15 Albums on Harry Potter's iPod

So, we found Harry Potter's iPod. We know it was Harry's because it had smoke burns on the wheel, and the back featured an engraved lightning bolt. We found the device, and a set of headphones, when we were taking a walk in a dark forest. There it was--right next to a tree-trunk and a noseless man in a black, flowing robe.

We wheeled through through the artists and songs, and we thought we'd post the findings. According to our sources, Harry was born in 1995, so a lot of the songs on here make sense.

According to his taste on the list, Harry's gotten a little more mature and a pretty indie of late. We imagine Harry firing up a cig in his thin jeans, cranking these bad boys up and wishing he was more like the hipster Muggles that don't have to fight, cast spells or care about anything. They don't know how good they have it.

Take a look at Harry's surprisingly awesome iPod after the jump.

1. Brand New - Deja Entendu
"Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades" has been played the most on Harry Potter's iPod.   

2. Jarvis Cocker - Jarvis Cocker
We're guessing Harry sings "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time" loud and proud.
3. Radiohead - In Rainbows
"15 Steps" was most "On-The-Go" playlisted songs on Harry's pod.

4. Oasis - Dig Out Your Soul
If you were Harry, wouldn't you? (See: Dumbledore's Death)

5. Muse - Absolution
This was a mystery. Why Harry? Is it the album's title?

6. Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms
If we fought Death Eaters all day, we'd need some "Deadbeat Summer" too.

7. Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American 
We saw "Hear You Me" on at least four winter-themed playlists. May angels bring you in, Harry.

8. Jason Mraz - We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.
If we were to crack Harry's iTunes, we might see "If It Kills Me" gifted by Ron Weasely.

9. Blur - Think Tank
"Out of Time" is where Harry Potter'd surely like to be.

10. Rooney - Rooney
We imagine Ron and Harry, high-fiving and sh-sh-shaking at Rooney shows in the summertime. 

11. Gorillaz - Gorillaz
Oh, like you're surprised.

12. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
What strange magic makes this album cover move?!?!?!?!

13. Bright Eyes - Lifted or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground

"Waste of Paint" is what Harry bumps on the train to Hogwarts.

14. Starsailor - Silence Is Easy
Seriously: What's more British than Starsailor?

15. Travis - The Boy With No Name

If you're British, don't you have to own Travis?
