The Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band In The World

Ever notice how most people who claim to be “The greatest (fill in the blank)” don’t live up to their own hype?  Surely you remember (or were) the kid who said “I can take any of y’all in a one-on-one,” only to be humiliated by the fourth string point guard.  Some bands can be like that.

The Supersuckers are not shy.  Their website starts with the heading “The Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World”.  They will tell you what they come to do (“Rock Your Ass”).

And then proceed to do just that.

I only recently became a fan of the Supersuckers.  I’m not even sure how I heard about them, but I was hooked from the word “go”.  This is rock and roll music – it’s loud, gritty, and can go from dark to fun in 3.4 seconds.

Dark:

Fun:

And even a little heart broken:

They’ve also recorded a country album or two (one had an amazing duet with Steve Earle on the Rolling Stones song “Before They Make Me Run”).

So if you’ve missed out on the Supersuckers in their 20 years of existence, check them out.  I’ll bet my sacrilicious ass you’ll enjoy it.
