Staff Picks: Top 5 Songs of 2020

Staff Picks: Top 5 Songs of 2020

The pandemic brought live shows to a halt and slowed down music releases for a little while, but there were still some great releases this year.

We received new albums from Marilyn Manson, Deftones, Lamb of God, Killer Be Killed and, perhaps most importantly, the return of AC/DC!

Check out what songs our on-air staff were into while we all lived in isolation and worked from home.
