90's Hit Parade #24

The Breeders - Cannonball

Jesus, this whole thing is starting to wear on me. I'm starting to get the temptation to just quit. But we're almost done. Past the 3/4 mark! So this song is like the archetypal 90's "alternative rock" hit, innit? Its' fantastically catchy, it ROCKS, but it's also quite weird, with all these odd elements that cycle in and out. It's structured almost like a hip hop track in that respect: you could imagine putting this together out of samples in Vegas or Acid or whatever you use. The guitar comes in for four bars, disappears for four bars, comes back again for four more. Crank it up, dude!
