BEPs update: Most annoying song ever

Bad news for my beloved Black Eyed Peas (the best worst band ever). Their REVERSE GENIUS magnum opus, “My Humps” (a poetical homage to the singer’s “lovely lady lumps”) has been named most annoying song ever by the readers of Rolling Stone, the most annoying magazine ever.

The top 5:
1. Black Eyed Peas, “My Humps”
2. Los Del Rio, “Macarena”
3. Baha Men, “Who Let The Dogs Out”
4. Celine Dion, “My Heart Will Go On”
5. Nickelback, “Photograph”

Meatloaf and local boys Semisonic also make the top 20.

Interestingly enough, the Chili’s babyback ribs song is nowhere to be found.

*Did you know that Apple is coming out with a music player that is also a PHONE? It is called the iPhone.
*The MusicBrainz database (buzzwords: open source and community generated!) is being integrated into the BBC music site; it’ll loop in track listings and discographies. More here.
*Music playing widgets! They sound boring! And maybe they are. ReverbNation is a widget for the people. The people with bands. Who want other people to hear their music. [via] On a side note, who knew so many entrepreneurs would actually be in business MAKING WIDGETS? The next new economy hotspot: thing-a-majigs.
*Remember how the Smashing Pumpkins were OK again for about 12 seconds back when their web site was all user generated and shit? Well, they’re on the outs again after releasing four different versions of their latest album. However, I’m not really sure how big a deal this is. Are there really a lot of Pumpkins completists out there? [via PSFK]
