One of the better lists imo, but still missing the absolute essential metal albums (of course).

I don't like how they repeat artists in the best songs part, but yeah "Kids" is majorly hip. And Frightened Rabbit is hot.

"22. Oasis, Dig Out Your Soul
23. Scarlett Johansson, Anywhere I Lay My Head"

Horrible lists for people who think what a band wears matters more than the sounds they make.

But hey, it's the NME.

A bit too British-oriented for mine. To be expected, but still.

boris's smile should have been up here. the new vines album could have made the list as well. meh, it just hasn't been a great year for music.

NME is really hyping up MGMT...

These lists are a JOKE, you can just tell that all the decisions for placing are completely arbitrary. Scarlett Johansson better than Coldplay?!?!
3 songs in the top five by the SAME BAND?!?!
Hooray for CAPITAL LETTERS
