Our latest mix, 00s Alternative, harkens back to moments prior when guitars and literal drums were more of a thing. Ah, the good old days.
In all seriousness, this era was filled with rock bands offering relevant commentary that was often honest, direct, and sometimes difficult to digest. Bands like The White Stripes came on the scene out of nowhere bringing a sound that was completely unique to the time. Clashy. Grimey. Incubus held strong with Morning View (my first rock CD, gifted Christmas of 2001) and, personal favorite political read of the decade, A Crow Left of the Murder. And I still get emotional when I listen to Youth of the Nation by P.O.D.
