    System of a down deserves to be #1. Nuff said cuz green day is a sellout band

    1. Suzyintheskye says:

      Any band that goes mainstream is a sell out band.. so anything you hear on any radio station is a sell out.. Green Day deserved to be number 1.. they had one of the best albums that year..

  11. vanessa says:

    I think 2005 was a great year for music. I was happy to see NIN on the list along with Green Day. 🙂

  13. Gabriel says:

    Total domination for Green Day, and that’s without American Idiot on the list. Come to think of it…why the hell isn’t American Idiot on the top 20 of 2004 or 2005???

  14. RC says:

    Green Day is the best band and now,Hope that in future they will make awesome album that will be better than American Idiot and 21st CB!

    Where’s “The Clincher” by Chevelle?

  22. Kat says:

    This was a fantastic year for music.

  23. ang says:

    NIN ❤

  24. ATownAndrew says:

    I agree, where’s A7X “Bat Country”? Jesus of Surburbia should be replaced with American Idiot for the 4th Green Day song, otherwise 4 Green Day songs is about right. They dominated 2005 thanks to a lot of inspiration from George W Bush

  25. ffm20 says:

    the year 2005 had been a special year for me as i had my first great love in this year

    and i left school

    i remember this year beeing the year of green day as they had several hits all around the world

    therefore i think its okay that they are at # 1

  26. RC says:

    2000-20003 and 20005 were the greatest year of music…
    fall out boy did not deserve a spot
    Depeche Mode = Precious should have been in the top 10!

  27. hamilton says:
