“45” – The Gaslight Anthem

Top 1% Song.

“45” is the lead track and lead single from The Gaslight Anthem‘s fourth album, Handwritten. It was their first release on a major label (Mercury Records) and was their highest charting song ever.

For me, this is a top 1% song. The hook, lyrics, and performance are all first rate. I had a very difficult time choosing between the album version and this fantastic acoustic version from 89.3 (The Current).
