If you're heading to the Ball, you can prep with this playlist. We've pulled it together by picking one song from each artist, using their most popular song from their most recent release. (With the exception of OutKast; we picked "Ms. Jackson," because how could we not?)
The lineup this year is a great cross-section of indie-leaning music of 2014. Every niche genre is represented, from EDM (Skrillex) to hip-hop (Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt) to Americana (Jason Isbell) to, ah, black metal and punk (Deafheaven and the unfortunately-named Diarrhea Planet, respectively).
