Zayn's "Pillowtalk" reached #1 on the Hot 100, something his former One Direction bandmates never achieved.
Sleigh bells aren't very punk, but they play throughout the Stooges classic "I Wanna Be Your Dog."
Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" was the #1 single in Australia for 13 weeks. It holds the record for the longest running chart topper Down Under since the first ever ARIA Chart was listed in 1983.

Christine McVie wrote "Songbird" for Fleetwood Mac's Rumours album in just half a hour after she woke up in the middle of the night with the song in her head.
Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Two Tribes" features British actor Patrick Allen reading extracts from a government civil defense leaflet.
Does Angus really drink himself silly? Did their name come from a sewing machine? See if you can spot the real stories about AC/DC.
Did Eric Clapton really write "Cocaine" while on cocaine? This question and more in the Clapton edition of Fact or Fiction.
Chris and his wife Tina were the rhythm section for Talking Heads when they formed The Tom Tom Club. "Genius of Love" was their blockbuster, but David Byrne only mentioned it once.

U2, Carly Simon, Joanna Newsom, Brian Wilson and Fiona Apple have all gone to Van Dyke Parks to make their songs exceptional.
The Brazilian rocker sees pictures in his riffs. When he came up with one of his gnarliest songs, there was a riot going on.
I can't hear this song without thinking of the phrase 'Run, you fools'. :)
Although unlikely to be recorded, Jim Steinman still holds up hope for the fourth and final installment of the "Bat Out Of Hell" series which he'd like to title "Bat Out Of Hell IV: The Final Bat". Meat Loaf, on the other hand, is adamant the "Bat Out Of Hell" journey ended with "The Monster Is Loose".
"And we're all about to see the light", can be interpreted as "we're all about to die, about to meet a higher power, etc.", which is likely a "holy" experience, if you believe in a higher power. I know what the lyrics are, as printed on the album/CD jacket because I own it. Maybe I'm wrong, but listen to him sing it a few or several times. If it was a misprint on the jacket, there may have been so many copies printed & sold before the error was noticed that they just decided to leave it as is.
Either way, Bat Out Of Hell is one of my absolute favorite songs, and favorite albums as well.
My bride walked down the aisle to a shortened, instrumental version i recorded of "Heavan Can Wait".
I LOVE MEAT LOAF!! :)
My band Raised On Radio does a good rendition of Paradise too, 9 minutes be damned :)
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes.
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight's shining through.
Then like a sinner before the gates of Heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you." that chorus has got to hit home with many people in love, people mis judge love and think to little of it in my opinion and they don't realise how good it can be.
