2020 might have been a year none of us ever expected, where our lives hit a roadblock and the world stood still for far too long.
However, we have to pay tribute to the books, the tv, the art, and especially the music that made 2020 more bearable.
2020 saw the return of the Foo Fighters with Shame, Shame- that included an epic video that spawned from a dream that Dave Grohl had since he was a child. It was unlike any Foo's song that came before it, and I loved it.
We saw epic albums, (which will be discussed in a joint article with Dave) from some of my fave artists, like Ozzy Osbourne, Pvris, Bring me the Horizon. Yungblud, Nothing but Thieves, ACDC & Marilyn Manson.
It was also a year of discovery for me, finding some new artists to listen to during the year:
Grandson, Des Rocs, Inhaler, NOISY, Ayron Jones, Nothing,Nowhere
People have been saying for the last few years that Rock was dead, but this year has seen a resurgence to the genre, a blend of old and new, redefined with an eclectic sound that is exciting, invigorating and makes me excited for when the time comes to step inside a music venue to bear witness to live music again.
My 2020 Fave Songs were all released in 2020- I may have cheated a little and included Brainstorm by Artic Monkeys, but it's the live version and it was released in 2020.
Here are some of my fave songs of 2020:
Foo Fighters - Shame Shame
Ozzy Osbourne - Goodbye
Hayley Williams - Simmer
Bring Me The Horizon – Teardrops
Nothing But Thieves – Phobia
grandson – Identity
All Time Low - Monsters (feat. blackbear)
Billie Eilish - No Time To Die
Des Rocs - This is Our Life
PVRIS - Thank You (feat. RAYE)
