MOST SUPRISING: “Up Down (Do This All Day)” by T-Pain, B.o.B.
WHAT'S MISSING? Anything by My Chemical Romance—Rabab Al-Sharif, Director Of Content


MOST SURPRISING: Can't say I'm surprised—these songs are on my playlists even today! Favorites from the rest of the playlist include: “Goodnight Moon” by Go Radio, “Crawling Towards The Sun” by the Hush Sound and “About A Girl” by the Academy Is… Not-so-surprising surprises include: “Tipsy” by J-Kwon, “Birthday Sex” by Jeremih,” “Hips Don't Lie” by Shakira.—Kika Chatterjee, News Writer

MOST SURPRISING: Honestly, I'm not surprised by any of this. I wish I could say I was surprised to see the Millionaires, but I'm really not surprised at all…
WHAT'S MISSING? Pierce The Veil, for sure. And as embarrassing as it might be to admit… Taylor Swift. What can I say, I was a T-Swift fan? And much more from the Maine and A Rocket To The Moon.—Maggie Dickman, Editorial Assistant

MOST SURPRISING: Good Charlotte (Maybe I had a moment I don’t remember where I jammed to that song?)
WHAT'S MISSING? “The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot” by Brand New—Paige Owens, Digital Marketing Coordinator

MOST SURPRISING: “Inside Out” by Eve 6 — like what?—Kristine Cannon, Digital Content Editor

WHAT'S MISSING? “The Great Escape” by Boys Like Girls. No shame in being a fan girl—they led to a tiny band called All Time Low.—Shelbey Surgent, Senior Designer

MOST SURPRISING: The list is pretty accurate, except there should be a WHOLE LOT more Queens of the Stone Age and Red Hot Chili Peppers!—Brittany Vincent, News Writer

MOST SURPRISING: This is disgusting…—Sara DeWeese, Merchandise Assistant

Amber Funk, Merchandise Manager

Philip Trapp, News Writer

Stevie James, Assistant Merchandise Manager
