The Psychedelic Furs- “The Ghost in You”

With a sound that blends post-punk angularity and new wave pop sheen with a heavy dose of gothic atmospherics, the Psychedelic Furs were one of the more unlikely success stories of the early-’80s British invasion. The Furs began in England in February 1977, when brothers Tim (guitar) and Richard Butler (bass), along with John Ashton (guitar), Duncan Kilburn (saxophone), and Vince Ely (drums) — all former art school students — formed the band. The group’s blend of edgy jangle pop and gloomy textures immediately distinguished them from their contemporaries; after recording a demo tape with producer Steve Lillywhite, the Psychedelic Furs landed a contract with CBS Records.

The Black Keys- “Lonely Boy”

The Black Keys are an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (vocals, guitar) and Patrick Carney (drums). Their eponymous debut album was released in 2002. The band’s raw blues rock sound draws heavily from Auerbach’s guitar and Carney’s drumming, occasionally incorporating elements of punk rock, garage rock, and psychedelic rock.

“Lonely Boy” is a song by the American rock duo the Black Keys. It is the opening track from their 2011 album El Camino and was released as the record’s lead single on October 26, 2011. The song is powered by a simple, catchy riff reminiscent of Ronnie Hawkins’ “Who Do You Love?” and 60s garage rock. The song became their breakthrough hit, reaching number 64 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and going on to sell over three million copies worldwide.

The Raconteurs- “Steady, As She Goes”

The Raconteurs are an American rock band formed in Detroit, Michigan in 2005. The band is composed of Jack White (vocals, guitar), Brendan Benson (vocals, guitar), Jack Lawrence (bass) and Patrick Keeler (drums). White and Benson are the band’s songwriters. The Raconteurs released their debut album, Broken Boy Soldiers, in 2006. Its follow-up, Consolers of the Lonely, was released in 2008. Third Man Records released the band’s fourth album Help Us Stranger on June 21, 2019.

The Raconteurs’ sound has been described as “a funky melding of vintage rock styles”. Their music has been categorized under the genres of alternative rock, blues rock and garage rock. “Steady, As She Goes”, the Raconteurs’ biggest hit to date, peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 2007.

The White Stripes- “Seven Nation Army”

The White Stripes are one of the most important and influential garage rock bands of all time. They shot to fame with their 2001 album White Blood Cells, and “Seven Nation Army” is one of the most iconic songs from that record. The song is an excellent example of the band’s signature sound: a raw, primal blend of blues and rock that is both immediate and timeless.

The Black Crowes- “Hard to Handle”

The Black Crowes are an American rock band formed in 1989. Their discography includes eight studio albums, four live albums and several charting singles. The band was founded by brothers Rich Robinson and Chris Robinson, along with guitarist Jeff Cease, bassist Johnny Colt and drummer Steve Gorman. Rich Robinson is the band’s primary songwriter and guitarist, while brother Chris Robinson is the band’s lead vocalist.

The Black Crowes have been categorized as southern rock, blues rock and hard rock, and they have had a wide-ranging influence on many bands including Pearl Jam,Kings of Leon, The Arctic Monkeys, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.
