Bring the Light by The Smashing Pumpkins

The song is made cool by little squealy guitar bits going on in the background, which gets steamrolled under Jimmy Chamberlin’s ‘roided-up drum work.

Cut Me In Two by Rocky Votolato

A Stripped-down and subtle acoustic folk set.

Speakers Push the Air by Pretty Girls Make Graves

A direct and absolute celebration of music. No need to express this love in round about ways.

Laser Eyes by Blood Brothers

This video says it all: The Blood Brothers – Laser Life (Live)

Boom Boom by John Lee Hooker

His guitar playing is pretty raw, even by blues standards, and that along with his resonant voice makes him one of the best out of the Mississippi Tri-delta area.

Hit the Road Jack by Ray Charles

Whether he wrote the final version of this song or not, who knows. Honestly, who really cares? Ray Charles owns this piece, and his good friend Percy has written plenty of other wonderful songs.

The Bit by Melvins

Opening up with a sitar and then exploding into King Buzzo’s sludgy, dropped-D riffage. Awesome.
