Top Five Really Punk Bluegrass Songs

by Water Tower

“Salty Dog Blues,” Morris Brothers
Google “salty dog” while keeping in mind that this song is from the late ’30s. There is something just so filthy about the term.

“Rye Whiskey,” Tex Ritter
The lyric goes: “Them that don’t like me can leave me alone.” Punks were hardly the first degenerate antisocials.

“Alabama High-Test,” Old Crow Medicine Show
Driving around in a tour bus with all sorts of things.

“Tennessee,” Jimmy Martin
A song about where he was born and raised—similar to PDX punk pride.

“Nobody’s Business,” Benton Flippen
“I like to gamble/ Get drunk and ramble/ Nobody’s business what I do.”

SEE IT: Water Tower (formerly Water Tower Bucket Boys) celebrates the release of Where The Crow Don’t Fly on Friday, Feb. 24, at McMenamins’ Kennedy School, 5736 NE 33rd Ave. 7 pm. Free. All ages.
