10 Songs Turning 10 in 2018

December 27, 2017

2008 may have been the year of the financial crisis, but isn’t that a time when music swoops in to save us all (or at least lift our spirits)? Sounds about right.

So we’re throwing it back to 2008 just in time for the new year to show you which songs are turning 10 in 2018.

 

10. Slipknot “Psychosocial”

This song recently made a comeback in Slipknot’s Day of the Gusano documentary which was released this fall.

 

9. Nickelback “Gotta Be Somebody”

‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares, and if anyone knows that, it’s Nickelback.

 

8. Scott Weiland “Tangle With Your Mind”

“Tangle With Your Mind” was featured on Weiland’s second solo album, Happy in Galoshes, and while the track has an upbeat feel, its lyrics reveal the sadness of navigating a breakup.

 

7. Disturbed “Indestructible”

The title track off Disturbed’s fourth studio album went on to become one of the band’s most well-known songs.

 

6. Judas Priest “Nostradamus”

Remember Judas Priest’s concept album? Here’s the title track.

 

5. Rise Against “Re-Education (Through Labor)”

“Re-Education (Through Labor)” was featured on one of the band’s most successful albums, Appeal to Reason, and its video was released on the same day as the song.

 

4. Nine Inch Nails “Discipline”

While The Slip was originally intended to be an EP, a burst of creativity resulted in a full-length album, and this is one of its byproducts.

 

3. Guns N’ Roses “I.R.S.”

One of the better songs on Chinese Democracy and easily the catchiest.

 

2. Metallica “The Day That Never Comes”

The first single off Death Magnetic brought the band back to basics.

 

1. AC/DC “Rock N Roll Train”

The Black Ice track was so successful that it’s one of the few newer songs to make it onto the band's current setlists.

 

BONUS: Foo Fighters “Let It Die”

Technically this one was released in 2007, but it was on the charts in 2008. So we’re counting it.

 

What do you think? Feel old yet?
