Hold On Hope?

Full disclosure; I only know that tune from Scrubs, but regardless, I love it, and would think it would make a list of this size. Or maybe it did and I just didn't see it. It is 4am, after all..

No, that one is widely acknowledged (by fans and the band itself) as one of their worst songs. Most fans feel the same way about "Bulldog Skin," even though it ended up on their "best of" album...

Posting a few of the notable non-GBV songs on my playlist. Uncle Bob's many side-projects (over 20 of them!) may be inconsistent aside from the Boston Spaceships, but they've almost all yielded at least a couple of great songs.

I've updated the playlist after one final edit, so it's now been finalized.

Yeah, I think they're alright. I'm not very familiar with their work, but from what I've heard, I kind of like it, but not enough to really seek out more. Maybe one day keyes, maybe one day.

Once again, my only retort is:

You like Beirut. Hence, you think Beirut is a good band.

I'm not sure what your problem with Beirut is, but alright.

I never said that Guided by Voices was a bad band, just that I haven't been amazed by what I've heard. Obviously they have a vast selection if music and it's hard to find a place to start and I haven't really felt like doing it yet.

Gee, wouldn't the logical starting point be Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes, the two albums which consistently make those "best of the 90s" lists music zines/websites like to compile? Pitchfork ranked Bee Thousand in their top 10. I'm not sure why I'm replying to someone who's been trolling this thread for 2 weeks, but in my defense, I'm waiting for a download to finish.
