In Defense of Embarrassing Music

Ann Althouse comments on the recent revelation that Steve Jobs' iTunes library over-represented the 60's and 70's by a considerable margin, and contained nothing beyond the year 1989:
What if your iPod contents were splattered across the headlines? Would you be embarrassed?
I would, to a degree. In my defense, though, any list of ~25,000 songs will invariably contain some duds (from albums that were inconsistent at best) as well as some guilty pleasures. Why should mine be any different?

I often suspected that The A.V. Club's "Random Rules" participants must do some serious paring down of their library specifically to avoid this sort of embarrassment. I mean no one's taste is that good.
