Re: Seminal Bands/Artists of the Last 20 Years

In terms of more recent stuff, because you guys have covered a lot of the main 90's stuff, I'd say Christina Aguilera is probably pretty important in terms of pop, and if I had to choose one album it would be Stripped, as well as Rihanna's Good Girl Gone Bad. They were wildly popular and examples of the pure pop/hip-hop pop split we got this past decade. Though you might even want to throw Taylor Swift in there for good measure with her country stylings.

I'd also say Kanye West and M.I.A. lady rap/alternative hip hop! They're both popular AND acclaimed AND good representations of the kind of music that's been around recently.

In terms of rock, I think that The Killer's Hot Fuzz is essential for any 00's discussion. Though I do admit, picking and choosing the rock music of the past two decades would be tricky. The first that come to mind are Radiohead and Oasis, already mentioned, and if push came to shove, I would probs forfeit the Killers for them.
