Best songs of 2014

I know, 2014 isn’t over yet, but the remaining albums slated to be released are not my type. 2014 proved to be a good year for rock music in terms of the quality of the songs, but their sales have tanked. Even AC/DC, the worlds biggest and best rock band, has struggled to sell more than 200,000 in their debut week, compared to the nearly 800,000 in 2008.

Here is my list of the best 20 songs of 2014. I know that some bands are on here multiple times, but most of the music these days is just the same formulaic garbage. These songs have shined through the yuck and gunk and perhaps hold some promise for a future of music without autotune and terrible lyrics.

20. “Take Out the Gunman” – Chevelle

19. “World on Fire” – Slash ft. Myles Kennedy

18. “Midnight Oil” – California Breed

17. “Time For Me to Stop” – Fuel

16. “Crossfire” – Judas Priest

15. “Puppet Strings” – Fuel

Sorry for the badly recorded live version.

14. “Rock or Bust” – AC/DC

13. “Give Me a Love” – Sixx A.M.

12. “Something for Nothing” – Foo Fighters

11. “Sweet Tea” – California Breed

10. “Let’s Go” – Sixx A.M.

09. “Miss Adventure” – AC/DC

If this video stops working, its because YouTube took it down for copyright.

08. “Chemical Rain” – California Breed

Sorry for the bad recording. Its the only one on YouTube.

07. “Party Like Tomorrow is the End of the World” – Steel Panther

06. “F****ing My Heart in the A**” – Steel Panther

Explicit lyrics.

05. “Beginning of the End” – Judas Priest

04. “Sweet Candy” – AC/DC

If this video stops working, YouTube removed it for copyright.

03. “Pussywhipped” – Steel Panther

Explicit lyrics.

02. “Baptism By Fire” – AC/DC

If this video stops working, YouTube removed it for copyright.

01. “Halls of Valhalla” – Judas Priest

4:20 to 4:39 is pure epicness. It just shows the abilities of Rob Halford at his age. When he did it live in Tacoma he did it perfectly and I was amazed.
