If you though the rollings stone's list of albums of the year was bad...

So every week I get email from Newbury Comics about deals on CD's, well this week they were advertising a list of the 200 'definitive' to complete your collection presented by the rock n roll hall of fame. Naturally the list is horrendous. Here are a few of my problems with the aforementioned list. The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin have a total of 15 albums on the list. NWA's masterpiece is 108 far behind Eminem's the Marshall Mather Ep. That take me to my next point some genre's of music are just stuck together in clumps. Case in point: 28. EMINEM-Marshall Mathers Lp OUTKAST-Speakerboxx-Love Below 30. DR. DRE-Chronic 31. BEASTIE BOYS-Licensed To Ill Or: 10. NIRVANA-Nevermind 11. PEARL JAM-Ten. The list includes: 2 Greenday albums, Jewel, Kid Rock, Creed, and Avril Lavigne. Some good bands had the wrong album on the list Radiohead had OK Computer (instead of Kid A, Hail to The Thief, or The Bends). Needless to say the list contains no bands signed to independent labels. For the entire crap list go here:

In good news Be Your Own Pet will be playing an all ages show at the Avalon on May 13th. Of course I'm stoked (a word used far to little) but there is one problem, I believe they I co headlining with The Arctic Monkeys. Oh well, Be Your Own Pet are supposed to be insane live. If anyone wants tickets tell me.

What a tremendously awful list. Newbury Comics has once again proved that they are worthless. Even linkin park got on the list along with dixie chicks and the soundtrack to titanic.
