WIRE - "Pink Flag" (1977)
















London, England
Punk/Post-Punk

This is as close you can get to writing the perfect record, and in fact, it may be the perfect record. This is exactly what a punk record should be. Nobody, not even Wire themselves, could ever outshine this record in any way, shape, or form. I'm really not kidding even a little bit when I say this is the greatest record ever cut. Particular favorites include "Mannequin", "1 2 X U", "Three Girl Rhumba", "Brazil", and "Straight Line".
