THE B4 ALTERNATIVE’S TOP 30 SONGS OF 2011
In 2011 we saw a ton of CD’s arrive on the shelves at the various locations you would take a gander to find new music. This is a list of the BEST in my opinion. I’m not going by album titles; rather I went with the best 30 songs that came out this year, and they may or may not have had major radio play. The amount of major radio play did not factor into my list at all. It’s a list of top 30 songs that I based off of how enjoyable the song was to myself.
Again, this is all strictly in my opinion. It didn’t matter if it was played a billion times on the radio, or if it got one spin on the air. It didn’t matter if it was the number one song on iTunes, or if it didn’t even get released on iTunes (of course these days, if you’re not releasing your music on iTunes, you’re either just plain stupid or have been living under a rock for the past decade.). It’s just simply the top 30 songs that stood out to me from the past year.

Nickelback have engaged in a Twitter way with Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Peter Moylan according to Loudwire.
Moylan cast the first stone after seeing Foo Fighters live in Melbourne, Australia. Impressed by Foos frontman Dave Grohl, Moylan tweeted — "Note to @nickelback please attend a @foofighters concert. That's how's it should be done Chad."
Nickelback went for the throat with their reply to the Moylan, referencing fellow Braves relief pitcher and 2011 National League Rookie of the Year, Craig Kimbrel – "@PeterMoylan Foos are killer for sure. We're doing just fine, too, thanks. ? for you Pete, is watching Kimbrel better from the bench or on TV? … p.s. happy birthday…"
