If you want to go negative, there’s no better choice than Elvis Costello’s “Less Than Zero.”

Also, off the top of my head, I thought of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “Three Little Birds,” and the “One is the Loneliest Number” song that a million people have done versions of, and I think it was Roky Erikson or somebody that did “Two-headed Dog.” And the Raincoats sang “You’re a Million.” And didn’t the Clash do “Four Horsemen”?

1970- also the Stooges

1979 - The Smashing Pumpkins
