#498: Suicide, 'Suicide' - 1977 Idol Nation

    • Comedy

The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time 

Suicide, 'Suicide' Red Star, 1977
These New York synth-punks evoke everything from the Velvet Underground to rockabilly. Martin Rev’s low-budget electronics are violent and hypnotic; Alan Vega screams as a rhythmic device. Late-night listening to “Frankie Teardrop,” a 10-minute-plus tale of a multiple murder, is not recommended. A droning voice in the wilderness when they appeared in the Seventies, the duo would influence bands from Arcade Fire and the National to Bruce Springsteen, who covered Suicide live in 2016. - Rolling Stone


Rolling Stone's pick: Frankie Teardrop
Lauren's pick: Ghost Rider
Tom's pick: Ghost Rider
