Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some artists can have several thousand ratings)

Great influential band that is highly underrated on BEA. Their debut is incredible featuring hardcore and reggae songs quite the mix. Several years later they mixed it up again on I Against I which features more metal and funk. They never broke through commercially but you better believe the underground knew all about them.
Of course punk would flourish in D.C. Bad Brains was a big part of the reason why. These guys played faster than everyone, until they slowed it down for one of their reggae tracks that is. Bad Brains would also go on to kick start the NYC hardcore scene after their unofficial ban in several D.C. clubs convinced them to set off for more depraved pastures.
Your feedback for Bad Brains
A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
