The Music Hall of Fame (Version 2)

Many of you have wondered where good songs go when they die. Or why some are placed above others of much higher caliber, worth, and shininess. Some go to the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, where they are nourished and become legends. But what happens to those songs that aren't nourished and "legendified?" What about the magnificently marvelous rap songs? Or those incredible other songs? Do they wither and die, forgotten in the murky depths of time? Is that how talent is rewarded? What about the songs that are glorified when they don't deserve do be? Maybe the song itself sounds like shit and the lead singer was a douchebag. What happens then?

That's a good question. After searching the world for the land where music dwelt, the realization was come to that there is no place for exceptionally excellent music. The first ever Music Hall of Fame was created. Songs of every nature and demeanor could rejoice in the knowing that if they grew up to be amazing, they would journey to this land where all is beautiful. Those songs that are the highest of the high, the pinnacle of musical achievement, the kind of songs that make a person want to cry because they're so dynamite, all of them come here. Listed here are the greats of music throughout the century (according to a small group of highly immature teenagers). The few, the brave, the proud: The Hall of Fame, Version 2.0. View, and be humbled.
