iTunes 1986 playlist - http://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/1986/id124997500 - I don't remember 1986 in music being quite this shitty. Where's P.I.L.'s "Rise"? Master of Puppets? Black Flag's Who's Got the 10½? Candy Apple Grey? Tinderbox by Siouxsie? Cure's Standing on a Beach? Smiths' The Queen Is Dead? 2 Live Crew? R.E.M.'s Lifes Rich Pageant? Big Black? XTC's "Dear God"? Bad Brains' I Against I? It's like my music never happened. FU iTunes.
