The 11 Best Songs By The Jam
I don't think any band gets less appreciation than the Jam. Just taking a listen to music today, you can hear their influence everywhere. The Strokes, The Arctic Monkeys, The Libertines, Against Me! all owe their careers to the sound that Paul Weller and co. created decades ago. And listen to "Set The House Ablaze" and tell me that's not a Bloc Party riff. It's amazing how bands this good go unnoticed.
Paul Weller's new album comes out this week, and it's a good one. Thirty-five years later, this guy is still rocking and showing all his underlings how it's done....correctly.
Here are the 11 Best Songs By the Jam:
1. In The City (In the City)
2. Private Hell (Setting Songs)
3. A Town Called Malice (The Gift)
4. I Got By In Time (In The City)
5. Set The House Ablaze (Sound Affects)
6. In The Street Today (This Is The Modern World)
7. Down In The Tube Station (All Mod Cons)
8. Boy About Town (Sound Affects)
9. Heatwave (Setting Sons)
10. The Place I Love (All Mod Cons)
11. The Modern World (This Is The Modern World)
