It really is amazing to me how RZA has essentially taken a 180 in group from their most important element to the biggest impediment.

One minor quibble on here for me is that ‘Blowin Your Mind’ could be a few spots higher. “Brown Eyed Girl”, “He Ain’t Give You None”, and “T.B. Sheets” are all terrific songs

I had the chance to see him a few years back and he did tell a large amount of stories. But they’re stories from B.B. KING, so I gladly shut up and listened.

What bothers me about this list isn’t necessarily that tracks like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” or “Heart Shaped Box” were left off, but that the only real explanation we’re given is “Nirvana recorded better ones.”

I don’t know how much you can argue with here, though “Love Will Tear Us Apart” being at number 5 strains credulity a little bit.

Was I the only one hoping for an epic showdown between Girl Talk/Freeway and Waka?

Fallon did it all the time on the show and he’s done okay for himself

This doesn’t have to be an all-time “classic Wu-banger” to be a great track. If you’re going to automatically compare this to ’36 Chambers’ or ‘Liquid Swords’ or ‘OB4CL’ of course it’s not going to measure up. But it’s three of the best from the Wu going in over a nice clattering soul beat. The hook is an afterthought sure, but it doesn’t drag on for long.

Anyone who has the fortune of catching them live would probably agree with that statement

Only the Pos’ verse is repeated man.
