Sting,

I have been studying up on my phobias.


Triskaidekaphobia- Fear of the number 13.



The Clash are No. 13 on the list, not No. 14.



Interesting list, Coldplay should not come before the Clash, though.

deciding by votes is an outdated way to rank music

democracy is of fools, by fools and for fools.

Was that the Manics before the Clash? Now, I like the Manic Street Preachers even though Wire is a prat but that's pretty much a crime.

Ahh, lists.

OMD I'm not kidding -- I *stared* at the #1 and wondered why it wasn't Madonna....


She's not British

Seriously.

Also, can't believe Coldplay (and T-Rex? Never heard of him/them) is above Elton John. I love Coldplay a lot and all, but....ELTON JOHN!!

Weird how most of the good music of the world is British...

Oasis above the Stones?

Contrary to popular belief, Radiohead (while awesome and wonderful) is not the end all and be all. Thank you.



Anyways, Queen at Number #1? Um...ok, sure.


It is weird how most of the best music is British.
