Song of the Day: Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked
Today’s song is Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked by Cage The Elephant.
Alt-Rock / rap rock.
Anyone who grew up in the 2000’s (or played Borderlands) is extremely familiar with this one.
It’s recognizable (and lyrics are fun to sing along to).
He said, “Give me all you’ve got.
I want your money not your life,
but if you try to make a move, I won’t think twice”.
The warbled sound hearkens back to my memories of Courage the Cowardly Dog.
Weird connection to make, but that’s what pops up.
The song grows stranger the more you listen to it. Very strong ‘late-aughts’ vibes.
Feels like a fever dream after a bit, and what better song to share on Halloween?
