The Top 10 Spoon Songs & a Band Retrospective

#6 Rent I Pay

Spoon have always been good at writing great rock songs with some simple beats and simple chords, and a lot of heart. The AC/DC influence is big on “Rent I Pay”, the opener of They Want My Soul. It’s a big attack, and a return from an almost 5 year hiatus of the Austin, Texas band.
