Music News, Top 5s / Top 10s

No Comments sure does like its lists. In the past the site has tackled the 50 Worst Songs Ever, Rock Stars Who’ve Caught Fire Onstage, the 50 Craziest Pop Stars Ever… and now they’ve drawn up a pretty interesting list of the 20 Biggest Record Company Screw-Ups of All Time.
Included in the list:
- Geffen’s ongoing faith that Axl Rose is ever going to be done producing Chinese Democracy; an estimated $13 million has been spent on the project so far
- MCA investing $2.2 million in Irish singer Carly Hennessy, whose debut album sold 378 copies in its first three months on release
- Columbia letting pre-fame 50 Cent and Alicia Keys go
- Decca signing the Tremeloes but passing on The Beatles
