Superb Band. As influential in their own way as The Beatles. Some of their music is harsh and abrasive. However, other tracks are truly beautiful.Not for everyone but interesting for those who like their lyrics a little on the dark side.

Very creative and influential band. One of my favourites. Their debut is basically flawless and their other albums are pretty great too.

I love how The Velvet Underground isn’t just dark disgusting music, as great as they make it. They also have composed some of the most beautiful, and joyous music ever created.

The '60s witnessed a tectonic shift in art with mostly American pop-art movement (led by Warhol), and I believe The Velvet Underground represents the music side of it, as an art historian and a fan of their music, I respect the woırk they have done (including the pioneering work they did in Exploding Plastic Inevitable)

All 4 of their albums are among the greatest of all time. Lou Reed is truly a mastermind.

Amazing artists, I just don't like White Light all that much. Also, Squeezed doesn't count.

I can just look in disbelief at the comments here. They really were one of the most innovative bands ever, and if you're not 100% into them (like me) just don't rate. It's like giving the Beatles 50/100 cause you don't like them or diss Nirvana cause they have 'bad guitar solos'... I mean for example I don't love Beatles too much but it's not possible for a sane person to discredit the art and importance of these bands.

For their first 3 albums these guys just casually invented entire genres with every other song.
