Flashback Thursday: Jawbox "Savory"

The best song off of one of the best math rock albums at the peak of the genre. This song is such no-brainer -- easily one of the best songs ever. I know this band got so much shit for jumping to a major from Dischord for this album, but the critics were silenced after For Your Own Special Sweetheart dropped. The video may be a little dated, but I could listen to this song over and over for days and not get sick of it.

Jawbox may not have been the kingpins of the District like Fugazi, the cool kids like Girls Against Boys, untouchable like Nation of Ulysses, or arty like Shudder to Think, but they were the best thing to come out of DC in the '90s.
