But to leave out things I loved just because they're not as "cool" in hindsight would be doing a tremendous disservice to how my tastes have evolved over ten years.
Exactly. I turned 11 in 2000 myself, and the Eminem and 50 Cent albums showing up on my list are a direct result of my listening earlier in the decade. The Marshall Mathers LP holds up decidedly better than Get Rich or Die Tryin', but both were some of the first hip-hop I listened to (gangsta rap was my specialty back then and all), which has, obviously, had a HUGE impact on my current listening habits, in which hip-hop is still a staple.

They opened for REM (on more than one tour I think), Pearl Jam, and U2. Strangely, when I first became a Bang and Clatter regular, they were one of the most popular bands on here. That was one of the reasons I became a regular, to talk Idlewild.

Here's an example (probably the biggest single from 100 Broken Windows):

Does anyone know anything about these guys?

All I know of them is that Stephen King loves them - he brings them up in his Entertainment Weekly column often. I saw one of their albums on a top of the decade list, and checked it out. It didn't do anything for me.

I feel like they're in town a lot, although I can't say I've ever listened to them or know anyone who has.

Did anyone see Metacritic's Best of the Decade lists? The album list is what you'd expect, and suffers from the same problems they always do for music, but I found the Artists lists really interesting, as they base it on overall reviews and total number of releases that artist had for the decade. i think you'll be impressed with what artists made the top 35:

The Best Music of the Decade - Metacritic
Super Furry Animals at #3.

RESPECT.

If that's your top 10, then I couldn't, personally, even begin to agree any more vehemently. I mean, I'm serious, but not mean-spiritedly.
