QUIZ: Rock and alternative albums of the early 2000s

Matt Sayward

Heady days

The early 2000s were a wild time for guitar music.

Pop-punk bands selling out arena shows every week. Afternoons and evenings on MySpace and PureVolume.

Limp Bizkit and Korn causing surge sales of comically-oversized JNCO jeans at TK Maxx.

Dropping the baggy jeans off at the charity shop and heading off in search of black drainpipes as emo took hold of the collective alternative consciousness.

Green Day albums going platinum seven times over.

Even the novelty acts like Electric Six and Tenacious D were finding mainstream success.

But how well do you remember the albums of the day?
