The 11th Hour is a podcast where two dudes in their 40s discuss a different Rancid song each week. They reflect on their lives, their (inexplicable) fandom, and why certain parts of our youth continue to hold meaning beyond simple nostalgia. Is it a midlife crisis or honest self-reflection? Join us on a journey to the end and find out. Follow along on Twitter or Instagram and find The 11th Hour on your favorite streaming/podcast app (Stitcher, Apple, Spotify, etc) – and, of course, always on Foxy Digitalis.
Episode #15: Red Hot Moon

Rancid take chances that pay off, but also manage to self-sabotage themselves. Where does this rank in the pantheon of Rancid ska songs? How good is that hook? Does Skinhead Rob have a volume knob hidden somewhere?
