About Austin KruegerAustin works as a cost analyst for TDS Telecom in the Government and Regulatory Affairs team. He has a marketing degree from UW-Whitewater and has worked in various departments including marketing, sales and network services since joining TDS in 2004. He is a huge sports fan – if he’s not at work, odds are you can find him at Miller Park, Lambeau Field, Camp Randall or the Kohl Center watching the game. In his spare time, he’s chairman of a local non-profit, avid music fan, rec sports MVP and an early adopter when it comes to most new technologies.
You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who has never heard any Beatles songs, but in this case, this is an album you don’t frequently hear played start to finish. Some of the hits on Help! are simply tremendous—and the lesser known tracks paved the way for some of the future experimentation the band would end up doing. Grab it today for only $5.
Countless tributes, covers and a future full-length biopic about the group, it’s obvious how much the ragtag group of southern rockers impacted the music landscape. If you’ve somehow truly never experienced the band before, give this one a shot today. It’s their best album to start with and is a great intro to southern rock—and for only $5? It's a steal.
The single “Radioactive” from this album hit major radio play, and it all blew up from there. The smash hit would spend a record-breaking 87 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100—but there's a lot more to Imagine Dragons than that one song. This album is great intro to a band you may think you know, but who just might surprise you.
With 16 Grammy noms and more than 100 million albums sold to date, the Red Hot Chili Peppers certainly have staying power. Californication is the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ seventh studio album and also their best selling to date. Today you can pick it up for only $6 and feel like you’re on a beach in California.
Devil Without A Cause was released in August of 1998. Praised for its ‘eclectic’ sound, the album has aspects of arena rock, country, heartland rock, metal and hip-hop. Sales were incredible, backed by lead single “Bawitdaba.” The album was certified platinum within six months and has been called one of the best of all time.
Some people like to poke fun at Coldplay because of the softer feel, but it’s no bother. Critical acclaim for this album was furious, Rolling Stone called Coldplay the ‘best band of the year’ and the album brought them a Grammy Award for ‘Record of the Year’ and it was number one on the charts and it has sold nearly 20 million copies to date.
This likely isn’t in your rotation, and unless you’re somewhere in your forth decade, this may never have been. But either way, give Don’t Say No a shot today. Being 38 years old, the album holds up extraordinarily well and it may be one of those happy rediscoveries (or discoveries, as the case may be.)
The success was fast and incredibly furious for this album. It brought the band two Grammy Awards, reached #1 on the Billboard Country charts, #4 on the Top 200 and has sold a jaw-dropping 15 million copies in the U.S. to date.
Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Conan O’Brien have had him on their shows multiple times and seems to really enjoy not only his music, but his overall personality. It’s likely just a matter of time for Stone—he’s got all the qualities you look for in an up-and-comer, he just needs that one big single to break radio and he might be a name we’re all talking about for a good while in the future.
Having been a fan of these guys for a while, it was a treat when a loyal reader requested a review this week. In the meantime, pick up Toulouse Street today for the criminally low price of $4.99. Toss it on in the car and you’ll be guaranteed to be rockin’ down the highway.
