It seems to me their research is lacking in a LOT of areas, and that they seem to promote the saaaaame darn bands, over and over...*sigh*

An NME article lacking research? That makes a change... I suppose there's a reason why many say NME's where music journalism goes to die these days
Curiously enough I did come across this earlier expecting a high entry from Frank and was quite surprised when he wasn't on it.

Shame on the NME for missing that.
Fair play to Willie Nelson though for being in the top 10.

Actually, to be fair to NME, they're just taking what's been written on here. Would like to know how they've gathered these facts though
