I'm afraid the days when one band (read: The Beatles) can tilt the entire axis of popular music are over. It can't be done single-handedly anymore due to fragmentation and so many musical tastes sprawled out in so many different directions. A wave in one pool is a ripple in a pool nearby... and that's how change comes about. When N.W.A. came on the scene back in '88, most people like me had no idea they were breaking ground. I was too busy listening to GnR, Def Leppard and Whitesnake to barely notice. Just like most hip hop technicians probably had tunnel vision when it came to Nirvana's "Nevermind" as a landmark disc. Then Garth Brooks debuts at no. 1 and those fly MC's are scratching their heads AND their turntables, asking: Garth WHO???

Change usually comes within the first two years of the new decade. I'm guessing there will earth-shattering changes in all 4 corners of pop music (rock, pop, country, hip-hop) within 12 months' time. I don't believe what is currently on the radio reflects what will be looked back upon as "the sound of the 2000's". Look back 10 years ago on the charts: Skid Row, Warrant, Mr. Big, Extreme. Hardly the 90's icons...try Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.
