Seventy-nine-year-old Michigan woman Evie Branan woke up from a five-year coma this month and had a single wish: to see a Bob Seger concert. She had remarkable timing. Seger is on a relatively rare tour, and it hit Michigan's Palace of Auburn Hills this week. Branan got to live her dream, and she even went backstage to meet Seger. It was the feel-good rock story of the year.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
