Let me just say that if it was a matter of judging Top 40 radio, this past decade has had by far the shittiest music that has ever been made. I'm not having a pop/hip-hop bias, because occasionally I enjoy a nice catchy pop tune, and some cool rap beats, but as far as mainstream goes, everything has become so horrendous that there's little to be considered even a "guilty pleasure". The only rock genre that gets constant mainstream airplay was emo pop-punk rock, and that was plain pathetic
Now that being said, it seems like rock music, in particular the alternative / indie / post punk revival / new progressive has found a whole different nishe to reach an audience, and the best part is that they are not willing to bow down to any of the mainstream outlets including MTV itself. So for that, I have to say that these rock bands truly made the past decade even better than the 90s as far as music goes ( or at least way much better than the late 90s, which truly sucked musically ).
