Noooooooo. Seriously, don't. If you're going with the same tone we were discussing, it's perfect.

Obviously. I really am looking forward to seeing how everybody took on the massive task though.





Probably. I was coming into it expecting such a thing to happen.
There will be too much rap/hip-hop on there and you'll regret it because you lack the appropriate atmosphere.

Don't conform, honky.

The big problem now is that there is such a deliberate tempo to my list, so the four people who listen to it probably will turn it off.
I will step on my iPod afterward if that makes you feel any better.

I actually limited myself to just a few hip-hop tracks. But, it's probably still too much.

I think the only one that made my list was "Flashing Lights," but I may add another one in before I submit.

Imma let you finish, but "Flashing Lights" is one of the greatest songs of all-time. OF ALL-TIME.

Only if you're a musical savant like Kanye.

I counted four or five hip-hop tracks, depending on how one classifies Why? and Girl Talk.

I'd say Girl Talk falls more into the realm of a mash-up/remix artist instead of some general classification, and Why? can vary from track-to-track.

This is a good point. The Why? track happens to be one of the more rap-oriented ones, though it does feature xylophones prominently, but yeah, more of a hip-hop track either way.

Sweet. Why? is a band that I've been meaning to get into more anyway.

They are pure awesome, as Scumbo will also attest.

Okay, I have two tracks on here that I reckon most people won't like at all... should I switch them out? They are some of my favourite songs of the decade and I wanted to represent somewhat of a variety which would include some heavier screamo/hardcore stuff ...

You should keep them, I think. The more different it'll be the norm as far as the audience here goes, the better. After all, a big part of this is about exposing people to new music, ain't it?

Sweet. I'm seeing them next week. Hopefully your school won't riot like mine did last spring in the aftermath of a no-show free concert.

I agree with Sad Punk, leave them in. I always look forward to your lists because there's something I've never heard before on them.

Yeah, this. The original reason Liam and I even brought DI to Interference was to be exposed to new music we wouldn't have ordinarily heard. I feel like sometimes people have been a bit too closed off to that, judging songs before they're heard, but the more we can try to eliminate those attitudes, the better. I'm putting black metal in my list, unless I radically change things.
