Once upon a time, Reverend Horton Heat's music would have made many Stepford wives lock up their teens from the hip-swivelin' world beyond the high school sock hop.

With a rockabilly vibe, the band captures both a classic country twang and a raw outlaw power behind each song.

Reverend Horton Heat can be described as a rockabilly band. But why dumb it down to one genre? Featuring guitarist and lead singer Jim Heath, upright bass player Jimbo Wallace and Paul Simmons on the drums, the band mixes country, punk, big band, swing, and rockabilly along with a tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Heath originally came up with his latest record, Laughin' and Cryin' (2009), from his alter-ego, "Harley Hog." Drawing on Harley Hog's mood-swinging, southern personality, Heath decided that the album's rockabilly sound wouldn't be a permanent genre change from his usual punk style. Instead, the zany change was just a way to have fun with the audience. In other words: If Beaver Cleaver had a rebellious bone in his body, he would be begging to be Harley Hog.
