I disagree with what you say, but defend your right to praise it...

What follows is a list of people and things that are pretty much universally reviled in the popular mind. Your challenge is to provide a cogent defense/mitigating factor as to why these things don't suck as badly as popularly perceived. Don't worry if some of these things are off your cultural radar; I have provided explanations where necessary, but believe me, if you know who #2 and #5 are, you understand why they are on this list.

1) Yoko Ono's musical career
2) Cold K (Prolific Seattle grafitti tagger)
3) The film "Ishtar"
4) Microsoft's "clippy" avatar (aka the paperclip that says "It looks like you're trying to write a resume")
5) Manny Theiner (Pittsburgh indie-rock promoter)
6) Weezer's "Pinkerton" album
7) Ticketmaster service charges
8) Hummers (the car, not the slang term)
9) Carrot Top (the "comedian", not the Indie label)
10) Roger Daltrey solo albums
