“King of Carrot Flowers Pts. 2 & 3” – Neutral Milk Hotel

One of the oddest indie rock bands of all time, Neutral Milk Hotel’s unique approach to songwriting and sounding catchy as fuck while retaining their weirdness made them a favorite upon the release In the Aeroplane Over the Sea – a concept album about Anne Frank. On “King of Carrot Flowers Pts. 2 & 3,” in particular, frontman Jeff Magnum pulls listeners through a psychedelic intro saying “I love you Jesus Christ,” with swirling, horns, and bagpipes before plummeting into grungy punk rock for second half of the song.

“Got the Life” – Korn

After two albums launched the Bakersfield band into international stardom, Korn returned with Follow The Leader. The kings of nu-metal blended hip-hop rhythms, low-tuned guitars and emotional snarls from frontman Jonathan Davis went in a poppier direction for a few tracks. Especially on the group’s second single “Got the Life,” which literally has a disco beat running through the entire track. Like, listen to Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 hit “I Will Survive” and tell me that isn’t the same drum beat.
