Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Saturday’s song is #340:

The Walkabouts – Up in the Graveyard

Pacific Northwest gothic from the genre’s finest practitioners. Gulf War vet comes home to avenge his dead father in a perverse but beautifully logical way. One of frontman Chris Eckman‘s finest lyrical moments: “You can change the darkness into something proud.” From Setting the Woods on Fire, 1994, arguably one of the ten best albums ever made.
