Top 5 Side 1 Track 1 Songs

John Roling just tagged me to post my top 5 side 1, track 1 songs. Like he said in the blog, there are probably a lot of people who wonder what the hell side 1 refers to, and wonder if maybe there are dual-sided CD’s like there are DVD’s. (On the flip side of that, I wonder how many people think of LP’s when they hear side 1, rather than cassettes.)

Here’s my list. I’m stealing John’s first two because I agree. I can dig on his “Head Like a Hole” nomination, but I don’t know it’s in my top 5.

“Welcome to the Jungle” – Guns ‘n’ Roses, Appetite for Destruction

“Hotel California” – Eagles, Hotel California

“Cowboys from Hell” – Pantera, Cowboys from Hell

“Walk Away” – Dropkick Murphys, Blackout

“Sympathy for the Devil”- Rolling Stones, Beggars Banquet

Man, it’s tough to come up with 5 favorites that are on side 1 track 1. Had to wrack my brain a bit. I almost listed “Dr. Feelgood” from the Motley Crue album of the same name because it was one of the first albums I bought (that should give you an idea of my age), but technically it’s track 2.

The next question — who to tag? I’ll start with Brian and Nate, because I know they’re music nuts. Then Cullen because I know very little about his music tastes. Then I’ll finish it off with John Urbancik and Weston Ochse because they have different tastes in music.

Brian Keene
Nate Southard
Cullen Bunn
John Urbancik
Weston Ochse
