Rock Since 2000

Wish I had a dime for every time someone said something to the effect of, “why aren’t they making good music anymore?” My standard answer is that there’s as much good music now as ever, but you’re much less likely to hear it on the radio or see it on TV. This list and its R&B cousin point you to some of the recent music that’s moved me and hasn’t grown old. I’ll be changing the lists from time to time, and at some point will boil out a best of 2000-2010.
