#166 – White Light/White Heat by The Velvet Underground

The Velvet Underground, responsible for a lot of musical experimentation, is also like a blueprint for generations of indie rockers.  Especially in terms of drug usage.  They’re a great example of a cult following developing in the years after they were active.  The artists who came after them and the genres they inspired comprise some of my favorite musicians, and ones who were very influential in my life.  It’s hard to imagine modern rock being as raw and experimental as we know it to be without The Velvet Underground.
