This list will be ongoing as I hear or think about specific “out of tune” tunes, and can only be made better if you contribute.
Deadline for completion is June 30th, 2025.
Again, I encourage you to contribute. We are making history people!
Please be sure to check back once or twice a year to see where we are at with this. I’m thinking that by 2018 at least we should have something deemed definitive.
I’ll start the first two that I was just listening to back to back, and they were definitely more than slightly out of tune, yet still sounded good. I am including links to quotes about the writing and recording of the songs, not to the recordings themselves, as I am sure you can find them anywhere on your own:
3. Hog Bottom – Phleg Camp
4. Iggy & the Stooges – Gimme Danger
5. Bob Dylan – Queen Jane Approximately
