Rolling Stone‘s Top 10 Songs of the 2000s

Mainstream charts in the 2000s were all over the place. No one genre dominated. Instead, the charts included R&B, pop-rock, hip-hop, and country-pop artists. The 2K’s were also the dawn of reality TV superstars from American Idol such as country artist Carrie Underwood, pop artist Kelly Clarkson, and rock band Daughtry. America also saw an influx of British female singers like Adele, Duffy, and Amy Winehouse. Other female stars included Avril Lavigne, Pink, Michelle Branch, and ended with Lady Gaga. Hip-hop dominated the 2000s and became more accepted by most Americans.

Popular hip-hop artists included 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Eminem, The Black Eyed Peas, and OutKast. Eminem became the best-selling rapper of all time during that decade. Rock moved away from the 1990s grunge to the alt-rock of Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, and Kings Of Leon.

We also saw a new genre of heavy metal and hard rock bands carried over from the late 1990s – rap-metal, and rap-rock. Starting with Limp Bizkit and now staying strong with the likes of Staind, Evanescence, and Papa Roach. Bubblegum pop became Teen Pop in the 2000s and stayed strong with artists like Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, and Christina Aguilera. There was also a steady flow of boy bands such as the Jonas Brothers and V Factory.

The music industry forever changed in the Decade of the 2000s with the widespread use of the Internet. — especially with “sharing” files. Free file transfer sites broke the scene in the late 1990s. As they gained popularity in the early 2000s on Kazaa and Napster, people downloaded music at scale.

Then, the government stepped in, as this activity was highly illegal (copyright infringement). Musicians lost out on royalties and then Apple released their MP3 player — the iPod. With the iPod, Apple also released the iTunes app and store. The general public could now purchase and legally download music right to their computer or mobile players! “A thousand songs in your pocket” and your personal soundtrack played right into the me-centric millennials. Social networking sites such as MySpace helped promote the obscure and unknown into stardom.

Mainstream R&B artists played on many iPods with Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and Usher. We would say the biggest growth in music from previous years was country-pop from the beginnings of Garth Brooks to nowadays Brad Paisley. Country music is now being more accepted and purchased by the general public with the growing popularity of country-pop artists such as Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, and Shania Twain.

It should also be noted that particular songs of pop and rock stars are now seen as country-pop with Kid Rock, Jewel, and Bon Jovi. Jazz also saw a resurgence in the 2000s with artists like Norah Jones, Michael Bublé, and Diana Krall.
