No.

Solid song, but not even a top 10 DBT song.

Decoration Day I'll agree with. Don't know how it slipped my mind. Outfit is definitely behind Danko/Manuel though. Great song but Danko/Manuel is genius

I disagree with that. But I don't really care for non isbell songs.

Always found DBT to write corny songs without isbell.

Oh my. Is this a joke? Had never heard that song, but could not make it through the whole thing.

I mean I wasn't being completely serious but Drive By Truckers is one of the practically universally loved bands on this board.

If you don't like them that's fine but if you can't acknowledge that Danko/Manuel is a fine piece of songwriting then I dont have faith in your ability to recognize good songwriting.

I feel the opposite.

I feel like songs like Never Gonna Change and Outfit were the corniest in their repertoire.

agreed. So long as we're limiting it to Isbell songs. Because Cooley has something to say about it with Zip City and Women Without Whiskey.

I may be the only DBT fan in the world who doesn't like zip city.... But I really hate that damn song.

Women without whiskey is phenomenal though
