best 0f 2015 :: Favorite Songs

And now here is THE list, the GIMME TINNITUS favorite songs of 2015 (100+!). Give it a little time to load up. Maybe go get a snack. Soak it in, and stream away. The list is in alphabetical order by artist name, so scroll through the whole dame thing! Do not miss out on Zs or YVETTE. That would be dumb (ok?). I think most of the songs here are from 2015 but there are some reissues mixed in, so check that older stuff out. Those who do not know their history are condemned to not recognize it when newer bands are ripping someone off. Oh and leave a comment if I missed something (which of course I did).

Looking forward to 2016!

This was a great year for music.

If you like what you see/hear you should probably head over to your local independent record store and purchase some vinyl or tapes or maybe a CD or better yet buy directly from the band next time you go out to a show. If you just want the 0s and 1s, maybe head over to eMusic or Midheaven or Bandcamp or your favorite digital music store.

You can check out the rest of the GIMME TINNITUS “best of” coverage using the “best of” category link.

Remember there’s always lots to stream at the GIMME TINNITUS Soundcloud or the GT Youtubes, and also at the GT Tumblr too.
