Rock

Due to hip hop's popularity rock experienced a diminished presence on mainstream music charts, especially by the beginning of the following decade, though the genre still sells well. Modern rock as a radio format experienced a sharp decline, with high-profile cornerstone stations like WLIR-FM, K-Rock in New York City and WBCN in Boston flipping to other formats. New York City, once the leading market for the format, has only one modern rock station, 101.9 WRXP-FM.

Post-grunge

Post-Grunge continued to be popular at the dawn of the millennium. Popular artists include Creed, Nickelback, Matchbox 20, Audioslave, Foo Fighters, Muse, Buckcherry, Our Lady Peace, Lifehouse, Switchfoot, Silverchair, Staind, Puddle of Mudd, Shinedown, Seether, and Daughtry. These bands took post-grunge into the 21st century with considerable commercial success, at times abandoning the angst and anger of the original movement for more conventional anthems, narratives and romantic songs. At the start of the 2010s the genre is still active, including new acts Shinedown and Seether.

Hard rock, alternative metal and heavy metal

During the early 2000s, a new wave of metal began with interest in the newly emerging genre nu metal and genres of a similar style such as rap metal and the later mainstream success rap rock. The popularity of nu metal music carried over from the late 1990s, where it was introduced by early work from bands such as Korn, Deftones, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot and Coal Chamber, into the early 2000s with the similar genre, rap rock, bringing in a wave of monster-hit artists such as System of a Down, Evanescence, Staind, Papa Roach, and Disturbed. The success of Korn's third studio album, Follow The Leader, brought nu metal to the mainstream. Linkin Park's debut album Hybrid Theory, released in 2000, sold over 24 million copies worldwide. The band's next album Meteora is the most successful album on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. Chris Cornell teamed up with members of Rage Against the Machine to form Audioslave, who released their eponymous debut album in 2002. However, by 2002 and 2003, there were signs that nu metal's mainstream popularity was weakening. Crazy Town's second album Darkhorse, Korn's long awaited fifth album Untouchables, Limp Bizkit's fourth album Results May Vary, Linkin Park's second album Meteora, Papa Roach's second album Lovehatetragedy, P.O.D.'s third major-label album Payable on Death and Static-X's third album Shadow Zone did not sell as well as their previous releases, mainly because those groups had changed their sound, while nu metal bands were played more infrequently on rock radio stations and MTV began focusing on pop punk and emo bands such as Good Charlotte and Fall Out Boy, respectively. Since then, many bands have changed to a more conventional music sound, such as hard rock(Papa Roach), post-grunge(Staind), heavy metal(Slipknot, Disturbed, Static-X), alternative rock(Linkin Park, Adema), or alternative metal(Korn, Mudvayne, Deftones, Godsmack, System of a Down) in order to maintain their popularity and their fanbases. A primary example of this is Linkin Park's 2007 album Minutes to Midnight which showcases a softer alternative rock sound as compared to their earlier, more aggressive material.

AC/DC released Stiff Upper Lip in 2000 and Black Ice in 2008, their first album in eight years. Guns N' Roses released the long-awaited Chinese Democracy in 2008 after over a decade of work by Axl Rose. Metallica released two albums in the 2000s, St. Anger in 2003 and Death Magnetic in 2008. Aerosmith released the platinum-selling Just Push Play in 2001 followed by the blues-infused Honkin' on Bobo in 2004; the band also toured every year of the decade except 2008. Bon Jovi released five albums during the decade: Crush (2000), Bounce (2002), Have a Nice Day (2005), Lost Highway (2007), and The Circle (2009). Crush fared best, going double platinum, and spawning the hit "It's My Life", while Have a Nice Day and Lost Highway also launched Top 40 singles, went platinum, and saw the band mix hard rock with country. Bon Jovi's Lost Highway Tour was the highest-grossing tour of 2008.

By 2004, the uprising genre metalcore dominated with bands such as Killswitch Engage, Underoath, Bullet for My Valentine, and most successfully Avenged Sevenfold, all releasing successful albums. The rise of metalcore led to increased popularity and exposure of nearly every other sub-genre of heavy metal including death metal, black metal, and thrash. Innovations in the 2000s included the advent of technical death metal, folk metal, and deathcore.

