Every bloody year I do this and every bloody year I promise I wouldn’t. But I end up doing it. Man, I suck.

So I throw my favorite tracks in a playlist throughout the year. This year 298 songs made it. I keep saying (to myself) that month by month I’m going to put them in order. Make this time of year easy. But no…I never do. Reviewing 300 songs takes a very long time. I’m sure mistakes were made and songs forgotten but still this is basically in order and correct. Basically. If you asked me tomorrow I might have the songs in slightly different order. Maybe. Either way…Enjoy.

Please support these bands…or we wouldn’t have bands like this around to support. Buy an album, or a ticket to a show, or a tee shirt, or…something from them. Thank you.

If there are any bands/managers/labels etc that want their music removed (for any reason) please contact me (chris at allthingsnext dot com) and I’ll promptly remove it. Thank you, bands, for making music. Thank you for making my life better because of the music you make. I am a passionate music consumer as are my listeners. If you think NEXT streaming music is bad please think it over again. I am a music maker advocate.

WARNING may contain bad words. Or may not. Depends.
