Ten Best September 11 Songs by Artists You Actually Like

On the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, it's appropriate to reflect and pay tribute to all the brave souls who lost their lives on that heartbreaking day. Over the years, many musicians have attempted to capture the spirit of grief, frustration, and remembrance that followed for the nearly 3,000 innocent victims that needlessly passed away on that tragic day.

Many of the worst examples have become staggeringly popular. We assure you there are tributes beyond Toby Keith's "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)" or Alan Jackson's "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" or the star-studded benefit single "What More Can I Give," with cameos from Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, 'NSync, and Destiny's Child. Here is our sibling Village Voice's list of even more 9/11 songs to avoid.

Never fear; New Times has compiled a list of songs that pay homage to the events that occurred on 9/11 without having to sacrifice your musical inclinations.
