It's December, so music critics everywhere are raring to post their "Best of 2008" lists. To prevent every single story on Punknews.org from being another top ten list, we'll periodically summarize some of the more popular/submitted lists for you in a single story.

The second batch comes from some diverse places; first up, Rolling Stone Magazine which named TV On The Radio, Lil Wayne, Metallica, Vampire Weekend, The Magnetic Fields, Of Montreal and The Academy Is.... Time Magazine also named Lil Wayne, Metallica and TV On The Radio as well as Girl Talk and Kanye West. Indie digital retailer eMusic named Gaslight Anthem, The Kills, Blacklisted, Jay Reatard and more. Finally, the folks at Suicide Squeeze put together a list made up of the choices of artists on the label, other label folks, and people at SS. Their list runs quite a range, from No Age to Dillinger Four and more.

Our best of 2008 lists will be coming this month, but more importantly, your best of 2008 will be coming out soon and feature the most voted for albums of the year.
