alright with "alright" at number 5

Dave Bry (#422)

At first I was very excited to see there was a Listicle Without Commentary about one of my favorite bands. But upon reading it, I am saddened to realize that it is not about one my favorite bands, but about an imposter version of that band, with the same name and identical song titles. Because such a Listicle Without Commentary about the band that is one of my favorites would have "Don't Stop Now" in the top 10, and "Redman And Their Wives" where it rightfully belongs, at no. 1.

@Dave Bry Don't Stop Now. Also, Motor Away, Closer You Are, Exit Flagger, King and Caroline… I mean…

Dave Bry (#422)

It's an academy of lies. (Or something like that.)

Mr. B (#10,093)

Just curious, Bry, but how many favorite bands have you got, anyway?

@Dave Bry I don't get redman and their wives

Murgatroid (#2,904)

"Motor Away" at #53???, etc.

aSaltySalute (#293)


Brooks (#8,624)

I think you're missing a top 10 track "Peep-Hole" and I otherwise completely disagree

Johnnie R (#23,844)

Echos Myron just never did it for me – I'd flip it and Gold Star for Robot Boy

Matt (#26)

74. Unleashed! The Large-Hearted Boy


Jim Newell (#2,872)


Brian Calandra (#3,753)

Tractor Rape Chain isn't number 1? You're just trolling.

Chris G. (#2,658)

@Brian Calandra You are correct.

glad you are enough of a fan to do this but it's totally subjective and really pretty pointless. I really like Ghosts of different Dream and never liked Cut Out Witch. A random list of songs would probably be just as close to my favs /nots

Echos Myron is right where it's supposed to be, but you need to move I Am A Scientist down into the top 20 or so.
