 What a collection of shite. Nice conceit on the list, but come on--all of these songs are embarrassing at best.

 Oh, and raskolnikov, at least half of these songs are great. Stop Breathin' may be the best song on Crooked Rain. Ditto for Keep Fishin' on Maladroit.

 "Rockin' in the Free World"?

 You don't really expect raskolnikov to praise something though, do you?

 Hmm...good point.

 once again hip hop is ignored by the esteemed Stylus staff. "Buggin' Out," anyone?

 I don't think these are all gerunds. Some, like "Keep Finshin'" and "Tryin' to Throw..." are simply predicates. Not that this isn't a fun piece, mind you, I enjoyed it a great deal, but really, when your principal focus is grammar it calls for some vigilance on that front.

 They're at least "participles." The inclusion of "Darlin'," however, is bewildering...
