Worst Trends that Kids are Into

The Top Ten

1 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.

Power Puff Girls + Twerking = Childhood ruined

Lol this whole list is just people who seem to old to use the internet getting angry over hastags - BestGrillIbuki

2 Dabbing

We came a long way, from this to Fortnite's floss. Fortnite is the worst videogame I have ever heard of.

Friend: *Dabs*

Me: Do that one more time and I'm gonna-


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

People who do it: Kill Thyself - SoldierOfFortune

3 Musical.ly

Me: *goes on a Bring it On: the Musical video and sees comment*
Comment: Anyone here from Musical.ly?
Me: 1. No, I'm here because I like the musical. 2., EVERYONE in this comment section is from that dumb app. - RoseWeasley

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

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

There are people here that have absolutely no talent (Jason satorius and about 12 of my friends ) that lip sync people whom actually have more or less talent depending on who they copy

4 Fidget Spinners

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.

Thanks to these toys trolls keep making fun of autism. Not good at all - Lunala

It helps you with your autism

Autism haters will die and get murdered

5 Tide Pod Challenge

I know I might be stupid but at least I don't eat tide pods. DAMMIT YOU USE THOSE FOR LAUNDRY NOT AS A SNACK

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

Please don't be this stupid kids - Toptenanimallovers

This should be banned

6 Instagram

Best social other than YouTube which I think is a social media?
Correct me if I'm wrong. - Luckys

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

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

Instagram is retarded

7 Fortnite: Battle Royale

Fortnite is the worst game ever made.

Brat, fortnite is trash and Pubg is better.

It’s everywhere around the world! Who cares if you get a #1 Victory Royale! Whats the point?!

WALLMART ninja is president - oangry

8 Sexualizing Themselves
9 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

I can't have normal conversations on the bus because kids are obsessed with this social trash app.

10 #Hashtag

I'd rather use that as a number symbol or tic-tac-toe board rather than a cringey symbol for one of the worst songs ever, "#selfie".

They use it to get likes that's why there's so much - Luckys

Instagram meme tags are some of the most vile, disgusting things to rise from the pits of hell. - Lunala

Over used by cringey ass little kids - soccerobsessed

The Contenders

11 Selfies

They're dumb - DumbWays2DieFan

12 YouTube Challenges



13 Roblox

My cousins are obsessed with this game. Not only does my 9 year old cousin play it, she also goes on YouTube and post likes and comments on the videos, too!

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

My 6 year old cousin is also into this - Lucy1402

My siblings are so OBSESSED with roblox - soccerobsessed

14 Modern Music

There are some good modern artists, like Adele, Blackpink (although I wish they sung about stuff other than love), and Imagine Dragons. But a lot of it is pretty annoying. - RoseWeasley

No such thing as modern music its just hey lets slag off singers after the 80s.

Justin bieber sucks

Why don't people stop listing to these god awful love songs that are all just the same and listen to something that has ACTUAL MEANING IN IT!

15 Bullying people while filming

Just pure savage! - Neonco31


16 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!

17 Roasting

2000s: Cook meat
2010s: Say something mean in a comedic way

Worst trend ever

18 'Oof' meme

Stupid, annoying, stupid, stupid, annoying, stupid

I love this! =( - CloudyDaze

19 Vine

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

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.

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

If they dare talk about my white vans, I'll run with my dignity. (Or either run them over.) - mermaidmanandgarfield13

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


21 3AM Challenge

Stupid click bait on YouTube - SoloPotato

These are fake. - Misfire

Please rageelixer stop the 3 am videos

22 Anime

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

ANIME IS AWESOME. - CartoonCriticizer


23 Keeping Up with the Kardashians

I like this show, but I've really taken an interest in Revenge Body with Khloe - Luckys

Most kids don’t watch this…

24 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!

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

I wouldn't do or recommend it, but I don't mind middle school dating. One is never to young to admire someone. - ProPanda

25 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.


26 Swag
27 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.

28 Bad Reality Shows

The only good reality shows I can think of are Terrace House and cooking shows. - RoseWeasley


Reality T.V. is the best T.V. and the best T.V. is reality T.V...got it good. - Luckys

29 Hentai

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


30 Call of Duty


31 Hating on Things for Being Popular
32 Toilet Humor

It's not like this is a new thing. Toilet humor has existed with kids for a loong time

Breadwinners is gross!

33 Hairlines

Who cares about hairlines

This is ridiculous. - Puga

This list is hairline to the buffet. - Skullkid755

What does this mean?

34 Grounded Videos
35 Whip/Nae Nae

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

Ugh this is annoying

It's a horrible song.

What is that?

36 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, ...read more.

Far as I know like nobody in my class supports him

I wish I was in your class. My class is a whole bunch of Trump lovers - CloudyDaze

Trend? Nah more like a cult

Attack On Donald Trump

a trend? - SoldierOfFortune

37 Bullying

This should be number one.

Bullying is So dumb! I mean WHY do people think it’s funny to hurt others

I mean, I would say Jake Paul. However, it’s the same thing - BestGrillIbuki

38 Kinder Surprise

It's not as annoying, my 6 year old cousin gives us those and it's sweet! - Lucy1402

39 David Bowie David Robert Jones, known professionally as David Bowie (January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016) was an English singer born in London, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He is credited for his experimental and creative musical discography which has won praise and accolades for many critics and fans. ...read more.

There is nothing bad about him!

No, Bowie is not a trend, nor do kids really know about him. - Critideal

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.


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

Caillou deserves it's hate. But Dora and other shows like it aren't that bad. - RoseWeasley

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.

41 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 ...read more.

Yes! I hate Teen Titans Go, but everyone at my school loves it. Blech.

The newer episodes are getting worse than before. Glad that I'm not watching it anymore. - Lucy1402


Pure crap - Neonco31

42 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.

Why is Justin Beiber popular - Ihateschool

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

43 Five Nights at Freddy's

My 6 year old cousin is into this! Now he's getting more annoying than ever! - Lucy1402

Why is it so popular? It sounds really stupid!


Ohps, ohps, ohps, need to warn my sister and brothers...
[One is only 3 and into FnAF thanks to my sis and dad] - HistorianaPhilippiniana

44 Trap Music
45 iPhone 7

Apple just wants your money - Mcgillacuddy

Just get an upgrade

46 Undertale



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

47 Pokemon Go

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

Pokemon Go itself is not bad, but people who are not being careful with the game make it look bad. - BorisRule

They're playing the wrong game - Neonco31


48 Hating Donald Trump

Meanwhile my class were talking about how Trump is the best and Democrats are stupid - Luckys

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.

49 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.

Jersey Shore is no longer relevant.

It literally says it ended in 2012 - Puga

They don't even live in new jersey
