Rating metrics: 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)

This track is rated in the top 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 90.2/100, a mean average of 89.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.5/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.0.

If this sounds nuts now, post punk, grunge and death metal etc., what must it have sounded like in 1967?

when the universe is facing its heat death in 13 billion years, this is the last song that should be played.

Suck on my ding dong existence.

Great song and maybe the greatest song made in rock music, but I'm pretty intrigued to know what the lyrics are about. I mean, are they just meaningful and disturbing the way they are or they could be metaphorical to something?

This song is awesome and all, but it can be a chore to listen to sometimes.
