Best of Subterranean 2004
Host: Jim Shearer

10. The Dresden Dolls - Coin-Operated Boy
9. TV On The Radio - Staring At The Sun
8. Interpol - Slow Hands

5. Modest Mouse - Float On

1. Atmosphere - Trying To Find A Balance

Top 10 videos as voted on MTV2.com. MTV2 ran out of time at the end, so they didn't play the #1 video. What a way to end the year! See you all in 2005, when hopefully at this time of year, Subterranean will still be on the air.
