edited January 2010 in Debate and/or Discourse
Is there a song that will define this decade and/or is there a song from these ten years that will be associated with this decade?

Oops!... I Did It Again by Ms. Spears.

What is your song that defines a decade D&D?

    Pretty sure that song was from 1998-1999, not anywhere in the 2000s.
    God I wish I could pick Electioneering by Radiohead. It pretty much defines the politics of today.

    If anything, I'd pick that.

    Or hell, Optomistic. Despite the fact that we've had a depressing decade, the song speaks about our resiliance and unwillingness to see that our attempts are not good enough.

    Or "These Colours Don't Run". But that's primarily about the war part of the decade, really. Of which there has been quite a lot.

    Lyrics on the youtube description. Again pre-2000 but ehh.

    Oh my first proper one!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO7VP34n2Ps

    Lyrics:
    Funeral planet, dead black asteroid
    Mausoleum, this world is a tomb
    Human zombies, staring blank faces
    No reason to live, dead in the womb
    Death shroud existence, slave for a pittance
    Condemned to die before I could breathe
    Millions are screaming, the dead are still living
    This Earth has died yet no one has seen

    Funeralopolis

    I don't care, this world means nothing
    Life has no meaning, my feelings are numb
    Faceless masses filed like gravestones
    Sacrificed for the glory of one
    Funerary cities, flesh press factories
    Corporate maggots feed on the carrion
    Funeralopolis, claymore shellpocalypse
    Black clouds form to block out the sun

    Funeral planet, dead black asteroid
    Mausoleum, this world is a tomb
    Human zombies, staring blank faces
    No reason to live, dead in the womb
    Funeralopolis
    Planet of the dead
    Funeralopolis
    Planet of the dead

    Death shroud existence, slave for a pittance
    Condemned to die before I could breathe
    Millions are screaming, the dead are still living
    This Earth has died yet no one has seen
    Funeralopolis
    Planet of the dead
    Funeralopolis
    Planet of the dead

    Funeralopolis
    Funeralopolis

    Nuclear warheads ready to strike
    This world is so fucked, let's end it tonight
    Nuclear warheads ready to strike
    This world is so fucked, let's end it tonight
    Nuclear warheads ready to strike
    This world is so fucked, let's end it tonight
    Nuclear warheads ready to strike
    This world is so fucked, let's end it tonight
    Nuclear warheads ready to strike
    This world is so fucked, let's end it tonight
    Nuclear warheads ready to strike
    This world is so fucked, let's end it tonight
    Nuclear warheads ready to strike

    Doesn't hurt that it's also a fantastic song with a Ramones vibe to it, and it never gets preachy or overstays its welcome like some more recent Green Day.

    "These are my twisted words," by Radiohead.

    I don't even know what the lyrics say. It's the way the song sounds. It's like walking through a doorway into another world.

    I think the idiocy of this decade is exaggerated—politics has always been stupid. In many ways we've become more literate, more politically aware, and more tolerant, especially young people. What's notable about this decade, to me, is that it feels like we have crossed some kind of threshold. The world today is a completely different place than the world in 2000, on several levels. For the first time in history more humans live in cities than in rural areas. Asymmetrical warfare has totally replaced regular warfare, and the CIA is fighting a proxy war in Pakistan with hundreds of remote-controlled robots. We all walk around with iPod headphones, or smartphones. The Internet has fundamentally changed the way our lives work, communication, the economy, entertainment—everything is different. Everything is filtered through technology.

    And this technology has reached a point that, in many ways, it is indistinguishable from "magic." The iPhone just works. Wifi and 3G surround us like an aetheric aura, an invisible sea of information. AI has taken root in unexpected but profound ways, not just autonomous robots but the algorithms on search engines.

    Looking back 10 years I can't shake the feeling that we've walked through some mirror-filled corridor into this bizarre world of techno-magic, and the Radiohead song captures the mystery and weirdness of this perfectly.

    I have to agree that it was a pretty fantastic album and much more punk rock than they should have been able to get away with. There most recent stuff...not so much.

    In less than 10 years there will be a Tommy-esque rock opera based on that album. The new one is just balls.

    I've never understood the Dylan love. At least is his Newport performance of Like a Rolling Stone, he was sharp, whiny, and screeching, most likely due to alcohol. It also had no discernible rhythm.

    Of course, a lot of the music of the decade featured sharp vocals and no sense of rhythm. I blame the Beatles.
