our time to be famous

"The original impetus for our 100 best songs 1977 - 2003 feature was VH1's recent special devoted to the best songs of the last 25 years. True, no list is ever perfect, but PopMatters wanted to broaden things out a bit and include some songs you may not have ever heard on VH1 or MTV. But then we weren't happy with the 25-year cut-off and felt it was just a little too arbitrary. So, instead, we polled our whole staff on the "best" songs since the ferocious sounds of Johnny Rotten and the boys and Joe Strummer and his gang blasted out of the UK and changed popular music forever."
