This song never gets old. This is Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. The song is S.O.B., meaning exactly what you think it means.

 

The seven-man band is led by Missouri-born Nathaniel Rateliff. Rateliff is from Hermann, MO, a small town about three hours east of the small town our fearless leader is from.

Rateliff’s band includes Patrick Meese on drums, Luke Mossman on guitar, Wesley Watkins on trumpet, Andy Wild on sax, Joseph Pope III on bass, and Mark Shusterman behind the keyboards.

Sonuvabitching Nathaniel and the Night Sweats

I’m gonna need someone to help me

I’m gonna need somebody’s hand

I’m gonna need someone to hold me down

I’m gonna need someone to care

I’m gonna writhe and shake my body

I’ll start pulling out my hair

I’m going to cover myself with

The ashes of you and nobody’s gonna give a damn

Son of a bitch

Give me a drink

One more night

This can’t be me

Son of a bitch

If I can’t get clean

I’m gonna drink my life away

Oh oh

Oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh

Oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

Now for seventeen years I’ve been throwing them back

Seventeen more will bury me

Can somebody please just tie me down

Or somebody give me a goddamn drink

Son of a bitch

Give me a drink

One more night

This can’t be me

Son of a bitch

If I can’t get clean

I’m gonna drink my life away.

“Here’s the thing with me and the religious thing. This is the flat-out truth: I find the religiosity and philosophy in the music. I don’t find it anywhere else.”  Bob Dylan

“Music is for every single person that walks the planet.” Robert Plant

“All of these situations involve aspects of a ritual where soldiers come together and participate, either by listening or singing/yelling along with the lyrics, in organized, pre-combat actions. Many times these actions are repeated before each mission or patrol. In this way, metal and rap are means of creating aspects of social ordering. The soldiers psychologically prepare themselves for the possibility of combat through the shared experience of music…Music is a means of establishing the identity of the group and supports the feeling of togetherness through a ritualized musical experience.” The Ashgate Research Companion to Modern Warfare.

“Music has been an integral part of warfare and the soldier’s life since the dawn of history. Even the instruments on which it is played have themselves acquired great symbolic power — a regiment’s drums are second only to its colors as an emblem of honor and tradition. In the 18th century, the act of enlisting was described as ‘following the drum…” William Trotter
