I was just thinking about what the iconic songs of the 00's will be. It doesn't matter what genre the song is or whether or not you like it. It's just what you think some of the most popular songs of the decade were.

70's had Stairway to Heaven, Free Bird etc.

80's had Welcome to the Jungle, Livin' on a Prayer etc.

90's had Smells Like Teen Spirit, Baby One More Time etc.

And yes, I know there's going to be a lot of people who say "None, because music sucks nowadays".

I say Drive by Incubus and Vertigo by U2.

EDIT: Just thought of another one. Can't Stop by RHCP. I think everybody has at least heard the riff.
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

Proud fan of Pop, Rap, Rock, and Metal.

System of a Down - BYOB
Tool - Schism
A Perfect Circle - Judith

for the early 00's anyway those ones come to mind for me

Eh, those two weren't really that popular. I hardly ever hear Drive on pop stations anymore, and I've only heard Vertigo once or twice on the radio.

None really come to mind at the moment tbh.

My Humps - Black Eyed Peas

RHCP - Dani California
Kid Rock - All Summer Long

Those songs were commercially stellar.
#8
Dani California - RHCP
Viva la Vida - Coldplay
maybe Vertigo - U2

With the introduction of online filesharing and the general increase in the number of bands there really aren't any single iconic songs that represent the entire decade.

Edit: Or Beautiful Day - U2

all of the music today is too bland to have anything that is considered "iconic". Especially in comparison to Stairway, or SLTS.

If I had to answer though, it'd definitely be some kinda rap. Or Fall Out Boy/ Green Day.

I love One Armed Scissors and Sleepwalk Capsules by ATDI but they weren't really famous

EDIT: And I thought Octavarium by DT is one of the greatest songs of all time let alone of this decade

Well the most iconic songs are usually one-hit wonders with stupidly large sell-out gigs. So who's sold out the biggest arenas this century? Those are your commercially successful "iconic" songs. But our decade has become an umbrella, you can put the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's into genres by commercial success, i.e. Classic Rock/Psychedelic Rock with the sixties, going Progressive Rock come 70's as well perhaps the start of Rap groups, then 80's split into metal bands of many assorts inspired by prog, but also created a lot of Synth Pop, and the cult bands at the time were doing the jangly Marr stuff. 90's had a massive wave of mainstream grunge, you know, Cobain. As for the 00's... It's hard to really define a genre... Perhaps the pop music that we know now? We can't even say that we're the indie generation because there aren't any "Iconic" anthems by indie bands.. You know, otherwise they wouldn't be Indie.

I know bands like Foo Fighters and Muse (whom I'm not really a fan of) have played really big sell-out gigs recently, I know that there's a lot Hip Hop music that's popular with people but I dunno about the size of their gigs.

Personally I don't think we have our iconic songs. Oh well.


Edit: I'm looking up some songs, Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes has had a bit of notoriety, perhaps that might make a candidate?

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

In the UK, I'm sure this is true. But in America they're actually not that iconic. Though I fear they're starting to...

Only two more months dude, even if a new album came out, it would really be accepted as a 2010 thing by this point anyway. (From an economic pov it makes sense too)
