Top 10 Worst Things About Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone

The Top Ten

1 They give bad reviews to anything they can't understand

Any sort of experimental music or music that speaks for a non-popular demographic gets panned by them. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

They gave "Debut" a 2/5 simply because of the electronic production, yet "Sremmlife" got 5/5. Idiots... - Swellow

If it was someone else saying something the other way around you'd be all up in their face... - ProPanda

2 They pander to whatever is popular

They literally give almost every album that peaks at #1 a good grade, regardless of the quality. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

I love this list! I agree they both suck. Thank you EvilNuggetCookie!

Seems like you do the same thing - Chumbi12

I pandering to nothing. I share opinions that are often controversial. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

3 They think their opinions are facts

They make their reviews as if they are set in stone facts and do not bother to address any sort of counter-claim. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

4 They never dare to go against the grind

They always decide to just agree with whatever the general public's opinion is. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

5 They do the same things as tabloids but try to pretend they don't

They cover a bunch of gossip and crap and try to cover it up by doing "proffesional reviews" - TheEvilNuggetCookie

6 They really don't know much about music

You can tell by their wording that they have no idea what they are talking about. They use phrases like "soared up the charts" or "made something special" to cover up their incompetency. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

7 They both think "Sremmlife" is a good album

They both put "Sremmlife" as one of the best albums of 2015. Enough said. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

8 Their reviews are short and have no depth

Their reviews are basically "it's good" or "it isn't good" and then slap a grade on it and name a random song it the "Best track" with no explanation as to why. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

9 They put no effort into their lists

This list has more effort and heart put into it than their "Top 40 Albums of the Year" lists that take 10 people to write. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

10 Rolling Stones 500 greatest songs of all time

2010 Update

Bohemian Rhapsody isn't in the Top 100
Bunch of 50s - 60s bubblegum pop that wasn't that good in retrospect
Lose Yourself left the chart for no reason
Only 1 Fleetwood Mac song
Only 2 Radiohead songs
Lots of iconic Pink Floyd songs that didn't even make it
Lack of metal (the only songs I believe were on were Enter Sandman & 2 Black Sabbath songs)

Not bad, but still VERY flawed. - djpenquin999

The Contenders

11 They Overrate Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones
12 They are, in all honesty, useless

Do we really need buissnesses that make millions off of telling us what our opinions should be? - TheEvilNuggetCookie

13 They rehash every issue
14 They don't understand experimental music

Pretty much everything Bjork has failed by Rolling Stone because they don't understand the electronic music in it. - Swellow
