Hans' Decade Jams

Not ranked, only one entry per band or else there would be 20 National songs. Just some jams I dug this decade.
Celebration Rock

The House That Heaven Built - There have been at least 8 occasions where I thought this was the best song ever made. One of my all time pump up jams. Just perfection.
2Jason Isbell

Cover Me Up - This is probably in my top 50 songs of all time. The first time I heard it I was stunned. Absolutely gorgeous. Rips off The Beatles Norweigan Wood a little bit, but that's part of the appeal.
Koi No Yokan

Rosemary - IMO the best Deftones song. Immense , melodic, haunting. Great song to smash to.
4Gang of Youths
Go Farther in Lightness

The Deepest Sighs, The Frankest Shadows - The first time I heard this it literally stopped me in my tracks. Absolutely one of the best songs ever made. Kind of sounds like a cross between The National and Joshua Tree era U2. Great album about embracing life.
5Frightened Rabbit
The Winter of Mixed Drinks

The Loneliness and the Scream - I had an out of body experience when I saw this live. One of the most gorgeous songs ever. RIP so fucking hard.
6Judas Priest

No Surrender - If this had come out in 1982, it would be universally known as a top 100 all time metal song.
7The Ghost Inside

Chrono - Absolute clinic of melody. Soaring guitars. One of those songs you drive 800 mph to.
8The War on Drugs
Slave Ambient

Your Love is Calling My Name. 1987 Tom Petty meets, Unforgettable Fire era U2.
Hurry Up, We're Dreaming

Reunion - Most would go with the mighty Midnight City, but damn it, I like this one better. Major bonus points for blatantly ripping off Simple Minds - Don't Forget About Me
10Killer Mike
R.A.P. Music

Willie Burke Sherwood - One of Hip Hop's greatest ballads.
11Kendrick Lamar
good kid, m.A.A.d city

m.A.A.d. City - Kendrick's greatest song and a fucking banger for the ages.
12Janelle Monae
The ArchAndroid

Tightrope - Speaking of bangers, if this doesn't move you, you're absolutely dead. Big BOI is a boss guest.
13The National
High Violet

Terrible Love (ALTERNATE VERSION) - Almost impossible to pick just one National song, but at gunpoint, I resort to this. Has to be the alternate version, the album version has a fucking terrible mix.
14Drive-By Truckers
The Big To-Do

Birthday Boy - This is one of their worst albums, but Birthday Boy is one of their greatest songs. An infectious little ditty about a strapping young lad losing his virginity to a hooker.
15The Gaslight Anthem

45 - Hard to pick just one Gaslight song, but this is their biggest jam.
16The Weeknd
House of Balloons

The Morning - What a fucking jam this is. His best song IMO.
17Against Me!
Transgender Dysphoria Blues

Title Track - Fuck me if this isn't the catchiest song ever made.
18There Will Be Fireworks
The Dark, Dark Bright

River - The first time I heard this I was absolutely fucking floored. I probably listened to it 20 times back to back. This is simply an all-timer. Its a colossal shame they are unknown.
19Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Runaway - Have always hated him but even I have to admit this album is a hard 5. This is the best track here,

San Marcos - I can't really explain why I like this so much. It's not a popular pick, but fuck me if this isn't one of the prettiest damn things I've ever heard.
21Bon Iver
Bon Iver, Bon Iver

Perth - I realized this was his best song after seeing them live. Those drums.
22Ben Howard
I Forget Where We Were

Title Track - I actually just discovered this song two weeks ago and I cannot stop listening to it. One of the most gorgeous tracks ever.
23Jimmy Eat World
Integrity Blues

Sure and Certain - One of their greatest tracks.
Earth Rocker

Cyborg Bette - This one just jams harder than almost anything.
25The Menzingers
After the Party

Title Track - What an anthem this is. Quarter life crisis begins.
26Power Trip
Nightmare Logic

Executioner's Tax (Swing of the Axe) - Incredibly groovy and anthemic THRASH FUCKING METAL
27The Smith Street Band
Throw Me in the River

The Hunter

Stargasm - major unpopular choice, but this is their best album. Song is incredible.

Not Like This

Cutesy Monster Man - The definition of melodic anthemic punk. I'M GONNA SMASH MY FACE INTO THE GODDAMN RADIO
30Eagles Of Death Metal
Peace Love Death Metal

Flames Go Higher - The swagger groove, personified.

The Dangers of Standing Still

Hard Believer

Looking to Closely - If you like atmospheric piano ballads, look no further than this. Amazing song.
Death By Fire

Mesmerized by Fire - For all of you classic metal junkies.

Dreams - This album took over Sputnik when it dropped. One a nearly flawless record, this is my favorite. Close 2nd would be Enemies with Benefits.

David Comes to Life

Turn the Season - This is a major jam/anthem

Chlorine & Wine - You have to see these guys live. This song is gorgeous.
37Brand New
Science Fiction

Lit Me Up - The soundtrack to a serial killer driving around at night.
38Chelsea Wolfe
Hiss Spun

16 Psyche - One of the most beautifully haunting tracks ever conceived. I wouldn't kick her out of bed.
39Fair to Midland
Arrows and Anchors

Short Haired Tornado - On a record full of mega choruses, this is the biggest.
40Lana Del Rey
Norman Fucking Rockwell!

Title Track - Most would say Venice Bitch. Title track is better. More of a hook, awesome lyrics.
41Manchester Orchestra
A Black Mile to the Surface

The Maze - My favorite song by them. Just a gorgeous climber.
42Monster Truck
Sittin' Heavy

Don't Tell Me How to Live - Like a Canadian Clutch. Major dick dragging swaggering road house jam.
43The Roots

Kool On - Absolute earworm of a song. Must jam.
44Big Boi
Sir Lucious Left Foot

Back up Plan - Record is a near 5. This is the ultra banger.
45The Horrible Crowes

Behold the Hurricane - God I fucking love Brian Fallon. One of the best songs Springsteen never wrote.
The Heat

Relief - Mega stoner jam - Like if Clutch was fronted by Chris Cornell.
Take Me Apart

Title Track - Now THIS is a great one to smash to. Excellent slow jam.
48Kacey Musgraves
Golden Hour

Slow Burn - Needed a little folk on here. I don't like all of her work but this is a great song.
49Frank Ocean
channel ORANGE

Pyramids - Any decade list that doesn't have this is invalid.

52Crystal Castles

60Frank Turner
England Keep My Bones

Peggy Sang the Blues - this song just makes me feel fucking great.

64The Lumineers

Gale Song - Fucking gorgeous campfire song.

Coffee (Fucking) - You guessed it, great smashing track.
66Highly Suspect
Mister Asylum

Lydia - I used to be a huge fan. I actually added them to this very database and reviewed this record hard. Lydia was a monster radio rock song. They are terrible now, but this one still rules. Another mega jam off this record is Bloodfeather.
67Ryan Adams

Shiver & Shake - Extremely stark, naked ballad. You have to be in the right mood for it, but when you are, it hits hard,
