you're right about that, i've been wondering about that
'elitist-i-saw-it-back-in-1985-when-it-wasn't-a-sello-out -attitude' myself
as well. but i still think that's missing the point in the original topic.

q-burn had compiled the list in the sense mentioned above. heck, i love the
beatles' 'revolver' (like a couple of millions of other people do too, i
guess) but i would'n't play the fab four within a deep funk set. so, in that
sense i'd find the 'tomorrow never knows' request a bit odd and funny. and
that would have nothing to do with the song being too popular or mullet
music or hippie bullshit or whatever.
tool guys would find a person in the first row shouting 'play paranoid'
during their live set a bit annoying/funny as well, methinks. :)
