There are a bunch I like here: NMH will probably get my vote but I like "Rebel Girl" (actually a little surprising for this list, which is p light on punk rock), "Dreams Tonite", "Knives Out", and "Impossible Germany".

Built to spill doing battle with archers of loaf. There’s some other good songs, but this is nowhere near as strong as the last portion

Web in Front is the GOAT

Seeing Other People

kornrulez6969, Thursday, 6 June 2019 14:04 (three months ago) link

damn this is tough! I went with Stillness is the Move just because that song was huge for me (and all of indie-rock I guess) the year it came out, and it's still great. deepest apologies to Modest Mouse, Archers, Grimes, and Japandroids in particular.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 6 June 2019 14:26 (three months ago) link

Someone please enlighten me to what is so good about “Web in Front”.

Mr. Snrub, Thursday, 6 June 2019 15:44 (three months ago) link

it's a good song with a good hook

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 6 June 2019 15:50 (three months ago) link

and it's a much better song than "creature comfort" wow

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 6 June 2019 15:51 (three months ago) link

1 yeah yeah yeahs - cheated hearts
2 archers of loaf - web in front
3 neutral milk hotel - king of carrot flowers pt 1
4 radiohead - true love waits

5 built to spill - car

Deerhunter's 'Nothing Ever Happened' is huge.

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Thursday, 6 June 2019 16:59 (three months ago) link

Between that, Blonde Redhead and NMH imo

Good lyrics and an outro that can be sung in a round

Jeff the grown man (voodoo chili), Thursday, 6 June 2019 17:37 (three months ago) link

it's on the Mallrats soundtrack

billstevejim, Thursday, 6 June 2019 17:41 (three months ago) link

Not sure why Web In Front is considered the best Archers song, they have plenty that are better. Lowest Part Is Free being first among many.

I wouldn't have guessed that's where I would've ended up when I started reading through, but yeah.

Howlin' Oates - 'Wang Can't Dang for That (No Can Doodle)' (Old Lunch), Thursday, 6 June 2019 18:37 (three months ago) link

i've always kinda liked Deep Blue, maybe i'm a sucker for 90s nostalgia.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.
