20. "I Know I'm Not Wrong"
"I Know I'm Not Wrong"
sums up the eccentric basement-recording feel Buckingham brought to Tusk –
a simple yet sublime Beach Boys–style melody over fuzz guitar. It sounds
uncannily like the playful indie-rock sound of Nineties bands like Pavement. "Punk
and New Wave had kicked in," Buckingham said. "It gave me a kick in
the pants in terms of having the courage to try to shake things up a little
bit." His bandmates gave him room to explore. As Fleetwood said, "If
[a song] needs someone hitting a Kleenex box instead of me hitting snare drums,
then we're going to hit the Kleenex box!"
