    Brilliant top 5, Back to black isn't one of my favourites though.
    I was the only one who had the winning song top? Awkward! :laugh: The Scientist is definitely one of my favourites from the time period. Depends on the day, but probs like this song more, I bought the single on cassette! All that rewinding and fast forwarding eh. Dark days...



    RHCP - BTW, is one of favourite albums so I'd have a rep of that in there too...


    X&Y was awful, so bland. That's when I got off the Coldplay hype train. Their career culminating in sell out hell with that Paradise song which is so annoying. They used to be good...

    I'm shocked it got to number 1, but I do bloody love this song and I can understand why it got the votes it did.

    Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head are classic albums and I have no interest in anything Coldplay after them.

    I've posted in this thread already about this song - by far Muse's greatest moment.

    The Scientist is a worthy winner. Such a great, timeless song. Thank's for running @Tomohawk. This was great fun.

    One song I forgot was Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine but for some odd reason thought it was from 2010/11. .:fail:

    I'd say this era was more about albums than individual songs for me. I used to actually sit down and consume new albums as a whole. I don't anymore, just shuffle songs these days.

    Damien Rice - O
    The Strokes - Is this it
    Red Hot Chilli Peppers - By the way
    Kings of Leon - Youth & young manhood
    Coldplay - Rush of blood to the head
    Muse - Absolution
    The Libertines - Up the bracket
    Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP (& Dr Dre's1999 effort)

    Are all albums I remember buying as soon as they came out and rinsing.

    Kayne West - Late Registration, Arctic Monkeys - WPSIATWIM, Green Day - American Idiot, Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever to tell, Arcade Fire - Funeral, some more good ones.

    Funny you should say that as I recall the early 2000s being when I actually started to listen to full albums. I'd been more about the singles and mainstream releases in the 90s but was more open to listening to full albums and finding the lesser known quality tracks hidden low down the playlist of an album

    Thank you @Tomohawk for your sterling efforts to provide distraction and widen our musical knowledge and appreciation in these troubled times.

    Although I've not managed to follow the reveals live, I've enjoyed dipping into the outcomes - if only to get a greater insight into the musical tastes of fellow participants.

    The 1990s sounds promising, with more opportunities to share the best of Argentina's rock/ska scene, Alabama 3 hitting the airwaves, Buena Vista Social Club coinciding with a trip to Cuba to see the world's smallest bird, my favourite Neil Young album, Ragged Glory - which led me to Grunge and Pearl Jam.

    I guess we'll have to tolerate airings for Oasis and friends but hope we'll also find some fellow fans of Soda Stereo.

    I'm looking forward to the 90s one, will deffo take part in that one from the start. Such a huge variety of songs. The best dance music came from that era. Classic hip hop. Peak Radiohead, grunge, some great britpop singles. Lots of quality alternative stuff. Got it all.

    Oh dear. :laugh:

    Perhaps you should actually take the trouble to play the Lose Yourself video that @Tomohawk put up before writing such nonsense. It's the radio edit, as is the other Eminem video for Stan, so that's why it hasn't "been taken down already".

    Thanks for your efforts on this once again @Tomohawk, brilliantly organised as usual. :clap::clap::clap:

    Thanks @Tomohawk, we can tell you put a lot of effort in and I think everyone has enjoyed it.

    Like others said before, I wasn't a fan of Amy Winehouse in the beginning and though I don't listen to her a great deal. Looking and listening back, she was an exceptional talent. Whether that's because of her early death, gives extra depth and meaning to her songs, who knows? What you can't question, is her incredible voice.

    I tend agree to agree, though there may not be many songs that I would put up against other decades. I think there are plenty of albums, adding a few too your list.

    Franz Ferdinand (self titled first album)
    Kasabian (self titled first album)
    QOSTA - Songs for the deaf
    Interpol - Turn on the bright lights ('Untitled' is beautiful hence why it's been used in countless movies & TV)

    Eminem definitely deserves a top 10 finish. I voted for Stan but there are a few I prefer including Just lose it & Til I collapse.

    EDIT: can we please have a revote? :laugh: It's a great song and the two albums are strong but are we really giving the best song of the 00's to Coldplay? The French wouldn't put up with this....

    Are you saying this is another vote that Europe can mock us about? :D

    Who can forget such classic lyrics as: "The subway she is a porno" :laugh: Yeah I bought all those albums too, 'NYC 'was my favourite off the Interpol one. I saw Kasabian prior to their album release so was always buying their album, first band I saw live. A song sounding like 'Take me out' from a random band that seemingly came from nowhere, getting to number 1... We were blessed in hindsight. Feels like good 'guitar music' started dying out after this decade... So much good stuff around in this one that it would even dominate the mainstream charts now and again.

    @Machida the song made top ten.

    Thanks for hosting @Tomohawk . I really enjoyed participating in it & discovered a new favourite band in Alabama 3.

    I feel guilty that I overlooked the superb album, Midnight Organ Fight by Frightened Rabbit. If only @Minty had have been involved in this he would surely have introduced the great track, The Modern Leper to the good people of FF.

    And thanks to @Tomohawk once again for a brilliant effort.

    Ah, sod it, here's the track I've been spouting on about;
