List of songs with “Duluth” in the lyrics or title

This post was launched in 2009 and the list of Duluth songs continues to expand as new ones are reported. In mid-2018 the gradual process was begun of including links to posts with audio (and video if available) of the songs.

This Saturday


Venus from ATPH is DJing space-lounge music @ the Main Club on Friday night, too.

Setting the record straight

The best song by the Replacements is “I’m in Trouble” from  Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash. The best song by AC/DC is “Back in Black” from Back in Black. The best song by Ol’ Yeller is “Sulfur” from Nuzzle, and the best from the Glenrustles is “3 Perverts” from some Shaky Ray comp.  G’n’R’s best song is, of course, “Paradise City”, but mainly because of Slash’s guitar freak-out at the end. We all know that the best song featuring a sample from the theme song to “Sanford & Son” is “Old Man” by Masta Killer, featuring ODB and the RZA.

“Six Days”, “Dean’s Dream”, “Tacoland” and “Take Me Apart” are all tied as being the Dead Milkmen’s best songs, which means either a) the Dead Milkmen are really good at making mediocre songs I like or b) the Dead Milkmen are really good at making a bunch of really good songs.

Finally, I’m sure we can all agree that the best song ever is “Debaser” by the Pixies, from Doolittle.

This is my very first time doing this, so please bare with me…

YOU SHOULD BE HEARD!                                                                                                                                                                                             

I bought a house so I would have a place to build a recording studio. Well, Bar None Recording and Graphics is up and running (still with a couple of fine touches to deal with!)and we’re looking for local musicians who want to make a decent demo! We have 32 tracks, effects, a vocal booth and a drum tank. We also feature sleeve design, logo design, even t-shirt design!

We’ve waited for a long time to get started, and I kniow it’s a long road ahead, but now is the time!                                  YOU SHOULD BE HEARD!

I’m just going to post this and see what happens … HAVE A GOOD ONE AND STAY KIND.

Duluth’s Izaak Walton League is taking on the federal government (National Coast Guard and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service) to prompt federal protection of our shared resource (visit for more information about this effort). Minnesota and Wisconsin, have already begun taking steps to clean up ballast water, but varying regulations from state to state are likely to create headaches and confusion among the shipping industry. The current effort calls for a unified solution for this national problem. Come listen to some good music and help protect our Lake.
