Editorial Reviews

In memory of the stranger who had perished, the boys set about learning these new songs, injecting elements of their own traditional mountain style. And thus, from these unlikely beginnings, an entirely new musical and cultural synthesis was set in motion. Rockgrass was born. As if the Creator Himself had uttered, ''Let there be Rockgrass!'' Now it's six releases later, and Hayseed Dixie continue their tradition by covering songs such as 'Whole Lotta Love' and 'Dueling Banjos' on their latest release, 'Hot Piece of Grass'. Along with these classics, Hot Piece of Grass'also contains some Hayseed Dixie originals, including fan favorite 'Kirby Hill'. Cooking Vinyl. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars modern ROCKabilly June 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD
these guys are just outstanding! they come from true bluegrass lineage, with the Reno brothers following there legendary father. These guys are showing the old dog bluegrass traditionalist a few new tricks, real rock and roll done in that Appalachian styling. Barely Scotch (yes that's right and he's the lead singer) has said it best; "cuz a good song is a good song and getting drunk and playing music is getting drunk and playing music"

This album will blow you away; and if you get a chance to see them live? Grab your mason jar of the white lighten, your banjer and be ready to dance. 5 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Track List is wrong February 19, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Over all the Cd is fun to listen to. I dig bluegrass covers of rock songs. The only problem I have is the fact that on my copy "Ace of Spades" was replaced by "Rocking in the Free World" I REALLY wanted to hear a bluegrass cover of Motorhead. A few other songs were replaced with other songs. If you like this type of music I would recommend it but bewarned that what you order isn't exactly what you are going to get,

5.0 out of 5 stars Pickin' and....what was that? November 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
WOW. Love it. Someone else reviewed this as a novelty. I really have to disagree. The songs are pretty well chosen on all of Hayseed's CDs. They certainly put a lot of feeling into it. They also happen to be GREAT musicians.
Nope. Not a novelty.
Rumour has it that these boys being from east Tennessee may have consumed some homemade adult beverages and herbal growth in their time. From such influence came the idea to take well-known songs mixed with some originals and play the hell out of them on traditional instruments.
If this legend is true, I would give a year of my life to have been there when somebody said, "Hold my beer and listen to this."

4.0 out of 5 stars Better when it's not a novelty. January 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Hayseed Dixie have made a living covering various rock bands in a classic Appalacian bluegrass fashion. The first half of their new album continues that tradition with hillbilly renditions of Black Dog, War Pigs, Holiday (Green Day), Ace of Spades, Whole Lotta Love, Whole Lotta Rosie, and Runnin' With the Devil. The second half features originals (and the inescapable Dueling Banjos). Hayseed Dixie does a great job in what they set out to do: they manage to integrate fast banjo picking, fiddlin' and lonesome vocals into the covers, while still retaining loyalty toward them. But like Dread Zeppelin, Moog Cookbook, Gimme Gimmes, and all the others, it's ultimately a novelty imbued with irony, and after your curiosity is sated and you've played it for a couple of friends, it's not exactly something you'd listen to again. The album actually picks up midway with Hayseed's original compositions, where they become an actual bluegrass (or newgrass) band, and you can appreciate the musicianship and songwriting without having to hear it shoehorned into the ironic, kitchy covers.
