The Two Sheds Mix Tape #11: 2001 - The Year I Turned 30

The 11th part of my Mix Tape series sees us getting a bit more modern, if you can call the year 2001 modern that is.

2001 was the year I celebrated my 30th birthday, and it was also the year that I began to take an active interest in music again. I’d spent the latter part of the 1990’s not really paying attention to what was going on in the UK charts, and I only really listened to artists who’d been around the block a while. New music just didn’t interest me that much.

Then something called NuMetal crept up on me. Artists such as Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach and Slipknot began to appear on my horizon, some of them helped by appearances on WWE’s television shows, and some of them helped by almost constant appearances on Kerrang’s TV channel.

But this Mix Tape also delves into other parts of the musical world as well. Veterans such as U2, Aerosmith and Bon Jovi are here as well, and they’re joined by a few hip hoppers and rappers such as Dr. Dre, Wyclef Jean and 2 Pac, with the likes of Dido, the Corrs and Natalie Imbruglia adding a pop feel to the collection, with all the songs here having made the UK charts in 2001.
