Who would have thought a couple of Canadian bands could provide some good "southern rock" songs:

Junkhouse - "Jesus Sings the Blues"

The Tragically Hip - "New Orleans is Sinking"

That Junkhouse song has a bad ass groove, Love it! Love that fuzz tone guitar. Has kind of a Nazareth/ZZ Top? Zeppelin mix goin on. Very cool tune.
Listen to that one Bigmarty, you'll like that one.  ;D

The second link wasn't available at least in US.

They had a few more good ones but loved those two. Going to have to make a thread for them, as good as their four or five hits were. I'm willing to bet they had some more good stuff that got overlooked.

I always thought ARS were more sophisticated with their music than say Molly Hatchet or Blackfoot. Kind of like the southern version of Steely Dan.
