Billboard polls all its staffers and does an annual top 10 list, along with listing a bunch of their Top 10 lists and the lists of various artists. It's always fun to scroll through all the lists and if you find someone with similar tastes, any of their picks you don't know can be a good bet.Here's the final list for this year.

7. The Hold Steady -- Boys and Girls in America (38 pts)
8. tie: Red Hot Chili Peppers -- Stadium Arcadium and Dixie Chicks -- Taking The Long Way (33 pts each)
