    As the first decade of the 21st century comes to a close, it's time to start thinking about what this decade had to offer us. Soon every publication, blogger, website, etc. will be compiling massive lists attempting to qualify and rank the contributions made to popular culture over the last ten years.

    Since we like lists so much here in the Culture forum, let's try our own. Films, filmmakers, music, musicians, books, authors, scientific discoveries, moments in history, on and on and on and on.

    Anyone want to start?

    for moments in history, I think we'll have to mention the obvious ones (9/11, the war on terror, and the economic crisis).

    agreed, especially with the first black president, thats a big one.

    would you say the concern over global warming and the alternative fuels issue should be on the list?

    I want to start with pedantry and wait until late 2010 for this thread.

    List of NEW bands between 2000-2010 that will still be listened to or receive frequent airplay in the next decade. (Personally, i think we just went through another one hit wonder 80's type decade)

    Now, use your judgement here and try to be objective. Don't just pick your current fav band.

    M83 comes to mind, but these things are hard to predict. I think most of the indie rock bands will be forgotten soon.
