King Tubby

The opening of the Pistols’ "Holidays in the Sun"

Husker Du’s "Eight Miles High"

When Coltrane hits that extended, hair-raising note in "Transition" and keeps it going longer than anyone in their right mind would wish he would

Side 4 of Miles Davis’ "Pangaea," when he sits it out and lets the band show him what he’s taught them about space, rhythm, texture, economy and creepy groove. Dark Magus indeed.

The first track on Augustus Pablo’s "King Tubby’s Meets Rockers Uptown," the Alpha and Omega of dub

J’s solo in "The Lung"

The guitar solo/second half of Butthole Surfers’ "I Saw an X-Ray of a Girl Passing Gas" — unparalleled LSD madness

Los Lobos’ "Life Is Good" — weed, anyone?
