I love lists. Top 10 this, top 20 that. Love 'em. But, there are two problems with most lists that are put out by media outlets. First is that they try to make their list "interesting" by, instead of just picking who really should be #1, topping their list with an "interesting" choice. The second is that they far too often weigh the more recent entries to the list too heavily.
Thus are the problems with VH1's list of the top 200 pop culture icons.
