For Arguing:
RS lists Ten Sleater-Kinney Songs That Make Them the Best American Punk Band Ever. Really.

  • ?The Day I Went Away,? Sleater-Kinney (1995)
  • ?More Than A Feeling,? B-side (1995)
  • ?I?m Not Waiting,? Call The Doctor (1996)
  • ?Call The Doctor,? Call the Doctor (1996)
  • ?One More Hour,? Dig Me Out (1997)
  • ?Start Together,? The Hot Rock (1999)
  • ?Get Up,? The Hot Rock (1999)
  • ?You?re No Rock & Roll Fun,? All Hands On The Bad One (2000)
  • ?Jumpers,? The Woods (2005)
  • ?Modern Girl,? The Woods (2005)
