Alas, we delve deep into the 2000s. Felt it best to give us until the new decade to really celebrate the incredible music of Y2k, especially rock. Ya know? I mean, kids these days don’t even remember Wheatus! awkward.
Certainly, some famously mockable pop-rock derived from this time period courtesy of Nickelback, Jason Mraz et al. Simultaneously, though, 2k blessed us with Coldplay’s debut album Parachutes and the early aughts birthed a bevy of classic, iconic laid back indie-rock / power-pop from Rooney, Phantom Planet and nearly every band featured on The O.C. We also met the clever quips of Ben Kweller and Ok Go and the wintery mix of Snow Patrol’s Final Straw. Modest Mouse’s Good News for People Who Love Bad News helped us all Float On. Then, of course, there’s Ms. Avril.
I could go on – this is hands down some of my favorite stuff ever 🤓 truly hope this playlist brighten your days.
And how it changed the indie canon
