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 #29: Young Al Capone
This week we return to Lars’ stone-cold-shredders-that-mean-nothing with 2000’s Young Al Capone. A post-apocalyptic barreling ripper with a surprise gospel refrain. Call and response is the name of the game here. Between Lars and either Matt’s gurgling bass lines or the makeshift choir. A wonderful apex of the album it sits on.
