The Chicago Reader’s Best of Chicago round-up is in for 09. Let the arguing and squabbling begin over the lil’ rag’s choices.

When it comes to music, we can’t help but agree with the perspective of Radio Free Chicago:

Or was this an obscure/controversial choice by design to grab The Reader a little attention? Then again, maybe this was a much needed attempt to save the publication a little street cred after the audience poll resulted in a winner of Poi Dog Pondering (ouch!).

Here’s the video they offer as evidence for or against?