Pop punk

A second wave of pop punk bands emerged in the 2000s such as Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, and Sum 41, who made use of humour in their videos and had a more radio-friendly tone to their music, while retaining the speed, some of the attitude and even the look of 1970s punk.[19] More recent pop-punk bands, including Simple Plan, The All-American Rejects and Fall Out Boy, have a sound that has been described as closer to late 1970s and early 1980s hardcore, with similarities to the band Cheap Trick, while still achieving considerable commercial success.

In addition, some of the most successful pop-punk bands in the 1990s, such as Green Day, Weezer, Blink-182 and The Offspring, also continued their success during the 2000s. Also Avril Lavigne became popular in the teen pop-rock scene thanks to her pop-punk based sound, making her the biggest solo act in this genre.

Emo

Emo broke into mainstream culture in the early 2000s with the platinum-selling success of Jimmy Eat World's Bleed American (2001) and Dashboard Confessional's The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most (2003). The new emo had a far greater appeal amongst adolescents than its earlier incarnations. At the same time, use of the term "emo" expanded beyond the music world, becoming associated with fashion, hairstyle, and other aesthetic attributes of culture.

In recent years the term emo has been applied by critics and journalists to a variety of artists, including multi-platinum acts such as Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance and disparate groups such as Paramore and Panic! at the Disco, even when they protest the label.

Emo never replaced post grunge, which never quite faded away, and has been described as a musical culture clash, blurring the distinction between the rock of the 1990s and 2000s.

Alternative rock and Indie rock

Garage rock, post-punk and new wave revival

In the early 2000s, a new group of bands emerged into the mainstream which drew primary inspiration from post-punk and new wave and were variously characterised as part of a garage rock, post-punk or new wave revival. Because the bands came from across the globe, cited diverse influences (from traditional blues, through new wave to grunge), and adopted differing styles of dress, their unity as a genre has been disputed. There had been attempts to revive garage rock and elements of punk in the 1980s and 1990s and by 2000 scenes had grown up in several countries. The Detroit rock scene included The Von Bondies, Electric Six, The Dirtbombs and The Detroit Cobras and that of New York which included Radio 4, Bloc Party, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Rapture. Social networking sites such as MySpace and Purevolume enabled amateur artist to promote their music, and thanks to the internet, many underground unsigned artists become discovered and listen to by alternative communities. The revival hit a peak in 2003-4. Franz Ferdinand from Scotland, also became popular with their debut album in 2004. Though drawing on an indie sound, none of the groups were derivative in a way that could be described as retro. In 2004 The Killers's released their successful debut album Hot Fuss, while the Bravery became popular the following year.

Three of the most successful bands from these scenes were The Strokes, who emerged from the New York club scene with their début album Is This It (2001), The White Stripes, from Detroit, with their third album White Blood Cells (2001), and Interpol from New York, with their debut album Turn On the Bright Lights. They were christened by the media as the "The" bands, and dubbed "The saviours of rock 'n' roll", because of their connections with the indie rock underground, leading to accusations of hype. Other popular bands of the "The" era were, The Hives, The Vines, The Darkness as well as Jet, in which their 2003 smash-hit "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" catupulted to the top of the charts and was frequently used in commercial ads primarily for music (such as for Apple's iPods) Canadian punk band, Sum 41 poked fun at the start of "The" band craze in their music video for "Stll Waiting" in 2003 off the album "Does This Look Infected" (2002). Will Sasso makes a cameo in the video, coining them as "The Sums". Just a few years after helping to rejuvenate the New York rock scene, many of the bands such as the Strokes and Yeah Yeah Yeahs among them proved to be mainstream disappointments.

Indie rock

During the mid 2000s, bands such as Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie and Arcade Fire released Indie rock albums that broke into the mainstream and gave Indie rock recognition. The late 2000s also saw more Indie Rock bands such as MGMT, Grizzly Bear, Arcade Fire, The Shins and Vampire Weekend gain popularity around the world, including the United States, thanks to the rise of independent internet music blogs. The rising popularity of Internet radio has led to high album sales, despite little or no radio play for Indie rock bands. By the end of the decade several of these bands release albums that top the Billboard Top 200. This event has been viewed as heralding a new era for rock in the wake of an era of pop dominance by the likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber.
