you've obviously never been there when i've taken over the juke box.  a little "carry on my wayward son," followed by "more than feeling," then for the indie kids, "mr. blue sky," then i bring the set to a close with "wheel in the sky."  all the while chugging the schlitz and rawking out.

Well what did you expect, it IS a black comedy.

It is a black comedy NOW. It wasn't intended to be. At the time - it was a straight up fright fest - with a little social commentary thrown in to illustrate Romero's genius.
 The best moments of the entire series are the first 15 minutes of the Dawn re-make. I think it's brilliant. Too bad the remainder of the movie tends to devolve into an MTV-like video.

What have you been smoking?  It always was a black comedy.  Romero said so back in '79.

i don't know about the rest of my top 5.  it'd be hard to narrow down three others, but i know that those are DEFINITELY my #1 and #2.
 
 aerosmith is more because a) they're really bad and b) what they've done recently compared to what they did back in the 70s, but this isn't strictly limited to what they did during a certain time frame, is it?

I was forced to listen by the fact that I was living in a small town.  Most everyone else loved those acts, so if I was at a party I had to endure others' crappy music.

1.  Journey
 1.  Asia
 1.  Foreigner
 1.  Styx
 1.  REO Speedwagon
 1.  Kansas
 
 Because I defy you to tell them apart.  I mean, how is it possible to be this overwrought and bombastic, and  still  have no distinguishing characteristics?
 
 100% of the other candidates suggested are not even in the same league of horribleness as these arena rock drones.  In fact, virtually all of them have at least a few songs that qualify as guilty pleasures, if not true classics.  And a few of those nominations, well, the pathetic attempt at trendiness by those dissing them to show how hip they are (we'll protect the names of the guilty) is more reprehensible than the worst excesses of the sellouts I listed above.
