    Top 100 of the past 20 years

    A radio station over in Australia is doing the top 100 of the past 20 years, where people could vote for their top 20 songs of the past 20 years.

    I don't really get the point of these charts. I mean, musical tastes are supposed to be subjective, right? The only outcome of this is just another reason for flaming and arguing. No musical lists could ever satisfy everyone but the one(s) who made them.

    I don't dislike the process of animation... I find it daunting, but only as much as I find everything daunting.

    So?
    -
    I honestly don't recognize most of these songs, I might recognize more in the bottom 50 but I'm not sure anymore, the only ones I recognized that I like are Sex On Fire, Feel Good Inc, Black Hole Sun, Around The World, Harder Better Stronger Faster, and Pumped Up Kicks.

    What about you, Jon? Can't be startin' a thread and then not letting us know your opinion on it.

    -I'll make my top 20 sometime later, even though I'm always making music lists in my head a top 20 is kinda big.

    Well since everyone can vote, it's getting the overall agreement of the best songs.

    TRH I've been putting in brackets 'I voted for this', for songs I voted for. But here is my list:

    Eminem - Lose Yourself
    Coldplay - Yellow
    Fatboy Slim - Praise You
    Goo Goo Dolls - Iris
    Greenday - Good Riddance
    No Doubt - Don't Speak
    Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Scar Tissue
    Oasis - Wonderwall
    Wu-Tang Clan - Protect Ya Neck
    Foo Fighters - Everlong
    Lenny Kravitz - Fly Away
    Powderfinger - My Happiness
    The Offspring - Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)
    Muse - Starlight
    Aerosmith - I don't wanna miss a thing
    The Cranberries - Zombie
    Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc.
    Matt Corby - Brother
    Beastie Boys - Sabotage
    Rage Against the Machine - Bulls on Parade

    It's just getting better, I'm in my element here.

    I will be updating in increments of every 10 songs. So I'll keep you all updated


    Edit:

    Bit disappointed with the top 10, really not what I expected. Oh well.

    Only the Division Bell album would've counted for Pink Floyd. Not the best choice to be honest.

    Ah damn.. I somehow didn't see the "past 20 years" thing. (High Hopes and Marooned are pretty decent though.)

    I read over a lot of information lately. Gotta stop that.
