The Go-Away List

[Ed: In which Gumby reveals his age.]

This morning I woke up with both arms pointed at the ceiling. What does it mean?

I stole this from a list of musicians people today (2013) wish would just go away. I recognize only one of them, and that was because I was introduced to her through a scholarly article in a British journal, which defended her song as an attack on the mind-destroying banality and routine of the American public school week. No kidding.

How many can you recognize?

  • Lil B
  • LMFAO
  • Flo-Rida
  • SKRILLEX
  • V-Nasty
  • Ca$h Out
  • Chief Keef
  • Rebecca Black

To illustrate no point whatsoever, here’s another list of musicians people once wished would just go away. And so they did!

  • The Druids
  • The Remains
  • The Inmates
  • The Fugs
  • Bubble Puppy
  • The Shaggs
  • The Outsiders
  • Jan Dismas Zelenka [Ed: Crikes, he even knows baroque composers no one has heard of!]
