im 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?
