    I'll do you one better.
    Suede's b-sides were released as a compilation and that compilation I feel sometimes is their best album....

    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    The seldom-seen title track that was left off the record. They really needed all the white noise so it was the odd man out on Frances The Mute

    Meh, Grass is a better song, as is Summer's Cauldron, and Dear God was an A-Side that was left off the initial press of the album but included on later versions.

    Dude all the Going Blank Again b-sides (including ironically "Going Blank Again") are terrific. The great thing about the modern era is that in my playlist they are still part of the album.

    While there may be better singles on Purple Rain, this one is too good to not add to the list:

    No, see, it has to be better than the songs from the album though, and Feels is gem after gem.

    I know it seems like a lifetime ago, and yes, "High and Dry" and "Fake Plastic Trees" inadvertently spawned a thousand Coldplays, but there are songs on The Bends that are much better than "Talk Show Host."

    If I ever had a band, it would just cover this song over and over again.


    (B-Side to "Goody Two Shoes"


    One of the only Tom Petty songs I've really liked... b-side to "You Don't Know How It Feels"

    That Adam Ant b sides compilation... half of those songs are better than any of his singles at all. I love Christian D'or, Greta X, It Doesn't Matter, Physical
