Singles World Cup – First Round – Eleventh Tie

It’s

‘Come To Daddy’ by Aphex Twin

Great singles should sound like bizarre, alien things beamed in from distant planets, outlandish artifacts that mere mortals could never concoct. This is one of those. Strange, and scary, and amazing.

VERSUS

‘God Save The Queen’ by Sex Pistols

If rock is rebellion then God Save The Queen is the greatest rock song of all time. That cover, those lyrics, that clarion call of disaffection, that ban, that boat trip, that stolen number one spot. Before it all, that slashing guitar and that incredible, still electrifying, vocal performance.

WINNER: Sex Pistols
