    I've been listening to a lot of different stuff recently, and right now it's been an even mixture of modern and classic rock. Here's my list of the best of the best ATM from both genres.

    1. Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven
    This song just gets better and better the more I hear it. "And as we wind on down the road, Our shadows taller than our soul" starts maybe the most powerful ending to any song I have ever heard. The buildup is amazing.

    2. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Wet Sand
    "Stadium Arcadium" shines in every light, and "Wet Sand" stands at the top as my favorite song on the album. Another great buildup with one of the catchiest and motivating choruses, ending with an intense, powerful solo, it doesn't get much better then this.

    3. The Shins - Girl On The Wing
    If you are a fan of alternative rock, just get this CD (Oh, Inverted World) and listen to this song. One of the best, most upbeat songs I've heard. Impossibly catchy.

    4. Muse - Starlight
    I am a huge Muse fan, and their new CD is on a whole new level. "Starlight", with its dark, heavy bass and great riffs comes out as one of the best songs on the CD. Check it out.

    5. The Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps
    This song's a classic, with the Beatles new style at its best. The end solo is killer.

    6. Modest Mouse - Satan in a Coffin
    Once you get used to the lead singers voice, it's addiction from then on. The banjo in this song gets me every time, I love it.

    7. Led Zeppelin - Tangerine
    Another classic. Love the guitar.

    8. The Vines - Spaceship
    "Vision Valley" is such an underrated CD, and it ends with a masterpiece. Spaceship, an epic closer, is such a beautiful song, with the last 5 minutes being instrumental.

    9. The Cranberries - Zombie
    Eerie and rockin. Love it.

    10. Dandy Warhols - Bohemain Like You
    My favorite song of all time. No matter what I am doing, this song fits perfectly. Modern rock at its best with a good singer, catchy chorus, and great riffs.

    If you haven't heard any of these and you like modern/classic rock, check them out.
