1) Blur: They had lyrics that all English kids, or Anglophile Americans, could relate to. They had a cute music video with a walking emotive milk carton. They had an egotistical lead singer named Damon Albarn, who still makes great music today (a few bands you have probably heard of-Gorillaz and The...

Remember Serenity? The movie was made almost solely for fans of the prematurely cancelled sci-fi series Firefly, which was confusing and uninteresting for most people who weren't fans of the show.

So, I was drinking my coffee and amaretto (it's OK; it was after noon . somewhere), when I caught sight of my reflection in the liquid's bubbles. I was mesmerized.

1) MC5-If you like the Stooges, you will probably love MC5. They are partially responsible for the dawning of punk (real punk), and their suggestive anti-establishment lyrics and thrashing guitar chords definitely fit the bill for the '70s counterculture. Their rowdy live shows were always viscerally...
