Re: Consequence of Sound - The 100 Greatest Debut Singles of All Time (2017)

So, using very strict criteria (stricter than either of the two lists recently posted!), this is the AM Top 40 debut singles: 1. (15) Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the U.K. 1976 2. (41) The Kingsmen - Louie Louie 1963 3. (50) Gnarls Barkley - Crazy 2006 4. (61) The Crickets - That'll Be the Day 1957 5. (...

I like this list more than the RS one, for sure. (LOVE Gone Daddy Gone!) I’d be interested in seeing a list of debut singles as they are on AM.
The most acclaimed debut single on AM is "Anarchy in the UK". I'll try to do a fuller list over the weekend!
