|100 Songs From 2013|
Here are 100 songs from different artists in 2013 that I thought rrrrwere rad.
Sha-shabba Ranks. Trap Lord bangs.
Grande is adorable and this is probably my favorite pop song of the year. Way catchy.
Best punk song that includes a harmonica solo.
BR still got it.
Everybody Wants Something From Me
Bad Side combines youth crew hardcore with 80?s harDCore and it?s really cool.
Pretty unique style of hardcore punk.
Arts and Crafts
Melvins/Unsane/Jesus Lizard worship from Kansas City.
RIYL Dinosaur Jr. and riffs
Toughest Boston hardcore track of tha year.
|12||Chance The Rapper|
Cocoa Butter Kisses
Acid Rap rules, funnest track on it. Probably due to Twista?s verse.
A rare but dope feel-good trap song.
Thundercat?s basswork/production/whatever on this is great. Song gets my feels.
Shit sounds straight out of the ?90s. Love Thee Way Eye See It almost as much as
Down In Equador
Still one of the best 21st century hardcore bands.
Free Your Mind
Never was (and still not really) into Cut Copy, but this song is cool as fuck. Song
reminds me of people rollerblading n shit.
Side B (Dope Song)
Fist pump rap jam for 2k13
Grungey emo n stuff
Epic shit. You know bout it.
Big DG fan but not as into Gov Plates as their other shit. This song and Anne Bonny
are sick tho.
Only really liked this song and a couple others but pretty intense post-hc.
Haven?t listened to any of his past stuff or any other Raider Klan stuff for real but this
song really caught me. Very catchy, unique attitude.
Gun In My Mouth
One of the most desperate punk tracks you?ll hear all year.
Drake is stupid most of the time, but this song makes me feel good about myself. 2
Chainz goes in too.
Love that BBNG produced this track. Super dark n shit. I think I was a little too hyped
on Doris when it came out but it really is a solid album.
Catchy pop-punk jam bout politics.
D.R.U.G.S. was a pretty mediocre tape, but I knew they had a great style. Glad
BetterOffDEAD turned out so good.
The straight edge is cool.
Great super-upbeat jam from Frank. This album didn?t have enough electric guitar tho.
|31||The Front Bottoms|
Twin Sized Mattress
These dudes have gotten better.
Best punk intro track this year. Shit?ll have you slammin?.
New Chicago hardcore band, one member from Culo. Real pissed, real fast, real good.
Songs don?t needa rhyme.
File under songs that made me wish I listen to metal more. Sick and creepy.
The Sure Shot
The part where he says ?It?s tha sure shot!? w/ the breakdown thing gets me real
hyped. Production on this album is so good. More rappers need to rap over real
LP wasn?t quite as good as their EPs but definitely has some jams. Sucks they?re
probably breaking up.
May Love Prevail
Didn?t like this album as much as everyone else but this song is super fun!
|38||Hounds Of Hate|
Pound Of Flesh
Great straight edge from PA.
Really cool hearing them doing more melodic shit now while still keeping their edge.
Great album opener.
I really liked 212 by Azealia Banks and this year I really like Work. Sux that all of
their other songs aren?t that great.
|41||Into It. Over It.|
New North Side Air
Evan?s voice fuckin soars on this thing. Great guitar work too.
Monae and Badu are a dream team. The rap Monae does at the end is incredible. "The
booty don?t lie."
Didn?t think Joey was too special last year when 1999 came out. Heard this jam this
year and got Summer Knights, loved it, then went back and was able to appreciate
1999. Pro Era?s doing great shit.
Suit & Tie
The only song from either JT album this year that?s really stuck with me.
It was hard as fuck to choose between this, Black Skinhead, and New Slaves but
Bound 2 is just unfuckwithable, throwback Kanye.
A Lizard State
The most interesting and dynamic song on this album. I really hope Krule keeps
moving in this jazz-influenced direction.
Bitch Mob Anthem Remix
?Mothafucka it?s the bitch mob."
Rich As Fuck
?Don?t talk to the cops/I don?t speak pig latin.? I?ve always hated Wayne but this song
is too funny.
|49||Lumpy and The Dumpers|
Rad slime-punk jam from STL.
