Also very - I dunno - temporal? This list would have been different 3 years ago and will be different in 3 years. I like looking at pitchfork's lists like that - the #1 album of last year is Arcade Fire's Funeral, but it's like 40 on best of 2000-2004. I guess 2004 sucked.

I also find it funny that Animal Collective, Brian Wilson, and a good 4-5 more 2004 releases are higher then Arcade Fire on the top of 2000-2004 list, even though it came out like 6 weeks after their tops of 2004 list.

Not to dis it but many of the songs on the list of top 500 were pretty much ignored here.  The first Radiohead one, is that off the latest or some B side?  I wonder how many were import only here in the states thereby reducing their chances of being on an indie greatest here.

Just? It was a huge hit off The Bends and has a very popular video.
