RADIOHEAD, GNARLS TOP STONE’S BEST RECORDS OF THE DECADE

Kings of Leon, MGMT, Phoenix, Bon Iver Among the Cutting-Edge Current Bands Getting Major Love From the Music Mag of Record
Radiohead’s Kid A is the album of the decade, and Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” is the noughties’ top song, according to the pundits at Rolling Stone, which has posted its Top 100s on rollingstone.com as the retrospective print issue hits newsstands.

A perusal of the albums list reveals that Radiohead is the only act to place four albums in the Top 100, while Kings of Leon and Kanye West snagged three apiece. Strangely, the only KOL longplayer that didn’t make the final cut is our favorite, 2007’s Because of the Times.

The most recent LPs on the list are MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular (’08) at #18, Lil Wayne’s The Carter III (’08) at #32, U2’s No Line on the Horizon (’09) at #36, KOL’s Only by the Night (’08) at #53, Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (’09) at #60, Kanye’s 808s and Heartbreak (’08) at #63 and Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago (’08) at #92.
