LAST UPDATED: March 18, 2018.
This will be for my 2018 daily project, in which a new song will be published daily. For those of you who arrived via Facebook and Twitter, please bookmark this page if you wish to follow along, as I will be updating daily but will not be posting a link to this page every day. Or follow this blog! Thank you and enjoy listening along!
Special shoutout to my good friend and media partner Jeff Trelewicz of Jeff Trel Books for inspiring this project! Go check out his blog and buy his books! BUY THEM NOW!
Somehow, someway, I managed to sort through thousands and thousands of songs in my collection and pick out my 365 favorites. I did this by sorting through the most played songs in my media collections, and then moving them about in personal preference. I did this without including any WWE songs, TV theme songs (originals), video game tracks, Christmas songs, or even movie score pieces, so the list is “real” music. Well, it’s all real, but this is based on stuff you could hear on the radio. I do have a few personal preferences in cover material in here, but we’ll get to those along the way.
In my last post, I mentioned who my favorite artists were. You may shocked at how few of those songs make the cut. In some cases, none of them cracked my top 365! You may be surprised as to what comes up. Then again, you may not be. Consider this the countdown to end all music countdowns! Although I’ll definitely do more musical blogs this year.
In any case, I hope you enjoy this list! Be prepared for some surprises. Do you know what my #1 song will be? Each passing week we climb higher up the charts, and #1 will ring in the new year for 2019!
Enjoy the countdown! And remember to check back daily!
MY 365 FAVORITE SONGS OF ALL TIME
Each following date will provide a clue as to what you’ll hear next. See if you can guess what it is!
365. Escape the Fate – “One For The Money“
Although released in 2013, I only discovered this song two years ago, and played it a lot. It’s very catchy, although it’s lyrics are NSFW, unless your work is good with a lot of F-bombs. It’s catchy enough to make this countdown, even if it’s in the last spot. But hey, it beat out literally thousands of other songs for this spot!
364. Hootie & The Blowfish – “Only Wanna Be With You“
While I’ve never been the biggest fan of Hootie & The Blowfish, I’ve always enjoyed this song and the accompanying sports themed music video. Darius Rucker is a country singer now, and a damn good one, even though I’m not a country fan. I give him a lot of respect for that.
363. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – “The Impression That I Get“
I’m not a big ska guy, but damn, this song is catchy! Sadly if you like ska you may be disappointed that no other ska will appear on my countdown. Reel Big Fish was considered but did not make the final cut.
362. Helmet – “Unsung“
I don’t recall when I discovered this song, but I remember being excited when it was featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. I was able to see Helmet perform live at Warped Tour in 2006, and I was front row for them. This is still my favorite song of theirs, and probably always will be.
361. Rev Theory – “Hell Yeah“
I discovered this band when they were still a revelation, but when they dropped the -elation in their name, their big hit became my jam for a period of time. I love this song, with its high energy, it makes me want to go out and do…something. And headbang. Lots of headbanging.
360. Fozzy – “Judas“
It was easy to get hooked on Chris Jericho’s band because he’s my favorite wrestler of all time, but it was even easier to stay hooked on Fozzy because of how good they are. Judas is their new single, and the accompanying music video is fascinating to watch. This song is currently my favorite of theirs.
359. R.E.M. – “Everybody Hurts“
I’ve always been a fan of R.E.M., so I don’t remember how I first heard this song, but it’s one of their better songs. It’s also pretty true, every single one of us hurts at some point in our lives, and it’s okay to embrace that side and feel feelings. This is a good song to listen to when you’re feeling down, because it’s surprisingly uplifting despite the somber overtones.
358. Starset – “Monster“
Another one of those songs I discovered last year but have played a lot since then. The music video is unique too, like something out of the OASIS from Ready Player One. I really like this song, and it will probably get bigger for me as the years go on. But since it’s still so new, it won’t be much higher on the list for now.
357. Ghost – “Square Hammer“
A lot of newer songs are down this low, simply because they haven’t been my library that long. This was a 2017 discovery that caught on with me big time. The chorus is insanely catchy and the music video is done very well. But are they just Ghost, or Ghost B.C.? I’m not sure…
356. I Prevail – “Alone“
When I first heard the opening rift for this song on the radio, I thought I was listening to a new Linkin Park track. I was a little disappointed when it wasn’t, but I kept listening anyway. Now this song is part of this elite group of 365 favorite songs, and it only came out last year!
