"Hunger Strike" is NOT Pearl Jam!  It was written by Temple of the Dog.  Pearl Jam wasnt even a band at this point, Eddie Vedder just happened to be one of the singers.  And how come nobody thinks Soundgarden wrote the song?  Chris Cornell was the other singer.  [rant off]

He's Misstra Know-It-All is a mind-blowingly wonderful song. Hell, all of Innervisions is mind-blowing.

jump by van halen is wildly overrated, but it is still an amazing song.  i could listen to just jump all day 1022.gif

Van Halen's debut album is one of the most kickass rock albums ever.  ph34r.gif

Yeah, that. It is hard to remember, but NO ONE sounded like that at the time.

Amen to that. I can't decide if that song is my favorite on that album, or "Visions"...they are both wonderful.

After you get those four, get Live at Leeds and The Who By Numbers.  The former is seminal, the second is an underrated classic.

Here's my random one for today:

The Band's song "It Makes No Difference" (especially the Last Waltz version) is one of the most devastatingly sad and beautiful songs ever put to tape. I miss Rick Danko.

Totally agree, although the Last Waltz film and album version are slightly different - in the film it is edited slightly and sped up (as with the whole film).

The Band don't get enough recognition these days.  So few people have heard of them compared with other big name bands of the same era.

and

'Stage Fright' is an underrated Band album

On another note, I need to listen to all the CDs/LPs my housemate has lend me - lots of cool stuff from Gary Wilson to Gillian Welch to Robyn Hitchcock to John Renbourn

"King Harvest (has surely come)" by The Band is one of the greatest songs ever recorded! Richard Manuel's voice gives me goosebumps. I love the way the bass, organ and drums sound, it all sounds so warm... Robbie Robertson's guitar solo at the end of the song is pure genius... it's not how many notes you play, it's how you play them!
Oh, and I agree with Mystic Slipperman, "It Makes No Difference" is a beautiful song!
