"6 Hit Songs You Won't Believe Are Insulting Celebrities"

I didn't know "Like a Rolling Stone" was about Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick.

(Though there are at least a few who dispute this. And the timing seems a little off, but I think people are upset with this interpretation because with it, the lyrics are not as grand.)

"Are These the 10 Most Talented Women in Rock ‘n’ Roll History?"

Grace Slick should have been included and, of course, Joni Mitchell, but it's a good start.

"Bang Your Drum"

By Dead Man Fall.

"Like a Lead Balloon"

"As anyone who’s struggled to start a band, get shows, record music, and become a certified rock star knows, coming up with a name is half the challenge."

"The Complete Works: Ranking All 121 Billy Joel Songs"

I'd vote for "Only the Good Die Young" for #1 instead of #2. And I'd put "Leave a Tender Moment Alone" higher.

"Four Things Conservatives Can Get Out Of Hip-Hop"

It's a nice try, but I'm not buying it.

If there’s good music out there, you should want to be hearing it. If you don’t have an innate taste for this music, make a small effort anyway. Be open-minded and intentionally seek out the very best. Tons of people love this particular kind of art. If you’re a remotely curious person, you should want to know why.

And if that art also has the potential to challenge and deepen your worldview? Well, then it’s all the more imperative that conservatives give hip-hop a shot.
