Offering up a Lost 21st Century Classic from 2003. The White Stripes broke through on rock radio with this tune but not on Top 40 stations as it was moving up two notches to #81 on the 7/12/2003 Hot 100. The song would peak at #76. Here is "Seven Nation Army":
From this week in 2002, it's a cover of a #1 song by Madonna from 1986, and based on the title, I'm guessing the song was chosen due to the relationship the singer and her father had on their hit reality show from that year. The song debuted at #74 on the Hot 100 that week, which is where it peaked; on the Radio and Records chart, it peaked at #25. Here's "Papa Don't Preach" by Kelly Osbourne.
I'll also offer up a debut song from 2002 but from the 7/20/02 chart. The Hives are a Swedish rock group, and this was their first and only song to crack the Hot 100, debuting at #91 and making it to #86 during an 11-week run. This has a fantastic bass line, prominently featured from 2:08 - 2:35 in the video. Here are The Hives with "Hate To Say I Told You So":

Offering up a Lost 21st Century Classic from the 8/5/2006 Hot 100. The Raconteurs featured Jack White from the White Stripes. Their first hit was up 5 notches to #80 in its eleventh week on the chart (slow climber!), and it would eventually peak at #54. Here is "Steady As She Goes":
From this week in 2003, it's the only charted hit for a group that had three #1 songs on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart, including this one. At its peak position of #72 on the Hot 100 that week, here's "Just Because" by Jane's Addiction.
Offering up a tune which was moving up 5 notches to #73 in its 12th week on the 8/14/04 Hot 100. Some songs really took their time moving up the Hot 100 in the early and mid 2000s! Here is Modest Mouse with "Float On":
