Really bad[edit]

This article is really, truly bad. I'm going to see what I can do to improve it, but I'm not knowledgeable in every subject, even relating to music. Ugh. bob rulz (talk) 08:45, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't be the best editor either, but I'll try to improve it a little and remove things that don't belong. RKFS (talk) 21:08, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

I dont feel that the statement about Amy Winehouse is applicable in any sense. She didnt have a dramatic influence on popular music in this decade and I wouldnt call most of her music rock and especially not jazz-rock...thats a whole other genre completely...Also, It seems that the majority of this page bases a genre of music on small examples from entirely mainstream music sources which have had little relevance on music as a whole to this generation, especially so in the"Dance Music" section and the reference to a sixties pop revival where the author referred to singles which really had no impact on these areas...I personally listen to a lot of sixties pop revival bands and a lot of dance music and these paltry singles mean nothing to me or other people I know who listen to these genres...Lemmonn sweeper (talk) 20:28, 1 June 2009 (UTC)lemmonn_sweeper —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.157.48.7 (talk) 01:59, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

  • This article needs to include a section dealing with the massive expansion of the music industry vis-a-vis its' easy availability online. More people are listening to music now than at any other time in history due to the worldwide effect of the internet. Sstteevvee (talk) 21:48, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

This article is still terrible, where's the moderation? One of the worst Wikipedia articles I've ever seen. Radiohead is apparently Garage Rock according to this article. I'll try to fix it a little, but it still needs saving. RKFS (talk) 06:21, 26 September 2009 (UTC)


I can't enjoy this article, either. I can't enjoy 00's music much, either, so... Anyway, con you guys honestly call Nickelback Rock?!?! --Knick99 (talk) 22:07, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps it would be good to include a section about the explosion of genres and the difficulty at defining music. Also the music blogs that popped up and the increasing 'alternative' scene. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.229.181.171 (talk) 18:26, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

I CANNOT believe this is Wikipedia. Check these extracts: GRUP? Destiny's Child is considerated (CONSIDERATED?) the biggest R&B Act of the decade as well as the best-selling girl grup (GRUP?) of the decade with 50 million records worldwide.

Or how about:

Dance music had its ups and downs in the 2000s. Singles like Heaven (DJ Sammy song) in 2002 and Everytime We Touch (Cascada song) in 2006 became some of the biggest dance hits of the decade.

Christian music[edit]

I think Christian music should be discussed here. Many Christian rock and pop artists were popular in the decade, and some of them had entered the mainstream charts, such as Mute Math, Stacie Orrico, and Matt Kearney. We also have a lot of Christian and gospel influences, especially in country, hip-hop, R&B, and rock. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.29.213.199 (talk) 17:36, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Basshunter[edit]

I was flipping through this page and noticed that Basshunter is not up here. I could understand him not being as popular in the US but he's really popular over in Europe! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.111.126.207 (talk) 04:13, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Picture captions - "is referred"[edit]

There's an awful lot of weasel words in the picture captions - "is referred", "considered" and so on. Do we have sources? Or can we just simplify it to the facts? Mdwh (talk) 02:39, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Every single one of those captions is horribly written. Many of them simply feel like nods to the artist(s) by some overly eager fan.

Coldplay/Linkin Park Bias?[edit]

The British Music paragraph in the rock section is full of Coldplay bias, and seriously, in the rock section it lists Linkin Park as the best rock act of the decade? what a joke. this article is completely full of opinionated crap.--CombustionMan1 (talk) 00:52, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

JAZZ[edit]

There was no Jazz played in this decade? Sstteevvee (talk) 17:08, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Alicia Keys[edit]

Why is Alicia Keys mentioned in the adult contemporary field? Billboard named her the top R&B artist of the decade so she should be included in the R&B section. --93.146.213.186 (talk) 17:15, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Indie?[edit]

Someone needs to add this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.57.191.214 (talk) 02:49, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Pink[edit]

Where is Pink??? She is really important and there is NO mention of her!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.137.2.44 (talk) 23:02, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Wikipedia talk:Requested moves which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 22:15, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Only music Industry?[edit]

I have realized that this article is only about the music industry, the best selling artists. Besides, the Latin American section seems a joke, RBD may be the most succesful band to mexican teenagers, but is far of being important to the rest of Latin America. This article should be about musical movments or tends, and his most importants figures, no matter how good sellers they are but how important to the cultural development and musical inspiration. Just a few examples, in Chile is the New Chilean Cumbia or the Nu Folk, and the Cumbia Villera in Argentina. I would like to help to write the article but my english is not so good, it'd take too long. Thanks! --Tommy The Wise (talk) 18:53, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

No mention of "Kid A?"[edit]

Radiohead is mentioned briefly, but I'm really surprised that more focus isn't given to them. Kid A was hugely important in terms of music and In Rainbows created waves in the music industry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.227.159.150 (talk) 22:23, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

The "un-timeless" era of perishable/commodity music[edit]

Is there any analysis that little if anything from this decade that was played past its chart run? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.23.16.196 (talk) 16:03, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned references in 2000s in music[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of 2000s in music's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "cert":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 12:53, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
