I remember one of the local shows here in DC reading this list when it came out. Don't you think these guys made a list so they could say they did SOMETHING. So hard to believe they did this thinking it would really keep people from hearing songs that triggered some kind of bad/sad feelings. I mean really, a list like this is stupid. Total PR stunt.

Luckily, the Martha Reeves' AND the Dead's version of "Dancin' in the street" is still fair game.
