|Radio Free Europe is a blistering way to open a debut album. Absolute bona fide classic. |
|Some classic ones that set out the style of the band immediately:|
Pearl Jam 'Once'
Black Sabbath 'Black Sabbath'
Massive Attack 'Safe from Harm'
Mercury Rev 'Chasing a Bee'
|I know you'll poo poo it but you have to have Rock N Roll Star in there as well. |
|Massive Attack - Safe From Harm|
Proper case of ‘fuck me this is amazing!’
|Oasis not for me|
|Some of my favorites:|
Beastie Boys - "Rhymin and Stealin"
The Black Crowes - "Twice As Hard"
Black Sabbath - "Black Sabbath"
Cream - "I Feel Free"
Dave Matthews Band - "The Best of What's Around"
Guns N' Roses - "Welcome to the Jungle"
Jane's Addiction - "Up the Beach"
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - "Purple Haze"
Korn - "Blind"
Led Zeppelin - "Good Times Bad Times"
Metallica - "Hit the Lights"

Radiohead - "You"
Rage Against the Machine - "Bombtrack"
System of a Down - "Suite-Pee"
The Velvet Underground - "Sunday Morning"
|Haven't checked this list in a while - I started it while procrastinating work and never got around to finishing it. I have a playlist of stuff I'll add here eventually, but thanks y'all for your great suggestions! I think Black Sabbath is maybe the best example of an opening song on a debut album telling you everything you need to know about the group.|
