Put another dime in the jukebox, baby

groovyOne of my favorite rock bands of late is an Aussie group called Jet.

Before I even heard their music, I already knew I was gonna like them as their name hinted on Band on the Run, which is one of my all-time favorite albums. And then, a friend at work loaned me her Get Born CD, and I was instantly hooked. It’s a nice blend of AC/DC and sixites British Invasion garage rock, which never gets old in my book.

The song Are You Gonna Be My Girl sounds like it came out of a jukebox in a diner when I was five. It’s got that old-fashioned R&B shuffle beat that makes you want to shake yer booty and party like it’s 1965.

Check it out…

  1. Aren’t you kind to do an Aussie band. I love Jet. I saw them live a couple of years back and they were fantastic. Their live set is much more bluesy and they have this FAB keyboard player. Nic Cester has one of the best voices around. A great band!

    I would love to see them live. I haven’t gone to a concert in years. Perhaps, a case of… too old to rock, too young to die.

  2. You describe the song so well, it does sound like an old-fashion song, it has that flavor that sort of reminds me of the Beatles but a slight modern twist with a little bit of classic touch

    I heard of Jet but never listen to them before, will have to check out their albums

    I’m so glad you liked it. I might’ve guessed it’s a little bit edgy for your taste. But I like everything.

    Well, almost everything. 🙂
