2005. Bjork's Drawing Restraint 9 was weird. Green Day's When September Ends was played everywhere. So was Madonna's Hung Up song, which featured a total rip from an ABBA song. However, concert highlights for me this year included Alice Cooper (awesome), Moby (again), and Breaking Benjamin! Not bad at all.

Google Boy Hits Car
2. Boy Hits Car - The Passage (3/28/2005)
