    Bands or artists that say who they are in a song.

    I wonder if this one counts since it’s a cover of Donovans song? :)

    Who was the first guitarist to put a humbucker in a Strat?

    Wayne has been mentioned a few times. He did in 1967. https://amp.theguardian.com/books/2018/aug/06/the-hard-stuff-dope-crime-mc5-wayne-kramer-memoir-review

    Recordings with out of tune guitar?

    This one brings me back to teen punk years but first that came to mind. When the bass comes in at :08. Eh, close enough lads?

    Lyric snips that are incredibly powerful

    Don’t think you can top Shane with quips. “I’ll walk there with my feet, and leave there on my back”

    Cramps Tribute LP

    A lot of their songs were covers or riff rip-offs. (I’m saying this as a huge fan.) There was a comp out years ago called Songs the Cramps Taught Us that is really great for reference. They stole way more than zepplin lol-but in a totally unique way.

    What was the immediate impact of ...And Justice for All?

    That’s cool. I saw SOIA play a bunch in New England around 92/93. Me and my skater friends hung out with them for a bit at newbury comics in Cambridge. They were nice to us & funny. Wonder if ‘one’ influenced ‘just look around’?

    The first song to ‘feature’ fuzz guitar sound?

    Definitely a distinction to be made. There are loads of examples of overdriven guitar but the first actual fuzz-box recording was the aforementioned Ventures. Pretty sure their record was prior to the Spector session which wasn’t a fuzz pedal.

    Perfectly engineered songs...

    I don't think it was mentioned yet but Nirvanas Nevermind is a great example (despite Kurts irritation). I doubt it would have hit so big with the raw Bleach production.

    Your favorite Simon & Garfunkel song

    I love their version but can’t count as best being a well-worn traditional folk song since they have so many strong originals!

    Do you consider Springsteen's "Born to Run" to be one of the best songs in American classic rock?

    It’s ok but I vastly prefer Heart of Rock & Roll & Fast Car when it comes to Bruce.

    Which member of Led Zeppelin...

    I agree but my point was you don’t & wouldn’t know these songs without the contributions of Plant, Jones & Bonham.

    origins of Punk Rock

    1975. Stylistically and sonically pure-punk.

    Which member of Led Zeppelin...

    Page seems like the easy answer but thinking about it not so sure. The 3 other members were what made the band distinctive & successful. Led zep would not have happened without them. Just look at the late-period Yardbirds that Page was trying to turn into zep-dazed & confused, tangerine etc. It...
