Who agrees?

I personally think it's the worst decade ever for music. IMO, badly beaten by the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s for sure.

I agree
and yes the 80s sucked too but if you dig deep enough, there was some really good punk and alternative stuff
#5
I somewhat agree. The music (i am speaking of the actual talent in this decade) is good, the lyrics are good, just they don't mix in a pleasant way.

ps to the person above me music fr3ak i think. You weren't even alive in the 80's. It was the experience of having new music after what came before. Not that it was all good, cause by the 90's I couldn't stand it, but by 2000, I found an appreciation for it.
leave me alone, please.

I don't know like the older artists from past decades have come on with some good albums this decade like Velvet Revolver Tom Petty and Pearl Jam but as far as new acts I completely agree well maybe in a tie with the 80's for worst and the damn 1340's damn that's why they call it the "Dark Ages" isn't it?

You can only say that if you haven't looked past commercialized music like Fall Out Boy and other B.S. on MTV.

I think music now is good despite occasionally dumb lyrics
"For Us, For Them, For You"
#9
Wolf Parade
Broken Social Scene
Stars
Metric
Do Make Say Think
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
The Dears
Matthew Good
Malajube
The New Pornographers
The Deadly Snakes

say otherwise. And that's just the good Canadian bands.

good Canadian indie bands, you mean. Stars and The New Pornographers are hot sex. Broken Social Scene is good, too. The Dandy Warhols are pretty excellent, at that.
#11
And to build on the past couple comments, there are plenty more awesome Canadian bands.

The Junction
Magneta Lane
Death From Above 1979 (now defunct)
Arcade Fire
Tokyo Police Club

and plenty more too.

I personally do not enjoy most of the music from the 80s that is classified as hair metal...it's just not my cup of tea. This is the first decade of music I've truly 'experienced' as throughout the 90s I was young, and I loathed all music.

I'm actually very happy with recent music, if you get past the majority of mainstream rock music.
#12
I like this band called Matchbox 20.... They're from the late 90s, but continued to a few years ago.
Got Death Magnetic a day early!

True, I've yet to see any real great bands surface in the 2000s. Most of the critically-acclaimed rock bands that are around right now started in the 90s (SoaD, Muse, RHCP, Incubus, Tool, etc).

I'm personally a fan of The Strokes, The Vines and The Hives. They all started off in too 00s, didn't they?
#16
^ Ew, I hate those bands :-/


Anyways, all three of those bands started in the 90s.

Well...I guess no good (mainstream) rock bands have started this decade. Most of the bands I like that have started in this decade are Canadian indie.

ok, you can call me out on that, I wasn't alive in the 80's, but this guy up top wasn't alive in the 60's, 70's, and basically not the 80's (his date says 1988) anyways if your gonna call me out for not liking the 80's please call him out on his praise of the decades he didn't live through as well

and just in case it didn't click with you yet, I wasn't alive in the 1340's either

Actually, upon listening, I happen to disagree with you. The songwriting isn't bad on it. You just dislike it. It's not the most technically challenging music, but I get irritated with people who judge music by that standard.

No, dude, the 1340s were awesome. Have you listened to some of the vocal harmonzing from back then? It's pretty inventive.

Except none of those bands are really critically acclaimed, except for RHCP who haven't made a consistent album since BSSM.

I would call Tool critically acclaimed....and I thought Californication was a very solid effort, I enjoyed it.

Californication's first half was good. The rest... not so much. As for Tool being critically acclaimed:

They're all critically acclaimed (except for maybe SoaD, never heard of them).

I'm really enjoying rock music this decade, we got MUSE ( ) and Green Day and The Offspring have new albums coming out.

Stadium Arcadium was a bit of a dissapointment though.
