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

Seeing how I’ve just come off of the road after clocking another six hundred miles on the Chrysler’s electronic odometer, and how Chad and Cole are running a cannonball drive to get here...

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...

BangShift Daily Tune Up: The Dave Edmunds Jam Slipping Away Featuring Sideways Dirt Track Action From England!

I have no idea what trips memories in my head. Something reminded me of this video, which I remember seeing on television in The Gap as one of my ex wives was trying on 37 pairs of pants and then not...

BangShift Daily Tune Up: Lord, Mr. Ford – Jerry Reed (1973)

We’ve featured Jerry Reed tunes as part of the BangShift Daily Tune Up before so consider today a refresher course on Reed-ology. This song was a ¬†number one hit for Reed on his 1973 album...

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

So Chad has been on a BS Daily Tune Up hot streak lately. I’m commandeering the musical end of the ship today and we’re going right back to my favorite era of car songs, the early 1960s....

BangShift Daily Tune Up: Wreck Of The Old 97 – Johnny Cash

Sure this isn’t a car song, but it is about speed and danger, so that’s close enough for us. This song has been around since the 1920s in one form or another and it actually tells the...

BangShift Daily Tune Up: Little Stick Nomad – The Super Stocks (1963)

We’ve told you the story of the early 1960s group the Super Stocks before. They were assembled by Gary Usher and had a few flashes of glory before going their separate ways and pretty much all...
