i’m cool

Rolling Stone has posted their “50 coolest” and “50 uncoolest” albums. Out of the 50 “coolest,” I own 13 and out of the 50 “uncoolest,” I own 3. Under normal circumstances I would be terribly disappointed, considering I own 2500+ albums, and admitedly, some are not cool, but Rolling Stone has no idea what cool is. Aside from the lackluster list, each album is on a separate page (web design 101, anyone?). Anyway, it’s kind of hard for me to argue about what’s uncool since, well, I’m cool and don’t own (or know) many of their choices for uncool albums.

Here’s just a few albums they left off their “cool” list:

Nirvana – Nevermind

The Replacements – Let It Be

Elvis Costello – Armed Forces

Bob Marley & The Wailers – Legend

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Are You Experienced?

Belle & Sebastian – The Boy With The Arab Strap

The Doors – The Doors

John Lennon – Imagine

Big Star – #1 Record/Radio City

Meat Beat Manifesto – Storm The Studio

R.E.M. – Murmur

Jane’s Addiction – Nothing’s Shocking

Radiohead – OK Computer

Uncle Tupelo – No Depression

They Might Be Giants – They Might Be Giants

Travis – The Man Who

Pearl Jam – Ten

I could keep going, but you get the idea. How “cool” or “uncool” are you?

  1. It’s seriously shocking that they didn’t include some of the albums you listed. They must have a pretty interesting definition of cool.

    apparently I’m not cool enough for Rolling Stone (though, they should think I’m pretty cool with all the money I’ve spent on their pages all these years). But that doesn’t make me sad one bit… I own some rockin (!) records, and I’M COOL!

    or so I thought about two seconds ago.

  2. where’s all the stevie nicks cd’s? the sons o’ bitches! brad, do something about it!

    here are my 50 reasons why brad is cool: he still gets me advance copies of awesome cds and that makes me cool and him even cooler. (add that reason 49 times now.)

    here are my 50 reasons why brad is not cool: he comes to my house teases me with certain advance shite and refuses to make me a copy of it and he knows of what i speak. mu’fucker. (add that reason 49 times.)

    he’s still cool AND he’s 50% gay – awesome!
