Song of the Day – “Hot Rod Lincoln” – Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen

My pappy said
Son, you’re gonna
drive me to drinkin’
if you don’t stop drivin’ that
Hot Rod Lincoln

The first rap song? Nah. But Cody and His Airmen were among the first country-rock outfits, and their cover of this Charley/Stevenson song is the definitive version. From 1971’s Lost in the Ozone.
