Rise Against—'Swing Life Away'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.


Rise Against is a solid band to listen to if you’re trying to get motivated—to lift weights, to win a sports game, to kick the crap out of a fluid mechanics exam, or whatever. It’s a punk rock group that tends to crank out some fast-paced, hard core stuff, but this acoustic song—Swing Life Away—is a slower, softer number. And I dig it.

No mention of the beautiful Ford truck in the video?

(great song choice... I leave this one be when it comes through on my iPhone, rather than skipping after hearing a song for 30 seconds as I do with most other tunes of my phone)
