- Deftones are about 43 spots too low on this list.
- Where's Sigur Ros?
- I know it isn't their bread and butter, but too bad Spin doesn't give heavier music an equal chance here. The Chariot and Every Time I Die put out both intelligent and fantastic works this year that are both worthy of any year-end best-of list.
God forbid a magazine that doesn't particularly cover punk music too often include the Menzingers...it's geared towards their audience. 75% of Spin's readers probably haven't even heard of the Menzingers.
