Gummy Awards

Most Overblogged

This wasn’t even close. (Sorry, Win.) Actually, here’s a fun experiment: Take the top 10 overblogged/overhyped artists by your votes, and compare ‘em to our most tagged artists for the past 365 days. You guys vote pretty literally. Except for Amy Winehouse — it seems like everybody agrees she could just use a vacation. Impressively, the White Stripes didn’t get hit too hard here. Looks like Bradford Cox’s exploits wore a little thin, and hey Dan Deacon finally made a top 10! Honorable Mention: “any of those damn remix people- I hate all of them, JUSTICE and what not. And anything shoegazy.” Half the Top 10 albums of the year overlap with the Top 10 overblogged — Arcade Fire, Radiohead, M.I.A., Animal Collective, and of Montreal — proving again that one person’s gold is another’s crap. And if you’re equating “overblogged” with “overexposed,” then oM ftw.
