According to this list, Muse was responsible for almost 10% of the best songs in the past decade. Somehow I find this hard to believe. Alright, I find it downright absurd.

I can't stand lists like this that expect to be taken seriously when it's just the same bands over and over. Anything that claims to be a top list albums or songs, should not have one band comprising more than a few select spots. There may be a VERY small amount of exceptions to this.

It all comes down to who votes. And trend-following indie fans ALWAYS vote.

"Rebellion (Lies)" is the only one that deserves to be on there, IMO. And I like that first Arctic Monkeys album, but best of the decade? Um, no.

so this isnt really a list of "best" songs, but rather "most popular songs with the XFM website userbase". lists where people vote are meaningless, for the list to be credible we need real music critics to judge them based on well reasoned arguments.
