Psycho Candy
5.  Psycho Candy by Jesus & Mary Chain

The Clash [UK Version]

The Back Room
9.  The Back Room by Editors

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (311 customer reviews)

Rage Against The Machine
13.  Rage Against The Machine by Rage Against The Machine

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (177 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Eight Legged Groove Machine
14.  The Eight Legged Groove Machine by The Wonder Stuff
The list author says:
  "This (along with early PWEI) led the the way by years for laddishness in pop though wry and witty here.  Not all indie kids have to read Arthur Miller - some drink beer too!"

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Hot Fuss
15.  Hot Fuss by The Killers
