Greatest Song Ever That Starts with X

Post by drewcannon3 » Wed Jun 20, 2012 10:30 pm

There are zero in the AM 3000 (or rather, I found zero) and zero in my iTunes library. Any thoughts?

The song that has what I like to refer to as The Silliest Moment in the History of Recorded Music: "And in the eyes of a jackal I say Ka-BOOM!!!" I love Mellon Collie, almost all of it, but that one is a strong contender for "worst track on a great album." At least for me.

Beside those already cited :

X by System of a Down
X-Static by the Foo Fighters
X-stasy by Missy Elliott
XMD 5a by AFX
XO / The Hose by the Weeknd
Xxplosive by Dr Dre
Xxzxcuzx Me by Crystal Castles

Xtal is in the Pitchfork 500 (and maybe in Pitchfork's 200 tracks on the 90s bubbling ?) so it might be the most likely to enter AM at some point.
So far I guess my favorite would be Xplosive by Outkast.
