#16 The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America

I'll be the first to admit, I just can't get into The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn's voice. More or less it's like he's reciting poetry or something over this pretty rocking music. It's very awkward and I don't know if there will ever come a time where I can accept that. That said, the Hold Steady is still really fun to listen to. Lyrics about sex, drugs, and drinking make for great party music. But they aren't a one trick rock and roll pony. Even the couple of ballads on the album were remarkable. So please, sample a couple of tracks from The Hold Steady's 2006 release "Boys and Girls in America."

  • The Hold Steady - Stuck Between Stations

  • The Hold Steady - First Night
