In 2001, after years of Korn and Britney tyranny, it suddenly became cool to make guitar music again. If you were in a band, you had your choice of two sounds: garage rock and dance-punk. That may be oversimplifying things a bit, but in the wake of the Strokes, the White Stripes, Interpol, and Franz Ferdinand, an awful lot of groups jumped on one of those bandwagons. A lot of them wore conductor hats, and most were pretty terrible. But some were actually decent, and their CDs — as in compact discs, as in you bought ‘em at Best Buy for $9.99 — were the soundtrack to an era everyone seems to have forgotten. It’s time we dig out the following 10 albums and make ‘00s nostalgia a thing.

I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your site. It appears as if some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Many thanks

If you are planning to buy mobile phones for your job need then you should effort to buy it in big lot. Another bonus, being able to store food until you want to use it saves you money and cuts waste, saving you even more money. Between utilities, gas for your car and payoffs to shady law enforcement officials to overlook the occasional noise complaint or missing virgin, your wallet is getting stretched a bit thin.

You really make it seem so easy with your
presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I
think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for
me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the
hang of it!

I get you guys are a bunch of hipster shitbags, but Korn made guitar music. May not be for the Strokes blowing crowd such as yourself, but those are indeed guitars in Korn.

Have to disagree with you guys about the Pretty Girls Make Graves entry there. While any mention of PGMG is worthy, Elan Vital just wasn’t as strong as The New Romance to me (and most). It just lacks the urgency and layers of The New Romance (it also suffers from loss of a integral part of their dynamic guitar one-two punch). Some would argue that TNR lacked the energy of TNR, and I guess that’s true for fans of the more brash, angrier, slightly punkier Good Health. But The New Romance was both brash AND beautiful, and Elan Vital seemed to lack both qualities.

It seems silly to argue over a band that’s been pretty dead in the water for a good seven or so years, but The New Romance stands as one of my favorite albums of the 00’s, so I have to stand up for it when I can. :)

I listen to a lot of these bands in my shuffle frequently. Was listening to the D4 and Hot Hot Heat just this morning actually.
