While the 2000s came and went, the best artists and bands of the period still remain. Well, their music does at the least. From the new millennium to 2009, we heard some truly great music from a broad range of bands and recording artists. Of course, you'll see not all of these musicians got started in the 2000s, but they certainly recorded popular hits throughout this time.
