100 Records That Shook The World, #60

The Doors

The Doors
I think it is fair to say that the self-titled debut LP of The Doors was a much-needed shock to the system of rock music, in a decade that had had more than its fair share of shocks. The band's 12-minute epic 'The End', their performances of 'Break On Through' and 'Light My Fire' on national TV, plus Morrison's December arrest on-stage for public indecency and obscenity in New Haven, Connecticut, did nothing to lessen the shock. Even though their career spanned a few short years, their popularity today is greater than ever, and it is for this reason that "The Doors" is included in this list.
