Class of 2000

Our favourite songs. One per year.


Side A
(curated by Jon)

1. Radiohead – "The National Anthem"

It was between this and "Bye Bye Bye."

To honour "The National Anthem" is to honour its sublime bass riff, which Thom Yorke reportedly composed at age 16.

Like the melodic hook of Club Nouveau's "Why You Treat Me So Bad," the force is strong in said bass riff, and Radiohead sounds intent on testing it.

"Can you handle this?" the band asks, before issuing a cacophonous assault of brass free-jazz, wailing and ondes Martenotics.

"Effortlessly," the bass riff replies. "Is that all you got?"

Ben: Good call, but I'm going to have to side with the p-dorks.


Side B
(curated by DJ Ben)

1. Outkast – "B.O.B."

"Bombs Over Baghdad" is one of my favorite songs ever. I've spent hours debating to myself whose verse is better. For years, I was with Andre, but in the last six months, I made the switch to Big Boi.

Jon: "B.O.B" is half a good song. Its verse-less second half is largely forgettable.
