• The Spleefman's question: What's the one song since Nirvana released Nevermind that really represents how rock has continued to evolve?

Man, that is a TOUGH question, but... let's see, well, um, Nevermind came out in 1991, so that means Beck is game,  and since Beck is game, I'm going to go with "Loser."

For me, "Loser" epitomizes rock's evolution in three ways:

1) It clearly takes its cue from the rise of hip hop/rap, yet remains a rock song at heart.

2) It was recorded on home gear, reflecting the rise of today's democratization of tech.

3) Half the chorus is in Spanish, demonstrating, um, well, who the hell knows, but it's cool.

So, there you have it, my best stab at answering Eric Eff's (aka The Spleefman) question. Cory? Toby? Dave? Erik? Keith Richards? Please weigh in.
