Not-So-Greatest Hits

I've been hanging on to this one for a while since a friend first kicked it my way, but now the time has come to bring you The 9 Most Unnecessary Greatest Hits Albums of All Time. (Right here, Shocho would point out here that the words "of All Time" are completely unnecessary in that title.)

This article brings the funny, from beginning to end; from the no-additional-comment-required-for-maximum-hilarity that is Nelson's hairdos (#8); to the observation that Tone Loc's album could have more accurately been titled "Wild Thing and Other Hit" (singular; #5); to the brilliant Amazon review of The Best of Shaquille O'Neal (#1), hoping that one day he releases a love songs album called 'Love Shaq'.

Sadly, I feel the need to confess that I actually owned "The Return of Bruno," one of the 80s Bruce Willis albums that his "Master Hits" were ultimately culled from. On vinyl. Shame, I know, but what can I say -- Bruce Willis was the shit back then, and I what the hell did I know at that age?

Don't look down your nose at me, secretly hiding the shame of your DayGlo leg warmers.

Three... fewer... songs.

Bruce Willis is still the shit. He's just a bit nuttier.

I did borrow and listen to Tone Loc's album and Young MC's "Stone Cold Rhymin'" album back in the '80s. I did not, however, actually invest my own money into either one.
