The years 2000-2009 have an identity problem. In addition to having a lot of unpleasant history, nobody can figure out what to call the decade. The Zeros? The Naughts?
Variety music likes to group music by the decades – the most popular being “80s, 90s and Today”. Well, the 90s are 15 years old, and music from 2001 isn’t exactly “today”. Music from the 10s doesn’t exactly sound very catchy either.
