@ArtsOrbit: Artist whose sound epitomizes the 00s: Kanye. Damn it.
@heckadecimal: the 00's summed up in music? Michael Jackson. Fucking our youth with a plastic face; celebrated by many. Good riddance.
@killer_weed: depends, is there a Solid Gold/Kanye mashup out there?
@jeffshaw: If I have to pick one I'd go with Outkast.
@TamiSwenson: ...I keep thinking Kings of Leon although they may too recent.
@natepatrin: The Neptunes.
@jgrovum: I've seen some convincing arguments for Animal Collective, esp. considering growth from 2004-now.
@eriktmpls : I'd have to say Arcade Fire. There's both an underlying hopefulness to their music and an overt fear that it's all gone wrong.
@marnieGH: Arcade Fire is a nice choice. I'd add LCD Soundsystem.
@g_rote: Girl Talk. ironic, as it's pre '00's music mashed. but we live in an era of retweeted culture sans original content.
Arcade Fire - 3
Kanye West - 2
LCD Soundsystem - 2
OutKast - 2
