BP: 11 Songs We Found On The Executive iPod

British Petroleum (BP) officials announced Thursday that they had successfully capped the largest and most devastating oil spill in U.S. history. You know, a mere 85 days, 11 casualties, 184 million gallons and thousands of dead or oil-covered animals later.

A tense 48-hour waiting period to observe whether the cap will hold began immediately following BP's proclamation. Time will tell whether yesterday's news was indeed good news or just another case of too-little-too-late.

One of Rocks Off's shadow operatives at BP headquarters in London happened to find an iPod lying around one of the boardrooms shortly after the announcement. We're not exactly sure to whom it belongs, but then again, it could be just about any of 'em.
