BangShift Daily Tune Up: Chicken – The Cheers (1955)

During the days of the “hot rod menace” in the early 1950s there was lots of hysteria in the streets about wild kids flying around in out of control cars and causing mayhem. Wally Parks...

BangShift Tune-Up: “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC, Live At Castle Donington (1991)

At the age of 64, Malcolm Young, the rhythm guitarist for AC/DC, has passed on. The older of the two Young brothers that were the root of the band (Angus, the lead guitarist, being the other),...

BangShift Tune-Up: “My Best Friend’s Girlfriend” by Nirvana (1994)

Recently, we ditched our satellite television service here at BangShift Mid-West and instead went all-internet entertainment, with one notable exception: a Bluetooth sound system for the house. We...

BangShift Daily Tune Up: Brand New Car – Mungo Jerry (1972)

Most people know the band Mungo Jerry from their campy hit “In The Summertime” but the group has a lot more to offer than just that one unique tune. This song from their 1972 album Boot...

BangShift Daily Tune Up: The Super Stocks – Wheel Man (1963)

We’ve played you plenty of stuff from the 1960s studio group, “The Super Stocks” before and we’re going to drop some more musical fun by those dudes on your here today. The...

BangShift Tune-Up: “Highway Tune” by Greta Van Fleet (2016)

BangShift Daily Tune Up: Expressway To Your Heart – The Soul Survivors (1967)

It’s been a while since I posted a BangShift Daily Tune Up but this song is too good not to share. This is one of the songs I can clearly remember jamming to in the back of my dad’s 1964...

BangShift Tune-Up: “You Don’t Know How It Feels” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (1994)

Tom Petty is one of those rare singers who doesn’t just transcend genre, but is able to transcend time. I grew up listening to his work, from the moment I was born to the moments as I type. My...

BangShift Tune-Up: “Here We Go” by Freestylers (1998)

For the most part, what I listened to in 1998 could best be described as “eclectic” and is best left in my music files for my own enjoyment when nobody is home. There’s rock,...

BangShift Daily Tune Up: Stick Shift – The Duals (1961)

The instrumental is a pretty foreign thing to radio waves these days. Back in the late 1950s and into the 1960s there were plenty of surf and hot rod themed instrumentals coming over the airwaves....

BangShift Tune-Up: “Dragula” By Rob Zombie (1998)

Once again, I use the BangShift Tune-Up as a way of motivating myself into action first thing in the morning. In this case, I need to go straight from waking up to pulling out the tools and tearing...

BangShift Tune-Up: “Leave Out All The Rest” By Linkin Park (2008)

As intertwined as music is to the lifestyle that we enjoy, whenever a staple musician leaves this earth, the feeling becomes more than just “another one gone”. Your mind goes back to...

BangShift Tune-Up: “Gear Jammer” By George Thorogood & The Destroyers (1985)

Whether you view truckers as hard-working types, dirty and dangerous, or the lone traveler on some forgotten highway where nobody ever roams, you have to hand it to the people who get behind the...

BangShift Daily Tune Up: The Star Spangled Banner – The Boston Crowd Takes This One Over

With today being Independence Day we thought it only right to feature the most important song in our nation’s history, the Star Spangled Banner. Our national anthem gets performed thousands of...
