I just got done suffering through "Modern Romance" by the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, and I notice now that there is a "hidden track" at the end of the song. It's time to get rid of this extremely overt trick. There is nothing more annoying than getting one of those songs with a hidden track in your shuffle. It's difficult to fast forward with most players these days, so usually I just skip to the next song. Plus, it's just stupid now that it's been done a million times. If you absolutely have to have an unidentified song on your record, just create a track but don't list it on the cover art and leave it untitled. Why anyone would feel the need to do that I don't know, but at least then we don't have to listen to a minute of silence.
