41 "Just Fine"
Mary J. Blige

The queen of hip-hop soul goes disco, with an electro-bounce sound rooted in early-1980s club music.

42 "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race"
Fall Out Boy

43 "Us Placers"

44 "Bleed It Out"
Linkin Park

Their simplest song ever, and their greatest — Brad Delson jumps out of the speakers with one monster riff; LP's vocal tag team of Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda sound more pissed off than ever.
