If you don't want to listen to the entire song, start at 4:15. Crank the volume to 10.

I remember listening to Alice Cooper Welcome to My Nightmare... don't remember which song Steven maybe... but the mumbling voices in the background freaked me out. I thought some people were outside my bedroom window. I got up to look before I realized it was on the album.

Lately?

When I heard my daughter listening to a "pop" song and then a moment later my ear twitched and I realized the musicianship was off the charts.

Band called ARK from the album Burn the Sun, in the song Heal the Waters at the 5:46 mark the music abruptly stops and you hear a coin drop on a table wobble to a stop as the music starts back up.

Yoko Ono screaming gibberish during a John Lennon and Chuck Berry performance. Bill Burr summed it up nicely :laugh2:

A German band "Krieger" who were around in the 00's caught my attention due to their extensive use of slides on distorted guitars and bass. At that point I had never really heard slides being used on guitars in this genre of music, and I was (and still am) totally hooked to the sound.

Their entire album is pretty good and is full of that style of playing.

I was like, WTF is that I'm hearing?!?!?

I love the short piano stabs in don’t stop me now. It’s such a shock to the system in an already powerhouse song.

Spoon man has the infamous spoon solo.

Rocket Queen has Axl fucking Steven Alder’s girl.
