UNDERRATED: Fleetwood Mac's 'Tusk'

FX's much-hyped '80s spy series "The Americans" showed a few flaws in its early going, but one inarguable decision was to open with an intense, action film-styled sequence backed by this classic. Somewhat derided in its day for the decadent (and brilliant) choice to include the USC marching band as part of its single mix, "Tusk" and its insistent drum patter are creepy, vaguely paranoid and close to perfect.