355. Nothing More – “Go To War“
This isn’t the Nothing More song that made me a fan of the band (that will come later) but this track cemented me as a fan of their work. The song has a good message behind it too. Fighting amongst our loved ones can lead to more problems. Everyone can relate to that.
354. The Pretty Reckless – “Take Me Down“
Taylor Momsen was Cindy Lou Who, and she grew up to be…how do I put this? Smoking hot. She’s also an amazing singer. I have a hardcore soft spot for rock & roll bands with female vocalists, so the Pretty Reckless is a band that I have two eyes on. This won’t be the last time you hear Taylor Momsen’s voice on this countdown.
353. Weezer – “Hash Pipe“
I think my first Weezer song was Buddy Holly (popping up later) but this song helped cement me as a Weezer fan. They aren’t a top band for me, but I wouldn’t say no to attending one of their shows. Their songs aren’t usually very heavy sounding as far as overall instrumentals go, but this one does a nice job. Who else has their hash pipes?
352. Twenty One Pilots – “Ride“
This song was on regular rotation in 2016, which caused me to become a fan of it, but it got a lot more play when WWE put it in their 2K17 video game. The video is a lot of fun, as we switch from day to night faster than Castlevania II. I’m a fan of Twenty One Pilots now, but sadly, their other songs didn’t make the final cut here, so this will be the last time I play them on this countdown.
351. The Beatles – “Let It Be“
The classic rock band that sparked the British Invasion has arrived on my countdown with an excellent song. I hope the legacy of the Beatles is one that we’ll never just…let it be. Ahem. I’ll show myself out now. Until tomorrow anyway.
350. The Proclaimers – “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)“
Ahh yes, one of the greatest one hit wonders of all time. While this song is a staple of the movie Benny & Joon starting Johnny Depp, I connect it to my nostalgic childhood where MTV actually, you know, played music videos. This song will never get old no matter what.
349. Rammstein – “AMERIKA“
German metal band Rammstein has been something I’ve enjoyed since before high school thanks to friends in scouts who took German classes and embraced the culture. This song satirizes America so perfectly with its music video, even if I don’t speak much of the language, I can still rock out all the same. We’re all living in America! Coca-Cola, wonderbras!
348. Usher featuring Lil’ Jon & Ludacris – “Yeah!“
Yes I am serious. This was the biggest hit in 2004 and I was part of the reason this song was so popular. It’s insanely catchy, with Usher’s vocal talents (he’s a pretty good singer) being backed by two very good rappers in Lil’ Jon and Ludacris. I hope you went on a nostalgia trip when you played this, like I did revisiting it!
347. Thirty Seconds to Mars – “Walk on Water“
Jared Leto (a good choice for the Joker – fight me) and his band film 24 hours in the life of America taking place across the country on the 4th of July. It’s a really cool video showcasing an ambitious project, and the song fits in perfectly. This song will have you feeling like you can walk on water too!
346. Eminem featuring Dido – “Stan“
I’ve been an Eminem fan since the Real Slim Shady. He’s easily my favorite rapper/hip hop artist. This song is extremely powerful, and the video is so intense that it’s heavily censored. Stan, a obsessed fan of Em, keeps writing to him but he doesn’t hear back and goes off the deep end. Dido’s song “Thank You” provides the chorus, which creates the eerie atmosphere, and sets the tone for one of Eminem’s most powerful songs of all time.
345. Taio Cruz – “Dynamite“
While this type of music generally isn’t my thing, a few songs catch me that I enjoy listening to and even fist pumping like a clubber. I heard this song while it was a popular hit, as it played at many of my friend’s weddings, and then it was played at mine. And yes, I was fist-pumping. Don’t judge.
344. LMFAO – “Party Rock Anthem“
Like Dynamite, this is a song that I really started hearing at parties and weddings and it kind of grew on me. I don’t really care for any of LMFAO’s other songs, but this one is quite literally an anthem for those times when I want to party…or rock! I guess the title works.
343. Placebo – “Running Up That Hill“
I first heard this cover of the Kate Bush single by Placebo when it was used for the trailer for the 2009 vampire movie, Daybreakers. I love the haunting rendition so much that it became a favorite of mine. There are a lot of covers I play way more than the original, or have instead of the original, and many more will show up on this countdown.
342. Sixx:A.M. – “Rise“
I’ve always enjoyed Sixx:A.M. so I liked this single, but I had a hell of a time finding it when it came out. I couldn’t locate it on iTunes or even YouTube. It was like it was only playing on the radio for the longest time. I thought I was going to have to go old school and hold a tape recorder up to the stereo speaker! In retrospect it was probably only a week or so I couldn’t obtain the song, but it felt like forever.
