As it enters its eighth decade of existence, rock still shows plenty of vitality. Its almost endless web of subgenres reaches from the tiniest of clubs to the largest of stadiums, and this playlist covers as many highlights as possible from its vast sonic terrain.
The format is simple: once we’re into February tracks from the the past month will feature at the beginning of the playlist before turning to highlights from the rest of the year (in no particular order). If you’d like to hear the genre’s most recent gems, check out the first five to ten tracks. If you want to explore the year as a whole, simply hit that shuffle button, sit back, and enjoy!
New additions will be included on a monthly basis. If there’s a track that you think is the pinnacle of rock music this year but isn’t featured here, please don’t hesitate to let me know about it at email@example.com.
WARNING: All tracks and their accompanying videos are completely uncensored. A number of them contain explicit language that is unsuitable for children, NSFW topics and images, discussions of potentially triggering subjects, and/or political commentary that may offend.
