We've been asking artists about their favorite albums of 2022, and this list comes from Spike Slawson of the long-running punk rock cover band supergroup Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and Swingin' Utters, among other projects. Spike says, "These ten albums of 2022 (PLUS Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas,' which just missed being in the running by a decade or two) are what get us pumped up to play places like Palmdale, Fresno and Ventura" (cities the band was about to play when Spike first made this list). His picks include the Gimme Gimmes' recent tourmates Surfbort, the new supergroup PLOSIVS (members of Pinback, Rocket from the Crypt, and more), Lizzo, Oh Sees, The Chats, The Linda Lindas, and more. Read on for the full list...
