Peter Buck is revered for his work with R.E.M., but he’s made brilliant music with Billy Bragg, the Decemberists, First Aid Kit, and Eyelids. We pick ten of the best.
We present the best punk, post-punk, new wave, college rock, goth, industrial, new romantic, ska, power pop, hardcore, and indie rock singles of the 1980s.
The classic Replacements lineup of Paul Westerberg, brothers Tommy and Bob Stinson, and Chris Mars remain unbeatable. The inhuman streak of Let It Be, Tim, and Pleased to Meet Me are bested by only a few.
