Yes it's called Alhiemer's...when you can't remember something you go and make your self a list!

Any other lists are just pretentious wastes of time that serve no real purpose but here we are talking about that list in Rolling Stone...exactly what they want you to do...like PT Barnum said ( well I think it was him) "There's a sucker born everyday" So we fall into the marketing trap they set for us!

It's the same reason we have stupid reality shows on every channel/time in the US. We are as a whole, shallow, mindless, easily amused humans.

"It's all about stickin it to the man!"
It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!

I know what you mean about those shows. In the UK we have things like the 100 greatest comedy films and other such rubbish. Only watch if you feel like being braindead for a while. Same as big brother really.

For me to be honest for a second, Sometimes I rather enjoy lists of the such. When I see a list like the one discussed, I'll say"hmm, maybe I'll give this song a listen, seeing as though I'm always looking for music". I've found certain odds and ends from assorted lists before. But sometimes I hate them. Depending on who writes them, they can be so narrow minded and more pointless than they can sometimes already be.

I think blueline makes a good point, we have lists for everything. Maybe its just a human trait?

I agree that they are a good way to find new music, and i have found quite a few bands through online lists that i might not have done. However i think that the sheer amount of lists, especially those list shows on TV, is total overkill. But finding some on the web and discussing them is good, an people's suggestions for songs that should have been on there gives me more scope in the bands i like.

RS pays its homage. (They know who buttered their bread)

I must have been working too hard. . . I missed the Nirvana era.
