I never even realized there was such a thing as National Beer Day. Whoever came up with this idea, this one’s for you!
Here’s an eclectic assortment of songs about drinkin’. Not all of them are about beer, per se, but all of them are damn good.
The Asylum Street Spankers – Beer
Little known but incredibly talented, The Asylum Street Spankers remain among my all-time favorites.
Todd Snider – Beer Run
Popular on public radio in the 90’s, this one has stayed with me and is always somewhere in the back of my brain when making a B-Double-E-Double-R-UN.
Billy Currington – Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer
Hafta have at least one pop country tune in here and I couldn’t agree more with this one.
Tom T Hall – I Like Beer
Classic and just plain beautiful.
John Lee Hooker – One Bourbon One Scotch One Beer
Yeah, I know you grew up listening to the George Thorogood version. But the John Lee Hooker version is way, way better.
Black Flag – Six Pack
Are you kidding me?
Merle Haggard – I think I’ll just stay here and drink
M.E.R.L.E ‘Nuff said.
Snoop Dogg – Gin and Juice
What list would be complete without the D-O-Double-G?
Tom Waits – The Piano Has Been Drinking
This could have been the only song in the list and it would have been enough.
PSYCHOSTICK – BEER!
This one’s just for fun. Not the best song in the world but damned entertaining.
