George Thorogood and the Destroyers are taking the stage at Spirit Mountain Casino on Saturday, September 16th, and we’re preparing for the show in the best kind of way: revisiting their best music. Buy your tickets for the show, then get caught up on your favorite hits as you count down the days ‘til the concert kicks off! Here are a few of our go-to songs to get you started:
"Bad to the Bone"
You've heard it in everything from Terminator 2 to The Parent Trap. It's been used to celebrate during Mariners games, to mark the entrance of WWF wrestlers to the ring, and to signal the start of Monster Truck Rallies. "Bad to the Bone" is the ultimate anthem of trouble - but the good kind of trouble.
"Who Do You Love"
Bo Diddly recorded the original version of "Who Do You Love" in 1958, but it wasn't until George Thorogood and the Destroyers covered it 20 years later that it became a mainstay on the radio. It's also one of Thorogood's favorite songs to perform live and always gets the audience out of their seats.
"I Drink Alone"
Jim Beam and Johnnie Walker. Wiser's and Old Grand-Dad and Jack Daniel's. George Thorogood and the Destroyers get right to the point paying homage to their drinks of choice in this classic sing-a-long song.
When Howlin' Wolf wrote this Blues staple in the 1950s, he paved the path for dozens of renditions from other artists. Although it's been covered by The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, and even John Mayer, George Thorogood's version continues to be a fan favorite.
"One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer"
George Thorogood and the Destroyers took Johnny Lee Hooker's 1966 version of "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," combined it with another one of Hooker's songs, and created the epic medley that we all know and love.
Ask a room full of people what their favorite George Thorogood song is, and there’s a good chance that you’ll get a different answer from each one. It makes sense: With dozens of hits to choose from, there’s never a shortage of beloved George Thorogood music. Join us for the show at Spirit Mountain Casino to experience your top songs live!
