Looking back at the year 2001 can be tough for a lot of people because of what happened on the eleventh day of September with the terrorist attacks on the United States. The world changed that year. The music world would begin to respond to the attacks a few months later in the year 2002. It was too early in 2001 to respond as the nation was in deep shock and mourning.

In the rock and roll world, 2001 saw the release of the debut album by John Mayer as well as the major label debuts by Andrew W.K. Ben Folds, Puddle of Mudd, Michelle Branch, and Hoobastank.  Perhaps, what many older fans will take from the year 2001 was the release of Elton John’s Songs From The West Coast which was clearly the best album he had recorded in twenty years.
