Cheap Tunes Tuesday: Asia

Asia’s self-titled debut was released in March of 1982. Initial response was mediocre to say the least—until the single “Heat of the Moment” began hitting the radio in April.

The aforementioned single would reach all the way up to #4 on the Billboard charts and begin to open music fans ears to the band.

Alter Bridge

Cheap Tunes Tuesday: Alter Bridge

Alter Bridge released their debut album "One Day Remains" in August of 2004. If you’re a fan of Creed’s earlier work, before they got a bit more into the pop genre, you’ll enjoy this too. By no means is this a perfect record, but it’s solid—start to finish—and quite possibly better than any Creed record, which consistently had letdown tracks. Today it can be yours for only $5

ZZ Top_Eliminator

Cheap Tunes Tuesday: ZZ Top

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.

Cheap Tunes Tuesday: Boyz II Men

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.
