* FanonDiscontinuity: Some of the people who hate "Closer" instead pretended that "24K Magic" was his #1 song on his Best Hit Songs of 2016 list.

* BrokenBase: Given how about 95% of his fans hated it, putting "Closer" by The Chainsmokers at #1 on his "Best of 2016" list was is possibly is most controversial decision yet. Half of his fans admitted that they hated the song, but felt that it was Todd's opinion and they had no right to complain. The other half got very angry, stating that song was an absolute mess and that Todd must have been out of his mind to put it at #1... some went so far as to stop the video right after the honorable mentions so they could pretend his #2 pick ("24K Magic" by Bruno Mars) was his #1 pick.

* BrokenBase: Given how much his fans hated "Closer" by The Chainsmokers, they were NOT happy when he ended up putting it at #1 on his "Best of 2016" list.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Many fans (and [[WordOfGod Todd himself]]) felt that many of his 2013 were overly negative and, in Todd's words, "hard to watch" due to a combination of 2013 being a really bad year for music as well as [[RealitySubtext personal issues that resulted in a more aggressive review style]]. Todd [[AuthorsSavingThrow took the criticism to heart]] and tried to "have more fun and be more positive" in 2014, even though he thought that year was even worse than the last for music. [[note]] Interestingly, 2013 supplied two of his most positive reviews, "Thrift Shop vs. Suit & Tie" and "Best Song Ever," the first songs he's reviewed since "Somebody That I Used to Know" and "Ni**as in Paris" to make his year-end best-of list...and, to date, the last.

** Also with the Chainsmokers as a whole. Two songs of theirs have made different worst lists ("#Selfie" was #2 on his Worst of 2014 list and "Don't Let Me Down" was #4 on his Worst of 2016 list), but then "Closer" became the first song he's ever given a full review to actually top his year-end best list.

** In his ''Top Ten Best Hit Songs of 2011'', he says that ''[[Music/FosterThePeople Pumped Up Kicks]]'' probably isn't about a school shooting. The band has actually stated that it is written from the point of view of a potential school shooter, with Columbine itself having been in mind, and one of the members of the band has a cousin who survived the massacre.

** In his "7 Years" review, he makes the common mistake of referring to the singer as Lukas Graham when Lukas has stated several times that his name is just Lukas Forchammer.

** In his "7 Years" review, the line where he refers to Denmark as a "backwater swampland" is accompanied by an image of a rotting sheep in a bog with its spine sticking out that's rather hard to look at.
