Few years in the annals of music history are more significant than the year 2000. The turn of a new millennium brought with it a rapidly changing musical climate, and as the music industry inched closer to its current reliance on streaming, new genres of music became marketable. 20 years ago, you had nu-metal hitting its commercial peak, with the oncoming storm (hah!) of post-hardcore and metalcore not far behind, in particular. You also had post-metal upstarts like Isis start to emerge out of the underground, the humble beginnings of Lamb Of God, and many more.
Join us as we take a look at 25 albums you won’t believe are turning 20 this year. From Outkast to Radiohead, Marilyn Manson to Mudvayne, and Linkin Park to Limp Bizkit, the gang’s all here.
