Woman stirs generational debate with music-listening video: ‘She should not have posted this’
A TikTok user is sparking a major generational debate after sharing a video that revealed her lack of 2000s music knowledge.
The user, @joclizzzlemynizzzle, originally shared the clip to her own TikTok account, where it’s since been removed.
In the video, which has now been recirculated on Twitter, the young woman participates in the “2000s Challenge,” which asks social media users to live-react to series of 10 hit songs from the decade.
Participants are asked to hold up 10 fingers, then take one down for each song they’re able to sing along with. In theory, a “true 2000s kid” would end the challenge with no fingers remaining, meaning they knew every track.
But @joclizzzlemynizzzle had a slightly different experience, as her inability to recognize certain several songs left some Twitter users completely outraged.

The TikToker was able to point out Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” and 50 Cent’s “In da Club,” but she failed miserably on tracks like Usher’s “Burn” and Keri Hilson’s “Knock You Down.” She also missed on Kanye West’s “All of the Lights,” a song that actually came out in 2010.
Those errors sparked a wide-spanning debate when Twitter user Addie Jimenez shared the video. Jimenez’s version of the post quickly went viral, racking up nearly 3.5 million views and thousands of flabbergasted comments.
“As soon as she didn’t know Usher I cut the video,” one user wrote.
“This young lady needs an education,” another added.
“She should not have posted this,” yet another commented.
Several comments seemed to come from millennials and older generations, who grew up or were fully grown during the 2000s. Still, some younger users also shared their disbelief.
“As a person born in the 2000s I do not condone this. Should’ve just kept this in your camera roll,” one Twitter user wrote.
“14 year olds AT LEAST know all of the lights smh,” another added.
