NPR Music highlights some of the most significant musical moments of the '00s in culture, business and technology using our archival news coverage. Ten years is a lot to survey (you could listen to Chinese Democracy 73,888 times in ten years). For every event featured below, there are hundreds more we couldn't fit in. Share your thoughts on the most important music moments this decade in the comments below. We'll be discussing them in our Decade In Music series on the NPR Music Monitor Mix blog.
