Yesterday we put the spotlight on strong debut records in honor of the 1987 release of Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction.

We have another album anniversary to celebrate as on this day in 1977, Stiff Records released My Aim Is True, the debut album from Elvis Costello.

For that reason and because we felt like we were able to barely scratch the surface of a great Coffee Break yesterday, let's get into round 2 today.

For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear off of strong debut records?

Here's what we played yesterday:

Lauryn Hill "Everything Is Everything" The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998)
The Jesus and Mary Chain "Just Like Honey" Psychocandy (1985)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Maps" Fever to Tell (2003)
Nas "N.Y. State Of Mind" Illmatic (1994)
The Strokes "Last Nite" Is This It (2001)
Joy Division "Disorder" Unknown Pleasures (1979)
Patti Smith "Gloria" Horses (1975)
