25 Songs that Make Me Feel Good, But Suggest I'm Too Hostile for Radio

I always fall into these traps. I was asked by someone at work for a supposed "fun thing" to list 25 songs that make feel good. This co-worker said the song should be "something that can bring you out of a bad mood or put you in a positive mood." Here is the 25 songs I wrote down (with links to You Tube vids of the songs):
  1. Chuck Berry "Roll Over Beethoven"
  2. Bob Dylan "Subterranean Homesick Blues"
  3. The Beatles "Revolution"
  4. The Rolling Stones "Satisfaction"
  5. The Who "My Generation"
  6. The Monkees "I’m Not Your Steppin Stone"
  7. The Music Machine "Talk Talk"
  8. The Seeds "Pushin Too Hard"
  9. Steppenwolf "Born To Be Wild"
  10. Sly & the Family Stone "I Wanna Take You Higher"
  11. The MC5 "Kick Out the Jams"
  12. Black Sabbath "Paranoid"
  13. Blue Oyster Cult "Cities On Flame With Rock and Roll"
  14. Grand Funk "Rock and Roll Soul"
  15. Alice Cooper "School’s Out"
  16. Queen "We Will Rock You"
  17. The Sex Pistols "God Save The Queen"
  18. Bruce Springsteen "Badlands"
  19. The Ramones "Rock & Roll High School"
  20. Van Halen "And the Cradle Will Rock"
  21. Joan Jett "I Love Rock and Roll"
  22. Quiet Riot "Mental Health (Bang Your Head)
  23. Twisted Sister "We’re Not Gonna Take It"
  24. Beastie Boys "Fight For Your Right To Party"
  25. Nirvana "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
What I didn't know was this stuff was going to be given to the format consultant, as suggestions for possible addition to the stations playlist. The consultant has branded me "too hostile for radio." This guy feels that the station should attract a women between the ages of 25 - 60, non-smokers, who drive Volvos and won't let their children watch SpongeBob Square Pants or Thomas the Tank Engine because of the "excessive violence." These women our radio station is supposed to target also have All-Bran and prune juice for breakfast and wear white cotton panties. I might frighten these women.
My question is "What would be wrong with frightening those women?" Mwu-HAHAHAHAHA! I think they would deserve it.
Also I was told by a male co-work that he thought I was a danger to the company because of my hostile music choices. He also doesn't like my blog. He is a really square white guy, who likes talk radio.
Now, my question is how are my music suggestion anymore hostile than the stuff collected from the talk goons by Media Matters?
I guess having "hostile" musical taste is just one more thing that makes me Super-Villain of the Ozarks. Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
