    I missed the White Stripes on there. They, plus TMBG and Coldplay, and a handful of others, that's all I recognize.

    Ah, and of course, System of a Down and Weezer.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Well believe it or not guys but there are more than 15 albums released every year. I know commercial music television and radio would like you to think other wise, but yeah, some of those 'other' records are actually quite good.

    The White Stripes and Clem Snide?

    Please.

    I'd rather listen to my garbage disposal than either of those two.

    Not crap, sure, but the new album is a disappointment. And I'm a big Stripes fan.

    I can't get behind putting MIA #1. The sound of her voice drives me insane. The Decemberists should be ahead of that.

    And I would have Common's Be somewhere in there, especially over New Order, which I found disappointingly boring. They just aren't bringing it like they used to.

    I think Be was overhyped, myself. Three good tracks and a lot of filler, IMO.
