Here's the spelled out cleverness of 420Se's Aussie offering.
'Naughties' is a kid age play on the word nought* which can mean nothing or zero (*look it up your 'Fuckin Wangall' dictionary) - thus the years '01 to '09 being 'Noughties' - cheesed up as 'Naughties' for humourous intent.
So, calling the next decade 2010 -2019 ' -''Teens' (kid wise) is a natural follow on.

'Me, Me, and Screw Everyone Else,' seems to be the sentiment among those, who see themselves as 'up and comers.'
The next decade, perhaps 'Me, Myself, and I.'
Besides my ramblings here (really good Scotch), Drew's WTF has my vote.
