So yeah, i may be harsh, and yeah i know, i know this is voted by some fuking shit cunts who listen to triple j, and yeah okay, i dont even listen anymore, but still, i don't get some people...
So you may judge me for my taste, and i'm fine with that, because it's my taste and my blog and i want to bitch and moan! But i got so tired thinking of comments there haha.

Don't ask me what i would put as number 1 because i really don't know, i couldnt even vote because i couldnt pick.. so maybe that's enough for you to tell me to pipe down. I dont even know if you're reading, whoever you are who'd get fiesty. But get fiesty, it's more fun!

One thing to add, where's the sigur ros, what about Otis Redding, and air, where's bjork, elliot smith, the flaming lips, interpol, the ramones, the strokes, pavement, television.. yeah sure, some are newer, but sory, i could have easily replaced many songs on this list... oh well. it's over. WHY DO I CARE SO MUCH?!

i agree with most of your comments. sex on fire?! what the hell are people thinking?
and wolf like me i was like "WOAH" seriously so pleasantly surprised by that. i didnt even think many people even knew tvotr...
i think nirvana was a fair winner - but i think if more people new joy division these days love will tear us apart it would have got it (again).
what i dont understand is how excited people get over the whole thing. what is so exciting about a list of other peoples (mostly shit) taste??? so many people make such a big deal about it... i just dont understand.
like you - i hardly listen to the radio anymore. there is a lot of very fantastic music out there that gets almost no air time and is much more deserving.
