    Wolfmother still has to put out a decent second album.

    I'd put LP on the list, and, depending on how their next two albums go, maybe MCR

    I know they've existed in other decades (most famously the 90s) but Red Hot Chili Peppers have done well for themselves since 2000. By the Way and Stadium Arcadium have both sold a ton (not to mention they are both damn good albums), and they're as popular as they've ever been.

    The fact that The Strokes haven't been mentioned yet is extremely sad.

    Anyways, my top 2000's bands would be
    1. The Strokes
    2. The Killers
    3. The White Stripes
    4. Arctic Monkeys

    However, The Strokes are on a different level than the other ones.

    - Projekt Revolution (its great because they give the lesser known bands more of a chance to become known)
    - Club Tattoo (i believe its Chesters Tattoo Parlor or something like that)

    i loooove the strokes. some of the best stuff out there.

    1. the strokes
    2. minus the bear - mellow but the way they play their guitars just blows the mind.
    3. kenna - i don't know how many would consider this a band, since its kinda just one guy, but when he's live, there's a band. the music is fantastic~
    4.We Are Scientists - they put on GREAT live shows, musically and comedically. they rock that much =]
    5. yeah yeah yeahs - make me want to jump around the house and break things, but in a good way =] though i show more love to the first album than the recent one, i really love the sound these guys have. <3

    Its hard to not mention bands that weren't formed in the 90s and made it big. Not one band really stands out for me which was formed 2000 and after.

    RHCP (probably not considered a 2000s band, but still perform better than most after all their time in the music industry)
    SOAD
    LP

    Those are the only bands that I can think of that have their albums packed with hits, and no filler

    other bands that were mentioned like the killers, and tool, I like but they just haven't done enough to be considered one of the greats IMO

    I'd like to put Sum 41 and three days grace on a top 5 list, but I'd rather not put any band on a list that even a handfull of people would not like, so its just the 3 for me

    I like a lot of your lists. Accurate and to the point, and screw the bashers. Sure Linkin Park might not be as talented as a drugged out 60's band, but they write catchy tunes that are left in your mind, and as the last post said "No filler. All hits."

    -I hope that's a joke because all the bands you mentioned lack talent in many places.
    -Do people actually go to that bar?
    -What's a "tabliod"? Do you mean tabloid? I never actually hear much of him in the news, in fact, the last thing I heard is that the Gods of Rock were trying to kill their lead "guitarist"(If you can call him one). Maybe to little preteens, yes, but other than that, no one's really interested in them.




    Now on topic:

    1. Killswitch Engage
    2. Wolfmother
    3. White Stripes
    4. CKY
    5. Avenged Sevenfold


    BTW ppl, Linkin Park, SOAD, Korn, and NIN were around in the 90's.

    I really don't think this thread is about which bands have the most hits...
    RHCP, SOAD, and certainly LP don't even touch bands like Tool or Radiohead in terms of complexity and musical talent.

    I'm not sure--like most people say, most of the best current bands were not formed in the 2000's.

    I will say Tool and Radiohead...yes I'm biased, but next person who says Fall out Boy or Linkin Park is going to get stabbed.

    If you ask me, I'd say that The Mars Volta is by far the best band in the past 10 years. They are way more talented and innovative than any other band you could list. They aren't very popular, but most of the best bands now are that way.

    I'd also say that Porcupine Tree would have to be up there too, much better than any other American bands at the time.

    I have to disagree with one of your statements.RHCP has great musical talent aswell as SOAD.Both have great guitarists with thier own uniqe style.Thier bassists are great.THier drummers know what thier doing.And last but not least, both vocalists voices are amazing (though maybe an aquired taste).And the fact that Serj played every instrument on his solo albumn proves the point im trying to convey.Also, fall out boy:D
