15 on the 15th: Way Down in Missouri Where I Heard This Melody

Salus populi suprema lex esto

Nathaniel Rateliff (& The Night Sweats)

Nathaniel David Rateliff was born in St. Louis.

The Hooten Hallers

They win the award of best band name on the list.

Reggie and The Full Effect

Over ten years after it came out: still one of the most tragic music videos out there.

Gravity Kills

Story of the Year

A couple of these Missouri natives spun off and formed another KC band: Greek Fire. Also of note: This album, Wolves, was crowd funded in three days in 2017.

St. Lunatics

Nelly is the most recognizable member of St. Lunatics, which also features Murphy Lee, Ali, Kyjuan, and City Spud.

Chingy

AKA Howard Bailey Jr. High School Throwback for me.

The Grisly Hand

Weirdly, these guys don’t have a Wiki page yet.

Sheryl Crow

“… did you know when you go it’s the perfect ending to the bad day I was just beginning…”

Toya

Middle school throwback.

Tech N9ne

AKA Aaron Dontez Yates. Co-founder of Strange Music record label. Honestly, Tech N9ne is like the uncrowned king of the collab; he works with so many varied, awesome artists.

Taylor Momsen (of The Pretty Reckless)

Now, TPR is actually based out of NY, but lead singer Momsen was born in Missouri. So this counts.

Chuck Berry

An icon. Who on this list, doesn’t owe a little something to Chuck Berry?

The Bottle Rockets

Great lyrics.

An Epic, No Less

Christian band, as you can probably tell from the lyrics. Thought I’d end this playlist on an uplifting note!

Jessie Gutierrez

Honorable Mention:
Puddle Of Mudd

Special Thanks to Johnny Cash‘s Missouri Waltz for the lyrics used in the title
