Pink Floyd - The Wall and Led Zepplin IV are pretty good, surprised no one mentioned those

Man, I don't know, they don't make metal like they used to, but there are some decent mainstream albums in this decade, just to name a few:

Down - Down II: A Bustle in your Hedgerow
Children of Bodom - Follow the Reaper, Hate Crew Deathroll
Exodus - Tempo of the Damned, Shovel Headed Kill Machine
Kreator - Enemy of God
Anthrax - We've Come For You All
Megadeth - The System Has Failed
Lamb of God - As The Palaces Burn

I'm pretty apathetic about new music. Underground death metal is good, but you rarely hear anything revolutionary; it's just good music to break up the monotony of strictly listening to classic thrash/death metal. I'm pretty slow when it comes to hearing about new metal albums out there.

As far as general rock goes, they don't make 'em like they used to there too. By that, I mean good stuff: Rage Against the Machine, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, etc. I stopped listening to mainstream rock radio some 8 or 9 years ago because even rock music was being watered down greatly to either emo or the kind of indie sounding rock.

Radiohead - Kid A and Hail To The Thief
Tool - Lateralus
Turbonegro - Apocalypse Dudes and Ass Cobra
The Dandy Warhols - Odditorium Or Warlord Of Mars
The White Stripes - White Blood Cells and Elephant
The Killers - Everything they've done so far
Jane's Addiction - Strays(not their best work but I liked it)
Beck - Guero and Information(Midnight Vultures came out in '99...dang)
The Pixies - Pixies(Songs recorded in 1987 but the album was released in '02)
Reverend Horton Heat - Spend A Night In The Box
Nashville Pussy - High As Hell and Say Something Nasty and Get Some!
US Bombs - Covert Action and We Are The Problem

I'm sure I could think of more But there's a few I've bought this decade, I'm pretty sure all of them were released 2000 or later except maybe Turbonegro - Apocalypse Dudes which may have been '99...pretty sure it was released in the states in 2000 though. :-?

It's better than Load and Reload, but it wasn't anything noteworthy either. It's just like nu metal that discovered some of its thrash roots. Metallica is perhaps the most polarizing metal band that ever existed in my opinion.