341. Talking Heads – “(Nothing But) Flowers“
Ahhhh, paradise! This song depicts a world where we’ve reverted back to a state before society discovered technology. Like many people, Clerks II introduced me to this beautiful masterpiece. If only the paradise it speaks of was true. I think I’d be fine.
340. Jason Mraz – “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)“
I’m not really a Jason Mraz fan, but I’ve always really loved this song. It’s got a good upbeat melody and message behind it, so it’s hard not to get addicted to it very quickly. Jason Mraz has another song I enjoy, but otherwise his style of music isn’t my main taste. Still, I can make exceptions for almost anybody, and this is proof positive.
339. Twista featuring Kanye West & Jamie Foxx – “Slow Jamz“
Back in my early college days, I was commuting, and forced to find a new radio station to enjoy when I could no longer detect the ones near home (this was in the early days of mp3 players, kids). I found a top hits station, and this was the popular song of the time. I was hooked from day one. This song still gives me a great feeling of nostalgia every time I play it.
338. The Turtles – “So Happy Together“
Does anybody else get a feeling of euphoria listening to this? It makes me so…happy. So very happy. Remember when Smash Bros used it in their original Nintendo ads? Amazing overall. A classic through and through.
337. Saving Abel – “Addicted“
If you don’t think this song is sexy, you’re lying and/or wrong. While the video version is the censored radio version, it’s still a steamy tune to play in the bedroom, or on the road which is how I normally play it. Saving Abel has some other good songs, but this is my favorite, and the one they’re known best for.
336. Styx – “Come Sail Away“
I admit, there are only a few Styx songs I can truly tolerate, but this is one of them. It’s relaxing yet it rocks all the same. Remember Eric Cartman’s cover from the Chef Aid album? It’s surprisingly good, despite Cartman being an awful singer. Styx has a unique sound and most folks either love them or hate them. I can take or leave them but I’ll always be a fan of this song.
335. Rockwell – “Somebody’s Watching Me“
While I’ve always enjoyed this song as a whole, I generally don’t listen to it during the year unless it’s Halloween season. It’s a great song for the season, since it has a creepy overtone with the singer feeling like somebody is stalking him in his own home. There are a small handful of creepy visuals in the video, but not many. Still, it’s a Halloween staple of mine, and I play it enough that it makes this countdown.
334. Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Bad Moon Rising“
Another staple from my Halloween playlist is this classic by CCR, one of my favorite bands of all time. I love their mixture of cultural folk rock. Bad Moon Rising isn’t their best song for me, but it’s up there for sure. While I definitely play this around October more than any other time, it’s safe to say it will remain cemented on my list for a long time.
333. Iyaz – “Replay“
I honestly can’t explain why this song hooked me so well. The beat and the soothing voice of Iyaz certainly help, but I think it’s because I heard it on repeat (or replay) at Universal for the years I worked there. Whatever, I like it so it really doesn’t matter how it came to be. And yes, I have listened to this on replay once.
332. Skillet – “The Last Night“
Who would’ve thought a Christian rock band would hook me in so deeply? This is a powerful song about a girl contemplating suicide and getting the help she needs. It’s very relatable song to anyone who has ever known someone going through this, as I have. Skillet’s songs are all beautifully performed, both vocally and instrumentally, and you will see a lot more of them on this countdown.
331. Pat Benatar – “Hit Me With Your Best Shot“
I’m not the biggest fan of Pat Benatar, but I’ve been a fan of this song since I first heard it when I was a kid. It has a simple melody that gets stuck in your head, and it has a good message about how she can withstand whatever is thrown at her. I remember acing this song in Guitar Hero and feeling like a rock star. Rock on!
330. Soul Asylum – “Misery“
Ah, Soul Asylum. Many people remember them for their Runaway Train video, but this my favorite song of theirs. I remember first hearing it on the airwaves of MTV, back when they actually played music, and it found its way back into my heart when Clerks II used it for their closing song. Will this be the last time Clerks comes up on this countdown? Maybe…maybe not.
329. Savage Garden – “Truly Madly Deeply“
This song is so mellow and relaxing. For a band called Savage Garden, they sure sound more like a garden than something savage. That isn’t a knock at them either! I love their music and this song is their best. Guys, play this for your girls. Or sing it, if your voice isn’t awful.
