71. Fear, "New York's All Right If You Like Saxophones" (1982)

Waxed by vocalist Lee Ving's snotty Angeleno hardcore outfit and played on an infamous SNL appearance brokered by John Belushi, this tuneful blurt offers an outsider's succinct litany of what our metropolis represents: "New York's alright if you wanna get pushed in front of the subway/New York's alright if you like tuberculosis/New York's alright if you like art and jazz/New York's alright if you're a homosexual." The sax playing, handled by bassist Derf Scratch, is a reasonable approximation of Gotham No Wave blurt.
