Why 2011 will be remembered

These are 40 highlights of last year off the top of my head. No particular ranking unless it says SOTY of course. =] What were some of your highlights of 2011?
1Chevelle
Same Old Trip

Probably has my most plays of every 2011 song in my Itunes.
2Red
The Outside

Classic Red, so goddamn catchy.
3Fair to Midland
Amarillo Sleeps Under My Pillow

Song of the year for me. So many different sounds and music styles in one song. And it fucking works.
4The Roots
Sleep

IMO some of Black Thought's best rapping ever.
5Cage the Elephant
Always Something

A very different way to kick off their latest album, too bad they didn't follow through and the album just becomes indie-wannabe garbage.
6Chevelle
Hats Off to the Bull

Chorus = Sex
7Beastie Boys
Don't Play No Games That I Can't Win

Santigold helps the Beastie Boys make the grooviest song of 2011.
8Crossfade
Suffocate

Surprisingly effective hard rock song from a band I never really took too seriously until this year.
9Foo Fighters
Dear Rosemary
10Limp Bizkit
Gold Cobra
11The Throne
Niggas In Paris

Kanye is the man...no...questions...hands...down. His verse in this is classic, stfu if you don't like it.
12Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues

No reason in hell I should like this, but I will sing my heart out to it every time it comes on.
13Sam Roberts
Graveyard Shift

I'm Canadian, this song sounds very Canadian, Sam Roberts looks even more like someone from Lord of the Rings. I'm down.
14The Roots
Lighthouse

Cannot...stop...tapping my feet to the drumbeat.
15Mastodon
Spectrelight

1:14 - 1:46: Mastodon ceases to be merely a band and becomes an actual roaring Mastodon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon = proof
16Limp Bizkit
Bring It Back

Oh how I wanted to hate this song and his shitty rapping soooo much, why does this have so many plays?!?!?!
17Chevelle
The Meddler

Song starts off kinda average tbh (even as a Chevelle fan). 3:21 hits..."Wtf have I been asleep the whole time, when did this song become this good? Is it still on 'The Meddler'? Wtf, omg omg this is amazinggggg!"
18Coldplay
Paradise

Infectious, srry sputnik
19Mastodon
Black Tongue
20Thrice
Anthology

This should have ended the album, it has such a bittersweet feel to it.
21Drake
Cameras / Good Ones Go Interlude

Make sure your bass is maxed for this song.
22Swarms
Hostile

Deviant made me do it. Can't say I'm a fan of dubstep but this song was worth looking into this.
23Panda Bear
Slow Motion

Weird seeing this on a list given what's already preceded it.
24The Roots
I Remember
25The Black Keys
Gold on the Ceiling
26Lupe Fiasco
Letting Go (ft. Sarah Green)

shattuuppp, it's good
27Thursday
No Answers

This is the kind of song that makes me re-think my life.
28Crossfade
Make Me a Believer

2:04 - 2:19: My personal favorite moment of music this year. This part made me jump outta mah chair.
29Crosses
Option

"Go back to doing stuff with Defto...oh alright okay I'll let it pass for now" :]
30Russian Circles
Atakla
31Machine Head
Be Still and Know

Epic
32Dinosaur Bones
Hunters

Perhaps the one song on here staff members on this site might not be aware of.
33Born of Osiris
Singularity
34Megadeth
Never Dead
35Lady GaGa
Electric Chapel

Perhaps the only song on the new album that stuck with me. It was IMO the most forgettable album of the year, but this song? Yeah...
36Battles
Futurna

Mindfuck
37And So I Watch You From Afar
Gang (Starting Never Stopping)

Clusterfuck
38Hetfield & Hetfield
Graveyard Suite

Pretty good from a very underground band.
39Foo Fighters
Bridges Burning

Heard this song come on...knew it would be a great album.
40Cage the Elephant
Aberdeen
