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.

Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor says that the band’s next project is not only starting to look like a concept album, but that it may be a double album as well. A concept double album?
Stone Sour looks to join the ranks of bands like Smashing Pumpkins and Coheed and Cambria as they gear up to release a two-disc concept album. In a recent interview Corey Taylor told Artisan News about Stone Sour’s upcoming record:
“The thing I can say is that it’s like little bits and pieces of the first three albums, but it’s very dark. I’ve got a story…it’s almost a concept album that I’m writing right now — and it might turn into a double album.There’s a lot of really good material that we’re all kinda coming up with and I’m really excited to get in to the studio and see what happens.”
Korn had to put the breaks on the release of their dubstep EP a few months ago, and it may have been one of the best decisions they’ve ever made. After the success of the single ‘Get Up’, there is a renewed sense of interest in the band that wasn’t quite there during the release of their last album ‘Korn III: Remember Who You Are’. The project, now known as ‘The Path to Totality’, was expanded into a full-length album which is scheduled for release November 15th.
The band has also contributed the theme song, which at this point has no title, to the next installment in the popular video game franchise — Silent Hill.
Somewhat shockingly, R.E.M. has just revealed that they are breaking up after over 30 years of making music together.
The following statement was posted on the band’s website yesterday:
“To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening. R.E.M.”
