The Danger of Internet Jukeboxies

This glory of technology allows you to play Tullycraft and deep cuts from "Distant Early Warning" in public. Awesome, right? But it's a loaded gun, my friends. And stupid people with loaded guns are dangerous. You can very easily wind up with a song that sounds like a computer getting a hernia exam or hardcore Tejano-Carribean rap or Metallica's "One." The wonderfulness of democracy is not absolute.

No, I'll take the finite list of boring, predictable classics, thanks. "Piano Man?" Fine. "Sweet Home Alabama?" No problem. "I Wear My Sunglasses at Night?" Really? Okay? Sure. At least I know I don't have to drink a beer to System of a Down's "Chop Suey."
