Loaded is the fourth studio album by American rock band the Velvet Underground, released in November 1970 by Atlantic Records' subsidiary label Cotillion. It was the final album recorded featuring founding member and main songwriter Lou Reed, who left shortly before its release. Loaded was ranked 110 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Loaded is likely The Velvet Underground’s most popular album – Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll have gone on to be rock radio staples. Critically, it’s recieved the same acclaim that their other three records have – universal praise. The album was widely influential – Graham Coxon claims it to be a huge influence on Blur and Phish covered the entire thing in concert on Halloween, 1998.

Loaded was the result, and with appropriate irony it turned out to be the first VU album that made any noticeable impact on commercial radio - and also their swan song, with Reed leaving the group shortly before its release. With John Cale long gone from the band, Doug Yule highly prominent (he sings lead on four of the ten tracks), and Maureen Tucker absent on maternity leave, this is hardly a purist's Velvet Underground album.

The Velvet Underground are very inspiring, as soon as I finished listening to this album I wrote a song and that was the first song I myself wrote and enjoyed and if I ever make it "big" I will definitely owe some of my success to them. This cd was actually a bit of a surprise. The combination of pop and rock on here is great. The Velvet Underground didn’t go out with something innovative or different; they went out with some fun songs and some meaningful ones. If it weren’t for those softer songs I would be writing in this paragraph that I thought that this album was just made to finish off their contract or something like that, but even though it might have been (I don’t know anything about the bands history, so I’m not sure) the songs on this album show that they at. least wanted to go out with some dignity and not just a ty album full of filler.

With 1970 came the Velvet Underground album "Loaded", an album that is essentially, if you excuse the cheesy term, "hitsville"; some of rock's most iconic songs appear on this album in the form of "Sweet Jane" and "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'", alongside other amazing deep cuts such as "Who Loves the Sun" (a fantastic opener to the album. Or consider a donation?
