Nice to see Celebration Rock at #3. Didn't like (or didn't listen to) pretty much everything else on the list though.

Glad Deftones made the cut, but I completely disagree with Niki Minaj being on there at all. If anything this list just makes me want to finally listen to Kendrick Lamar and Japandroids.

Looks like there are a few albums I missed out on in 2012.

Cue another debate on how Some Nights is overrated/underrated...

It's 50th in a pretty popular, if not slightly irrelevant, music publication. That ain't nothing to argue with about outside of the AP bubble. If anything, I'd actually like to see AP highlight the list a bit more other than saying, "fun. is 50th. Carry on." Not a big fan of that mentality.

This is the first list Ive seen fun. on. Cool of Spin not to be too pretentious and include it.

As with most end of the year lists ... absolutely no recognition of "scene / underground" music. If I don't see mewithoutYou or The Menzingers mentioned than the entire list immediately looses its credibility with me.

Sidebar: Glad Japandroids are getting the recognition they deserve
