One look at the cover of permanently beach-going Andy Pemberton's first (and last) issue of Spin, and you completely understand why he was so quickly sacked. Beyonce? Beyonce. Last we checked, this publication was for Fall Out Boy fans and a handful of optimistic readers hoping for a dollop of Drive-By Truckers coverage. Are those people just not reading anymore? Did Pitchfork win? Apparently so. Beyonce. Beyonce.

And really we'd be remiss if we didn't address the horrid "25 Hottest Stars Under 25" bit. Seriously? We already have one New York magazine. That's more than enough.
