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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

It is perfect, a perfect rock song. Yes, it is so much better than so much classic OR modern rock radio. Where I live, I have never heard this (or anything like it) on the radio. Seriously, one of the best rock songs ever recorded.
great song, not as kickass as blackest eyes but still awesome
Wow... pretty close to perfection.
This is one of the best songs of all time. That is all that needs to be said. Take every song on a typical rock radio station and this song will be head and shoulders over all but maybe five of the tracks.
