Tough one between Neil Young and Radiohead, I don't mind It's all too Much but it would be way down in a list of the best Beatles songs.

 

Gone with Radiohead, although again as Skids alludes to, it wouldn't be troubling a top 20 best Radiohead songs list either.

About 10 or 15 years ago I was doing the washing up when this song came on the radio and the guitar sound floored me, sounded like the amp and my radio were about to shake to bits and burst into flames.

 

Hey Hey, My My is fucking awesome and pisses this group.

I only knew the Radiohead song which I absolutely love, gave the others a listen liked Neil Young and Sam Cooke's song but they aren't beating Fake plastic trees for me. I am one of the few that prefer The Bends to OK Computer and this is the 2nd best track after High and Dry on that album.

Fuck me, this is a group!

 

I loved Echo Beach when it first came out, but it hasn't really aged that well.

 

Fake Plastic Trees is really decent, as far as Radiohead songs go (although that's faint praise, as far as I'm concerned).

 

Hey, Hey, My, My is a stone cold classic, but My, My, Hey, Hey is better.  Get the Weld version on and blast the neighbours' windows out.

 

Talking about blasting windows out, I nominated It's All Too Much. Probably the most underrated Beatles track there is. There's so much going on, that you get something new every time you hear it, especially if you're playing it as loud as it deserves. "Show me that I'm everywhere, then get me home for tea" is the most gloriously George Harrison line ever.

 

For all that, I've had to vote for Sam Cooke, because... well, listen to it. It's sublime.

Originally picked Fake plastic as it’s the song that proper Zens me out. Amazing vocal melody. 
Couldn’t vote against uncle Neil though. First heard ‘hey hey my my’ on VH1 channel hopping late at night. The video was from the Rust never sleeps tour, with the two fuck off massive amps behind him. Old black taking centre stag. Saw him open Glasto with it. Loudest guitar sound I’ve ever experienced.

Stig chose a great version, but I especially love this clip. Every character in the audience is awesome. They all look like they're going through a transcendental experience. I especially love the little ol' grandma at the end banging her fist against a hanky. If there was ever a clip that showed how music unites people, it's this one.
