Grace Slick was the female face of psych rock. But she wasn't Jefferson Airplane's original frontwoman. This concert disc (one of four newly released shows) is the first official live album to feature Signe Anderson, whose style is more folk-blues mama than icy acid queen. Anderson belts out songs like "Chauffeur Blues," and elsewhere the Airplane reach cruising altitude on a nine-minute improvisation driven by throbbing bass lines.

    “Santa Monica”

    Everclear | 1996

    After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
