Why don't you have any of the VHS top 100 Charts?

There are a number of TV shows that count down the 100 greatest songs about... dentists, or whatever. In the UK these are shown on Channel 4 while in the US they are on VHS1. After the programs are shown the charts are sometimes available on the internet. We have not included any of these lists, despite the fact that they claim to solicit votes from "the public". The reason is that most of these programs post some list of, say 130 candidates (that they have interviews and footage for) and the public voting only affects the order within that list.

In addition, judging by the results, the participants are hardly an unbiased sample. Results often appear to have been obtained by "ballot stuffing" by fans of particular acts.
