Gorillaz "Demon Days" (2005)

The Gorillaz are a great example of post millenial pop music.  What exactly do you call this?  It is as indebted to hip hop as it is to any traditional form of rock.  Yet it is really neither.  Fascinating stuff, really.

Demon Days is darker than the debut album, and IMHO suffers for it.  However, it certainly does speak to that dystopian vibe that was so common after 9/11.
