Bands whose best song is the first track of their first release

I don’t think The Beta Band ever topped Dry The Rain

Alright, High Fidelity.

It was a decent sales technique. The rest of the compilation has some good bits but nothing that quite tops that one song.

I think we’ve done this before and I think that Guns N Roses emerged as the peak example.

Are we talking albums then? In that case my Doves answer is wrong

The Killers.

Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine is their best song.

I was particularly talking about first physical release so Sea Song would be right (though The Cedar Room is better)

Pretty sure we’ve done this before, but that’s fine. The answer is still Belle & Sebastian - The State I Am In

Agree with this one very much (Beta Band, stupid forum design/me)

I think we’ve done track 1 side 1 of first album but that’s not always the same (e.g. if bands release singles from albums or have early EPs)

ah, fair enough
