It's not bullshit if the English-speaking country is England. No one gives a fuck about Tom Petty or Classic Rock radio over there

January 29, 2015 on Tom Petty Releases Statement “About The Sam Smith Thing”
"A restless and searching spirit led Lennon down countless musical roads, setting the template for the Beatles experimentations and functionally inventing psychedelia on the fly." Think I have to call 'bullshit' on this statement. After all these years you're still peddling the myth that Paul had little to do with their pushing the envelope musically. Paul was the one hanging out with the underground artists and musicians in London while John was living in the suburbs. Hell, he introduced him to Yoko.

Love Charli but you should have told her that 'Money' is a cover of a old Motown record. Barrett Strong was the one who "just went there and didn’t fucking care"

It's OK I guess but I prefer the more goth Charli on her album.

The original fold-out origami sleeve of Armed Forces is a classic too http://www.johncoulthart.com/armed_forces.html

Where they both sound out of place like they've wandered in off different records. It's like putting 'I Fought The Law' on the first Clash album. Oh, that's right...

When The Skids covered 'All The Young Dudes' they sang 'Who needs TV when I got Subway Sect?' Personally I'd have '20th Century Boy' and 'Children of The Revolution' fight it out for #1 and found room for 'Deborah' but top list otherwise.

In real life the Sex Pistols had broken up before Maggie was Prime Minister.

'Young Americans' IS a brilliant record, I agree the cover of 'Across The Universe' is appalling but the rest of the album is gorgeous.

'Everything's Gone Green' was the first time they made dance music, not 'Temptation', and as seemingly everyone has pointed out it really should be on this list. Also I'm not sure if you realize that the name New Order has Nazi roots, just as "Joy Division" did. Only this time, as many pointed out at the time, this was a reference to the Nazis themselves, not their victims. It caused quite a bit of fuss back then.

I loved them and Chrissie (joined the fan club! Saw the original line up!) but just can't see 'Talk of The Town' at #1. It has to be 'Kid' or 'Back On The Chain Gang'

"The Sex Pistols tried to destroy rock and roll, The Clash wanted to save it" - Julie Burchill, circa 1978. (She wasn't complimenting The Clash, by the way)

Don't think I've been to Brick Lane in 25 years, it's changed a lot. "Aaliyah” has instantly become one of my fave tracks of the year.

Oh, and this: No one seemed, at least from lip service, to be in it for the long haul. Never heard of The Jam?

Spanish Bombs??? Are you joking? That wouldn't even make my top 5 of songs from that album. #1 has to be "White Man In Hammersmith Palais" And sorry, as a Brit, I can't get behind this notion that the US version of their first album is the better one. It's like a frigging compilation album! And it has 'I Fought The Law' on it which was recorded years later when they sounded completely different.

As someone old enough to have bought 'Ceremony' and 'Still' when they came out it's definitely a New Order record. So there.

It's a Joy Division "song" but it was a New Order record. JD never recorded it.

"It’s weird to think that it took less than five years for U2 to get from the wailing sincerity of The Joshua Tree to the monolithic but wry dance-pop of Achtung Baby" What's weird is it took them that long (to basically go back to their post-punk roots), pop music moves at a snails pace these days with big bands only putting out albums every few years. It took The Beatles only five years to get from 'Love Me Do' to 'A Day In The Life' - that's what I call rapid progress.
