10 Electroclash Songs That Still Hold Up in 2012

I-F - "Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass"

This 1997 track from Dutch producer I-F predated, and more or less created, electroclash. In mapping the evolution of the more faceless techno of the mid-to-late 90s to big-hooked club-pop of the early 00s, this is the missing link. (Leaving it out is like saying Iggy Pop wasn't punk because punk didn't exist before he did.) It’s a rumbling juggernaut, with a goofy sense of humor.
