>be me >eat at restaurant a few months ago >hears "Move Along" by All-American Rejects >Core Memory Unlocked >Gets taken back to elementary school days when song released and listened to it on the radio and online in the mid-to-late 2000s but totally forgot it existed until hearing it again in 2023 I know I'm writing about my experience with All-American Rejects specifically, but I want this thread to be about the 2000s punk/nu-metal/rock era. Think Avril Lavigne, Linkin Park, Evanescence, Three Days Grace, Three Doors Down, Fallout Boy, Daughtry, Green Day, etc. Bands/singers I also grew up listening to and adults, teens, and other kids enjoyed before the whole scene became mocked as a huge meme in the 2010s (particularly Linkin Park and Evanescence) and only in recent years is being embraced again by what I'm guessing those who grew up in the era with this as I did.

I heard NSync at a Lowe's a couple months ago, not sure if that counts.
Maladroit and The Green Album are great. Hybrid Theory was a good album too. I have the deluxe edition on CD actually.
I really only started getting into mainstream forms of music in the later years of the 2000s and avoided a lot of the modern radio rock like the plague. I don't feel like I missed out on much.
I went out eating during a small family reunion about a year or two ago at a restaurant by the water, and the band (a small local one) was playing a bunch of punk rock and nu-metal. It was really awesome, I loved it. Brought back tons of memories. I'm desperately trying to get my car fixed and finish school so I can just drive around the area and listen to local bands filled with old guys. They are truly the coolest.
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. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=emGri7i8Y2Y 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. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=juEAOWMG3kk https://yewtu.be/watch?v=IcUykmiBxIQ https://yewtu.be/watch?v=r3GWDy8AniE 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.
