These lists were compiled in order for you to get a better understanding of why we (as in the main Demolish staff writers) say the things we do about bands—whether it be in reviews and or feature articles.
By reviewing these lists, you can see who and what we (as in individuals) favor and hopefully you will get a general idea of our journalistic personalities.
