Lou Reed's seminal rock band
The Velvet Underground was a pioneering experimental rock band from New York City first active from 1965 to 1973. Its best-known lineup consisted of vocalist/guitarist Lou Reed, bassist/violist John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison and drummer Maureen Tucker. The band also collaborated with Nico for their debut album in 1967, under the supervision of producer and pop artist Andy Warhol. Some see The Velvet Underground as being a bridge between the pacifist themes of the late 60s and the sheer chaos and indifference of the mid-70s punk movement.

Music saves. Yes I know medication saves as well, but really music saves. And Rock n' Roll saves alright. Saves you, from a life of predictability, of a life of boredom, of empty soulless pop songs. Saves you, by providing content to your mind. Jenny said so also!
