98. Big Star - September Gurls

Found on: Radio City (1974)

If there had been no Big Star, there would be no Matthew Sweet, Teenage Fanclub, Lemonheads, R.E.M., or any other power-pop leaning artist that emerged in the '80s. I want to call Big Star underrated, but considering that this tune was covered by The Bangles, The Replacements wrote a song about their lead singer (Alex Chilton) and an earlier tune, In The Street, was the theme for That '70s Show, it's kind of an groundless claim.
