DarkerAndEdgier became the norm in music aimed at teens, as muic and culture took a turn for the gothic and macarbe with a shift from [[ContractualPurity squeaky-clean]] [[TeenIdol teen idols]] to {{Pop punk}}, [[EmoMusic emo]], and PostHardcore bands such as Music/GoodCharlotte, Music/SimplePlan and Music/JimmyEatWorld in the early part of the decade. This genre exploded in 2005 with the rise of Music/FallOutBoy, Music/MyChemicalRomance, Music/{{AFI}} and similar acts, all of whom shared a focus on lyrics about serious topics such as mental and physical illness, sexual infidelity, and America's unhealthy obsession with tabloid stars. The subculture associated with the genre, known as emo, took high schools by storm with its sideswept bangs, skinny jeans, and heavy eye makeup. Ultimately it became one of the defining alternative rock genres of the decade with literally everyone having memories of listening to those bands in middle and high school. However just as the genre was reaching the peak of its popularity in 2008, Fall Out Boy's ''Folie à Deux'' showed a drastic shift in the band's sound and was met with mediocre commercial success, which started a chain reaction. By 2009, pop-punk and emo began its fall from the mainstream thanks to several factors: bands drastically changing their sound, [[MyChemicalRomance breaking up]], or [[FallOutBoy going on hiatus]]; oversaturation by an endless string of one-hit wonders; creation and heavy promotion of manufactured bands like TheJonasBrothers by Disney and Nickelodeon as [[TheMoralSubstitute wholesome substitutes]] for authentic emo bands (resulting in the genre as a whole being branded as immature tween fodder); and the replacement of "emo" as popular music with [[LadyGaga electronic]] [[KatyPerry pop]] and as a culture with the "scene" trend - basically emo with lots of '80s-inspired big hair, makeup, neon, and HelloKitty accessories.

The decade was a hard one for the United States, whose population suffered from, in quick succession: a controversial presidential election where [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush the winner]] didn't win the popular vote, but did win in the electoral college; the worst terrorist attack in recorded history with a death toll of 2,977 (excluding the 19 perpetrators of the attack); the Patriot Act undermining civil liberties; two [[{{Understatement}} somewhat unpopular]] wars (one of which was started on what turned out to be BlatantLies); the [[WhoForgotTheLights worst electrical blackout]] in American history; the Space Shuttle ''Columbia'' disaster, the second in American history and the beginning of the end of the country's manned space program; another controversial presidential election; the catastrophic flooding of New Orleans thanks to Hurricane Katrina and the failure of the federal government to properly respond to said flooding; a surge in both aforementioned wars as it became very clear that things were not going as planned; the gradual transformation from the largest government budget surplus in American history, to the largest government budget deficit in American history; and the start of the [[HistoryRepeats worst economic crisis]] since TheGreatDepression, with millions of Americans unemployed and many more struggling at the decade's end. This resulted in the rise of Neo-Conservative interventionist politics, which led to those two [[{{Understatement}} somewhat unpopular]] foreign wars, and the strengthening of 'The Special Relationship' with Britain - where Clinton and British PM John Major had disliked each other, first Clinton, then Bush, got on very well with the charming Tony Blair, who despite being leader of the traditionally left wing Labour party, shared a similarly interventionist outlook, one only bolstered by a successful intervention in Sierra Leone in 1999.

The To say that this decade was a hard one for the United States, States is an understatement, whose population suffered from, in quick succession: the dot com bubble burst which affected many websites; a controversial presidential election where [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush the winner]] didn't win the popular vote, but did win in the electoral college; the worst terrorist attack in recorded history with a death toll of 2,977 (excluding the 19 perpetrators of the attack); the Patriot Act undermining civil liberties; two [[{{Understatement}} somewhat unpopular]] wars (one of which was started on what turned out to be BlatantLies); the [[WhoForgotTheLights worst electrical blackout]] in American history; the Space Shuttle ''Columbia'' disaster, the second in American history and the beginning of the end of the country's manned space program; another controversial presidential election; the catastrophic flooding of New Orleans thanks to Hurricane Katrina and the failure of the federal government to properly respond to said flooding; a surge in both aforementioned wars as it became very clear that things were not going as planned; the gradual transformation from the largest government budget surplus in American history, to the largest government budget deficit in American history; and the start of the [[HistoryRepeats worst economic crisis]] since TheGreatDepression, with millions of Americans unemployed and many more struggling at the decade's end.

* HistoryRepeats: There were many similarities towards the 70's (politically, especially in the late 2000s with the worst economic recession, the gas crisis, and the fact that [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking the cartoons had a very steep decline in quality, especially compared to the 1990s cartoons]]), and, in the entertainment industry, the 80's (With more music genres and technology then ever before)

* AllCGICartoon: Disney and other animation companies abandoned traditional animation during this decade, though towards the end of the decade there was some hope that the two might coexist. Of course, anime is stronger than ever before and still averts this trope for the most part. Furthermore, this form finally began to break down the AllAnimationIsDisney stereotype beginning with DreamworksAnimation hitting the big time with their 2001 smash hit CGI feature, ''{{Shrek}}'', becoming the first real feature animation company to challenge Disney over the long term, although it would have a period of artistic decline until it came roaring back in 2008 with a new quality commitment in 2008 with ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''.
