Rolling Stone‘s “40 Songs that Changed the World” list

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

Here are my top five songs that are missing from Rolling Stone’s list.

  • “No Fun”/”Push It” by Iggy & The Stooges/Salt-N-Pepa and 2 Many DJs
    The best of the mash-up world.
  • 4’33” by John Cage
    Sometimes silence is golden.
  • The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky
    How come riots never happen at any of the concerts I go to?
  • “Police and Thieves”, “White Man in the Hammersmith Palais”, or “White Riot” by the Clash
    How come everybody’s afraid to throw a brick in this country?
  • Any song by the Replacements
    Actually no song by the Replacements ever changed the world, but many of them changed individuals.
