Wait a minute - I think I see what you mean. There is a little bit of everything on there, just to try to appeal to just about any reader that sees the list...even if it means putting absolute horseshit like Suicide Silence and Devil Wears Prada on there. OK, I get it. You're right.

See - it almost worked on me - I saw stuff I liked and said "hey, this ain't bad...". Those fuckers.
Word. Nothing obscure enough to warrant a back pat like on Decibel's list (which, while I didn't love it, wasn't as seemingly bottom-line-motivated as this bullshit).
