#499: Public Image Ltd.-Public Image (Top 500 Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)

(Top Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)
Song: "Public Image"
Artist: Public Image Ltd.
Release Date: October,1978
From the Album: Public Image: First Issue (1978)

Quick Take: Public Image Limited's debut single, "Public Image," and Keith Levene's guitar part, with its tasty suspensions and held-over-the-bar syncopation, was an important departure from standard punk guitar language absorbed so quickly by others (the Pretenders, U2, the Smiths) that listeners and musicians alike forgot the source of the sound. -Courtesy: Uncle Dave Lewis (
