"Hey Ya" and "B.O.B." should've both been in the top three, at least. And that's to say nothing of "I Like The Way You Move," which should've dented the top 20 EASILY. Can't believe that I forgot about the "Ignition" remix, though. I saw that and was like, "Oh, shit...duh!"

The only OutKast track I like better than Hey Ya! is Roses.

Fucking great list, PFork. Nicely done.

I still have a boner from seeing "Biology" garner a spot on there.

B.O.B. a well deserved number 1 , Idioteque and Tunnels are both well deserved top 10 placings. I think most of the top 20 and heck most of this list are overrated but it did get better as it went on

Weird that "Ignition" made it but "Piss on You" got the shaft.

I think I'm probably the only one here who would have an issue with the Idioteque pick. The lack of How To Disappear Completely is disturbing. Should have replaced Everything In Its Right Place, if nothing else. Don't even get me started on Wake Up's absence.

B.O.B. kicks ass though. Well deserved #1. And Maps! One More Time! Ignition! I thought the list turned out very well.

Well. Looks like I'm gonna be a dissenter.

I don't understand the Ignition love. What's so special about it? I thought R Kelly was a laughingstock around here anyway?

I also don't get the B.O.B. love. Doesn't do anything for me(and I only just listened to it for the first time about twenty minutes ago after seeing it atop this list - was never an outkast fan). I think Hey Ya is much better, and I've only come around on that recently(I didn't like it at all when it was everywhere in 2004). To say that B.O.B. is the best song of the decade is absolutely, unequivocally insane, imo.

On the subject of hip-hop, how does The Marshall Mathers LP, absolutely one of the hugest hip hop records of the decade, get nothing on this list? The Real Slim Shady? The Way I Am? Stan? I take any of those three over B.O.B. any day of the week.

Other stuff that I think should have made it:
Coldplay - Clocks
Arcade Fire - Wake Up
Arcade Fire - No Cars Go
Muse - Time Is Running Out
Muse - Knights Of Cydonia
Probably some other Muse tracks
Green Day - Boulevard Of Broken Dreams
Smashing Pumpkins - Stand Inside Your Love
R.E.M. - All The Way To Reno(You're Gonna Be A Star)
Sigur Ros - Untitled 4
Travis - Love Will Come Through
A bunch of Radiohead stuff(namely How To Disappear Completely, You And Whose Army, I Might Be Wrong, Life In A Glass House, There There, A Wolf At The Door, All I Need)
And yes, some U2(namely The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Beautiful Day, and Fez-Being Born)

Among others.

Not a terrible list, a lot of good stuff on it, but I don't think it's a great list either.

The Real Slim Shady was back at the beginning of the list, maybe in the 200s, I can't remember. Clocks also made the list somewhere in the 100s.

Also, Rosa Parks > B.O.B., Hey Ya. 90s Outkast FTW.

Or don't listen to him at all. Ever. Either way works, really.

Yes on "Wake Up," "Stand Inside Your Love," and "Knights of Cydonia," but yeah, no Green Day is good Green Day.

"B.O.B." achieves everything that socially-conscious and fucking rad rap/hip-hop sets out to do. And you can dance to it, or do whatever, maybe play some basketball, or be in a basement. Anyway, I have no qualms with that being up there.

When I look on these lists, I look more for notice than placement, especially since they're taking multiple contributors' lists to make this master list.

Do your Top 100 and post it or something. I'm sure that thread will catch on sometime in December.
