Honestly, I think the 00's has been a pretty damn amazing time in music for people who actually know how to search for stuff. The radio is going to suck no matter what decade you live, but there is plenty out there for those who truly love seeking out new sounds.
The perks of this particular decade don't end there though. Production quality in studio is at a peak, there's a fair amount of creativity in various genres (young & old alike), and bands on the whole are making more of an effort to connect to their audiences than they have in the past thanks to the Internet and outgrowth of associated social media.
In truth, we are living in a rather industrious and amazing decade, and if you aren't finding something to like then it's probably an issue on your part rather than the actual content out there.
