SLS11 Shortlist

SLS11 ShortlistIt's June, and that means we'll soon be making the final decision on songs that will comprise SLS11. SLS stands for Smells Like Sour and every six months we "release" the latest version which consists of 80 minutes of what we deem to be the best music released in the previous six months. No artist can be represented more than once on each SLS and we "release" the compilation just before Christmas and Canada Day. We take SLS pretty seriously around here and Mark and I even created an SLS Homepage so the general public can submit and discuss potential songs. You can also peruse previous SLS "releases" and see what made the cut and what didn't.

With less than a month to go, here are the tunes that very well may make up SLS11, listed in alphabetical order. These songs, without a pause between the tracks, equal exactly 79:42. This morning, I realized I didn't include Metric's "Combat Baby" which is a tune that has grown on me quite a bit in recent weeks. As a result, something below will have to go to get us under 80:00.

  1. Audioslave - What You Are
  2. Beastie Boys - Ch-Check It Out
  3. Billy Talent - The Ex
  4. Brand New - Sic Transit Gloria...Glory Fades
  5. Broken Social Scene - Cause=Time
  6. Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out
  7. Incubus - Megalomaniac
  8. Jet - Cold Hard Bitch
  9. Korn - Y'all Want a Single
  10. Linkin Park - Lying From You
  11. Modest Mouse - Float On
  12. Probot - Shake Your Blood
  13. Slipknot - Duality
  14. Switchfoot - Meant To Live
  15. The Distillers - Beat Your Heart Out
  16. The Killers - Somebody Told Me
  17. The Offspring - Can't Get My Head Around You
  18. The Strokes - Reptilia
  19. The Tragically Hip - Vaccination Scar
  20. The Vines - Ride
  21. The White Stripes - I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself
  22. Velvet Revolver - Slither
  23. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps
