Just a quick glance at the top 50 reveals it is sheer, tasteless stupidity.

Some really weird picks in there. Some of the songs aren't even the best song by that particular artist.

Hey Ya and Get Yer Freak On over A Day In The Life. Those selections are equivalent to a video of a 3rd World tourist squatting and evacuating her bowels of yellowy-brown diarrhea in a public place. CMB knows these unfortunate real life incidents well. He's an expert on public spray incidents.

As you'd expect, they're tryin to be edgy by juxtaposing Get Your Freak on with Imagine and What's Goin' On.

They did it intentionally for click bait.

Worst list I have ever seen but I think that was the idea.

Royals by Lorde is top 30 all time?

Strawberry Fields is also the best Beatles song according to this list.

Well, thanks to this and Rolling Stone, I've now heard Dancing on My Own, exactly once. Not bad and might even crack my Top 50,000.

The original (2004) list

Songs on new list removed from old list:

With over half of the list including new additions, that means some notable ones had to be removed. "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" by The Righteous Brothers had the highest ranking in 2004 (No. 34) but didn't make it in on the 2021 list. Here are other songs that didn't make the cut, and what they ranked in 2004:

"When a Man Loves a Woman" by Percy Sledge, No. 54

"Long Tall Sally" by Little Richard, No. 56

"Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" by Jerry Lee Lewis, No. 61

"For What It's Worth (Stop, Hey What's That Sound)" by Buffalo Springfield, No. 63

"The Times They Are A-Changin'" by Bob Dylan, No. 59

"Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash, No. 164

"Do you Believe in Magic" by The Lovin' Spoonful, No. 216

"Highway to Hell" by AC/DC, No. 254

"Walk This Way" by Run-DMC feat. Aerosmith, No. 287

"One Way or Another" by Blondie, No. 298

"We Will Rock You" by Queen, No. 330

"Personal Jesus" by Depeche Mode, No. 368

"Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, No. 398

"Piano Man" by Billy Joel, No. 421

"I Love Rock 'N Roll" by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, No. 484

#48 'Idioteque' is the best Radiohead song? This annoys me as someone who sort of loved them when i was shorter.

Pretty sure this was made by AI algorithm. Billie Jean #44? Nirvana too high, Fleetwood Mac wth? Beatles #15 is boring. #16 is a good song but they must be remembering the video to put it this high (if they did remember the video, it should be up near #1), #19 should hover near the top of the top, and then #50. And that's just the top 50. Plus most of what everyone else said here.

What kind of ridiculous list doesn’t have a single Taylor Swift song in the top 50?
