Brought To You By The Michigan Of Aviation And Technology, Aquafina and McDonald's. No Really.
Remember how I mentioned the rock station in Windsor, the one I grew up listening to, was counting down the 89 most important tracks of 2005? No? Well here it is anyway. I love that what basically started as "stuff that sounds like it was probably made in Seattle" now looks something like this:

No Smashing Pumpkins, but somehow we still get 311, Garbage and three (3!) Nine Inch Nails songs. Plus about 16 tracks from U2.

I'm strangely happy to see the Hot Hot Heat content (they don't generally get their due), but are you honestly going to tell me there's anyone in the entire world who enjoys listening to both Arcade Fire and Papa Roach? Or Nickelback and Death Cab for Cutie? Who are these people? Are they just way more open-minded than basically anyone I've ever known?

P.S. k-os? Really? On that list?

(All right. No more italics. Promise.)
