So someone just asked you to make a mix tape / CD of your favorite band, showcasing their best songs. What songs would you put on it? Pick one band and make a list of 15-20 songs that you think accurately show off the talent of the band or artist. This is both a hypothetical thread and a list to hopefully give fellow UGers some ideas on what to listen to in order to get into some new music. If this has been done before I'll delete it.

edit: Also, if you want to do it in a different format, i.e. pick a few bands and do a few songs from each, that's fine as well...

does it really matter? Contribute or don't, no skin off my nose. If you want to do favorite bands and just do a couple songs for each, that's fine.

Ha ok, fair enough.

I just used "mixtape" because it had a better ring to it.
