I was at the show and must say the new tunes translated well live, with some added muscle. This was obviously a warm up gig for their summer dates but they were ON!

June 23, 2017 on Hear Queens Of The Stone Age Debut New Song “The Evil Has Landed” In Niagara Falls
YHF might be the consensus pick for their best album, but yea... they play a majority of that album on a typical tour. I'd go for Being There to hear the seldomly played deep cuts. I'd even take the self-titled record because aside from 1 or 2 tracks it's rarely revisited

August 20, 2016 on Livestream The Tragically Hip’s Final Concert
Wow, 2016 just won't let up. I grew up on this band so i'll always hold them dear. Living close to Canada I was fortunate enough to see The Hip several times through the years & can easily say that they (more specifically Gord) leaves it ALL on the stage each night. If you're not familiar with their work, I've always sort of thought of them as Canada's Pearl Jam or REM (solid back catalog, marathon shows, drastically different setlists from night to night, rabid fanbase). I recommend checking out their albums: Day for Night, Fully Completely, Phantom Power, Up to Here... they're all pretty solid though. Hope i get to see them one last time.

May 6, 2016 on Radiohead – “Daydreaming” Video (Dir. Paul Thomas Anderson)
Surprise album drops are the best! Brings me back to when Radiohead released TKOL, a day before my wedding (best week ever!). As much as i have loved the handful of singles released in anticipation of Currents, i've sat with them for weeks, months(?), and it's taking a bit of the luster out of the album release today for me. Here's hoping we move to more and more surprise album releases going forward

Trim 3 tracks off of Brothers (for me it'd be Ten Cent Pistol, Black Mud & maybe I'm Not the One) and you're looking at clearly their best album & arguably one of the better albums of the past decade

...or at least his own column! I'd pay to read that. Rolling Stone would be smart to offer him one, at the very least to try to save a dying medium. Of course that's assuming he'd agree to take that on, a big assumption!

May 15, 2014 on Game Of Thrones Offered Lily Allen A Role Entailing Real Life Incest
Used to dig this band during their peak, even kept following them for a few more albums. My tastes have changed considerably since then (high school). It's funny, when i'm feeling nostalgic i still enjoy listening to some of my favorite albums from that period (such as REM's Monster, hell even some Sublime or Everclear), but i just cannot get myself to revisit Live... and I think alot of that has to do with reading too much into the stories surrounding their breakup. Ed came off as a greedy jerk

Rag and Bone... anyone? That song rips, and to me it's the quintessential Stripes song, has all the elements you want/need.

I know they technically weren't SP, but I always considered Zwan in the mix with the Pumpkins albums. But then what would you do about Billy's solo album (and James and Jimmy's solo joints, i guess), so I get it. That being said, If i was throwing it into the ranking, i'd put it in one spot ahead of Oceania.
