If you’re like us, you probably feel completely bewildered that it’s already almost 2022. Looks like just yesterday we started the new decade of the 20s, and then … well, you know .
We’re now close to two years and the world looks quite different now than it was at the end of 2019. But we’re still here, and there’s still a ton of good rock and metal to keep us going. sane until the pandemic officially ends … when it can be.
Look, 2021 hasn’t completely sucked. Live music has finally made a comeback, although some changes have been put in place to attend some shows. Some bands that we haven’t heard new music from in decades have finally released new material. We practically had a nu-metal revival in the fall when Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, and Korn all released new music within a matter of weeks.
We hope 2022 will bring even more change and even more normalcy. So with that, we wanted to close 2021 the right way – with some of the best rock and metal party songs ever. Loudwire Nights will host a New Years special in the last hour of December 31, featuring all of the best party and drinking songs you’ve chosen.
Whether you are going to a party or celebrating yourself at home, music is the best way to ring in the New Year. Head down below to vote for your favorites and tune in to Loudwire Nights on December 31 to see which ones prevail.
Have a safe and good holiday!
Loudwire Nights with Toni Gonzalez airs nightly starting at 7 p.m. ET. You can log in anytime, from anywhere here or by downloading the Loudwire app.
