Hey look, Jay-Z is on the cover of the upcoming issue of Blender, which is no great surprise as Jay-Z has been and will be on the cover of everything for the foreseeable future. But what’s this other item being teased on the front cover? Some kind of… list? Some kind of indie rock list?
“The 100 Greatest Indie-Rock Albums Ever”? Hot damn! Are your WordPress accounts ready to rumble? Not being the type of people who wait for Christmas morning to dig into our plum pudding, we went looking for the list online, and found this, a Russian LiveJournal that claims (from what our limited Babelfish skills can tell) to have it. But this can’t really be it, with De La Soul at No. 14 and the Shaggs at No. 100, can it? This is clearly some sort of Russian disinformation. Sadly, whatever the final tally, we’re informed the list was not compiled by “The Hills‘ Superhot Supervillain” Heidi Montag. But we can dream.
UPDATE: It’s real.
