Top Albums of the Naughtiest Decade

I wanted to call this the Top 25 albums of the decade, but I know some of you shit nuggets will never stop at 25. Here's mine. You know the drill. Yes, yes, yes we all know it's "way too soon" for you self-important artist types to try to evaluate an entire decade, but let me recommend that you stop being gaping pussies for a moment and remember that this is the internet and none of it matters.

2. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco
3. Boxer - The National
4. Funeral - Arcade Fire
5. Ágætis Byrjun - Sigur Ros
6. Turn On The Bright Lights - Interpol
7. Michigan - Sufjan Stevens
8. The Seldom Seen Kid- Elbow
9. The Stage Names - Okkervil River
10. In Rainbows - Radiohead
11. Alligator - The National
12. Youth and Youngmanhood - Kings of Leon
13. Elephant - The White Stripes
14. The Magic Numbers - The Magic Numbers
15. I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning - Bright Eyes
16. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots - The Flaming Lips
17. Armchair Apocrypha - Andrew Bird
18. Sea Change - Beck
19. You Forgot It In People - Broken Social Scene
20. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes

Thanks for starting the thread. I'm working on a few lists for my favorite songs and albums, but they need some whittling down.

I was just yammering over on Facebook about putting U2 on these lists (a friend joked that my list of top songs would all be U2). It's like I'm such a big U2 fan that I struggle with comparing them to other music. I kind of compare them to other U2 songs and albums, but sometimes can't figure out where they fit in the larger picture.

Like, I'm thinking about putting ATYCLB on the fave albums list, even though I think No Line is better. It's like it belongs there because it set the tone for U2 in this decade (for better or worse), and hey, I sure did love it when it came out. Also, I think NLOTH is too new for it to end up in a "best of the decade" list. Maybe.

I know it doesn't matter, since it's just my list of shit I've dug over the past 10 years, but there you go.

My favorite thing about you, GAF, is that you put Taylor Swift above Radiohead without a hint of irony ... a whole wagon full of pedophilia ... but no irony.

I'm going to attempt to come up with a list today, so I set up a playlist in iTunes with only 2000s music. Apparently, 13,064 of my 20,749 songs (or about 63%) are from this decade, which is a bit absurd when I think about it.

Anyway, hopefully the list doesn't end up with 92 albums on it...shooting for 50 or so.

So far, I have a list of about 45 albums, 70 or so songs, and 29 of my Big, Dumb Pop songs, because they're so beloved, they need their own list.

They're in alphabetical order for each release year. Hardly ready to be posted. But I'm working on it. I'm also going to add eight more to make it a cool 100.

Man, doing a list of top songs of the decade would be insane. Way more difficult than albums. Off the top of my head I would be very tempted to say that "Wake Up" is the song of the decade. "Rebellion (Lies)" and "Neighborhood #1" are stunning, as well. I'm not even particularly a big fan of that band (mostly due to their personalities/nationality) but, yeah, I think "Wake Up" would maybe be my song of the decade.

The hardest part of my favorite songs list so far? Picking a song off Funeral. Hell, I don't think I can even pick two. There are a solid 4 that I love so much, I can't bear to leave them off any list.
