We finish out Rock Month 2019 with our collective pick, Blue Öyster Cult! John and Hunter take a look at the discography of the classic line-up, from their self-titled debut, all the way to the iconic "Fire of Unknown Origin". We also discuss their later career, their influence (or lack thereof), the rich themes of their songs, and the large cast of characters outside of the band that contributed to their music. Go listen, and check out some further viewing below!

"Veteran of the Psychic Wars", one of the handful of tunes BÖC wrote with sci-fi/fantasy author Michael Moorcock.

 

 

As John mentions, for kids growing up in heartland America, the only place you could hear any MC5 was on a BÖC live record.

 

 

As mentioned on the show, BÖC guitarist Buck Dharma produced a little-known solo album called "Flat Out".
