okay, so, issues:





just kidding. i've pretty much given up.

any word on the maclean's job?

I, for one, will never give up.

Humbly:

Zep - When the Levee Breaks, Babe I'm Going to Leave You

Who - Baba O'Riley (even though it's been hugely overplayed since Summer of Sam/American Beauty, it's still their best).

Stones - Under My Thumb (I refuse to argue about this).

Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees

Oasis - Wonderwall, Supersonic, Talk Tonight, D'Yer Know What I Mean (I'd keep Acquiesce from yours--the rest can go, though a Top 10 is probably more appropriate).

Hip - Nautical Disaster (their best).

Maclean's? Sweet...
