}other.. They are probably just trying to make as many people happy as 
}they can.. More people like the Tragically Hip than The Hardship Post.. 
}SO more people want to see those videos. It's called _pop_ music.

Comments:

-Serious lack of CanCon!
-Serious bias toward 'alternative' or 'modern' rock music! (albeit 
not indies) 
-No TH of either variety!

However it seems to me that this list differs considerably from 
their daily rotation, so maybe they should think about listening a 
little more to the request lines.
