Konstantine is easily one of my top-5 favourite songs ever. It's 9:35 of pure platinum.

I thought Electroshock Blues was okay, but I would probably consider them a lesser band than the Flaming Lips, especially if we're strictly talking about 2000-2005.

Same here. Although I only got into the album a few years ago, it's my favorite 00s rock album by far.

- Everything Glows, Soft Dogs and Scare Yourself

The offspring had two good albums, espacilly COO, but it is hard to call them rock.
They fit more into punk rock and skate punkish catagory.

I'd argue Riot Act was the best thing they released since "Vs.".

Vitalogy had highlights, No Code is one of the most poorly produced records I've ever heard, Yield was rubbish and Binaural was mediocre (IMO).

I'd throw a vote in for Queens of the Stone Age. "Rated R" was awesome and "Songs for the Deaf" is an all timer. I think "Songs for the Deaf" is one of the best "rock" records made in the last 20 years.

I'm a metal guy though so my knowledge is weak in this area.

Oh yeah Jimmy Eat World were a good band, I only heard some singles but they had their fans.

I'm sure the Foo Fighters are good, they just had that very generic sound that I associate with Nickleback though I'm not actually comparing them to Nickleback. So I forgot about them though I confess to not listening to half the bands not on that poll.

As for the other ones, half of them are hard rock and the others are ones that weren't well known so I wouldn't have included them but since there's no working poll up, suggest away.

Close enough. You make it sound like he suggested Beethoven or something. Rock/metal, pretty damn close.

Hardrock and metal are close, yes. Rock and metal are NOT close. There is a big diffrence there. Soad is in the Metal / Hardrock catagory. They are by far too heavy to be compared with the likes of Beatles, muse or even bon jovi. (Tho BJ have some "heavy" stuff)

I didn't include Foo Fighters because their music is on the whole, bland and uninspired. One By One and In Your Honor are good examples of that, there's 3 or 4 decent songs on each and outwith that it all sounds the same.

Forgot about Jimmy Eat World though, Bleed American and Futures is a good double for this timeframe.

Songs for the Deaf and Lullabies to Paralyze take the cake here for me.

I like Radiohead better, but not a huge fan of their albums over this time period.

Everybody seems to think Songs for the Deaf is their best album, but I always preferred Rated R.

Queens of the Stone Age take this pretty easily IMO, but Sonic Youth were releasing some pretty underrated albums around that time as well. The Mars Volta, too.
