#125 - The Avalanches "Since I Left You" - The title track of one of the most critically-acclaimed albums of the last 10 years.
#124 - Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Heads Will Roll" - Three members, three Yeahs, but there's only one Karen O.
#123 - New Radicals "You Get What You Give" - The feel good song of that year. Something about the mid-to-late '90s and alternative rock music that just felt so good.
#122 Vampire Weekend "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" - The feel good song of the year, 10 years later.
#121 Alicia Keys "No One" - Alicia Keys wins Grammys and she belts out hits. This was the best one not featuring Jay-Z.
#120 The Streets "It Was Supposed to Be Easy" - Multiple songs from The Streets were debated, but It Was Supposed to be Easy just made the most sense. This song made Brit Rap seem ever-so-smooth, and easy.
#119 The Knife "Heartbeats" - Like The Avalanche, this international duo is not widely regarded outside of music aficionado circles, but is well respected with critics and record store snobs alike.
#118 Elliot Smith "Alameda" - Even more important than this one song, was Smith's life and death that ended far too soon in 2003.
#117 The Rapture "House of Jealous Lovers" - Other songs on this list are jealous of how good this song is.
#116 The Postal Service "Such Great Heights" - How many times have you heard this song? Ask the ad guys how many viewers they've had.
#115 System of a Down "Toxicity" - Probably the hardest song on the entire list and that's about all we had room for. Sevendust would've made the list if it was Top 200.
#114 The Roots feat. Erykah Badu & Eve "You Got Me" - Erykah Badu didn't make the list solo, but she gets a guest appearance thanks to this track.
#113 The Dears "Lost in the Plot" - Ahhh, The Dears. One of those bands that puts out super quality material, but doesn't get the fan recognition of bands like Wilco and TV on the Radio.
#112 The xx "Crystalized" - The most stylish band of the last decade just so happen to put out one of the most important debut albums of the decade as well.
#111 Natalie Imbruglia "Torn" - (No Pun Intended, but) I'm torn as to whether or not this song is where my love of Natalie Portman - you know, tiny brunette girls with interesting demeanors - got started. Probably.
#110 Federico Aubele "Postales" - Maria Jose is a great track too, but Postales has just a little more flavor to it.
#109 The Wallflowers "One Headlight" - Probably the most radio friendly song on the entire list and I can't say I mind.
#108 Fatboy Slim "The Rockafeller Skank" - One of the pioneers of MTV's electro-dance phase.
#107 Elbow "The Birds" - "Who are these guys?" Just listen.
#106 Kid Cudi "Day'n'Nite" - One of the biggest songs of 2008 and the song that pushed him ahead of more talented rappers that would follow in 2009-2011 a la Drake, Curren$y, J-Cole.
#105 Live "Turn My Head" - Great great song, but they never did live up to early descriptions as "the next R.E.M."
#104 Linked Park "In The End" - Hate all you want, but Linkin Park was a hit machine. Part of the reason Jay-Z blessed them with an album.
#103 Sigur Ros "Saeglopur" - The best song here during a live show you won't forget.
#102 Black Star "Definition" - One of the seminal hip-hop songs after the Tribe Called Quest era.
#101 U2 "Beautiful Day" - Not a big U2 fan, admittedly. But damnit if this song isn't well put together.
