The Top 200 Songs of 2011 – 150-101

149. Cass McCombs – County Line

From the maniacal laughter to the thumping stomp of that chorus to those wailing guitars, Joy Formidable claim the throne as the loudest new band of 2011.

146. YACHT – Dystopia

I also do it to introduce you cool cats to tunes you may have missed independently.
