Nineteen (84)

Another Friday has rolled around, so that means it's time to roll out another theme weekend!  Are you ready to flash those devil horns and sell your soul for rock 'n roll?  This weekend is all about celebrating the original Man in Black (or red, I guess), the Santa Claus of Halloween, ol' Scratch himself!

To kick it off, today's song is by self-proclaimed "Greatest Rock Band in the World," The Supersuckers!  This group has been around since the late 80s and lives in Seattle, but their sound is pretty far from the angsty grunge associated with that town during that time period.  They fall much more on the mindless fun side of rock 'n roll and also have a sizable country influence, even recording an entire country album called Must've Been High and collaborating with Willie Nelson and Steve Earle.

"Born with a Tail" is from their 1995 album The Sacrilicious Sounds of the Supersuckers and shows off their hard-rocking, good-timing metal side, with all the  devil-loving swagger that entails (pun always intended).  Oh yeah, you know I'm in league with Satan!
