When you ask "Has the music industry gone downhill during the 2000's", I'm not exactly clear on what you're referring to. There has been a decline in the sales of music, for sure. But that is more due to the fact that there is rampant online piracy, and it's affected not only music, but also moves, games, and TV. I don't think it's at all fair to say that the decline in the sales of music industry-wide is due to a declining quality of music. There are more bands than ever, and thousands of artists regularly sell out arenas, so I think the money has just shifted from sales of CDs into ticket sales.
