About Austin KruegerAustin works as a cost analyst for TDS Telecom in the Government and Regulatory Affairs team.

Most of us have probably heard the popular “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit,” but Jefferson Airplane’s legacy is so much more than that. They were key players in the psychedelic rock sound of the 1960’s thanks to their certified platinum album. You can score this bit of awesome music history today for only $5.
It’s easy to think this genre isn’t your style, or that you’ve never heard any of these tracks. However, songs from this record alone have been featured in hundreds of video games, commercials, movies and television shows. This is outstanding music to exercise to, crank at the keyboard, to or sit at home and zone out to. Give it a shot today, even it’s not normally in your wheelhouse. For only $5 dollars, it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than a real hour in Vegas.
Today’s featured band has been going strong across six different decades. Obviously, if they’ve been around that long, they’re at the tip of your tongue and a major part of mainstream music, right? Sort of. I can absolutely promise you know half their catalog, but probably don’t listen to them on a regular basis. Having sold 25 million albums in the U.S. alone, they’re one of the top-100 selling artists of all time.
Van Halen became infamous for their public disputes and several break-ups and reunions. But make no mistake; they’re also famous for making great music. VH1 ranked them the 7th best hard rock artist of all-time. And worldwide, they’ve sold more than 80 million records. Throw this album on today for $5—even if it was $20 bucks, it’s guaranteed to satisfy.
Today’s band are one of only four acts of all time to hold the number one spot in the Billboard 100 for at least 50 weeks cumulatively. That puts them with Elvis, The Beatles and Mariah—very good company. It makes sense though, as what they did from a vocal/harmony standpoint was so unique. Although they're still making music today, there's no question that going back to their original tunes is the way to go—especially for a fiver.

While so many things about the telecommunications business change daily, one thing has been very consistent over the last almost five decades—TDS and its employees actively give back to the communities we serve. So although bringing TDS Fiber to Sun Prairie, Wis. is new for us, it’s not an exception to our philanthropic approach. Our latest effort? Sponsoring the upcoming Tri 4 Schools triathlon on June 24th. Learn more about this great event and get some tips for finishing strong.
The Yeah Yeah Yeah's It's Blitz album crosses so many genres, if you’re a fan of rock, punk, alt rock, pop or anything electronic, I think you’ll enjoy this. You really do hear the time they took to make each single into something greater than jamming away in the studio, and that’s a nice change of pace in today’s world which lacks production values. Give these guys a chance today for $5 bucks— I think you’ll find yourself tapping your toes and craving more.
Backed by absolute mega-single “Smooth,” the album jumped into the forefront immediately upon release. The follow up single "Maria Maria" would also be a commercial success—which catapulted the album’s early sales. Now, some music fans agree the band is up there with the all-time greats, and some feel like they never had that ‘breakout’ smash hit album or single. Those who believed the latter, give this post, and this album, a once over (especially for only $5!).
Charlie Starr, Paul Jackson, Brit Turner and Richard Turner formed a band called Blackberry Smoke back in 2001. Based out of Atlanta, Georgia, they have released five studio albums with very modest success. Where they’ve generated a major following is with their live shows. If like me, you’ve never heard these guys before, give them a shot. Cheap is the best way to experience new.
