Best b-side bands

1. Pearl Jam

Masterpieces like Sad, Undone, Hard To Imagine, Alone and Footsteps never seeing the light of day on an actual record?
Honorable mentions to All Night, Hold On, Fatal, Wash and the big radio hit Yellow Ledbetter.

2. Radiohead

Polyethylene, Pearly, Palo Alto, Gagging Order, Cuttooth, The Trickster, Killer Cars, Banana Co., I Am a Wicked Child, Fog...



3. The Cure

Forever, The Big Hand, Fear of Ghosts, This Twilight Garden, Halo, Scared as You... especially the b-sides from the Wish era were awesome, but one of the most popular songs for the Cure die-hards is the epic song Forever, one of those songs that if it were released on an actual album, it would be 10 times better.

4. The Stone Roses

From the excellent early rockers like So Young and Tell Me, to the classic Fools Gold, cheeky Something's Burning and the unforgettable Mersey Paradise, Going Down and Where Angels Play.

Any more suggestions?

How about Oasis?

Acquiesce, The Masterplan, Talk Tonight etc... Many of these B-sides would be A-sides for many bands.

Suede. In my opinion ''Sci-fi Lullabies'' is among the best albums of the 90's.
