Top 25 Songs of 2014

TOP25Another year has gone by but not without the great memories and appreciation of the amazing music that was released in 2014. The year started off with the “#Selfie” mania brought on by The Chainsmokers only to be replaced by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge mania that had every celebrity and next door neighbor pouring buckets of ice water on themselves. 2014 ended with new offerings by veterans Weezer and Foo Fighters, capping off a year that brought on strong new artists in the form of Sam Smith, Hozier, Milky Chance, Vance Joy and others. Our Top 25 songs of the year reflects the high quality of alternative, EDM and indie-rock artists who broke through in 2014. Check out the list!
