Wolfgang Van Halen, at 29 years old, the youngest member and the bassist for Van Halen, made a statement in his official Twitter page about remaking of Rolling Stone’s ‘500 Greatest Album of All Time.’ He actually found it wrong to make such a list since music, according to him, should be subjective.
Rolling Stone published a list 17 years ago, ranking albums from best to the least good and called it the ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time.’ The list has albums from different genres and different eras of music history. The Top 5 consists of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and The Beach Boys.
On its official Twitter page, Rolling Stone said they remade the list and stated this:
“Our list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time was originally published in 2003. But no list is definitive, so we decided to remake it from scratch. The voters included Beyoncé, Stevie Nicks, and many more.”
Wolfgang Van Halen took Twitter to respond to the making of this list. He objected to the idea of ranking albums since he thinks art should be subjective. Wolf stated that people should listen to music as they wish rather than fighting over what is best or worse.
He wrote this on the post:
“Lists like this can be fun/frustrating, but it’s important to remember that
Stop arguing with people over what you think is the best and just listen to whatever the fuck you want, Twitter people. It’s so much easier that way.”
