Allow these questions
Stack Exchange as a whole considers these questions to be on-topic.
I would also agree. As a programmer, I will often search something on Google, even if it's simple, just to see what Stack Overflow has to say about it. I could Google
python remove item from list, and read the documentation. But, instead, I can find a well written answer, with examples, specific to the question I'm asking, that I know that almost 400 people agree with.
I don't have to look around and find the exact thing I'm looking for on a webpage that would print across 50 pages when printed out.
Rephrasing the original Stack Overflow announcement to fit this site:
It is by music fans, for music fans, with the ultimate intent of collectively increasing the sum total of good music knowledge in the world. No matter what music you listen to, or what genre you prefer. Better music appreciation is our goal.
Downvote when necessary
That being said, I think questions can get too simple.
Who are the members of the Beatles? would make for a terrible question. However, I would consider the question
not useful instead of
off-topic, and think it should be downvoted.
