Stupid Shit of the Day: New Musical Express

So the fine folks that run UK music magazine NME have decided to tell you what the 500 greatest albums of all time are. It is THE definitive list they say. I will assume that statement is being made tongue in cheek but I can guarantee nothing. I made it as far as number 4(that’s right, number 4) before turning my attention to more important tasks like finding Taco’s “Puttin On The Ritz”. It’s been stuck in my head all day. Great track. Check it out while pondering the notion that said list is actually meant to….wait for it……be taken seriously! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Seriously.


Here’s the top 25. Thanks to Brooklyn Vegan for typing all that out. I sure as hell wasn’t doing it. You can link the rest at NME.
