  1. apparently you have never heard the arctic monkeys.

    i love the strokes but they will always be second to the arctic monkeys.

    pretty good list though.

  2. Good list in most ways but have missed some difining moments for our age music, I am taking a guess that you are my age as you have included a heavy inclination of OC music. The only really problem I have with your list is you have been at times snobby towards more covered bands i.e.The American Idiot album is explosive and deserves to be at least on your list and you are forgetting that the Libertines best and more moving album is The Libertines

    I feel this list is more albums you like from this era not the actual best albums

  3. hmmm not a very good list, like Nick said you have missed out some cruicial bands, what about foo fighters for example? Blink 182, Greenday? Incubus? Red hot chillis? half of those bands listed seem like real underground shoegaze outfits that noones ever heard of, furthermore the kooks inside in: inside out is an immense album and the killers hot fuss is probably the best indie album ever, deserves a top 20 finish.

    • omg thank you so much! i was like foo fighters? red hot chili peppers? my two favorite bands that are still releasing today? how about by the way and stadium arcadium in that time range (2000-2006)

  4. Everyone’s comments are hilarious. I dread to think what people would say if I compiled my own list.

    I gotta say, I love that on one page there is the Wicked Soundtrack, a shoutout to amazing New Zealand music, and At The Drive In. I don’t agree with everything, but nice work on those ones particularly!

  5. Linkin Park’s debut album “Hybrid Theory” should be atleast in your top 5, it’s one of the greatest debut albums in history selling over 10 million copies worldwide making it a diamond record. Not to mention the band being one of, if not the greatest american rock band of this century…i mean seriously the band has been together for 8 years releasing 4 albums which have sold a combined 50 million copies worldwide.

  6. this list sucks. i only heard about 5 of these albums and the rest of the bands i don’t know. you are forgetting about a lot of great artists (black eyed peas, avril lavigne, shania twain, celine dion etc.). make a better list next time.

  7. I agree with laura it cracks me up to see people get so upset over someone elses opinion. I was attracted to your list because I love bloc party, muse and the strokes to a lesser extent. and now I know about nada surf and stellastarr who id never heard of. Im from oz, u might want to check out You am I, not big worldwide, but would fit in this list easy. Cheers.

  8. Well personally I salute you for having “Is this it?” at number one, seeing it is in fact the greatest album of this decade (In my opinion of all time). Though in saying that, don’t bands like The Strokes and Muse have more than one album in the top 100. E.g “Room on Fire” or “Absolution”?

  9. This list should be called greatest albums of the 21st century for people who think they are cool cause they listen to indie music that is hardly ever creative or pleasant to listen to

  10. This list is for fags. Saves the Day, Fall Out Boy; and mind you ahead of The Wrens, Built to Spill?! You’re a douche bag in high school who has no music credibility. And to all you fags who ask where Greenday and Lincoln Park are on the list, read a legitimate music article. This generation of talentless mainstream listeners makes me shit myself and eat it, and rape little children.

      • where is green day, coheed and cambria,chli peppers,black eyed peas,porcipine tree,bon jovi i hate bon jovi but i don’t even know most of these except weaser

    • Ha, previous commentit’d be kinda difficult given this list was compiled before The Arcade fire released Funeral!

      Take it easy guys, it’s only the writer’s opinion. it’s as valid as yours.

  11. I thought that this was a decent list. I agree with most that there are things missing, but ultimately it’s the author’s opinion. At least this person actually felt like they could post something like this. I doubt any of you jerks would actually make a list and display things for judgement. And btdubs, American Idiot probably isn’t on here because that was the worst Green Day album ever.
