Listmaking blogger Robert of the Radish just published his top 14 songs inspired by Moby-Dick, and you can stream them in full at his site.

Along with shoo-ins such as Led Zeppelin’s “Moby Dick” and “Blood and Thunder” from heavy metal group Mastodon, the list includes nerdcore rapper MC Lars’s brilliant “Ahab,” the sleepily haunting “QueeQueg” from The Evangenitals, and other treasures. There’s even a 16-minute jazz exploration called “Ahab’s Leg,” though whether it’s about the captain’s pegleg or his intact leg is up to you to decide.

Margaret Guroff is editor and publisher of Power Moby-Dick.
