although they've come very close on a number of occasions.
Though he's only got 1 album out, right?
is clearly best tune on the album
'My Name is Jonas' is the quintessential Weezer song, to me.
Sweat Leaf! Into The Void! etc!
They're not the only band that's spent a career trying to reach the sheer badassitude of that riff. And the ending is fucking phenomenal.
I feel like I've been missing an important part of my life for so long.
Should have kept him. Imagine last resort with some brass!
"CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES, *PARP, PARP*
THIS IS MY LAST RESORT!
DON'T GIVE A FUCK IF I CUT MY ARM BLEEDING *TROMBONE SOLO*
Part of me really wants to hear this. Part of me is struggling to breathe through holding in laughter now.
It literally blows my mind. I can't process it. Bit like Ulysses.
His name's Coby Dick, Mr Dick if you're nasty
Rock the mic with a voice that's raaaaaaspy.
MY GOD-GIVEN TALENT IS TO ROCK ALL THE NATIONS *extended brass improv sequence*
wrong. Fake Sound of Progress and Kobrakai are both better. and so is Five is a Four Lettered Word. And The Handsome Life of Swing.
That is the only part of this album I remember.

King Crimson? What are you, gay? Take that back.
Red is better.
is probably their 'quintessential' track.
and by that measure you could probably throw in Daniel Johnston as well.
There are like 3 better songs on that album, 4 on their second and 2 on the third that never got released
That aside, I would just like to point out that three days ago was the ninth anniversary of that albums release. NINE YEARS. How did you celebrate?
I stroked it and cried
I went to Hilary's house in the dead of night and lurked about in a bush outside her bedroom window.
Just for old time's sake.
Long Way South
On the second
Always and Forever
Maybe you're listening to the versions that didn't feature Alvin from The Chipmunks on vocals...
was far and away the best thing they ever did.
As much as I don't love them, Kasabian.
Name a better one, hmmmm?
As good as it is, I would say that Trust was as good if not better.
Then there is Intact, and Not Sleeping Around. And then probably Who Goes First?
Easily done. X
^ actual answer
Watching 30-something men argue about Ned's Atomic Dustbin evokes the same pity and awe as tramps wrestling over a sandwich
I can take most things but I draw a line at anyone being disparaging about 80's/90's Midlands-based popular music.
Bollocks to everything, you fucks
'Not Sleeping Around'!
Going to listen to them now, I was like 1 when they released that. Is it weird how much I LOVE them?
hmmmmmm.... close one.
I guess the closest contender would be 'Darts of Pleasure', but I still think 'Jacqueline' just pips it.
If you count The Three EPs as an album anyway.
Starship and The Human Being Lawnmower say so.
Red Eyes and Tears is the best BRMC song and This Is The One is the best Stone Roses song.
LOTS OF ROT GOT TALKED.
You'll be wrong, whichever one it is.
The best BRMC track is Whatever Happened To My Rock'n'Roll. The best Stone Roses track is Made of Stone.
I SPEAK IN TROOF, NOT ROT.
I'm going to make you look silly.
I agree that the two songs you mentioned are absolute belters, but I think REAT and TITO win! For the acronyms if nothing else.
go and sit in dunce's corner with bamnam
fucking hell, 100 broken windows. you cuuuuunt. ;(
buuut then i realised that disorder is definitely my favourite joy division song (because ceremony doesnt count)
but it seems to have been accepted... 'Disorder' is a beautiful song.
was going to post exactly this thread! The Shins is my contribution, and Coldplay was a good shout above.
by quite some distance
Turn the Page is pretty fucking amazing.
And Kinesis used to use it as their walk on track
Ace of Base
And, as much as I find it hard to come to terms with, Future of the Left. I love the new album as a whole more than 'Curses', but 'The Lord hates a coward' is fucking monumental.
get back in your corner!
'Loser', 'New pollution' and 'Nobody's fault but my own'.
And 'Loser' is the best of those. I'm not trying to be controversial. I merely think Beck is a bit shite.
Well go back to ignoring me then, you callous bastards.
Roots Manuva too. That very first track on his debut still sends shivers up my spine.
...the fuck? Witness is track four. That's not even as good as Join The Dots.
'Brand new second hand' is. And the opener is called 'Movements'.
You know, I always thought that was his second for some reason.
That said, it's still not as good as Join The Dots - even with the golden line about dancing on your sarnie.
literally impossible to not smile when you hear that line.
Luckily I checked myself before I wrecked myself.
I'd forgotten how fucking excellent that track is
if Los Angeles is their debut album, I'm not sure. excellent track either way.
maybe not..but its my fave song of theres!
I watched the whole reading set on iPlayer and they've tried to make this song more comlicated...
Twilight Sad (until Forget the Night Ahead is released proper of course)
You still Fail for denigrating Bullet in the Head, though.
I really like spirit they've vanished though, one of their best songs definitely.
How the hell has this thread got so far without them?
They'll never top Like Eating Glass. Nor will most other bands.
But after being shot down in flames for my other choices, felt best to avoid it in case some idiothole honestly thought 'Two More Years' was superior.
She's Hearing Voices?
SO Here We Are?
This Modern Love?
Like Eating Glass is a cracker, for sure, but to say that nothing else on that album beats it is madness!
two of them great songs
for me, none of them come near the visceral release of the album opener, it's also a first exposure to the bloc party "like EA-TING" melodic motif, which tires later in the album but sounds great when you first hear it.
you can definitely argue against it though; i just think like eating glass is possibly the best album opener of all time.
its their best song by a mile
It's more of a build up to a pretty good solo.
album yes..track no.
So much this. The first cymbal crash in that song is probably my favourite musical moment of the decade.
Radio Free Europe will never be topped.
at least until their new un comes out
Formed a Band
My Little Brother is also very excellent (I can take or leave Emily Kane). But I'm happy enough saying that My Little Brother is equal to, but does not better, Formed A Band, and so I think this call is a legitimate one.