Ode To Viceroy
Cool, laid-back track. Guitar in some parts reminds me a little of Lonerism which is
Watching Movies With The Sound Off caught me off guard. Always hated Miller but
there are a handful of solid tracks on there. This song is fun and nostalgia-y.
Cuz Bubble Butt gets kind of annoying.
Half Angel Half Light
I have mixed feelings about this album but this just an amazing straight-forward rock
Hard to pick a favorite off this album, might be my favorite of the year. It?s like
listening to a dream.
More female pop artists need to be this badass. M.I.A. > Lady GaGa any day of the
Solid release, favorite track.
Probably my favorite NYHC track of the year. "1-2-3-4 teen sex, what?s next?"
|58||Modern Life Is War|
Cracked Sidewalk Surfer
Was (but shouldn?t have been) surprised by this album. This song is super cool and
energetic and the singer does thing he like rolls his R at the beginning of this song
|59||My Bloody Valentine|
She Found Now
Being young/dumb, I hadn?t listened to Loveless before everyone got excited over this
album. Thanx internet.
I Want One
New York rock ?n? roll like you wouldn?t believe. Sounds like early Detroit rock meets
Ramones. Get this tape!!!
Hc/punk from Denver. Very simple and to the point, but kickass at the same time.
Born To Die In Suburbia
St. Louis really surprised me with all the good punk this year.
Real freaky and well-done hardcore from Olympia, WA.
?Society?s hands around my neck/I?d rather go home and touch my dick."
Where Do I Begin?
The opening pulls you right in. Very nice/clever songwriting. Glad I got to see him and
Evan this year.
Please Don't Tell My Father That I Used His 1996 Honda Accord To Destroy The Town Of Willow Grove,
Fun story. The horns are great.
Crawling On Bruised Knees
I?m usually not into straight-up noise stuff but this EP is really intense. Sacred Bones
is doin cool shit.
Best ska song that teaches you how to do a dance of the year
Puts me to sleep (in a good/cozy way).
The drums on this thing.
Great opener. It?s too bad the rest of the album relied on features and really wasn?t
|73||Queens Of The Stone Age|
Keep Your Eyes Peeled
World Of Pleasure
Super catchy powerpop song on super catchy powerpop album. New band with
members of Marked Men and Mind Spiders.
Hole In The Hill
The Repos put out so much material this year. This one?s off a 7? single on
Cowabunga Records I think.
|76||The Rival Mob|
Sounds like tough-guy hardcore, bashes some tough-guy hardcore people.
The Shoot Out
Sick riffs, Wally?s vocals are on point.
Give It All To Me
My favorite Australian band. Their LP was awesome. Really hope they put out more
than a single next year.
|79||Run The Jewels|
Killer Mike kills. Gr8/unique production too.
This album doesn?t get any better than this. Glad a post-punk album got some
attention this year.
Very modern, bouncy beat, good hook, and Kendrick Lamar?s verse is great.
The Depths Of Me
Yeah, really dorky pop-punk, whatever.
|83||The Story So Far|
Not in love with TSSF, but really dig this song.
The Three Of Us
Crazy, nasty punk rock ?n? roll from Montreal. Go check out the music video for this one.
|86||Their / They?re / There|
Their / They?re / Thereapy
Be A Toy
The guitar tones on this EP are awesome.
|88||Toro Y Moi|
So Many Details
Yo, way chill, way bumpy.
I really wish this song was longer except maybe not??? The female vocals at the end
|90||Tyler, The Creator|
Great NY-sounding rap track from Tyler. Shows him growing up a little (even if the
story is fake).
Indigoism is an awesome mixtape. Issa?s flow on this thing is crazy.
Good 4 It
Seeing Wallpaper. at Warped Tour with a bunch of my friends was the best. A song
Brown Sugar/Brown Liquor
Favorite Toronto punk track of the year. Slower than all their other songs but twice as
Sail To The Sun
Life sux, sail 2 sun
|95||Willis Earl Beal|
Too Dry To Cry
Real unique/bluesy shit. Thanks Nardwuar!
|96||The Wonder Years|
|97||Worlds Scariest Police Chases|
You?re Only Punk Once
Makes plenty of clever jokes about punk rockers while playing like them.
Courage In The Big Stinkin? City (Dragsville)
Weird chill ambient ghost jazz
Grit Your Teeth
Fresh new punk from France. Exciting!!
Lightsaber // Saviour
