Reasons - epic guitar solo is epic. Lyrics are outstanding. And its on GATS. (which is equally outstanding, don't care what the band say.)
Known for not much at all

GATS & EMG had the best singles hands down.

I'll go La Tristesse as a song, though I've never heard a live version of it that didn't sound better than the recording which always seemed far too "muted".

Autumnsong, well... I felt pity with James having to sing that line about hair...

Revol! It's the song that made them my favourite band. I loved GT and GATS but these albums were not good enough to put them above everything. Then came Faster and I thought this was their best song together with Motown Junk, but I really couldn't believe there would be another one as good as this. I'll never forget when I first heard it. I thought it was the best song ever, never was more excited than that, to release something even better after Faster was simply unbelievable. I think that Faster - Revol succession made them my favourite band, even if THB would not have been that great.

Cannot possibly decide between EMG and Tristesse. Sorry
