I've been thinking about 2000s edge rock for a little while now. I grew up during the era where it was omnipresent, especially on video game soundtracks for sports games. It isn't really that complex, but there's a kind of bite to it that you don't really get from popular music that game after, either due to it being written by Negroes on ganja or bipolar zoomers on their smartphones.
Sum 41 was a very popular band in Canada in that era but I'm not sure if they were known in the US. I must have heard this song and its chorus a few hundred times when I was younger, and the music video is a beautiful time capsule of the late 90s and early 00s. A bunch of "punk" misfits who are kind of dweeby and out of shape get to stick it to the jocks (vaguely homosexual, of course) in a sports competition, whereby they win the adoration of the crowd and the judges (take that, teacher!) and celebrate how weird they are. Cheating and being stupid are par for the course, naturally.
I also really like how clear and crisp all the imaging is, since most film was still being shot on film stock and done with practical effects. CGI doesn't have the same impact.
Another Canadian act who were decently popular in the 80s and 90s but didn't have the same staying power was Headstones, who really captured the hard-hitting attitude of the 90s and 00s before they broke up for about ten years, then then got back together. If you know them for anything it'd be Cemetery, the third video I linked, but I think some of their songs from The Oracle of Hi-Fi hold up really well too. I was able to see them at a live show last year and they're still really good; it's not too often that a bunch of dudes in their 50s can still headbang.
Trivia: the lead singer, Hugh Dillon, is the voice actor for Nick in Left 4 Dead 2.
