  2. Also, thumbs down for Best Original Song? Man or Muppet is a stone cold classic.

  3. I’m reserving all judgment on Lana Del Rey until the album actually drops. I really like “National Anthem”; apparently most of you do not.

  4. Hit CTRL+F: search 311. Found nothing.

    *Sad Lana*

  5. i’m still mystified…how is LDR trending down but still in first? do the thumbs mean anything at all? after two straight weeks with downward trends, so does this mean that two weeks ago she was ranked -1? please help.

  6. The answer is simple. Lana Del Rey is a beautiful disaster.

  7. Isn’t there a new Mazzy Star album coming out? Isn’t that a much better salve to LDR than friggin’ Fiona Apple? Common Burn is a better song than Video Games anyhow.

  8. Yeah, Chris Cornell. Saying “retard” is so gay…

  9. nice! i felt this really summed about the article with an interesting bit of insight, cheers!
