TWEED'S Top 50 Songs of the Decade (2000-2009)

This was a decade of up’s and down’s in the world: politically, socially, and economically, but we have all already heard that before so let’s just focus on the music. The decade did bring some great music and it also brought us some pretty shitty music. In this decade I really started to broaden my musical horizons, although I first started to get into music in the mid to late 90’s in my early teenage years. Now, some of these songs may not be my favorites anymore and some of them still are, but the thing that all these songs have in common is that they all had an impact on me both personally and musically.
