As the band that eventually morphed into Bad Company and gave Queen a veritable replacement for Freddie Mercury in Paul Rodgers, you know these guys must've kicked some ass.

  • Their second album, Free, is one of the grooviest albums recorded in rock, with the chugging "Songs of Yesterday", soulful "Free Me", and heartrending "Mourning Sad Morning".
  • While the Fire and Water album also gave them "All Right Now", "Mr. Big" has a stellar drum/bass groove and one of the best solo trade-offs ever in rock between Paul Kossoff and Andy Fraser.
  • "Wishing Well" is a rollicking beast that opens their last album, Heartbreaker. And it's got no less than two equally kickass covers!
    • Blackfoot's version injects some Southern Rock alongside the blues. Helps they're led by Lynyrd Skynyrd alumnus Ricky Medlocke.
    • Gary Moore's version goes even further, with shredding solos aplenty!
