(This post is part of Frequency’s coverage of the best music of the past decade. You can see all of that coverage in one place by clicking here. And be sure to tune in Dec. 18, when I’ll post “Near/Far,” our annual, downloadable MP3 compilation of the best music of 2009, to go along with our year-in-review package in that day’s GO! Magazine.)

This Massive Attack beat absolutely destroys anything in its path. Mighty Mos holds his own on the mic, too. What an effort. I believe this song first appeared on the soundtrack of “Blade II,” some vampire movie from 2002 starring Wesley Snipes. The Internet tells me that movie is nearly 120 minutes long.

I am pretty sure I’d rather listen to this song 23 times in a row than watch “Blade II.”
