... just like my Mama said, I'm goin' straight to hell.

Nah, it's not anything I've done, as far as I know. This is just a great old Southern country/rock song by a band named Drivin' and Cryin' that I just remembered. I've seen them live - I can't remember that much.

Been goofing today, so my apologies for having no real blog post. I've got plenty in mind though, a proposed Lady Gaga and her doggies screenplay, more about us 2nd-Class citizens, more mask madness, Kung Flu stupidity at the library, and much more, coming next week.

Straight to Hell is from this Atlanta, Georgia band's 1989 album Mystery Road.

The band:

Kevn Kinney – Guitar, vocals
Buren Fowler – Guitar, dobro
Tim Nielsen – Bass guitar, backing vocals, percussion
Jeff Sullivan – Drums, percussion, backing vocals

PS: Thanks, Peter. It took me 2 minutes into the song to remember that a Clash fan roommate used to play this long ago.

Alternate take on a theme, via The Clash.

PS: Yeah, Little Feat, but otherwise I can't think who to add to the list but possibly the Charlie Daniels Band. Yeah, he's questionable, mostly just country, but he did have that "South's Gonna Do It Again" which was a review of the Southern Rock bands.

Then, Molly Hatchet's "Gator Country" was very similar - all the insults were just in fun.

Oh, I got one, Czar, The Atlanta Rhythm Section. Peak Stupidity has featured the band 3 or 4 times already. (Good luck finding the posts!)
