Pop Music Stinks. These Artists Don’t.

Pop Music Stinks. These Artists Don’t.

When it comes to prolific and talented songwriters, not everyone is John Lennon or Paul McCartney. There aren’t many Bob Dylans or Willie Nelsons running around – especially in today’s world of music. Today, our radio waves are so rife – so utterly overfilled – with horrendous musical acts, that we tend to forget that there are, in...

Jury Duty Sucks; My Playlist, however…

Jury Duty Sucks; My Playlist, however…

Let’s get one thing out of the way: Jury Duty is a nightmare. We all hate seeing that piece of bad news in our mailbox. We all hate the idea of meeting up at the courthouse, in a month or two, just to be miserable together. Jury Duty, in essence, sort of makes you hate the fact that you have the right to a fair and speedy trial; in front of a jury of...

A Guitar Can Change Your Life

A Guitar Can Change Your Life

“Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’re gonna be rewarded.” – Jimi Hendrix Truer words have never been spoken, Jimi. In learning the guitar, there were countless times I considered ‘pulling a Hendrix‘, and taking myself out of my misery. But, I soldiered-on, and I really...

Sports Have Warped My Brain (so here’s some music stuff)

Sports Have Warped My Brain (so here’s some music stuff)

Ok, so this article has nothing to do with Jimi Hendrix. It’s just that seeing Jimi or hearing his music simply puts a smile on my face – so I thought I’d sort of ‘pay that smile forward’, so to speak. The real truth of it is, I had no idea what to write about today. I mean, how could I possibly choose? Do you go with the Kansas...

No Show Tonight

No Show Tonight

We’re off tonight, but keep your eye out for our NFL predictions, which will be posted on our site tomorrow. As an olive branch of peace, please accept our offering below. And please tell us why Jess Greenberg isn’t the most famous musician on earth. Share...

Great Albums, Front-to-Back: Matt’s Pick

Great Albums, Front-to-Back: Matt’s Pick

Confusion followed by sadness was the tone in the famous Abbey Road Studios on June 5,1975, the studio that shared the name of arguably the best Beatles album. It wasn’t the Fab 4 occupying the studio that day, it was the four members that make up the band Pink Floyd recording the Wish You Were Here album. Three of those four members were in the original...

Great Albums, Front-to-Back: Santa’s Pick

Great Albums, Front-to-Back: Santa’s Pick

When Mike brought to me his notion of writing about our favorite album, from front-to-back, I immediately loved the idea. I also immediately knew I would be writing about Bob Dylan. No musician, and possibly no one outside of my own family, has had a greater impact on me as a person. So, needless to say, choosing Dylan was easy. The hard part was which album to...

The Mister Cee “Best Of The Lox” Mix Will Make You Want To Beat Someone Up

The Mister Cee “Best Of The Lox” Mix Will Make You Want To Beat Someone Up

Mister Cee…..The Finisher.  LOX.  Enough said. Share...

Song Of The Day: 50 Cent – Hold On

Song Of The Day:  50 Cent – Hold On

Make no mistake, this is the best song 50 has released so far from his upcoming Animal Ambition album.  Hell, it’s probably the best song he’s releases in the past 5 years.  Hopefully this album will keep up the same level but I highly doubt it.  50 hasn’t really done anything to get me excited in a long time.  He’s...

10 Songs to Clean Your Soul

10 Songs to Clean Your Soul

I have long used the word ‘soap’ to describe my musical preferences. I say that because most of what people listen to is garbage and, therefore, it stinks. So, you put the ‘soap’ that is Dylan, Skynyrd, or Ray Charles on you; and you’re good to go. Here’s ten songs on this guy’s iTunes that are sure to get the stink...

Song Of The Day: Nas – Stretch & Bobbito Freestyle From 93

Song Of The Day:  Nas – Stretch & Bobbito Freestyle From 93

Man, I love releases like this. In preparation for his Tribeca Film Festival debut Nas drops an “unreleased” freestyle from the Stretch and Bobbito show in 93. Classic stuff right here. The festival will open this year with Nas’s documentary called “Time is Illmatic”. It focuses on the making of his 1994 debut Illmatic. Share...

Song of the Day – Disney Edition

Song of the Day – Disney Edition

It’s no secret I’m a huge Disney fan, so I’m comfortable enough to admit I’ve seen Frozen with my daughter 30 times. So when it won Oscars for Best Animated Picture and Best Song, I was pumped, but mostly because it was the only movie nominated that I’d seen (true story). The song that won isn’t even the best one from the...

Song Of The Day: The Heavy – Short Change Hero

Song Of The Day:  The Heavy – Short Change Hero

Heard this song during a commercial for Borderlands 2 and was instantly hooked. It’s by The Heavy, they’re out of England and have had a couple hits before this. Mainly their track “How You Like Me Now?” which was featured in a bunch TV shows and commercials. Share...

