Singles World Cup – First Round – Fourth Tie


‘Purple Haze’ by Jimi Hendrix

Jimi simply blew away the opposition and re-drew the lines of rock music in 1967. A riff that has been played on guitars and tennis racquets ever since. No better combination of rock/psychedelia/funk.


‘Freak Scene’ by Dinosaur Jr.

The best alt-rock song of the 80s, 90s, whenevers. Listen no further, Freak Scene has everything you need. Tumbling energy, carelessly gummy vocals, the two best solos AND  the two best breakdowns in rock, both containing the word ‘Fuck’.

WINNER: Jimi Hendrix
