Best Record Labels of the Decade - The future of record labels is constantly in question. However, we at betterPropaganda believe that the labels that matter the most are here to stay. These labels are the cream-of-the-crop - the tastemakers.

Top 100 Albums of the Decade - Compiling a decade list is no small feat. 2000 to the present is compact enough to feel relevant to betterPropaganda's history, but stretches far enough back to include the artists who inspired us to start a site like this in the first place.

Top 100 Artists of the Decade - In selecting our Top 100 Artists of the Decade, we kept our eye on cultural and musical distinctiveness (yes, it's subjective - we know), innovation, longevity, and influence in the industry.
