top 40 singles of 2005

It's that time again! Here are what I think are the unbeatable singles of 2005.

[Ed note. All release date determinations are based on the UK record industry. These are all properly released singles that were sold separately from/in addition to an album or compilation between January 1 and December 31, 2004 in the UK. The U.S. is fucked up with its release dates and they don't really release proper singles anymore. Top Dance Tracks/Remixes will be posted on Wednesday, December 21, 2004. Top Albums will be posted on Wednesday, December 28, 2004.]

i can pretty much say that i can't listen to most of those bands and the closest band in that list that i listen to is FFAF but they annoy me since i have been unlucky to have seem them live 3 times and everytime they have just been gawd awful
perhaps you could post a list of your year in review favourites to the group...
the post was ment not to be a arguement starter, everyone has different taste and that is fair to them, plus i don't really keep up with the charts or bands like that

if i was to list albums or bands i have listened to alot over the past year it would be alot but the main ones are, Coheed and Cambria, Finch, Autopilot Off, Hundred Reasons, This Is Menace, Melt Banana, Institute, KMFDM, Millencolin, Bad Religion, Rise Against, The Lucky Nine, Therapy?, Nine Inch Nails, The Used, The Prodigy, and Mad Capsule Markets
no worries

I only intend my list to be a conversation starter anyways. I always like to see other people's lists to get music recommendations and see what people who have differing tastes have in common. FFAF and Therapy? would be two common interests between us. But I haven't seen a Therapy? album in ages. :(
well the last theraphy? album to come out was Never Apologise Never Explain at the end of last year which is a good album but hopefully some more new material soon.

and i was ment to go see This Is Menace on sunday in London but i can't anymore and the singer from FFAF did a track with them and it is the only song which he sings on that i can't listen to since it sounds more different
and i mean can listen to even, not can't
That's depressing (or not) - I know four of these songs (I know OF several of the bands, mind you).

Maybe I should compile my fave 7" (singles) of the year.
