    Who is that? :p

    I have no clue what anybody knows these days so I can't judge what I know and what other people don't.

        I heard I Against I by Bad Brains the other day.....that really took me back. I don't know if that is obscure enough.

        I also heard God Blessed Video from Alcatraz.....that's a bit more obscure, and seriously rocking.

          HR was the man, and Bad Brains was the shizzy. Great album. I need to go dig that up again.

            Ganja Smuggling by Eek A Mouse. Its the only reggae song i like. The Jamaican or whatever language he speaks through parts of the song is sweet.

              Jim Noir has a song called 'My Patch' which is quite cool in a playful sort of way. You used to be able to listen to it on his website but no longer. Actually, you can listen to some of his stuff here.

              Gogol Bordello are cool if you open your mind wide enough to allow in some international gypsy punk music. Check out 'Start Wearing Purple'. You'll like it if your man enough.

              Pablo Gone Nuts are pretty good too. Check out 'Another Illegal Rave'. Thier tracks are a bit raw and unpolished but it's still really good.

                  Not sure how obscure it has to be, but I'm gonna go with a lesser-known AC/DC song called "Let's Get It Up".

                  For slower songs,
                  "Family Snapshot" - Peter Gabriel (probably not obscure enough)

                  And far more obscure,
                  "Cemetery" - The Headstones

                  I could pick any of a million songs. "Best" and "no-one knows" are pretty tough criteria to judge. :)

                      Midnight Voyage by Ghostland Observatory. It sounds good on the album, but it's a whole different experience seeing them live.

                        "The Last Resort" by the Eagles. I've only heard it off the album, never on the radio.
