“Super” – NEU!

Further proof that not all 1970s progressive rock sucked.  In fact, between Brian Eno, Can, early Roxy Music, King Crimson, and NEU!, it could be pretty freaking terrific.  The aggression and heaviness of “Super” by NEU! (recorded in 1973) is a blueprint for punk a few years later.

“Search and Destroy” – Peaches

Video

Another killer track from the “War Child” benefit album, “Heroes.” This time it’s Peaches doing a Neu!-style cover of Iggy and the Stooges’ classic punk song from hell “Search and Destroy.” Extra kudos to Peaches for doing a VERY non-standard, but stupendous version of this raver.
