Albums of 2011
10 - Red Hot Chili Peppers - I‘m With YouFavorite Tracks: Just got the album a few days ago, no favorites yet. But so far they all sound great.
These guys can still rock. They‘ll always be a staple in my music collection.
9 - Foster the People - TorchesFavorite Tracks: Pumped Up Kicks
Another song that was over played on the radio and I bought the album out of curiosity of what the rest sounded like. It‘s an interesting album. I haven‘t listened to it enough to decide how much I like it.
8 - A Day to Remember - What Separates Me From YouFavorite Tracks: All I Want
I was surprised to hear this band played on the radio, they really took the level of rock down a few notches and sang some songs instead of just screaming their heads off. It was a nice surprise.
7 - The Dirty Heads - Any Port in a StormFavorite Tracks: Lay Me Down
This song was played constantly on the radio and I bought this album purely out of curiosity to see what the rest of it sounded like.
6 - Damion Suomi - self titled & Damion Suomi Needs a Little WaterFavorite Tracks: Sunday Morning; Mustard Seed; Save Your Ass
Discovered this band at a $5 show. What an awesome find! They have a unique sound, I‘m a fan.
5 - Neon Trees - HabitsFavorite Tracks: Sins of My Youth; Love & Affection; 1983
All of their songs are very energetic. It‘s a fun album to listen to.
4 - Mumford & Sons - Sigh No MoreFavorite Tracks: Little Lion Man, Thistle & Weeds, Roll Away Your Stone
The banjo is rad. One album that I can listen to from beginning to end over and over again and never get tired of it.
3 - Light for Fire - self titledFavorite Tracks: NY (By the Hand)
I really enjoyed this album and can‘t wait to hear more from them.
2 - My Chemical Romance - Danget Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous KilljoysFavorite Tracks: This whole album Rocks
One of my all time favorite bands, this album didn‘t disappoint and was a great follow up to The Black Parade.

She has an amazing voice
Honorable Mentions of 2011

Another album I discovered last year but didn‘t pay much attention to until recently. Apparently these guys have been around for awhile, I‘d like to check out their other albums. I‘ve been happy with what I‘ve heard so far.
3 - Paper Tongues - self titled
First heard them last year but didn‘t really listen to this album much until this year.
Singles of 2011
5 - Dragonforce - Through the Fire and the Flames
There‘s nothing like a little power metal to get you pumped up while on a long road trip.
4 - Keller Williams - Freeker by the Speaker
This one is on my top 10 most listened to songs on my iPod. Apparently, I listen to this one more than I realized, but it‘s an awesome song by a rad musician.
3 - Katy Perry - Peacock
When you‘re sitting at a red light and you catch the person next to you staring, this is a fun song to blast and watch their reactions.
2 - Damion Suomi - Sunday Morning
1 - Adele - Someone Like You
Most anticipated album of 2011
Keeping my Rogers crossed for a new album.
