CNN trying to get the hip demographic?

In last month's Details (don't ask) CNN took out a full page ad listing "Anderson Cooper's On-The-Road Playlist", I guess to tout Cooper's hipness and to get more viewers (I know, he writes for Details so it's a decent place for his publicity). Anyway, his list has a nice combo of punk, old indie, new indie, and various old school songs:

The Clash - "This Is Radio Clash"
Scissor Sisters - "Comfortably Numb"
Johnny Cash - "Folsom Prison Blues"
Radiohead - "Karma Police"
Sugar - "Needle Hits E"
Ike & Tina Turner - "Proud Mary"
Nouvelle Vague - "Love Will Tear Us Apart"
Interpol - "Slow Hands"
Arcade Fire - "Wake Up"
Arctic Monkeys - "I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor"
Mary J. Blige - "No More Drama"
Devo - "Freedom of Choice"
Elvis Costello - "Pump It Up"
The Hives - "Hate To Say I Told You So"
Abbey Lincoln - "Nature Boy"
