Thomas Bangalter – Outrun (1995)

I still think it’s funny that Thomas Bangalter’s name contains the key string ‘bang.’ ‘Banger’ has become a somewhat popular term to describe a song that hits super hard, i.e. has an aggressive beat and impactful / punchy sound, typically used in the context of electronic dance music. This track is a banger, produced by perhaps the reigning king of bangers. Bangers. Bang!
