King's X for Dr. King

King's X: dUg Pinnick, Ty Tabor, Jerry Gaskill

King's X have been one of my favorite bands ever since Gretchen Goes to Nebraska and faith hope love by king's x. Their music started running through, in, and over my head.

Today is Martin Luther King Day, and Dr. King might have approved of this powerful Texas rock trio, with two white guys and one black guy, making powerful, profoundly spiritual music (to little acclaim) for over 35 years.

If you don't listen to King's X, or if you just know "Over My Head" or "Dogman", check 'em out--they still kick ass.

Nice guys, too.
