Songs of the Year: 1998

Two words for you: Godzilla Soundtrack



Well, it’s 1998.


Just kidding, the Godzilla Soundtrack was released this year! Featuring new songs from Rage Against the Machine, Fuzzbubble, Jamiroquai, Ben Folds, Silverchair and more, Godzilla the Soundtrack was by far the best thing about 1998. You can skip the Puff Daddy + Jimmy Page “Come With Me” debacle though.

THE RULES: It’s a simple concept. We pick five of our favorite songs that made the Billboard Top 100 (established in 1958) during any time that year. We also select five “wildcards” that can be any songs released as a single or on an album or EP that year. Finally, we also pick our “worst” song of the year, just for fun.

We started in 1958 and we’re going until we run out of years.

Standings So Far …

Joe’s back in the winners seat as he takes the battle of Radiohead. Karma Police edged out Let Down, Kramzer’s pick, by fewer than 10 votes. It must be said, however, that Paranoid Android was by far the most picked in our comments section. Jason finished a distant, distant third. This year we have one well known song going up against two extremely well known artists. Who will win?

Joe: 18
Jason: 15.5
Kramzer: 12.5
