An Allular List

Okay, so I have done an Essential Descendents/ALL list. I have done a post Ranking the albums of the Descendents/ALL. I have done a post listing the Top 9 ALL/Descendents Songs (although I separated the song between the Descendents and ALL). And I have done a post listing my favorite song on each album.

You would think that I have no more Descendents/ALL lists in me….but of course, you would be wrong.

This next list was a huge undertaking.

This is a list of my Top 11 Descendents/ALL songs. The difference between this and my previously posted Top 9 list is that this is a list of favorite songs combining the two “bands.” Another big difference between the two (and the real reason this post was such a difficult task) is that it is actually listed in order of preference. That is, the #1 song on the list is my #1 favorite song of theirs, #2 is my 2nd favorite song of theirs, and so on….

So without any further introductions, here it is the Top 11 Favorite Descendents/ALL songs!
