Why hide the old Ludwig van?

So, I was browsing around Last.fm and saw a counter of the songs most frequently erased from the scrobblecharts. Most of them on the charts were the usual Top 40 crapfests (I Kissed A Girl, Womanizer) but right there, up there, was the 4th movement of Ludwig van’s 9th symphony.

That pissed me off, a lot. Why is there a reason to hide the old Ludwig van? He made music, unlike most people today. Too self conscious to be seen listening to music, last.fm people? O, tempora.