328. Death Cab For Cutie – “Soul Meets Body“
I admit, my interest in this song was sparked by a girl I was interested in a very long time ago, and its impact on my life has faded since. I still like it enough to give it a spot on the countdown though. It’s mellow, relaxing, and kind of fun…but this is a weird band name. Possibly the weirdest in my collection. I also know literally nothing else by them.
327. Daughtry – “Feels Like Tonight“
He isn’t going to appear much on this countdown, but rest assured, I am a very big fan of Chris Daughtry. I don’t watch American Idol, but seeing him on that show made me a fan of his instantly, and an anti-Idol person the moment he was voted off. He has an incredible voice, and knows exactly how to use his range to get the most out of his songs.
326. Shaggy featuring Ricardo Ducent – “It Wasn’t Me“
As soon as I hear this song, I am instantly traveling backwards through time. This song is catchy but it’s also ridiculous. My girl caught be cheating, so the way to get out of it is to lie and claim it wasn’t me? That doesn’t sound like a smart strategy, yet here we are! This may be my favorite throwback song for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which is that this song makes me laugh.
325. Jonathan Young – “Wanna Be Like You“
Ah yes, Jonathan Young! My favorite musical artist on YouTube! This man covers a LOT of great songs, but my favorites are his Disney tracks. He does metal and other types of covers of all the great Disney classics. You will hear more of these as the year goes on. We kick it off with this jazzy cover of King Louie singing to Mowgli that he wants to be a human too from the Jungle Book.
324. Future Idiots – “Bad Romance“
Another YouTube cover artist strikes! The Future Idiots have a bunch of covers, but their Lady Gaga rock covers are the best. Bad Romance is a guilty pleasure song of mine, but once I heard this rock version, I ended up ranking it a lot higher than people would expect. Lzzy Hale does a great version of this song too, but I chose to rank this one because it’s been in my collection the longest.
323. Eminem – “Not Afraid“
I’m not a big hip hop guy, but I love Eminem. I have most of his albums, and I have the fondest memories of Encore, which is one of my favorite albums ever. This is a newer song, so it doesn’t rank too high, but I think it’s incredible. The message is powerful, and performed well, like most of Eminem’s biggest hits. I relate to the message in the song, and connect with it on an emotional level.
322. Skillet – “Savior“
Pretty simple reason this song is so high on my list. It was the entrance theme used by my mentor in wrestling, Justyn Glory. This is how I discovered Skillet, and usually the first song that you hear sticks with you no matter what. Thank you, Glory, for turning heel and giving me a new musical love!
321. Weezer – “Buddy Holly“
Weezer is a good band, and this is one of their more well known songs. The accompanying music video which puts them on the set of Happy Days is a lot of fun too. Does he really look like Buddy Holly? He does. There isn’t much more to say about this one.
320. Temple of the Dog – “Hunger Strike“
Oh Chris Cornell, the music world misses you terribly. He was involved with so many great bands like Audioslave and Soundgarden, but this hit from Temple of the Dog always stood out for me. I’ve never been on a hunger strike – I like being fat too much – but if ever do one, I’ll play this on repeat to inspire me.
319. Unwritten Law – “Seein’ Red“
I remember thinking this song was called Follow the Leader and being unable to find it for a long time. This is the only song by Unwritten Law that I know, but it’s a really good song. It takes me back to a simpler time, back when I didn’t have to follow any leaders or even be one. Throwback songs will always hold a special place in my heart.
318. Breaking Benjamin featuring Valora – “Blow Me Away“
I was never a big Halo player, because when the games came out and got popular, I didn’t own an Xbox. But I was interested in the music that came with the franchise. The Halo 2 theme, which is one of the best, quickly made it onto my playlist, along with this gem from one of my all time favorite bands. I choose this version with Valora singing backup vocals over the original, because I think her voice enhances the song big time.
317. Gary Jules – “Mad World“
I like Tears for Fears. They create some incredible music that a lot of bands make covers are, and many times, the covers are better than their version (sorry guys!). Gary Jules’ famous cover of Mad World was part of the chilling Donnie Darko movie, which is a cult favorite that has a ton of atmosphere when this song starts playing. It’s got a dark overtone, just like the movie had.
316. Staind – “So Far Away“
I admit I used to be a bigger fan of Staind, and I’ve grown out of them in recent years. I’m still a big fan of this song though. When I bought the album 14 Shades of Grey, I fell in love with this song, and actually got mad when it got mainstream attention a scant few weeks later. While that seems like a silly thing to be mad about, it happened. I don’t think this song can rank any higher today, but it’ll always be a go-to with Staind.
