It’s hard to believe, but NME.COM is fifteen years old. The site launched in 1996, back when people still listened to music on Sony Discman, DVDs were the hot new thing from Japan and Google didn’t even exist yet. Much has changed in music since then but NME.COM is still going strong.
NME has decided that it was a good time to look back and reflect on some of the best music that’s been released over the site’s lifetime. Obviously settling on a top 150 involved some heated debate, but we hope you enjoy reading the feature, and listening to the playlist on Spotify. Here’s to the next 15 years of incredible music.
