    Drive Like Jehu - Yank Crime (1994)

    Ok as someone who has never heard Nevermind (apart from the hits, obvs) or delved any deeper than that into Americana (is that the genre?) - on first glance this would be way outside the comfort zone but fup me if the first track didn't grab me by the bollards! According to my napster player...

    Danzig - Danzig (1988)

    I think (on listening so far) if Rick Rubin got on board the Danzig fun-bus a bit earlier, The Cult wouldn't exist in 2016 and Danzig would not have released an album called "Skeletons" in 2015

    Danzig - Danzig (1988)

    Danzig - Danzig (1988) Talk Talk - Spirit Of Eden (1988) Hang on, which one came out first? One of these bands is seriously taking the plagiaristic piss outta the other
