It was a year in which pop culture begins to see radicle changes in music as a new wave of your singers like Britney Spears, Jenifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera released their debut albums which would have tremendous success in dominating radio and television. Nonetheless, true rock and roll was still alive and well, and saw debut albums by bands that were heavy and very original sounding.
