My Nomination for the Best App Innovation of 2012

Federico Viticci has reviewed a new app for iOS called Party Monster. It’s essentially a music queuing and playlist creation app, and it’s pretty decent. But that’s not why I’m linking to it. This is the reason:

One more thing: Party Monster has a setting to refuse playing Nickelback. If you add a Nickelback song to the Library, not only will it be grayed out, upon tapping Party Monster will also pop up a dialog saying you chose to exclude Nickelback.

On the one hand, this is absolutely one of the best innovations of 2012. On the other, why do you have Nickelback in your library to begin with?
