SLS22 Unveiled


I came very close to ending SLS at #21.  2009 has seemed like a abnormally weak year for music.  I read the "too cool for school" blogs, sampled Merriweather Post Pavilion and other such "it" albums, and was left underwhelmed.  Every other year of this decade produced an album that got me jazzed, but this year the closest I came to getting really excited about an album was Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.

But I decided to keep SLS going.  2010 may be a better year for music, and I'd like the franchise to be alive to reap the benefits.  Here's the final song list for SLS22.  For an SLS primer, go here.

  1. Foo Fighters - Wheels
  2. The Rural Alberta Advantage - Don't Haunt This Place
  3. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Heads Will Roll
  4. Them Crooked Vultures - New Fang
  5. Phoenix - 1901
  6. Metric - Sick Muse
  7. Death Cab For Cutie - Meet Me On The Equinox
  8. Weezer - (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To
  9. Silversun Pickups - Substitution
  10. Alice in Chains - Check My Brain
  11. Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker - Anti-Venom
  12. Billy Talent - Devil On My Shoulder
  13. Kings of Leon - Notion
  14. Pearl Jam - The Fixer
  15. Arkells - The Ballad of Hugo Chavez
  16. Alexisonfire - Young Cardinals
  17. Arctic Monkeys - Crying Lightning
  18. The Dead Weather - Treat Me Like Your Mother
  19. The Stills - I'm With You
  20. Green Day - 21 Guns

I just updated The Complete SLS Database. Look for SLS23 in late June, 2010.
