The Devil's Music Wet Dream

As if you needed another good reason to listen to WOXY Vintage, they've now released the Modern Rock 500 list. This is a like a wet dream for me with my musical tastes. Admittedly, some of these bands I wasn't much into but I do plan on going back and listening to these tunes. I've only listed the Top 150, so there are another 350 for you to explore and love .... kinda like that first time you decided to rub one out ......

An okay list, some duffers on there but mostly good stuff, but...

No Rage Against the Machine? What Gives? How can Outkast and Franz F***ing Ferdinand get on the list but not Killing in the Name, one of the greatest rock songs ever recorded????

Also, disappointed with the Bowie choices, went for the rather the obvious ones rather than the ones a fan would go for.

Alan-
I was surprised with no Rage up there. I think the list has a few too many modern tunes myself (although I dig Modest Mouse, the songs they picked only came out in the past year or so).