315. Avenged Sevenfold – “So Far Away“
Like most of the people I know who enjoy A7X, my first song of theirs was Bat Country, which I first heard on satellite radio. While that song doesn’t make my countdown, several of their tracks do, and this is definitely one of their better songs. M Shadows has an incredible voice, and while some characterize their vibe as emo (wrong) I view them as hard rock at some of its finest.
314. Taproot – “Poem“
When this song first came out, I was convinced it was a different band. This was YEARS ago so I don’t remember which band I thought it was, but I do distinctly remember being surprised to hear the name Taproot. This is still one of only two songs by them I have, the other being Calling (also a good song) and while I enjoy listening to both, I don’t see myself adding any more Taproot to my playlist anytime soon.
313. Sponge – “Plowed“
High energy and a unique sound make this song by Sponge stand out from the crowd. This is still played in rotation today, but I added it to my collection back in the early 2000’s when I was hearing it a lot more often (and when I first got a car so the radio was life) and it’s been a favorite ever since.
312. Nothing More – “This is the Time (Ballast)“
Nothing More returns, with the first song of theirs I ever heard. This was popular on the airwaves a few years ago, and sounds like a power ballad. It has a great buildup, epic sounding chorus, and the way it exits leaves an impact too. A great beginning, middle, and end. Not many songs have this kind of structure in them!
311. Pop Evil – “Footsteps (Go Higher)“
This was #1 on the rock charts in 2016 for a really long time, and I became seriously addicted to it. Pop Evil was never a band I was that into, but this single made me check out a lot more of their work, single-handed. I also remember having a really hard time finding it online too, which was frustrating, but it all worked out in the end.
310. Sixx:A.M. – “Life is Beautiful“
Well, it is, isn’t it? I remember this song as another satellite radio grab. Sixx:A.M. has been around for a lot longer than I realized. This was the first song I ever heard by them, and as much as I enjoy their newer hit “Rise,” I think this is their best work. I also like the idea of no one crying at my funeral. I’d rather it be a celebration of life rather than a mourning of death, personally.
309. Hollywood Undead – “Young“
XM Radio introduced me to the unique sound of Hollywood Undead with their signature song, called Undead. But it was this song that actually made me turn around and go, “damn these guys are actually pretty cool.” I really don’t care too much for them today, so it’s not like I’m going to go out and buy a ticket to see them perform. Still, Young is a good song so listen to it.
308. Thirty Seconds to Mars – “The Kill (Bury Me)“
There’s always going to be that one song that makes you discover a new band, and completely sell you on them. This is the song that led me to Thirty Seconds to Mars. At the time, it was their biggest hit. It isn’t my favorite song of theirs (you’ll see that one later on the list) but it’s a great song on its own.
307. Whitesnake – “Here I Go Again“
I do like this song, but it’s massively overplayed. Doesn’t Whitesnake have other songs? At work, they usually have the 70’s and 80’s station on, and it plays at least once a day in rotation. On my rock station, it plays there too…so I hear this song a minimum of twice a day. While I like it, I can’t really rank it too much higher for that reason.
306. ZZ Top – “Sharp Dressed Man“
What can I say? Every girl is crazy about a sharp dressed man, and even more so when that man is the commissioner of a wrestling promotion! I know it’s cheesy, but that’s the whole point! It’s supposed to be cheesy! ZZ Top rocks, even if Bart Simpsons once mistook a group of rabbis in New York City for them.
305. Hoobastank – “Out of Control“
I always dug Hoobastank, although they weren’t my favorite band by any means, I still owned two of their albums. I could argue a case for a few other songs of theirs, like Crawling in the Dark and Same Direction, but my personal favorite is this one. It’s the heaviest and has the most energy, so I gave it the duke in this battle.
304. Jimmy Eat World – “A Praise Chorus“
Jimmy Eat World is the perfect example of what I consider to be lighthearted alternative rock. They have an easy sound to listen to, without being too heavy for days when you aren’t in the mood, but not so light that they come off as whiny or emo. This is the song that brought me to them, and it’s still a favorite of mine today.
303. Green Day – “Boulevard of Broken Dreams“
Like most people my age, Green Day came on my radar when Dookie came out. But some of their newer stuff from the American Idiot album was great too. This is one of those songs that hooked me from the beginning, and I still enjoy singing along to it when it’s played on the radio today. We’ve all walked down this street before.
