Best Music of the 00's ?
There has been loads of amazing music over the last decade but you have to work to find it. You’ll rarely hear it on the radio. Pitchforks recent lists includes some amazing stuffPosted 7 years agosimply_oli_yMember
As said loads of good music this decade. If after a defining genre.i would say its all about underground going Mainstream. Slam, by pendulum. Was the 1st drum and bass track to be played on daytime radio. Since than there’s been loads of that, dance, dubstep. The list goes on. What gets. Played on the radio has never been so varied.Posted 7 years agoGlitterGaryMember
Yeah, it probably is Coldplay, God indeed help us.
I really used to keep up to date with new music but realised I always go back to old music with more ‘quality.’ A lot of new albums you listen to you think sound great for the first two listens, and then realise they aren’t too great after all.
One other thing, I’d say that Hip-Hop was the defining sound of the 80’s, yeaaahh boyee. Not of this Gangsta nonsense of course, except NWA.
The 00’s to me seemed like largely a re-hash of music gone by, often watered down versions of exisiting music unfortunately.Posted 7 years agothomthumbMember
real man aluded it to it earlier the 00s was the time of the ‘ipod generation’
my space and the ipod have done more to change the way we listen to music since the invention of the crystal radio. previously subcultures had centred around a music genre, of course there was cross over and fringe genres, however since the release of the ipod the subculture, and the music that traditionally defined these, have been restructured.
Look at the typical ipod playlist and it will cover a vast variety of music, rock, pop, unsigned bands hip hop. a few golden oldies etc etc.Posted 7 years agojohn_drummerMember
Btw my list wasn’t necessarily stuff I like, just stuff I could remember off the top of my head
Countzero’s list – most of those acts I may have heard of even if I can’t say I know.
Meanwhile, I wouldn’t recognise Arctic Monkeys or Pigeon Detectives if they slapped me in the face 😉Posted 7 years agochakapingSubscriber
And Amy Winehouse of course. She’s quite iconic with her beehive hair and drug problems.
Dizzee is a good shout, it’s great the way he came from the grime scene and collaborates with producers from all different genres to make pop hits.
On a more general note, I’m sure I remember people saying this at the end of the ’90s too.Posted 7 years agomogrimMember

Seems to be just average solo artists and x factor style stuff about recently and the real music hasn’t come to the fore front. Can anyone restore my faith in modern music and think of some great bands?
Like TJ says, you’re getting old.
I reckon the defining sound of the 80s in the UK was probably Wham and Stock/Aitken/Waterman, rather than rap.Posted 7 years agojohn_drummerMember

I have to agree there, but also throw in electronica such as Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, Blancmange, Yazoo, Erasure (Vince Clark responsible for 3 of those!) and so on
on the underground side, post-punk, which eventually became goth, was pretty big for a while, certainly in Leeds & BradfordPosted 7 years ago
