Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced, len-ərd-skin-ərd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern hard rock genre during the 1970s. Originally formed in 1964 as the "Noble Five" in Jacksonville, Florida, the band rose to worldwide recognition on the basis of its driving live performances and signature tunes "Sweet Home Alabama," and "Free Bird." At the peak of their success, three members died in an airplane crash in 1977, putting an abrupt end to the band's most popular incarnation.
Surviving members re-formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with lead singer Ronnie Van Zant's younger brother Johnny as frontman. A version of the band continues to tour and record, with only Gary Rossington of its original members remaining as of 2012. Lynyrd Skynyrd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006.

Another band that needs no introduction.

I got into these guys back in high school, before I was really even into music as a whole. I heard Sweet Home Alabama on the NASCAR Thunder 2002 video game and loved it. I heard rumblings somewhere online saying that the song (and the band) were racist, so I did a little research on them and quickly came to the opposite conclusion. Once I heard The Ballad of Curtis Loew, it was a wrap, and I knew I really liked them.

I haven't listened to them for a while, and I don't own any of their albums in their entirety. All I have is random songs that I managed to find using AltaVista's audio search back in the day. Here are but a few of my favorites that haven't already been posted.





And of course...
