Favourite Track from Each Album - 2021 Edition

Sure the chart fervour has died down as we await the result, but that doesn't mean FD has to! How about some classic band forum fodder?

What is your favourite album track from each album?

Rules:
- No b-sides or non-album singles from an era
- No demos, bonus tracks or songs added as part of a rerelease
- Album tracks, album tracks, album tracks! That is, tracks on albums. Eg, Motorcycle Emptiness is a track on Generation Terrorists. Motown Junk is not.
- No abstentions! Even albums you don't like need a track selection
- I'm asking for your favourite - that is, not the "objective best track", but the one which means most to you, today

Least-favourite tracks would be a comparative piece of cake, for the most part.

I love threads like this. Super interesting seeing where people overlap and where they're completely at odds.
