Dear Cougars

Dear Cougars, Take your horse blinders off! Your latest  issue list Kanye West, The Jonas Brothers,  Taylor Swift, and Britney Spears as the  artists of the month. This excludes the facts:  Metallica’s Death Magnetic lasted on  the  charts longer then any of those artists,  (excluding the massive Fearless by Taylor  Swift) and AC/DC’s Black Ice was on the number one spot two weeks, and Slipknot God’s Wrath placed 2nd on the charts, with Kelly  Clarkson and Now! 30 ramming the same songs you just heard down your throats. The fact that  you haven’t mentioned any of these bands feels a lot like a snub to me. Just because I can’t hear any of these songs on Z‐100 or the new radio station  that bought out K‐Rock doesn’t mean that they are  any less important! If you’re going to comment on music, comment on all the music!
