However, bands who are lucky enough to make the big year-end lists get a significant jump in popularity and chart position. It can be one of the best things to generate sales during the holiday season and into the new year. This playlist is a good example -- you'll find many of the songs in this list come from albums that appeared consistently on best of 2011 lists.
These songs are the current top ten rock tracks according to Billboard magazine, the de facto chart maker in the music business. Two of the bands here made my year end list, while a couple of them I wouldn't put in my collection if I were paid to do so. As for the others, well... I think I'll check them out right now.
