12. "Kick to the Head" by Apartment 26
Apartment 26 only put out two albums before disbanding, and while the first album was pretty good, the follow-up, Music for the Massive, became my favorite album of 2004 and now holds a spot in my Top 5 Favorite Albums. This is my favorite song on said album. Full of dreamlike imagery and showcasing each members' strengths to the fullest, the song is nothing short of a masterpiece of modern rock.
