Heroin by The Velvet Underground on Grooveshark

8.The Velvet Underground -The Velvet Underground & Nico
Introducing the teeny-bopper world of rock and roll to the deviancy of Andy Warhol's drug, sex and art Factory, The Velvet Underground and Nico is groundbreaking not only for its cultural mash-up of the two genres, but for its creative expansion of them. Largely ignored in its day, the album is now known as one of the most influential of the decade, inspiring successive generations of musicians like David Bowie, Michael Stipe and Jack White. Key tracks include "I'm Waiting for the Man," "Heroin," and "Venus in Furs."
