End-of-year tradition (and, to be honest, pressing deadlines on work assignments) dictates that, in lieu of new posts, we offer you this round-up of Snobsite’s finest moments over the course of 2005, its inaugural year. The headline above, as any Rock Snob worth his salt knows, is an allusion to the curious title of Jethro Tull’s first greatest hits album (cover below). If some Snob out there has any idea what “M.U.” stands for, let us know.
