"White Room" by Cream.

OK, more 60's: Beat poet Pete Brown wrote the lyrics and Jack Bruce the music. About "depression and hopelessness...images of waiting in an English railway station 'under the influence' ". Unusual 5/4 time signature - wicked drummin' by Ginger Baker. Features Felix Pappalardi on viola. Perhaps Clapton's most notable use of the Vox Clyde McCoy Picture Wah. #6 US, #24 UK in '68. #367 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All time. Song? Band?

"We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" by The Animals. The Animals were arguably one of the, if not THE, first punk bands, laying the foundation for the genre in the 70's and 80's. Bad boys!
