Is Drunk Girls LCD Soundsystem’s finest hour? No, of course not. But does it feel like a night of reckless boozing in New York City? . This drinkin’ blues song was first recorded in 1953, becoming one of several of its kind to reach the Top Ten on the Billboard R&B chart. John Lee Hooker popularized the tune with his 1966 cover, but Thorogood took it to a whole new level of bitching and moaning in his 1977 version, borrowing another of Hooker’s songs, "House Rent Boogie," to serve as a backstory to explain the sorry singer’s situation. Beer and whiskey odes abound, but there aren't too many moonshine songs. Just this one, really. Perhaps that’s because folks who drink methanol-laden mountain dew end up wearing overalls with one strap and having just as many teeth. Written by the Big Bopper, he of the Day the Music Died, White Lightning took George Jones to No. 1 in 1959.
