"Where Have All The Good Times Gone?", "White Light / White Heat (live, BBC,

"Satisfaction" -- Devo
"Privilege (Set Me Free)" -- Patti Smith Group
"Here She Comes Now" -- Galaxie 500
"Indian Summer", "Ride Into the Sun", "In the Flesh" -- Luna
"Black Steel (In the Hour of Chaos)" -- Tricky
"Gloria" -- Patti Smith, Shadows of Knight

"Stop Your Sobbing" -- Pretenders
"Winterlong" -- Pixies... also do a nice "Wild Honey Pie" on the BBC disc
