Butch Vig has pro­duced a num­ber of sem­i­nal al­bums. Here are four he’s proud­est of . . .

Men's Style (Australia) - - Priority Male Music -

1 FOO FIGHT­ERS Wast­ing Light ( 2011)

“I think it’s the most rep­re­sen­ta­tive of how they sound as a band, and I think I was re­ally able to cap­ture the vibe of what they sound like.”

2 KILLDOZER Twelve Point Buck ( 1989)

“They were the rea­son Nir­vana called, the rea­son Smash­ing Pump­kins called, and I think that record still sounds pretty cool and badass.”

3 FREEDY JOHN­SON This Per­fect World ( 1994)

“In the height of these al­ter­na­tive rock bands I was do­ing, I made a record with Freedy, who’s a singer-song­writer. It’s a bril­liant record and he’s a to­tal star as a song­writer; he’s in­cred­i­ble.”

4 AGAINST ME New Wave (2006) White Crosses (2010)

“I love these two records. I’m very close with [ front­woman] Laura Jane Grace and I think these records sound in­cred­i­bly pow­er­ful.”
