Lou Reed's seminal rock band
The Velvet Underground was a rock band formed in 1964 in New York City by singer/guitarist Lou Reed, multi-instrumentalist John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison, and drummer Angus MacLise (replaced by Moe Tucker in 1965). While the group's integration of rock and the avant-garde achieved little commercial success during their existence, the Velvet Underground are now recognized as one of the bands most influential to rock, underground, experimental, and alternative music.

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!
