A Decade Under the Influence Pt. 1 Songs


As the decade came to a close I realized more and more how much I was really a product of the 2000s and not really the 1990s. I was in 6th grade when the decade began and now I have one semester left of college. These have easily been some of my most impressionable years. My taste in music has grown from nu-metal butt rock to pop-punk to the list you will see below. I have been working on this list since July and it changes quite frequently, however I am publishing it. These are my 100 favorite songs of the past ten years at the present moment. I have never done a list of songs before and I know that there are many notable tracks missing, but these are the ones I have chosen to list. Sometimes #67 might be better then #66, but #1 will always be better then #100. Needless to say there is probably room for adjustment, but I do truly enjoy all of these tunes.
