No, it’s not a cover.
I struggled pretty hard on narrowing this down to one song, but this came on and I couldnt’t get out of my head and I figured that’s as good of a criteria as any. Every Wimps album is really fun; super hooky power pop about getting old basically. Their new one, Garbage People might be their best. If you enjoy this song, you’d probably like the rest. Check ‘em out, they don’t get nearly enough love.
I get sent to Seattle a fair amount which is fine because there's no shortage of songs about it.

I was also delighted to find that a "bike shorts" tag already exists.
One of my very favorite active bands. This is the best song on their new record.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

I wasn't going to do one of these, but I was driving around late tonight listening to his music and this song came on and I decided I had to. This is from a few years ago when Soundgarden reunited.
Guess where I'm off to?
Here's Mr. Snider's take on the Talkin' Blues.
Ahh, Seattle, an entire city on surge pricing.

This is as close to a star grab as you'll get out of me. Nevermind was released Sept. 24, 1991 - I was 11 years old. It was my first "rock" album and it was a cassette*. After one listen, I flipped it back over and played it again. After about 10 listens, I began to understand that if there was stuff like this out there, then the world was a much bigger place than I'd previously comprehended. As such (and I'm not prone to hyperbole) Nirvana changed my life. Thanks for listening...

*Remember those? I have a 10-year-old nephew who had never seen one before last week...I almost choked.
