OT: Music - Best of 2009


I realized the other day that I had never made a FanPost on this site. I guess after all the times I've made fun of other posters' horrid FP's, it's time for me to throw my hat in the ring and get made fun of as well.

 

2009 was a fantastic year for music, and now that school is out for me, I actually had some time to craft together a top 20 to share with LSB and the internets. Keep in mind that I lean towards heavier and more experimental music, but there's something for everyone to enjoy in my list. I'd also love to see what everyone else listened to this year, so we can all learn who has the best and worst music on this board, and make fun of them accordingly. On to the selections:
