Blue Oyster Cult

Any BOC fans out there. Ever since I heard Don't Fear the Reaper I've been a massive fan.

Blue Öyster Cult's logos pretty cool though, the hooked cross of Kronos.

So apparently you've never heard Godzilla, Harvester of Eyes, Astronomy, Cities of Flame with Rock and Roll, E.T.I.? I Love the Night?

Don't Fear the Reaper is the song that's usually associated with them because it's the song that almost everybody uses. It's their most popular song. That's why it's mentioned more than the others, but that doesn't take away from the greatness of their other hit singles as well as their entire discography.

One of my favorite bands. I still think they don't get as much love as they should.

Not to be too clichéd, but their earliest stuff is untouchable. I'm thinking specifically about Blue Oyster Cult, Secret Treaties and Tyranny and Mutation (the so-called "Black & White" albums) and that first live record On Your Feet Or On Your Knees. There was always a weird balance between serious, hard edged rock and goofy, near self-parodic songwriting with them that wasn't easy to maintain, and which often slips past some people, but that I always found really interesting.

Screams, Stairway to the Stars, The Red and the Black, Then Came the Last Days of May, Harvester of Eyes, 7 Screamin' Diz Busters, The Mistress of the Salmon Salt (Quicklime Girl) and, most of all, the incomparable Astronomy, are all major signposts of my misspent youth.

Fucking criminally underrated band - and Buck Dharma is equally as underrated. Fantastic guitar player.

My top BOC albums go as followed

Secret Treaties
Imaginos
Heaven Forbid
Spectres
Fire of Unknown Origin


Cultosaurus Erectus is one hell of an underrated album, with one of the coolest covers of all time. I also dig The Revolution By Night and Club Ninja, their most hated albums. Kill me, but they're fun as hell.

They are one of the most influential bands. It's amazing how a lot of people forget about them.

I was just listening to this band the other day, and to claim that they are not influential-or just as important-as many other classic rock bands whose shirts are sold en masse at your local Wal Mart retailer (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd) is ignorance. Godzilla and Don't Fear The Reaper are both classics without falling prey to the overexposure many "classics" tend to.
