NME’s Greatest Track of the Last 60 Years.

NME just crowned what they believe to be the greatest track of the last 60 years and I have to say I could not agree more. The honour went to Joy Division’s 80s classic, “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, which has been a favourite of mine for years. For me, as far as bands go, Joy Division are definitely one of the best ever, rivaling only The Smiths and The Cure, who I’m happy to see also made it onto NME’s Top 20 list, which you can look at below:







1. Joy Division – ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’
2. Pulp – ‘Common People’
3. David Bowie – ‘Heroes’
4. The Beach Boys – ‘Good Vibratons’
5. New Order – ‘Blue Monday’
6. The Stone Roses – ‘She Bangs The Drums’
7. The Smiths – ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’
8. The Specials – ‘Ghost Town’
9. Dizzee Rascal – ‘Fix Up, Look Sharp’
10. Oasis – ‘Wonderwall’
11. The Rolling Stones – ‘Sympathy For The Devil’
12. The Ronettes – ‘Be My Baby’
13. Michael Jackson – ‘Billie Jean’
14. Sex Pistols – ‘God Save The Queen’
15. The Beatles – ‘A Day In The Life’
16. The Cure – ‘Boys Don’t Cry’
17. Bob Dylan – ‘Like A Rolling Stone’
18. The Beach Boys – ‘God Only Knows’
19. Madonna – ‘Like A Prayer’
20. The Stone Roses – ‘I Am The Resurrection’
