Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 23/500!

Always ahead of their time, The Velvet Underground is a true original in American rock and roll. Their self-titled debut album features the popular Andy Warhol 'banana cover'. Besides the cover, the album was also well-known for its controversial subject matter and has become one of the most influential and critically acclaimed rock album in history.

"Much of what we take for granted in rock would not exist without this New York band or its seminal debut, The Velvet Underground and Nico: the androgynous sexuality of glitter; punk's raw noir; the blackened-riff howl of grunge and noise rock. It is a record of fearless breadth and lyric depth. " -

Mobile Fidelity brings out the bottom end and warms up VU’s purposeful layers of instruments and sound effects. Put on your wrap-arounds and strap yourself in as this is pure musical napalm.

"This seven-minute, two-chord track spiked out its territory with lyrics about shooting up until you felt like Jesus' son. 'It wasn't pro or con,' Reed said. 'It was about taking heroin from the point of view of someone taking it. I'm still not sure what was such a big deal. So there's a song called 'Heroin.' So what?' Drummer Moe Tucker disagreed: 'I consider it our greatest triumph.'" - Rolling Stone
