Re: 100 Songs That Shaped Alternative Rock

I think "Good Vibrations" should be high up on this list. It basically invented indie pop.

I would suggest adding Tom Waits as well, but I don't think he really has a single song that was very significant towards the genre (he's much more of an albums artist).
