KTCL sucks!!

so they did the top 93.3 songs of the 90's today (for 93.3). i voted earlier this week, and there were like 20 u2 songs on the ballot. i listened all day today and did not here a single u2 song. needless to say i was pretty upset. anyway, here were the top 10.

1.When I Come Around Green Day
2.Smells Like Teen Spirit Nirvana
3.Basket Case Green Day
4.Welcome To Paradise Green Day
5.Buddy Holly Weezer
6.Californication Red Hot Chili Peppers
7.What I Got Sublime
8.Come As You Are Nirvana
9.Pretty Fly (for A White Guy) Offspring
10.What's My Age Again ? Blink 182

this list sucks. i really thought that one would be in here at some point. and when i figured green day would get #1, i figured they would at least have good riddance, but when i come around? this is not even the best green day song, let alone the best song of the 90's.

i decided that i don't want to listen to the same station as these morons, so pretty much i'll be listening to kbco (97.3), kcsu (90.5), and the mountain (99.5) from now on. this is sad because ktcl used to be awesome. the music on that station kept me alive through some tough times in middle and high school. i guess that part of my life is over now.

Perhaps part of the problem is that there were 20 U2 songs listed. Everyone has different favorites and no one (or two) gets enough votes to make it in. It would be interesting to know how many votes U2 got altogether.

Besides, it's just a popularity contest. I've never put much stock in popularity contests myself.

that's a good call, except i would guess that most people who were voting would have looked at the list and been like "zoo station, zooropa, wtf?" and been like hey "one, mysterious ways" i know them, click.

plus in the voting, you weren't limited to how many songs you could pick, you just went through the list and clicked what you wanted. conceivably, you could have voted for every song on the list.

i also don't think the number should have hurt them, green day had at least ten songs on the list.

oh well, i'll just listen to kbco. it seems like you can't go an hour without hearing a different (and deeper) u2 song. in the last couple days i have heard all i want is you, miracle drug, and one tree hill, after an approximate total of an hour and a half of listening.

oh good call on the .3 of a song. it took me a minute to catch what you meant LOL. i guess maybe they just rounded down, but now that i think of it, i feel even more short changed

You've apparently never heard a Blink-182 song before.

it's not that i care. it's just that it makes me question whether life is worth living if my radio station is not worth listening to. for a while i had decided it wasn't. that was the original reason i posted.

after that i realized that there are other radio stations out there, and that maybe i could go on. but then again, who really knows if there even is an "out there". what if all of this is happening inside my head? what if i just made the whole thing up? what if i'm not really sitting here right now?

some might say they don't believe in heaven, but go tell it to the man who lives in hell.

some may say that you all out there will provide me with something that can prove an external reality to me. someone outside of me is responding to me. but for all i know, everyone here is just the random fumblings of the inner workings of my computer, designed by microsoft to provide me with a computer driven sense of self. if that's the case where does that leave me?

i'm scared, lonely, and confused, and worst of all, my favorite radio station has deserted me in my time of need. so i guess that's why i care.

blink 182's last album was ten times better than most of the shit that's been talked about on this forum lately.

Yeah. I've seen some bad lists, but this one tops it.
There's only one genre going on in it. I wouldn't trust a list of top ten that draws from just one musical style.

Yeah, everyone says that. I've only heard the singles, so I won't even pretend I'm credible, but I think it's funny everyone thinks they've made some gigantic evolution just because they've left the dick jokes out this time. It's like they set the bar so low with their first run of albums that anything they come out with now will sound amazing.
