Liz Phair, “Supernova” (Matador, 1994)

Oh, Liz. Not only is this song still the one where you can wait for that double-kick snare and tunnel vision guitar effect, but the lyrics. “Your lips are sweet and slippery like a cherub’s bare wet ass,” “Your kisses are as wicked as an F-16/And you fuck like a Volcano and you’re everything to me” — she wasn’t writing about how hot her boyfriend’s ringtone was, or even that she’d be his umbrella. This was some adult shit. Also: It’s awesome how disinterested/hotter than Hanoi she looks throughout. No thanks on the cheeze “supernova” effects, however. — Johnny Loftus
