  16. victor marquez says:

    iam trying to remember a song that came out about a year ago dont know the name it just had alot of whisteling in it

    1. nfirebolt1 says:

      would it be young folks by peter bjorn and john? i know it has whistling in it, lol. i don’t know when it came out though

  17. ATownAndrew says:

    Yeah Flobots is on here! I’m surprised Rehab “Sittin at a Bar” is not on here though

  18. ffm20 says:

    i totally agree with the list of 2008

    and im happy that kroq even plays genres which are not obviously rock like mia
    the choice of OFFSPRING at #1 was a surprise

    but they deserve this position as they had their most successful song ever in the usa and their first gold certificiation of a single

  19. Allan says:

    I’m looking for a song I’ve heard in kroq it sounds like a cowbow song with soldies does anyone know what’s the. Name of it??

  20. hugo hamilton perez says:

    viva la vida is a great song is number one but paper plan by mia isn’t alternative…
