#14. The Doors, Strange Days (1967)

Favorite song: "People Are Strange"

Tech N9ne: “If it wasn’t for ‘People Are Strange’ being on that album, I would’ve never came with the idea to do Strange Music. It inspired me to come up with my label name, Strange Music. That song gave me an idea to do something great. That song saved my life. Thank you Jim Morrison.

“That song popped out at me because it reminded me of a dark carnival. I’ve always been intrigued with clowns because I used to fear clowns when I was young. Even if you look at the album cover for Strange Days, it’s like some painted face motherfuckers on there. Like the circus is on the street or something.”
