name) is obsessed with paranormal stuff and always wants to use this damn thing. No offense, but I think she has a mental problem. - mayamanga

Some boys at my school were trying to make their own board and tricked a bunch of kids into thinking that a ghost had spoken to them...not me, though. - FloydtheCat

35 Bad Reality Shows


36 Hentai

Do kids even watch Hentai? - mayamanga

Hey, kids have been searing for porn since like the 60s


37 Anime

Ummm sorry but there is only two people other than me in my whole school who knows what anime is


38 Cartoons

Cartoons suck? You think that because you've only heard about the baby cartoons like Dora. What about The Simpsons and Futurama? Those are good cartoons that aren't meant for little kids. - FloydtheCat

There are many good cartoons man

Cartoons suck! - EliteRates


39 Teletubbies Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .

Once again... I fail to believe the people who made this list weren't on any form of grass when making it. If you are over the age of 8 and still care about this show, then that must be rare. - Swellow

Wait do Kid above four really care about this creepy baby show

40 Bullying
41 Rap Music

Only if it’s for mostly anything before 2007. 1980s and 1990s had the best rap music. 2000s was alright. 2010s is terrible and it will only get bad from there. Except some artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.

42 Sexualizing Themselves


43 iPhone 7

Apple just wants your money - Mcgillacuddy

Just get an upgrade
