Metal Retrospective

2004: A Metal Retrospective In 150 Songs

It was a very good year.

2004

I could sit here and tell you about all the great records that came out 20 years ago in 2004, but where's the fun in that? Instead, here's a playlist of 150 songs from 150 excellent albums that came out in 2004 for you to check out below (double important considering it's Metal Injection's 20th anniversary).
