This will probably be a list of songs that have videos for them. I personally feel Night of the Living Base Heads or Rebel Without a Pause is better than Fight The Power.

Yeah, the list def was a little...off. But, I'm sure part of it was because the WWW community was asked to vote online, instead of industry wonks.

Either way, I had my stereo that's connected to cable cranked as they played the soundtrack from my younger, single days!!!:-D
