Dazed and Confused (Motion Picture Soundtrack)
The bulk of Richard Linklater’s budget for Dazed and Confused went to its soundtrack licensing, and it was worth every penny. This isn’t a critic’s list of ’70s classics—this is what small-time American stoners actually listened to. Indulge in Rick Derringer, Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas, and other greasy, hairy, unapologetically hedonistic pleasures of ’70s hard rock. If you weren’t lucky enough to be there, these songs will let you live it vicariously, burning rubber in a buddy’s El Camino in the school parking lot.
