Here are some of my favorite songs by a bunch of my favorite artists. They’re some of the best pop, punk, Brit pop and local L.A. tunes that I’ve played on my radio show, “Rodney on the ROQ,” on KROQ.

These songs have kept me company and changed my life. I hope they do the same for you. Thanks to everyone who’s listened over the years.

It’s all happening,

Rodney Bingenheimer
