... Joey Negro featuring Taka Boom

    Must Be The Music by Joey Negro featuring Taka Boom debuted at no 8 on 13th of February.

... New Order

    Crystal New Order make an almost unpublicised return to the UK Top 10 with Crystal which debuts at no 8 on August 19th, 2001. Formed from the remains of Joy Division after lead singer's Ian Curtis suicide, New Order's innovative blend of indie and dance made them a chart feature in the 1980s culminating in their 1990 England world cup song World In Motion. The core of Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook Gillian Gilbert and Stephen Morris broke apart in the nineties and although never officially disbanded there was little hope of a new record. Until now. Crystal heralds the new album Get Ready due in September...
    Lyrics: Crystal (UK:8)

... Nickelback

    How You Remind Me Canadian rock outfit Nickelback score their first major US hit with How You Remind Me which climbs to no 1 on December 22nd, 2001. Named from the change given for a regular coffee in Starbuck's, the lineup includes lead singer/guitarist Chad Kroeger, his brother Mike on bass, Ryan Peake on guitar and Ryan Vikedal on drums. Their debut album sold well at home but it is with their 1999 album The State that the band are beginning to receive international attention.
    Lyrics: How You Remind Me (Aus:2, US:1)

... No Doubt

    Hey Baby Hey Baby by No Doubt climbs to no 7 in Australia on January 20th, 2002. It's the first track of the group's third album Rock Steady. The band found making their latest album an easier task than the previous which had to follow the hugely successful Tragic Kingdom and the hit track Don't Speak. Lead singer Gwen Stefani featured on both the 2001 Us Grammy Best Male and Best Female single, respectively for Moby and Eve. Rock Steady features a number of producers including Prince, Dave Stewart and Ric Ocasek.
    Lyrics: Hella Good, Hey Baby

... 'N Sync

    Pop *NSync debut at no 9 in the UK on July 15th, 2001 with Pop. The song is taken from the forthcoming album Celebrity and is supposed to mark a harder edge to the boyband's music. The single has failed to hit the Top 10 in the US despite a lavish 2 million dollar video and can only match the peak of their last British Top 10, It's Gonna Be Me. Their biggest UK hit was Bye Bye Bye in March 2000. The new album credits the now de-permed Justin Timberlake as co-writer of many of the songs. Is a solo career next?
    Lyrics: Bye Bye Bye (UK:3), It's Gonna Be Me (UK:9), Pop (UK:9)

Set You Free ... N-Trance

    A slightly reworked version of Set You Free gives N-Trance a third chart run with the song. It debuts at no 4 in the UK on September 16th, 2001. The song previously reached no 39 in May 1994 and no 2 in January 1995. The production team scored two other top 10s in the nineties with Stayin' Alive and Do Ya Think I'm Sexy.
    Lyrics: Set You Free (UK:4)

... Nu Generation

    In Your Arms by Nu Generation debuted at no 8 in the UK on 23rd January, 2000.
