  1. Pingback: XXX: Thirty Years of 91X Year End Countdowns becomes The Top 888 Modern Rock Acts of All-Time | "Yer doin' great." (a muzak clickclack)

  2. Best song of this bunch? Well, there’s a lot. Hm. I wanna go with “Der Kommisar” or Lone Justice or Chapterhouse or even White Town. Or House of Love! (who have a new album out this year, I just read…).

    But I think I’m going to have to go with De La’s “Eye Know”.

    Worst song here? Um…there’s a lot here that I haven’t heard, but I’ll go with Mike & the Mechanics’ “Silent Running”.
