The Athens, Georgia-based Drive-by Truckers have been called the greatest rock band in the world by Blender magazine. They don't seem too proud or embarrassed by the title when it's brought up.

The band is run as a democracy. It has to be; they have three singers and three guitarists. There's not a lot of room for even a benevolent musical dictator.

Songs performed: "Easy on Yourself," and "Dress Blues."
