1. Jay-Z, "American Gangster"
The title track from Jay's new album sounds practically identical to "Show Me What You Got" from last year's failed comeback Kingdom Come, but, inexplicably, it's great! [MyLifeHipHop]
2. Jay-Z, "Fallin'"
On a shockingly stinker-free record, this is our favorite track so far. [MyLifeHipHop]
3. Eddie Vedder, "All Along the Watchtower" (Bob Dylan cover)
Vedder does the 5,936th best-ever cover of this song — not bad! [Fuel Friends]
5. The Hold Steady, "Against the Wind" (Bob Seger cover)
Craig Finn sings and hits approximately one correct note. [Pretty Much Amazing]
