Withering Aughts

I had 24 hours notice to do this and about 4-5 actual hours to do it, but I'm pretty happy with it. Basically, it starts off with a bang, with the first 9 tracks being more rock-oriented, and then it gets a lot more mellow - that was just the flow I ended up being happy with. It's pretty mainstream, but whatever. These are just the tracks that I couldn't bare to cut - all that I can't leave behind, so to speak. A couple notes: 1. Sean Lennon's track is probably the only one you guys haven't heard a lot before; if I have one hope for this list, it's that Sean's track persuades you guys to give his album Friendly Fire a try. 2. I think Jane's Addiction's Just Because is one of the more underrated rock songs of the decade. I could comment on all of my picks, but you don't want to read, you want to listen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Wow, 9th is higher than I thought I'd finish. I was prepping myself for a finish in dead last. I wonder who ranked me #1?

Also, I'm shocked bono_212's list was so low, I had that as my #1.

I think it's fair to say that is the case, as you can now see from the others that have followed.

We've certainly got varied opinions around here when more than one playlist has both a first AND last ranking.

I screwed up a few of the lowest placed rankings. Obviously, 13th is the lowest, so GAF, Screw, and Ax couldn't have had a 14th. And Ashley's lowest ranking was a 12th place.
