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)

Brilliant solo. A great addition to the medley.
Another short, average song.
Great song. Chills by this point in the medley every time.
Quick and nice little number with quirky lyrics :)
Not as good as Mean Mr. Mustard, but it's a good song, enjoyable and has a bit of The Who about it. Works well in the context of the medley.
A nice counterpart to Mean Mr. Mustard. Great guitar work, lead and rhythm.
I think Ramones might have liked it.
Hard and fast
She's so good lookin but she looks like a man! Love John's wacky humor