Song Of The Day: Soggy Bottom Boys – Man Of Constant Sorrow

Song Of The Day:  Soggy Bottom Boys – Man Of Constant Sorrow

I will admit I never heard this song until the other day when I was flipping channels my girlfriend was flipping channels and stopped at O Brother, Where Art Thou? What a terrible movie. After that I started to do some research but finding out where this song came from and who wrote it is a challenge in itself. As far as I can tell it was written by Dick...

The Voice Is Back And So Is Bria Kelly!

The Voice Is Back And So Is Bria Kelly!

Well people, The Voice aka the best singing competition show on TV is back! While I wanted to come here and break down the first two episodes to give you all the top performances I just don’t need to. This is all you need to know about the first two episodes. Her name is Bria Kelly and she’s 17 years old. 17! She was on America’s Got...

5 Artists That Give Me Hope For Modern Music

5 Artists That Give Me Hope For Modern Music

Modern, mainstream music is slowly killing the soul of what music once was. I don’t care if you like One Direction, Miley Cyrus, or even Justin Bieber. It doesn’t bother me if you want to buy awful music off of iTunes by the album. It’s your life, buddy, do with it as you wish. But don’t turn around and tell me that it’s music;...

I Guarantee This Song Will be Stuck in Your Head for Weeks

I Guarantee This Song Will be Stuck in Your Head for Weeks

Some say this was the best Spring Break song of 2011. Others say it’s the best Spring Break song ever. So with Spring Break right around the corner, we felt we should reintroduce it to our followers that were under a rock the past 3 years and haven’t heard it yet. Jersey has Springsteen. NY has Billy Joel, Frank Sinatra and Jay-Z. Well for those...

Song Of The Day: Big Pun feat Noreaga – You Came Up

Song Of The Day:  Big Pun feat Noreaga – You Came Up

RIP to Big Pun, one of the illest lyricists to ever bless a microphone. I couldn’t make up my mind on which track I wanted to post because there are so many to choose from. Shouts to Coop for helping me out with the decision. You Came Up was track 20 off his debut album Capital Punishment, it featured Noreaga on the hook and was just lyrically...

Song Of The Day: DJ Clue feat Mary J Blige & Jadakiss – Back To Life

Song Of The Day:  DJ Clue feat Mary J Blige & Jadakiss – Back To Life

If you grew up listening to hip-hop in the 90’s you are very familiar with DJ Clue and his mix-tapes. Now don’t get me wrong, there were official DJ Clue tapes that were sold in stores like The Wiz and other places but if you were a true hip-hop head you went to Rebel Music and Kultjah and picked up his unofficial mix-tapes. Clue For President,...

Song Of The Day: Notorious B.I.G. – What’s Beef

Song Of The Day:  Notorious B.I.G. – What’s Beef

It’s just come to my attention that I have not done a song of the day featuring the Notorious B.I.G., so here we go. Probably the best double album to ever be put out Life After Death is a masterpiece. It showed versatility, it showed growth, it showed exactly how far Biggie Smalls had come since his Ready To Die album. What’s Beef was a message...

Song Of The Day: Sidney Samson – Riverside

Song Of The Day:  Sidney Samson – Riverside

For my birthday Ma Dukes renewed my subscription to satellite radio. I refuse to pay for any kind of radio so that is the only way I will ever have it. Someone needs to buy it for me. Contrary to what Mike D says Howard Stern and Pearl Jam Radio just aren’t enough for me to pay for it. Anyway, a return to satellite means a return to BPM and Electric...

Interview with Pink Floyd Drummer Nick Mason – 11/2/2011

Interview with Pink Floyd Drummer Nick Mason – 11/2/2011

2013 was a great year of guests for the Tri-State Sports Guys. But our producer Matt pointed out over the holidays that our first big name interview was not posted to our site. We interviewed Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason back in November 2011, when we were still posting everything directly to YouTube. So for all our new followers, here is that interview:...

Song Of The Day: Lorde – Team

Song Of The Day:  Lorde – Team

By now if you don’t know the song Royals by Lorde you’ve been living under a rock. If that is the only song from Lorde that you do know you’re an idiot. I guess we can’t all have the great taste in music that I have. Here is the newest video from one of the best tracks on her album Pure Heroine, it’s called Team. Seriously, if...

Old School Notorious B.I.G. Documentary

2DopeBoyz – If you have 15 minutes to spare (and let’s be real: you’re probably on this site while at school or work, so of course you do), you should definitely check out this this rarely-seen mini-profile on Chris Wallace from UK show Diary On Passengers, which details his relationship with then-wife Faith Evans, his support of Junior M.A.F.I.A.,...
