The Darkness
"Growing On Me"

There really isn't enough good-hearted, foxy rock in the world these days.

R. Kelly
"Feelin' On Yo Booty"

"Players wanna play, ballers wanna ball, rollers wanna roll" is rather zen. Stay till the end to find out how many syllables can be crammed into the word "booty."

"Change (In The House Of Flies)"

Recommend me some pretty metal! You know, the stuff that sounds like the Red House Painters with more piercings but doesn't sound like Staind.

"Everything Hits At Once"

There'd be a lot more indie rock on this list if most indie rock drummers didn't suck. And if most indie rock singer-songwriters didn't suck. And if most indie rock bands didn't avoid pointing out which song is the single.

"The Other Man"

Every great band should be given a country that cares. That way they'll keep changing, evolving and occasionally tossing off a near-perfect single that, if properly distributed and promoted, could be a Taco Bell perennial. Thank you, Canada, for making this their first top ten hit anywhere!
