This August Bank Holiday Monday, we celebrated all things 2000s with The Radio X Top 100 of the 00s.
It was an era that bought us into a new millennium and bore the likes of Kings Of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs, Florence + The Machine and Arctic Monkeys.
Whether you were into guitar bands like The Strokes, loved Amy Winehouse’s brand of confessional R&B, listened to the infectious hip-hop of Outkast or lived your best nu-metal life through Linkin Park, the 00s had something for everyone.
So on August Bank Holiday Monday, we looked back at one of the most epic and eclectic decades in music by revealing Radio X’s most played songs from the 00s- with stats provided by PPL.
Every song in our Top 100 Of The 00s was released between the start of 2000 and the end of 2009 and is based on UK radio play in the 21st century. Every song will have had at least one play on Radio X in the last 12 months.

Keane – Somewhere Only We Know
Released on 16 February 2004 from Keane’s Hopes and Fears album, the track peaked at No.3 of the UK singles chart. Though Tom Chaplin and co have clarified that the song isn’t about a specific geographical place, it certainly has a place in fans’ hearts all over the globe.
Coldplay – Clocks
The 2002 track, which comes from the band’s A Rush Of Blood To The Head album almost never got released because the band didn’t want to be a single. Luckily the label talked them round.
U2 – Beautiful Day
The hit, which was taken from U2’s All That You Can’t Leave Behind album, was a huge hit when it was released in 2000. It’s endured with fans ever since, appearing on every U2 setlist since it was debuted live in 2001.
Stereophonics – Have A Nice Day
Released in June 2001 from the Welsh band’s Just Enough Education to Perform album, the lyrics to Have A Nice Day were inspired by a cab journey Stereophonics took while they were on tour in San Francisco.
Keane – Everybody’s Changing
This song from Keane’s Hopes and Fears album was released twice in the UK. The first time around it made it to 122 and a year later it hit No.4 on the singles charts.
Coldplay – Viva La Vida

Coldplay’s Viva La Vida single, which means Long Live Life in Spanish, was written by all four members of the band and is considered by Chris Martin as one of their best ever songs.
The Killers – Human
The Killers’ 2008 Human single, which was taken from their Day & Age album, was the third song from Brandon Flowers and co to enter the Top 5 of the UK singles chart.
Kings Of Leon – Use Somebody
The 2008 which features on the band’s Only By The Night album is one of the band’s most popular hits. Perhaps only second to this one…
Kings Of Leon – Sex On Fire
KOL’s 2008 song, which also comes from their Only By The Night album, gave the band their first ever UK No.1 single and has remained one of their most famous songs. It’s thought the track was written about lead singer Caleb Followill’s then girlfriend and now wife Lily Aldridge. It started out as a joke, but there’s nothing funny about its success.
Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars
The 2006 single, which went stratospheric when it was featured on US TV show Grey’s Anatomy, reached platinum in 11 different countries. Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody referred to it as: “the purest love song that I’ve ever written”.
