Selten hat ein Album zu seiner Zeit so wenig Exemplare verkauft, gleichzeitig aber die Rock-Szene bis heute so nachhaltig geprägt und verändert. Keine Liste der wichtigsten und einflussreichsten Alben der Rock-Geschichte ist vollständig ohne das epochale Debut von The Velvet Underground. -- Radikal und ohne jegliche stilistische Beschränkung etablierte die New Yorker Band eine bislang noch nie gehörte Art von Rock. Einflüsse von <<Minimal Music>> und avantgardistischer Klassik gehörten genauso selbstverständlich dazu wie Pop, Rhythm & Blues und eine den Punk bereits vorweg nehmende Spielart von Rock. -- Doch nicht nur musikalisch, auch inhaltlich setzte das Quartett mit Hauptsongschreiber Lou Reed neue Maßstäbe. Realitätsnahe Songs über Sadomasochismus (<<Venus in Furs>>), Drogensucht (<<I'm Waiting for The Man>>, <<Heroin>>) und Prostitution schockten 1967 nicht nur besorgte Eltern, sondern machten das Album auch zum düsteren, nachdenklichen Gegenentwurf des fröhlichen, unbeschwerten <<Summer of Love>> - und wurde deswegen so gut wie nie im Radio gespielt. -- Dazu das Cover von Andy Warhol! Ein Siebdruck mit einer Banane, die tatsächlich geschält werden konnte (!) und mittlerweile unter Sammlern zu Höchstpreisen gehandelt wird. Zweifellos: ohne dieses Meisterwerk würde die Rock-Musik heute anders tönen. (Quelle: http://www.drs.ch/www/de/drs/themen/musik/pop-rock-musik/4968.50-meisterwerke.html, 16.10.2008)
