    Every band has a "Magical Mystery Tour" or a "Rattle and Hum" in its catalog.

    Good choice. Not quite the mass appeal of some of the bands mentioned, but an excellent example of a modern hard rock band. Smart lyrics, stunning musicianship, and fantastic songs.

    And they are from my neighborhood!

    As to the band of the aughts, it's a shame that the music industry has gotten so AmericanIdoledhiphopped so that we can't even figure out the top contenders. I'm still listening to stuff I listened to 20 years ago with a few new additons once in awhile. I have no idea who the band of the aughts is, but I do know we need something/someone to jumpstart rock and roll.

It was fresh and exciting, something rock and roll wasn't, at least to me.
    I was with you there until the techno part. But then my techno experience is based upon living in Germany in the 80s.

    I think Tool merits discussion, though I much prefer A Perfect Circle. Korn? Meh. I'd rather talk Staind.

    If we expand the discussion beyond rock, how about Outkast? Speakerboxx/The Love Below was great. The Love Below is one of my favorite albums of all time and I don't even like hip hop.

    Outkast crossed my mind, but it's been five years since they put out a new record. They very well might have held the title during the first half of this decade.

    Tool, while not my cup of tea, definitely belongs in the discussion. From what I understand, can't say for sure because I don't their stuff that well, Korn been slumping with its past few releases, no?

    Another band that probably deserves a mention, but likely is past its heights, is Weezer. I'm sure that'll make a few heads explode. Weezer seems to have that effect on some people.

    I know what you mean, and I couldn't agree more. I guess thats not what I was trying to say.. I just see a lot of potential.. music is exciting again IMO, if you stick your nose in a crate and dig a little bit. I honestly couldn't feel I felt that way in long time. But I'm not trying to say there is def. a world's greatest rock band at the moment. I'd agree, that if there is one.. its still one of the legends from yesteryear. Floyd, Zep, the Stones.. The Beatles are back at the forefront with their "Love" exposure, if they even ever left.

    I'd agree. The newer stuff is more outwardly pop than the "Is it pop, ironic, or both?" Cuomo was all about early on. Still good music. Better than the vast majority of new music out today.

    Tool rocks, but I don't think they are nearly mainstream enough. You can't even get their songs on iTunes...

    Music these days is like going to the grocery store for Cheerios.

    It used to be just plain Cheerios.

    Now, you go look at the cereal aisle and there is honey nut, berry burst, yogurt burst, multigrain, fruity, frosty, little o, big o, breakfast bars with cheerios, cheerio classic, cheerios out the wazoo, blah blah blah, ad infinitum....

    With so many options, your brain tharns over from all the choices.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I agree on A Perfect Circle, just don't know if that project has quite the same reach as tool at this point.

    My thoughts on korn, while perhaps they don't quite have the requisite chops, were that they've been pretty influential (and I believe contemporary influence is an essential element). They started the Family Values Tour and have a sort of cross-genre reach that makes them somewhat difficult to pin down. I think M2 is right, though, that too much of their success is 'too' '90s for them to be highly considered as a "Band of the aughts". As bad as limp biskit is, korn pretty much brought them the attention they needed to break out. I think it could, further, be said that lb then provided a similar service to the aforementioned staind. So, that's more where I was coming from on korn. More about their aggregate influence on music than anything else really.
