Rolling Stone has updated their 500 greatest songs of all time list for the first time in 17 years.
They say, “Nearly 4,000 songs received votes. Where the 2004 version of the list was dominated by early rock and soul, the new edition contains more hip-hop, modern country, indie rock, Latin pop, reggae, and R&B. More than half the songs here — 254 in all — weren’t present on the old list, including a third of the Top 100. The result is a more expansive, inclusive vision of pop, music that keeps rewriting its history with every beat.”
But did they nail it? I don’t see a single Foo Fighters song on the list. They were just named global icons (granted by the MTV VMAs which is the only “music” related thing MTV does anymore, love that Dave Grohl pointed that out while accepting the award on Sunday) but they were also just inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! And Beck’s Loser is #458?! Cheap Trick’s ‘Surrender’ is 356?! What would you pick for the #1 greatest song of all time? Tweet me: Lauren
