  1. I’m angry at this list because it doesn’t talk about ____________.

    And why is the ranking the way it is, _______________ should be higher on the chart than Lana Del Ray.

    You guys are out of touch with ______________, what a bunch of hipsters.

  2. Has Lana Del Rey really been the top entry for THREE WEEKS in a row now? Oy.

    • Doubt she’ll be on there next week, but there is the Letterman appearance coming up… maybe she’ll bring 9 South Korean girls.

  3. Why do I have to keep fixing these things for you?

  4. I need to see that Bad Girls video…like now

  5. Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see

  6. I love the last three pics all together. It looks like Neil Young is saying something amazingly racist to A$AP Rocky and R. Kelly at a party.

  7. i noticed that there’s no definite “thumbs down” for anything this week. even the almost-universally-panned Lana Del Ray album got a “so-so” rating. what are you guys, chicken?

  8. that Jack White photo…

    Michael Jackson circa SCREAM?

  9. I’m really anticipating new chart toppers in the near-future.

    Right now I’m currently obsessed with Oberhofer’s new single “HEART”. I believe his album comes out March 27th on Glassnote. It’s called “Time Capsules II” and the sweeping instrumentals are what really get me.

    Definitely hoping it’ll make the buzz chart upon its release. :)
