Sleigh Bells "Crown on the Ground"
I hear the argument that everything in Rock and Roll has been done a million times over, but no matter what people say, there are still songs that knock me out the first time I hear them. “Crown on the Ground” by Sleigh Bells is one of those songs. It is possible I will end up hating this song/band, but my first impression, after picking myself up off the floor after the immense bass first rattled out of the speakers, was to really love this song. The guitars shreik and sting, especially when matched by the vocals after the chorus, before the floor drops out and the synths and the bass thunder back in. Has this been done before? Hell yes. Does that stop me from wanting to hit repeat? Nope.
