* When [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoQYw49saqc "Clint Eastwood"]] first came out in the US, you couldn't go anywhere without hearing it or, to a lesser extent, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IUjtHf76wM "19/2000"]].
** Oddly enough, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ondpLxoRJuk Soulchild Remix]] of 19/2000 gets more airtime than the original, even being referred to as the original on radio stations!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGwAdlS1cj0 "5/4"]]. SHE TURNED MY DAD ONNNNNN
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aA84lcLxCi0 "Man Research (Clapper)"]] - "This is a breakfast club!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j05BHuCvzDU "Sound Check (Gravity)"]] - Epic enough already... and then those violins come in...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-_Bfd2nXyk "Punk"]] is one minute and thirty-six seconds of highly concentrated ''win.''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otUfVL-5aXQ The Spacemonkeyz remix]] takes that win and turns it into a reggae song. Exactly as awesome as it sounds.
* "[=M1A1=]" is Gorillaz in full throttle band. It starts slowly and scary, and it builds onto an awesome rock soundtrack. It feels like old school Blur, or even old school alternative rock.

!''Demon Days''
* The most memorable Gorillaz song is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw8PpYBiDsc "Feel Good Inc."]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxziFMyRwDg "Kids With Guns"]] is truly epic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFHjUUYDmJs "O Green World"]] makes the listener want to go out and punch zombies in the face over and over again.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBie-xdbLeM "Dirty Harry"]] is just plain awesome.
* [[TearJerker "El]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4wkPoVILSQ Manana"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LDEm8mC-Nw "Every Planet We Reach Is Dead"]] has some great instrumentals.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrdI2iC-sYY "November Has Come"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAOR6ib95kQ "Dare"]] just makes you want to get up and dance.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKM9Iz89CyQ "Fire Coming Out Of The Monkey's Head"]]. Brrrr.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1pu4O9vzLY "Don't Get Lost in Heaven"]], which along with "Demon Days" makes up the finale of the second album, is just freaking beautiful.
** The violin at the beginning of "Demon Days". Beautiful, haunting, and with that slight dissonance that just sticks in your head. Gives you the best kind of chills...

!''Plastic Beach''
* Has a ''ton'' of this: notably, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4UtbrbsrjY "Superfast Jellyfish"]], '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjQLhj4kzR4 "Sweepstakes"]]''', and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXaiI4M5ieg "Some Kind of Nature"]].
* Bobby Womack in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhPaWIeULKk "Stylo"]] definitely deserves a spot on this list. Hell, the whole song.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvPKDZ4ty68 "Rhinestone Eyes"]] is looking to claim a spot as well.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04mfKJWDSzI "On Melancholy Hill"]] is one of the most beautiful, lingering, and raw songs in recent memory. And it's even better [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1e6NHJGO3vA live.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQWT7fNrVqQ "White Flag"]] is even more amazing played live, [[spoiler:where Damon comes out at the end waving a giant white flag.]] Cue the audience going ''nuts.''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMnrFiG8FRo "To Binge"]] is also incredibly beautiful, as is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8566UtalG_o "Empire Ants"]].
* [[TearJerker "Cloud]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEoZU_H58bo of Unknowing"]]. If it can make [[{{Jerkass}} Murdoc]] tear up, you know it's powerful. When it's played live, it's even more heartbreaking and awestriking.
* The titular [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGMtre1aeM4 "Plastic Beach"]] doesn't get enough love: It's automated computer speech, it's a Casio on a plastic beach...

!''The Fall''
* ''The Fall'''s first single, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAeUwuUGSaM "Phoner To Arizona"]]. Like "Doncamatic" before it, it's a nuclear-force BaseBreaker in the fandom.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H58x-4xFnTY "Revolving Doors"]]. That ukulele loop is just...awesome.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKtNaVaqAKk "Amarillo"]] is flat-out ''gorgeous.''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTB0JVDBlZk "Hillbilly Man"]] has huge amounts of awesome, just lying in wait for someone to get to 1:50. Guttural noises? In this case, yes please. And that's not even BEGINNING to mention [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8qlJxZ3He8 "The Parish of Space Dust"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mCX2sVQjYA "Joplin Spider"]] has the overbearing synths and noises that hearken back to phase one.

!!Non-studio releases
* From ''D-Sides'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ue714d1V6I "Rockit"]], a song in which [[SingingSimlish about half of the lyrics]] [[CrazyAwesome are blahs.]]
* Also from ''D-Sides'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHBss4mpHhU "Stop the Dams"]]. Incredibly beautiful, peaceful, nostalgic, and hopeful...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwKcXfUmLkk "Doncamatic"]]. [[BaseBreaker Some would rather forget this song was ever recorded]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kJVOzk6XLA "Murdoc is God"]] is, as Murdoc put it, [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth "One chord and the truth."]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36DCuT1KxM4 "Do Ya Thing"]], recorded for the promotion of a line of Gorillaz-themed Converse sneakers and featuring Andre 3000 from Outkast and James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem, is all kinds of crazy awesome. The full [[EpicRocking 13 minute]] version features an extended outro reminiscent of LCD Soundsystem, or some older Gorillaz tracks like White Light, Glitter Freeze, or Punk, accompanied by Andre [[CrazyAwesome screaming and wailing about how he's "the shit" over and over. And that entire bit was IMPROVISED.]] Amazing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1RzxBBAQzA Hong Kong]] has been a really underrated track, with its surprisingly peaceful, almost zen-like use of violins and beautiful guzheng accompaniment. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whJ2nPeqtVU Watch it here live.]]

Aw, what the hell, it would probably be easier just to say that '''everything''' ever put out by Gorillaz counts as CrowningMusicOfAwesome.
