I have nothing against Cold Play but I hope Paper Planes finds it's way off the shelves sooner rather than later.

Another example, OutKast's Hey Ya!, Eminem's Lose Yourself and Stan made it in the Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time despite being less than 10 years old.
Not sure what RS was smoking when they made that list. "Hey Ya!" was one of the weaker songs on The Love Below (great album) and I don't know anybody that has ever played "Lose Yourself" after 8-Mile stopped showing. And "Stan" was a great concept for a song but I don't think that a song where the chorus is sampled from another artists song should qualify.

Was it greatest songs of all time or greatest singles?
