List was alright overall, but the fact that they put "All the Stars" in the top 50 and then openly admit that it's not because the song is good but because it was in Black Panther is one of the most egregious examples of critics not caring about music so much as cultural commentary.

Yeah, that pisses me off. They also called 'Shake It Out' 'Shake It Off' in the writeup, and they got the name of the Wilco song wrong.

Still one of the better lists.

Their genre lists are pretty boring - they're generally just taking all of the rock (or pop or whatever) songs out of the top 100 in the same order.

BTS at #99 is such a pandering move that I can't help but roll my eyes. If they want to include K-Pop, "Fake Love" is not even among Top 500 Best of the Decade.

Seeing "Terrible Love" by The National at #65 makes me happy, but it should have been the Alternate Version where the drums are more defined :music-rockon: Also, yay for SBTRKT at #54 with "Wild Fire". That bass-line is nastayyyyy.

"Diane Young" by Vampire Weekend in Top 10 is a head-scratcher. The song is cute and all, but hardly Top 10 material.

I really like this list. It covers the bases of a lot of the pop music of this decade. Maybe it leans too heavily on pop for a general list, but I'm happy.
14th amendment. Let's go.
