The Smiths "this charming man"

Replacements "favorite thing"

The Jam "going underground"

The Who "live at leeds" (entire album)

Rancid "maxwell murder"

Sonic Youth "goo"

Stone Roses "she bangs the drums"

Sly and the Family Stone "I wanna take you higher"

+any classic era motown basslines, still the most duplicated and unappreciated
