Pitchfork's "A Feature About Nothing: The 1990s in Lists" (2010)

Post by Quirk Out Lee » Fri May 06, 2016 11:51 am

Tucked away on Pitchfork are numerous lists such as "The Worst Record Covers of All Time" and (formerly) "The Top 50 Most Common Used CDs", however this feature from 2010 is literally a list of lists concerning 90s stuff, mostly trivial and irrelevant stuff. However I don't know if these ones I'm putting below are useful for the site? They're all quite specific though. I dunno, I'll just post a few, as they're interesting lists anyhow.
