4. The Gaslight Anthem, '45'

New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem dropped their newest single "45" in late April. "This song felt to us like we still had something to say in this long line of rock & roll tradition," frontman Brian Fallon told Rolling Stone. "It made the path clear as to what we should do next. Sometimes you just have to leave things behind... turn the record over." The retro-sounding song has been a huge hit with their fan base, and their new album Handwritten (produced by Brendan O'Brien) comes out next week.
