by The Jesus and Mary Chain
(64 plays) | (0 fans)

This was the first single off The Jesus and Mary Chain's fourth studio album, "Honey's Dead." It attracted some controversy for the lyrics "I want to die just like Jesus Christ", and "I want to die just like JFK". Banned by Top of the Pops, the track peaked at #10 in the UK charts.: https://genius.com/The-jesus-and-mary-chain-reverence-lyrics

Cherub Rock
by The Smashing Pumpkins
(1 play) | (0 fans)

"One thing that was lost over time, even by "Mellon Collie," was Corgan’s ability, or at least desire, to write rock songs that were aggressive and anthemic and pummeling and affirming all at once....Here, Corgan bottled everything into one unimpeachable five minute song that was simultaneously a perfect hard rock song and a perfect pop song.":https://www.stereogum.com/1983030/the-10-best-smashing-pumpkins-songs/franchises/10-best-songs/

Where Is My Mind?
by Pixies
(362 plays) | (1 fan)

“Let’s just go by the phrase ‘Where is My Mind?’ alone,” Joey Santiago says. “It relates to disenfranchised people, and there’s certainly a lot of them, so it unites them. It’s like, you’re not the only f**king disenfranchised one, you know? It validates your feelings of being not alone, as someone else is singing about it.”: https://www.dazeddigital.com/music/article/42783/1/pixies-where-is-my-mind-fight-club-covers-classic-song-retrospective

Lit Up
by The National
(209 plays) | (0 fans)

The essence of Matt Berninger's lyrical themes has essentially remained the same since The National's early days. "Sometimes, I want to remind myself of ideas I've written, so I write them again in a different way," he told American Songwriter. "Usually that idea is one of three things: I'm freaked out about the world, I want to be a good husband and dad and I'm trying but sometimes I'm a bit of an asshole, and I'm sorry. So it's either: I'm scared, I'm sorry, or I love you. It's one of those three things, almost always.": https://songmeanings.com/songs/view/3530822107858540518/
