The Residents- I Can't Get No Satisfaction!
Recorded in 1976, another great weirdo deconstruction of one of rock's most recognizable songs (I assume you already know Devo's version, but this one is further out there...freak out vs. quirk). And with a great B-Side to boot.
I guess this was either too weird, arty or obscure to get lumped in with early punk (shit, even Blondie was considered punk...compare to this), but that's not worth worrying about. This is a great and challenging little record. The songs don't sound alike at all and each are interesting and challenging in different ways. Feels like longer than 6 minutes...this little record's a monster.
