Patti Smith, 'Horses'


Patti Smith, 'Horses'
5/50

Arista, 1975

Rock & roll poetry was a bore until this Jersey girl showed up – suddenly, it was all sex and sweat and switchblades and Jesus in black leather and horses and sweet young things humping the parking meter. And she had a really sick drummer.

Essential moment: "Gloria," a six-minute blast of fast, filthy garage rock with "1-2-3-4! " energy.
