Siouxsie & the Banshees
"Israel" (1980?)

She invented Goth Punk single-handedly. From garage to punk to dandy to industrial! Then, she invented a post-punk Island Music with her band The Creatures. A brilliant mind and a dead serious band. "Keep your hopes alive, with a sun from inside."

Phil Ochs
"I Ain't Marchin' Anymore" (1969)

A great protest singer during the Hippie Revolution that changed Amerika forever. His "Pleasures of the Harbor" is one of my favorite albums. It's always the old chumps sending the young humps to kill and die, and every soldier dies in vain.

Captain Beefheart Magic Band
"I'm Gonna Booglarize You" (1967?)

Genuine hippie insanity blues experimentalist wildman band. Harvey Dog, have you seen this yet? YouTube has some more by this bizarre innovator.
