where's that old rock and roll thread part two?
(1 hour ago)President Bush Wrote:  "Canyons of Your Mind" by the Bonzo Dog Band has what's often acknowledged to be the worst guitar solo ever.

I totally love Bonzo Dog, and i will be looking for that guitar solo. I'm a sucker for really bad stuff. Unless it's too camp.
But who's to say what that is?

There's no accounting for lack of taste.

Yoko Ono could have been my favorite singer if she wasn't rich and famous.
That part kind of ruined the irritating aspect of it for me.
Like, she didn't have to be that irritating. She had options.

Maybe it's just silly prejudice on my part, but i heard moments of shrill screeching that didn't sound quite sincere.

Imagine trying to make the most sincere sound you can muster?

Some asshole will always call insincerity on it.
Because he sincerely can't get laid.

Maybe he should sing something.

Just listened to it; loved it.

Wish the guitar solo had been longer.

damn. great stuff. Hadn't heard in ages. Love the Puppets guitar guy.

Gotta hear Diane now:

Damn. Couldn't find it.

Found a song of the same name though, by Husker Du:

3 minutes in, it gets really good for 10 seconds.
That's all you can ask for.

Ah, figured it out.

The Meat Puppets song I thought was called "Diane" is actually named "We don't exist."

Great number, if you've never heard it and you like rock and roll. Fast and slightly freaky.

I dig the Meat Puppets, for sure.

and some Dinosaur Jr:
