Cultural Reset is a phrase common on Twitter referring to a moment in music film and pop-culture that changed the genre or all of society in some way. The phrase is used both ironically and sincerely mostly by stan accounts tweeting about their favorite artists.

In March 2019, according to Junkee[2] the term "was famously first used by Rose McGowan while discussing the #MeToo movement with ABC. When explaining how the #MeToo changed the world, Rose called it a “cultural reset” rather than a movement" (shown below).
