    Listening to the radio earlier today, they were playing music from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 'today'! Don't they know what this decade is called either?
    It's not the 00s; and what decade is it when it's 2010-2019?

    It's "the decade with no name".
    Or for me, it's the 40s ;)

    Definitely noughties. It's an interesting question though whether the first decade AD was the only decade to not be a decade or whether the decade starts with a 1. The same goes with centuries too.

    2010 - 2019 could be the tenties, and so we don't get confuzzled with the 1920's the next decade could be the twoties?

    'This decade' will fill the bill now and then after 2010 it could be called the last decade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
