This August Bank Holiday Monday, Radio X will be counting down some of the most played songs of the 00s. Tune in for our epic celebration of the decade.

This August Bank Holiday Monday, we're celebrating the opening decade of the 21st century with The Radio X Top 100 of the 00s.

It was the start of a new millennium... and the decade that introduced Kings Of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs, Florence + The Machine and Arctic Monkeys.

Guitar music made a comeback with the likes of The Strokes, Razorlight and The Killers, nu-metal conquered the world and artists like Gorillaz and The Streets reinvented British music.

Whether you were listening to the confessional torch songs of Amy Winehouse or the epic anthems of Snow Patrol... feeling the slick grooves of OutKast, or charging onto the dance floor for The Fratellis or The Dandy Warhols... there'll be something for you.

And every song will transport you right back to where you were when the Millennium Bug failed to bite.
