“One of the first songs to ever pique my interest in LedZepplin was “Battle Of Evermore”, first heard at a friend’s home, the song’s name eluded me for sometime. It was not until few months later in a pub called “Pecos” (formely “Stones”), I heard the song again and rushed to the manager to know its name. Since then over period of last few years, LedZeppelin has kept me spellbound. This playlist is collection of songs which have left a profound impact and wont be ever forgotten.”

Hip Hop • Latin • Gangsta • Chicano Rap • 1992
Viva La Raza! You can call this album as a page in the history book of Mexican-American history and Chicano Movement. Because Funky Aztecs a.k.a pioneers of Chicano rap tried to reunite and bring peace between the Mexican-American gangs Norteños and Sureños through this album. Another interesting fact about this album is its album cover. The cover represents the Norteños in red and Sureños in blue (the gang colour itself) with same dress and the same number of people to show both are same in everything. All the tracks on Chicano Blues are amazing. English, Spanglish and good enough rapping. Don’t miss this album. Otherwise, you will miss history.
The First Time
Mandopop • World • Regional • 1992
Most of the people only know about Jackie Chan’s movie career. But do you know, more than an actor, his is a wonderful singer! From 1984 to 2008, he had release around 11 albums, recorded theme songs for movies and Beijing Olympics closing song. Most of his songs are in Japanese and Cantonese, but there are some English song too. The First Time is pure Mandopop, and all the songs will remind you about the background score on Jackie's movie like city hunter. So, amigos, plug you ear phone, romance is on the way.

Doesn’t Remind Me by Audioslave
This song captures the essence of this supergroup called Audioslave. Coupled with an beautifully story driven video, cornell’s vocals and morello’s restrained guitar work makes this my favorite audioslave song ever
Blackbird by Alter Bridge
This was one of the first songs I ever heard from this group. Needless to say hearing myles’s soaring vocals and mark and myles tasty guitar playing made me a fan.
Anesthetize by Porcupine Tree
Steven Wilson is God. I really like lengthy songs that encapsulate my attention way more than 2-3 minute pop songs. This song is definitely a master piece combing all the genres I am into. I really enjoy gavin’s playing here.
Drive Home by Steven Wilson
Listening to this song will make you cry. This my favorite Steven Wilson song ever. This song has an amazingly done but incredibly sad video and some heart wrenching guitar playing by Guthrie.
Turn the Page by Metallica
I have heard this song a million times yet I never got sick of it. This was the song that introduced me to Metallica and I am thankful for that. Even though its a cover song I believe this song is Metallica.
Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley
This song is so minimal with just guitar accompanied by buckley’s vocals and it still sounds great and soothing to the ear and makes my heart warm.
Shine on You crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd
I don’t think this song needs any introduction. If I had to listen just one song for the rest of life This song would be it.
Parabol, Parabola by Tool
I love, love Tool. It was incredibly difficult for me to pick just one song out of their entire catalogue but this song (actually two songs) is what I have heard on repeat numerous times & is one of my favorite tool tunes.
Glass Arm Shattering by Porcupine Tree
This song sounds so delicate, so fragile. This song for me was the highlight of Deadwing album.
Heart shaped Box by Nirvana
When I think of Nirvana I always think of this song. This song was one of the first I ever heard from Nirvana and needless to say I became a lifelong fan.

Atomic Forest stands as the only Indian psychedelic/hard rock band that managed to record an album: Obsession '77. They jammed with Led Zeppelin and performed at the Snehayatra Festival ‘The Indian Woodstock'. This album is fuzzy, groove and funky enough. Atomic Forest's is an unsung band in Indian who can depict the underground scene of India in the 70's. If you are not a fan of Psychedelic, but I suggest, listen to the first track of this album. I don't have any words to describe the energy of the song, the drum and the lead will blow you away, better you hear it.
