In the 2000s the genre saw something of a resurgence with the indie crowd. In 2001 a band called Music/MyVitriol released Finelines which is given credit with starting the shoegaze movement of the 2000s called Nu Gaze (Coined by Som Wardner himself from My Vitriol). Bands such as Music/SilversunPickups, Asobi Seksu, Blonde Redhead, and The Big Pink were bands that followed this new movement. There were also DarkerAndEdgier bands that used the shoegazing sound to oppress or disquiet rather than uplift, like Music/SingaporeSling (the first band to make a career out of this "darker" sound), Music/APlaceToBuryStrangers, The Horrors, Music/{{Jesu}}, ''Have a Nice Life,'' and The Angelic Process. There are also a few metal bands that have adopted some elements of shoegaze as well (such as Alcest, Deafheaven, {{Jesu}} again, arguably Nachtmystium), most of them usually being placed as metalgaze or or just post-metal. Then there are bands such as Music/{{M83}} and ''A Sunny Day in Glasgow'' who have aimed towards more electronic experimentation with shoegaze. Yeah, it's been incorporated into almost everything...

The genre's first release was the EP ''You Made Me Realise'' by the Anglo-Irish band Music/MyBloodyValentine in 1988. They are also responsible for the most critically acclaimed and well-regarded shoegazing album, ''Music/{{Loveless}}'' (1991), which seen as the ''essential'' shoegazing album for [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome damn good reason]]. Other great bands in the genre include: Music/{{Ride}}, Music/{{Lush}}, Chapterhouse, Music/{{Slowdive}}, Moose and Music/TheVerve, the latter being a fusion of shoegazing, space rock and psychedelic rock. The only problem with these bands is that they suffer from a pretty bad case of OvershadowedByAwesome thanks to the pervasive presence and legendary reputation of the aforementioned My Bloody Valentine.[[note]]You might say "But I know The Verve!", but the thing is, they never completely fit in with the scene and had a bit of a GenreShift on the way to success.[[/note]]
