Sung by non-native Makes Us Want to Visit

With crunchy guitars and rough vocals, garage rock is nasty in the best way possible. Thus it makes sense that garage rock would embrace nasty things, giving us a classic like The Standells' "Dirty Water." Truly embracing a city means that you have to love the garbage and the grime. "Dirty Water" does that beautifully.
