Wagon Wheel – Against Me!

I’m celebrating that Lent is over by looking up all the bands I couldn’t listen to for six weeks and trying to find something new or fresh from their catalog. This would definitely fit. I’ve loved “Wagon Wheel” for years, but never expected Against Me! to do a version of it, or that it would actually be pretty darn good. This is from 2008, so several years before the Darius Rucker madness, when the song became a “thing.” And, pray, don’t forget that it’s Old Crow Medicine Show who did the original, the building blocks of which came from a Dylan basement tape recording on a B-side for the Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid soundtrack. Truly a legendary song with decades of history, this time done by a modern indie punk mover/shaker.
