Doom Charts 2020 Favorites – Jonny Pirie

We all know what a shit show 2020 was, in pretty much every way. Except for maybe one. Music. I honestly don’t know what I would have done with the year had it not been for the onslaught of great music we were subjected to. With all the spare time I had to fill, I still couldn’t keep a handle on it all and if I had a lot of spare time to listen, you can bet that bands around the globe had a lot of time to create. 2020 is just a trickle on the wall of the dam. 2021 is going to see that dam burst wide open.

Below is my top 25 of the year, not really in any particular order, bar the top 3 which were mainstays in my house, car and wherever the hell else I had time to listen to music this year.

Hope you enjoy what you hear and here’s to a better year.
