Street Release Date: 09/19/1995

Imagine for a moment that the survivors of the Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash in 1977 had decided to keep going and had replaced Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines with the Clash's Joe Strummer and Mick Jones. The reborn band would have had it all: redneck country-rock with in-your-face class consciousness and cockney punk-rock with swing and guitar chops. It would have sounded a lot like the BottleRockets on their second album, The Brooklyn Side. When the BottleRockets' chief singer-songwriter Brian Henneman wants to sing about the American class structure, what does he do? He tells jokes about buying a "1000 Dollar Car." "A thousand-dollar car ain't gonna roll," he sings over grinding, Neil Youngish guitar chords, "till you put at least another thousand in the hole/Sink your money in and there you are:/The owner of a two-thousand-dollar thousand-dollar car." --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars A little bit country, a lotta rock n roll July 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great record, with some of the B-Rox's best songs. If it's still available at $7.99, it's an absolute steal. These guys remind me of the Drive-By Truckers, with a little bit of Rolling Stones thrown in for style. Brian Henneman is a terrific songwriter who knows how to write (and sing) songs about lovable losers. Standout songs on here include "I Wanna Come Home," "Welfare Music," and "$1,000" car. Just good old American rock, with a side of twang.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock-N-Roll! September 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nothing really fancy here. Just good ol rock and roll, if your into that sort of thing. I am, and I think is a really good record. Henneman and crew are not breaking any new musical ground (even for back in it's day) here, it's not experimental, they aren't combining any influences that others haven't. But if you like rock and roll, this a good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Classic Alt-Country March 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is just fantastic! Every song is soulful, witty, edgy and just plain brilliant. Brian Henneman and The Bottle Rockets are without a doubt the best alt-country band making records today. I cannot say enought good things about this record. BUY THIS CD!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED!
