He may not ever make the jump into recording (though we wouldn’t put it past him), but Marc Jacobs—purveyor of designer clothes, contemporary clothes, children’s clothes, accessories, books, key chains, pencils, and nearly anything else Bleecker St. could ever imagine—has branched into music.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of his Marc by Marc Jacobs line, the designer has created a playlist chock-full of the sounds of the last decade: music from runway shows and ad campaigns, compiled into a Rhapsody roundup fans can stream free from March 10 to April 10.

The lineup:

1. Sonic Youth “Teen Age Riot”
2. Pavement “Cut Your Hair”
3. Pulp “Common People”
4. Rufus Wainwright “California”
5. The White Stripes “Seven Nation Army”
6. R.E.M. “Orange Crush”
7. M.I.A. “Paper Planes”
8. Karen O and the Kids “Capsize”
9. Amanda Blank “Something Bigger, Something Better”
10. The Drums “Let’s Go Surfing”
11. Deastro “Shield Whip”
12. Nirvana “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
13. Peter Bjorn and John “Young Folks”
14. Crystal Stilts “Love Is a Wave”
15. The Hot Rats “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)

Marc by Marc Jacobs fans who want to fully embody this musical blast from the past can do so all the way to their wardrobes as well. The company has reissued a capsule collection of the most iconic styles in the last 10 years, from military pieces to printed sundresses to tees to those beloved lacquer fruit belts, pins, and necklaces.

The collection is available now in Bloomingdale’s stores and Marc by Marc Jacobs’s pop-up shop, which has temporarily inhabited the company’s Little Marc retail space on Bleecker St.
