Most Listened To Songs Of 2010

1 Enter Shikari – The Jester 21 : From their 2009 album Common Dreads, The Jester is a bouncy as buggery, completely mental guitar and keyboard laden chunk of rave metal.

1 Street Sweeper Social Club – The New Fuck You 21 : Because I still havn't grown up enough to love shouting the F word to good music, and Tom Morello's guitar work here is his best since RATM.


3 The Unthanks – Here's The Tender Coming 20 : The beautiful and sad title track to The Unthanks first album (being the Unthank sisters third album in all)

4 Sleigh Bells – Tell 'Em 19 : Distorted guitars and clattering drum machines, Sleigh Bells were a breath of fuzzed up, manic fresh air.

5 The Naked Heroes – Sheila 18 : It's on alright song, I don't know why I listened to this so much.

5 The Unthanks – The Testimony Of Patience Kershaw 18 : Another epic folk song from Here's The Tender Coming
5 Crippled Black Phoenix – Let Me Put My Love Into You 18 : CBP covered AC/DC's classic for Classic Rock magazine's Back In Black Redux, slowed it down even further, swapped out the male lead for female vocals and made a really terrific

8 The Buff Medways – Medway Wheelers 17 : Quirky number about a post war motorbike club.

8 The Buff Medways – I'm Glad I'm Not Like David Wise 17 : We've all known a David Wise at school, Billy Childish recounts his encounters with the bully.

8 The Glitterati – Fucks Me Up 17 : Good fun, down and dirty rock and roll from the Leeds boys debut album.

8 The Naked Heroes – 99 Diamond 17 : You can get The Naked Heroes debut lp free on Last.fm, they are a 2 piece a la The White Stripes and this simple but rumbling chant and response number is the best on the album.
