Before you say "well metallica uses power chords too", they actually play songs and solos and leads and interesting rythms. and they can make a chours thats not a chord over and over

it's amazing how many metallica fans hate metallica
i don't hate them. they are still my favorite band of all time. no matter what they do nothing can take away that they created those masterpieces of albums and had a large hand in creating thrash itself

Ode to Joy is the finale of the Ninth Symphony- his last one.

it's funny to see you all post songs that are released in the states but are not that big in Europe and the other way around.

the metallica song that would stick out in europe would be Nothing else matters , for sly & the family stone it would be Sympathy.

point is Bands sometimes release different songs on the continent and in the USA or in Australia.
so your point of vieuw on the subject depends on the place you live.

for example if I take randmans post
for canned heat it would be On the road again for me

ssj4 aerosmith- for me it would be dream on and walk this way with run dmc

Has anyone mentioned Men at Work's: Land Down Under?

I've heard that they're still a big thing in South America.

I think these fit in to ethan's guidelines. Sometimes it's not just one song but one particular album that hits big for a particular artist (example: So by Peter Gabriel).

Black Sabbath - Iron Man
Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
David Bowie - Let's Dance
Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U
Public Enemy - 911 Is A Joke
The Black Crowes - Hard To Handle
Bob Marley - Exodus
Depeche Mode - People Are People

What k_rock923 said...

ok heres the deal on metallica. once cliff was gone. that was it. over
Cliff Burton's death had nothing to do with the way Metallica made their new direction once they picked up Jason Newstead. You could thank their new producer Bob Rock for that instead...

A very close Japanese friend I knew a while ago once said to me "Watashi no koto wo oboeta, onegai shimasu...Yakusoku?"

I forgot his name though...

ShySHy, sorry, me forgot... I just went through my playlist and found it there all alone, so I put it here. But I consider my playlist as a quite balanced one... I am just ripping my CDs into MP3s, quite a boring work...

How do they call the Big Mac? Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it Le Big Mac! LE BIG MAC?!

im genuinly confused by this thread... so many bands listed here have had 5-10 years of fame, or a veritable feast of more successful songs completely ignored.

especially blur, bonjovi, madonna, aerosmith, nirvana, beasty boys and DAVID BOWIE

i dont know how anyone could say that lets dance built his musical career...

oh well.. never mind me....

ac/dc - whole lot of rosie

yea but the point was careers built on one song - if you ask anybody to name a ac/dc song - the most people would go with "rosie" right?

I wasn't born in those days, so I can't it remember myself)

For the last time. It wasn't built on that song, it means that whenever you ask someone a pinmk floyd song, most will say that. READ THE THREAD BEFORE POSTING.

yup, 79/80

But PF were always predominantly an album band,
so it stands to reason that most people would only be able to name that one song (though some slightly older dudes might go for See Emily Play, or Money).

But as for "Bowie - Let's Dance", dunno about USA, but in UK that would be one of the last songs most people would think of
Space Oddity, Starman, Life on Mars, Gene Genie, Ziggy Stardust, Heroes, and many many others would all come before Let's Puke, umm Dance.

Oh yeah, sorry, but I don't have anything new to contribute.
