Radiohead - Morning Bell - what a TOUGH matchup, both Genius songs. Radiohead edges it because of the risks taken at that time for an indie "rawk" band.
Jeff Buckley - Lover, You Should've Come Over - great song, although One Love is one of my favorites from Blue Lines...
Television - Venus
Led Zeppelin - Misty Mountain Hop - Easy winner
Sonic Youth - Candle Surprised this song is not acclaimed yet. It has pretty much all the trademarks of a classic SY song. Possible winner of the game for me.
Stevie Wonder - Visions
Kraftwerk - Europe Endless
Sex Pistols - Bodies
