Drive-By Truckers Announce Greatest Hits Album

    Is it possible for a band that has never had a real “hit” to have a greatest hits album? Yes, as the recently announced Drive-By Truckers greatest hits comp, Ugly Buildings, Whores & Politicians: 1998-2009, proves. The southern rock titans are releasing the comp on Aug. 2, and it features 16 tracks running from their first album to their 2009 heights. I guess the real point of the comp is to make it easier for newbies to get into the band, and this should accomplish that. Here’s the track list:


    01 The Living Bubba

    02 Bulldozers and Dirt

    03 Ronnie and Neil

    04 Zip City

    05 Let There Be Rock

    06 Marry Me

    07 Sink Hole

    08 Carl Perkins’ Cadillac

    09 Outfit

    10 The Righteous Path

    11 Gravity’s Gone (Remix)

    12 Never Gonna Change

    13 3 Dimes Down

    14 Lookout Mountain

    15 Uncle Frank (Alternate Version)

    16 A World of Hurt
