#364: Afghan Whigs-Debonair (Top 500 Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)

(Top Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)
Song: "Debonair"
Artist: The Afghan Whigs
Release Date: October, 1993
From the Album: Gentlemen (1993)

Quick Take: While Gentlemen is no monolith, it is very much of a piece at the start. While "If I Were Going" opens things on a slightly moodier tip, it's the crunch of "Gentlemen," "Be Sweet," and "Debonair" that really stands out, each of which features a tightly wound R&B punch that rocks out as much as it grooves, if not more so.
