It probably also has to do with that they are basically the only band I don't enjoy from this group. This is how I would probably have guessed the Spotify order: Radiohead Depeche Mode Dire ...

I raised my eyebrows too at some of these choices, but it's a daily newspaper so after a little thought I think they make sense. Yes the readers probably mostly listen to mainstream music. This is a good start to check out other music.
