I’ve told anyone who will listen that the Drive-By Truckers are the best active American rock band.  Take Outfit off their 2003 record Decoration Day.

Mighty fine rock and roll.  I love the lines “So don’t try to change who you are boy, and don’t try to be who you ain’t.  And don’t let me catch you in Kendale with a bucket of wealthy-man’s paint.”  Go buy that record now.

Join the best series in the blogosphere: Quasi Fictional’s “What is a blog to you series.”
