Artists of the Decade

This past weekend I unveiled my list for the "100 Greatest Albums of the Decade," granted I got a ton of hate mail and some praise for my list, creating it and going back to those albums was worth it. In tandem with that list, I have compiled my list for the 10 Artists of the Decade. Now, before everyone gets upset and goes after me again, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! These artists were picked because their careers as individuals were born between 2000 and 2009, so for instance, Radiohead, who I love and respect was out of the running because they formed in 1992. However, someone like Beyonce and Justin Timberlake who came from other groups and established themselves as solo artists within the last decade, and very good ones at that, can rank. So with that said, here is my list for the Artists of the Decade...

1) Coldplay
2) Kanye West
3) Beyonce
4) The Strokes
5) Justin Timberlake
6) Jack White
7) Arcade Fire
8) Pharell Williams
9) Amy Winehouse
10) Bright Eyes
