Today's "Best Song Ever"

Yo La Tengo "We're An American Band"

You'd think as far as song titles go "We're An American Band" would be too specific to have other songs share it's name. It was also a remarkably popular song that Yo La Tengo have covered. But the two songs could hardly be more different. Yo La Tengo's song is a noisy shoegazy ballad that seems to drone and flicker on into infinity, the other is a barnstorming rocker about groupies and partying.

Download, Listen, Discuss.
