Re: Predictions: Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs update 2021

According to this list, Nevermind is the 30th best selling album of all time, with 30 million copies sold worldwide. So I'd say your experience isn't indicative of the album's popularity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_albums https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_al...

He's still going to make the whole list and probably the top 100, but considering a lot of peop...

The two songs in the old top 10 I feel most confident in saying they'll stay are "What's Going On" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (both of which I wouldn't be surprised to see at #1).

Does it though? Only 2 of the games in the 11-20 range came out in the past 15 years. I guess it's all just a matter of perspective, but to me, games that came out in the 1990s are definitely "older" games (I was born in 1991 for what it's worth).
