Your Top 30 Modern Rock Song List for 2007

My friend is DJ’ing a New Year’s party this year. It’s at a bar where most of the Jukebox music being played is modern rock. He’s not into that kind of music, so he asked me for a Top 30 of 2007 song list. Here’s what I came up with…feel free to post yours: (I limited it to 1 song per artist)

**AFI **The Missing Frame
**Against Me **Thrash Unreal
Blaqk Audio Stiff Kittens
Decemberists, The O Valencia
Fall Out Boy This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race
Fiction Plane Two Sisters
Finger Eleven Paralyzer
Foo Fighters The Pretender
Fratellis, The Flathead
Gahan, David Kingdom
Guster Satellite
Hives, The Tick Tick Boom
Incubus Anna Molly
Jimmy Eat World Big Casino
Linkin Park Bleed It Out
Modest Mouse Dashboard
Muse Starlight
Mute Math Typical
Papa Roach Forever
Puddle of Mudd Psycho
Raconteurs, The Steady As She Goes
Shins, The Phantom Limb
Shiny Toy Guns Le Disko
Silverchair Straight Lines
Silversun Pickups Lazy Eye
Three Days Grace Pain
Vedder, Eddie Hard Sun
VHS or Beta Can’t Believe a Single Word
White Stripes Icky Thump
Yorn, Pete Undercover

It occurs to me that I didn’t download a lot of music from 2007. I don’t think I have 30 Modern (or what we used to call “Alternative”) rock songs that aren’t already in your list.

I guess I’ll add the following:

Fall Out Boy - Thnks fr the mmrs
Linkin Park - What I’ve Done
Matchbox Twenty - How Far We’ve Come
Smashing Pumpkins - Tarantula

I’d go with “Dig” for Incubus over “Anna Molly.” And a little googling lists “Anna Molly” as a 2006 release anyway.

As for a full top 30 list, that might take a while but it would have a lot of overlap with your list.

I figured some of these might have release dates prior to 2007. But, I think these songs were most popular in 2007, just based on memory.
