So, I originally had this huge entry typed up with YouTube links and cover art and everything, but my computer crashed in the middle of it. I had a blurb for all but five entries typed up, and I lost it all. So the entries are now going to be shorter, and I'm only going to just post the YouTube links rather than hide them in a URL. No cover art either.

Playlist on Spotify

40. Deltron 3030 - Things You Can Do
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pr9SQri2884
Del sounds great over this sci-fi cabaret beat.

39. Saint Etienne - Heart Failed (In the Back of a Taxi)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7JNs20K8Vg
One of the best singles bands of the '90s doing what they do in the noughties.

38. Mos Def - Umi Says
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsihHoyqwWY
The song that really showed that Mos Def transcended hip hop.

37. Rage Against the Machine - Calm Like a Bomb
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbGJeXShopk
Politics don't matter here, this song still makes me want to start a revolution even though I don't know what the lyrics are.

36. R Kelly - I Wish
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8CXUzepL6k
Kelly commits so much to everything he does that this cheesy tune becomes heartfelt and inspirational.

35. Enya - Only Time
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wfYIMyS_dI
Step 1 = Sad new age
Step 2 = 9/11
Step 3 = Still don't know what the fuck new age is really

34. ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead - Mistakes & Regrets
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v96X6XZ2rWE
Emo kids rage instead of cry

33. MJ Cole - Crazy Love
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiRMzC4aKVQ
Underrated 2-step jam, was hoping he would get bigger when dubstep broke...guess not

32. Dr Dre feat. Eminem - Forgot About Dre
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5a93wABHNM
Everybody raves about Eminem on this track, but this might be Dre's finest hour as a rapper

31. The Hives - Hate to Say I Told You So
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uz1Jwyxd4tE
Swag swag swag and that fun fat guy

30. Aaliyah - Try Again
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcIvIladNnQ
She's overrated because she died, but this is a great song.

29. Busta Rhymes - Fire
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLftjtN9Hpk
Dude sounds great over any kind of beat.

28. 3 Doors Down - Kryptonite
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPU8OAjjS4k
Broke away from the pitfalls of post-grunge by having a charismatic front man who didn't sound like a sheep giving birth to a demon when he sang.

27. Third Eye Blind - Never Let You Go
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kiHBFwGsUE
Masters of near perfect pop/rock singles

26. Nelly - Country Grammar
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5qKNlcUwKs
That beat is like Timbaland hangin' out in the dirty south, and Nelly sounds pretty cool over it.

25. Radiohead - Optimistic
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFKV6ZWuCAc
Stood out on Kid A because it's not completely depressing.

24. Clinic - The Second Line
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ppcLkALYas
Clinic is still the coolest sounding band...

23. Mystikal - Shake Ya Ass
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7B5KwXHFtw
Y'all know what this is about.

22. Outkast - BOB
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVyVIsvQoaE
I'm sure some British producer tried to meld hip hop and drum n' bass in the '90s, but the USA wins again!

21. Madonna - Don't Tell Me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRLHro9EPD0
This song explains why Lady Gaga will never be as good as Madonna - she could never be this understated.

20. Ludacris - Southern hospital
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QWQVm9J5DM
The best rapper who never released a good album. A standout from his first.

19. Radiohead - How to Disappear Completely
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAF8D0ugyVk
Those Scott Walker-esque strings, chord changes, excellent vocals. This is the sound of the pain you feel when a loved one has died. Here's to hoping someone close to me passes soon!

18. A Perfect Circle - 3 Libras
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9MAg9E5K3w
The best thing MJK ever did, he actually sounds vunerable here.

17. Joe feat. Mystikal - Stutter (Double Take Remix)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tE56SMO3FQQ
GORGEOUS production and Mystikal sounds great over that chilly beat.

16. The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLrnkK2YEcE
Is this a hipster novelty song? Asking for real.

15. Destiny's Child - Jumpin' Jumpin'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vjw92oUduEM
Like most DC songs, this one is all about Beyonce - love how her voice is in cadence with the hi hat.

14. Stone Temple Pilots - Sour Girl
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxS4lqppZ6Y
DeLeo bros are masters of texture, and I think this is the first time I heard Weiland sing in a not-Jim-Morrison-aping way.

13. Radiohead - Idioteque
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNqv3nHyteM
This song legit scares me. Those opening chords, gawdam.

12. AIR feat. Some Guy - Playground Love
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mQ4reLS8Lo
Pink Floyd goes French.

11. Beck - Nicotine & Gravy
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzZ0hfFrQW0
Not his best song in terms of songwriting, but definitely his best in terms of song construction.

10. Filter - Take a Picture
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8MAHQhKe7Q
Shitty industrial rock bands can occassionaly right great pop songs.

9. Eminem - Stan
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOMhN-hfMtY
This is how you tell a story, Immortal Technique.

8. Etienne de Crecy - Am I Wrong
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hu4dTob8avQ
The first house song I ever heard. Cool video too.

7. Mansun - I Can Only Disappoint U
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEWFigyE8R0
Melodramatic as fuck but still a great tune.

6. Coldplay - Yellow
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKNxeF4KMsY
I really love the guitar work in this one and that chorus is huge.

5. Daft Punk - One More Time
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGBhQbmPwH8
Pure bliss.

4. Faze Action - Moving Cities
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0krTFONiztY
Cinematic house.

3. Life Without Buildings - New Town
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smZDTefLZ9M
Nearly too quirky for its own good, full-throttle yet understated. Sublime.

2. Three 6 Mafia - Sippin' on da Syrup
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOWKGXpl9E0
I think it was ol' Quinn who said he'd rather hear 36M repeat the same phrase over and over again than listen to some abstract rapper spit poetry.

1. Jay-Z - Big Pimpin'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cgoqrgc_0cM
I miss when Jay Z had this much fire. I don't really care how detestable the lyrics are, he sounds perfect here.

Can't say I remember posting that, and plenty of abstract rappers I love for their lyrics (amongst other qualities), but I'd rather listen to the 666 than most anything. Detroit represent yall

Yeah, you're right. I was thinking of this post

Yeah man, I'm not even talking about conscious rappers that rap about social issues and the like though (not Common's biggest fan from what I've heard). Kanye has some great lines (few have been stuck in my head a lot lately), but more than a few that I couldn't care for if I tried. I think there are other rappers that does what he does better, too. Definitely not to say I don't like him though, I just think he's a tad overrated

And I'd prefer to listen to Three 6 Mafia than most. Just hearing the name makes me want to spark up a j and blast Underground: Vol 1 in a dark room and slap a punk bitch


Which was right after this post

taking this chance to say that conscious lyricists are overrated as shit. you know you'd rather listen to three 6 mafia repeating two lines all the way through a song every song rather than atmosphere or brother ali or something


Sorry about that!

Also,

All you fags that haven't already heard it need to listen to Three 6 Mafia's Underground Vol. 1. Absolutely brilliant and original.
