The 11 Best Black Crowes Songs


How did the Black Crowes make it? They came out in the glam-laced big hair of the 80s...they had big hits in the flannel-wearing 90s...but they sound like a band who took a time machine into the future from the 70s. I don't think there is any other band out there who sounded less like the popular musical style of the day and still somehow found a way to be successful. Not only did these guys have a hit...or two...they had three very prominent stoner-friendly albums that somehow found themselves sandwiched between Snoop Dogg and Candlebox on the pop music charts. (Who's Candlebox? Ask your parents) Somehow...20 years later (yep, it's their 20th year) the Black Crowes have remained relevant, popular, and most importantly...respected.

Here are the 11 Best Black Crowes Songs:

1. Remedy (Southern Harmony and Musical Companion)
2. She Talks To Angels (Shake Your Money Maker)
3. Descender (Amorica)
4. Seeing Things (Shake Your Money Maker)
5. Jealous Again (Shake Your Money Maker)
6. Wiser Time (Amorica)
7. Hard To Handle (Shake Your Money Maker)
8. My Morning Song (Southern Harmony and Musical Companion)
9. Lay It All On Me (Lions)
10. Waitin' Guilty (Money Maker B-Side)
11. Hotel Illness (Southern Harmony and Musical Companion)

Purchase the new Black Crowes album, Warpaint...you won't be sorry.

Arvli Ward called and said he needs to see you in his office ASAP. Something about people throwing records at the ceiling in Ackerman Union.
