So I am going to start a new series where I pay homage to some of the greatest rock bands ever. Today I pay respect to 38 Special. Guys hold on to your hats and ladies hold on to your panties because this is going to be a wild ride.
First off let’s look at the name of the band. Really, how many bands have a gun in their name? Ok, so a few, but how many are named after a .38 special? Only one I know of and that band kicks ass!!!!!
The next thing is these guys have been together FOREVER!!!!. Over two decades. That is music to its fullest. With great songs like Hold On Loosely. Man oh man that is rock at its best. With some of the greatest guitar solos I have ever heard this band kicks major ass. Who has 14 albums if pure rock including one of the best Christmas albums in the world? .38 Special that’s who. I mean with a Christmas album titled A Wild-Eyed Christmas you know that this band and this album rock hardcore. Look at the rest of their album titles and tell me they don’t rock.
.38 Special – their self titled debut album. Look at the title. Tell me what hits harder.
Special Delivery – second album with some awesomness for your ass. Oh yeah it’s a special delivery for your ears.
Rockin’ Into the Night – do I need to tell you what you will be doing? I don’t think so.
Wild-Eyed Southern Boys - A man of wealth and power, Is out on the dance hall floor, He got a champagne Eldorado parked outside the door, And he's looking for a honky tonk angel, But he don't stand a chance in hell. C’mon with lyrics like that other bands should learn from them.
Special Forces – who kicks more ass than special foprces?
Tour de Force – sure the Tour de France is hard but what about the Tour de Force? Oh yeah long before Lance Armstrong was riding bikes .38 Special was already whooping that ass.
Strength in Numbers - been told that all my life and I think that .38 special started it all.
Flashback: Best of – the best of?!?!?!? On one album? You bet your sweet ass. A whole album of ass kickery.
Rock and Roll Strategy – see on this album they are trying to help you rock out like they do and they put it all on this album for you. Look at the chorus to the song of the same name as the album
I got a system that’s guaranteed
I got a rock ‘n roll strategy
It ain’t no science but it works for me
It’s just a rock ‘n roll strategy
Get in my car
Turn up the radio roll the windows down
It ain’t no science but it gets me around
It’s just rock ‘n roll strategy
Turn it up
Bone Against Steel – they have a song called Deja Voodoo on this album. Now they are getting wicked on your ass. They rock.
Resolution – 1 : the act or process of reducing to simpler form: as a : the act of analyzing a complex notion into simpler ones. Helloo they have been rocking and kicking ass so long that they are breaking it down so everyone else can catch up.
Live at Sturgis – playing live at Sturgis? Rock.
Drivetrain - released in 2004. This title can only mean one thing. There is going to be a driving force of rock in your stereo to make you shake.
So here you can see why this band has lasted so long. I could talk all day about this band but I will just leave you with a picture to prove they rock. Pay attention to the bald headed guy. He’s the drummer. Tell me he doesn’t rock.
