Best of 2016

Started this post over a month ago! 2016 sucked for everybody for so many reasons, but I can't complain about my life right now. I'm gainfully employed and playing in a good band, my family is happy, and I own not one, but two decent pairs of headphones. So the macro sucks, but the micro is doing ok. Anyway, here's the thing that everyone's been waiting for: what a middle-aged rock enthusiast from Cary, NC liked to listen to in 2016!