302. blink-182 – “I Miss You“
I still think a fair number of people associate blink-182 as the “All The Small Things Band” when they have so many other quality songs to choose from. Not that All the Small Things is bad, but I Miss You is one such example of a much better song by blink-182. It may not have the high energy, but it’s still a great piece of music.
301. Daughtry featuring Slash – “What I Want“
I had no idea that one of my favorite vocalists and one of my favorite shredders had collaborated on something until my friend Johnny Toxic made this his pro wrestling entrance song on the indies. I made it a part of my playlist immediately, and I still rock out to it, even though John focuses more on promoting these days instead of actually wrestling.
300. Iron Maiden – “Run to the Hills“
I love Iron Maiden. I was a casual fan for a long time, but in college I worked with a pretty hardcore fan and he helped me rejuvenate my interest in the band. Their awesome documentary Flight 666 helped too. This isn’t my favorite Maiden track, but it’s up there. Run to the hills! Run for your life! I love their energy.
299. AC/DC – “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap“
I don’t remember how my love for AC/DC started, but I’ve become a huge fan of theirs in recent years, so much that they’re one of my favorite bands of all time now. I have a ton of their music, and several tracks will make this countdown. This song is simple, direct, and has a pretty fun albeit aggressive message. This song reminds me of Dean Ambrose.
298. The Beatles – “Hey Jude“
Simply put, this is my favorite song ever by the popular British band. I don’t know why, but when I think of the Beatles, I always think of this song first and foremost. Maybe it’s because it was the longest number one hit of theirs stateside? I just love how the melody flows from slow and easy to a tad faster and more dramatic. I will love this song forever and always.
297. Green Day – “Longview“
Time for an example of a song that got me into the band, but isn’t my favorite song by them. I fell into Dookie through this song directly, when it was all the rage on MTV. Despite the censoring in the video itself, I ended up becoming a lifelong Green Day fan by listening to Longview.
296. Guns N’ Roses – “Civil War“
What we have here, is failure to communicate. The quote leads into one of the most iconic GNR songs, as no one needs a civil war. I’m a pretty big fan of GNR, although I’ve always been a questionable fan of Axl Rose. You will hear more GNR on this countdown as we approach the top of the list.
295. Chevelle – “Jars“
This probably isn’t the best Chevelle song out there, but it’s my personal favorite. The Red is the song that made me a Chevelle fan but Jars is the song that has stuck with me the longest. Sometimes I feel like I’ve had enough of the world myself.
294. In This Moment – “Call Me“
There’s nothing I love more than a REALLY well done cover of a song. In This Moment takes an already badass Blondie hit and amplifies it with their own spin. The song becomes heavier, feels faster, and ten times more amazing than the Blondie version, which is saying something.
293. Avenged Sevenfold – “Nightmare“
Ever have a bad dream? Was it a nightmare? Avenged Sevenfold is here to rock your nightmares away! Every new album they’ve come out with has had a hardcore signature track, and this was the case with their album by the same name. The song is about fighting your demons, a situation we’ve all had to face at one point in time.
292. Fall Out Boy – “Uma Thurman“
How can you not love a band named after a Simpsons character? Sarah wins a contest to “assist” Fall Out Boy, which looks more like a bunch of frat initiation requests, but she seems to have a good time doing it. The real catchy part of the song is the rift from the Munsters opening credits theme that gets the song stuck in your head, and onto a countdown like this one.
291. Killswitch Engage – “Holy Diver“
Holy crap! Killswitch Engage covering a hit by Ronnie James Dio?! And a badass medieval setting for the music video?! YES!!!! I never thought anyone could cover Dio and somehow make his music even better, but Killswitch pulls it off in this amazing tribute to a legendary rocker.
290. Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – “S.O.B.“
What do you get with you take a folksy and country sounding tune, mix in some ska-ish instrumentals and a Capella, put it in a prison setting, and let the funk loose? You get this incredibly catchy tow-tapping number from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats! Now, somebody get me a goddamn drink!
289. Guns N’ Roses – “November Rain“
One of the best songs ever created by GNR, November Rain is a long ballad that showcases Axl Rose’s abilities to sing with a powerful instrumental backup. Unfortunately, the radio only knows how to play the abridged version of this song, which makes me wonder why they even bother. Give me all of it, or give me none of it.
288. CLUE: Long titled song, four-lettered band name.
