That list is pathetic.

The top 20 has nothing since 1991 except a fucking Santana record?

And don't give me any crap about rap if you own Michael Jackson records.

That was when Micheal Jackson had part of his original nose. I should have known something was amiss when he said Billie Jean was not his lover!

As far as music, it has been sucking since the 2000's. I think Titanic's "My Heart Will Go On" just sucked all the creative air out of everybody's windpipes.

I love this sequence:

95 CREED, HUMAN CLAY 1999 Rock

96 CLASH, LONDON CALLING 1979 Rock

97 CELINE DION, FALLING INTO YOU 1996 Adult Contemporary

98 NEIL YOUNG, HARVEST 1972 Rock


Creed over The Clash. Celine Dion over Neil Young.

What a bunch of clowns!
