Best Rockabilly Band (2010)

The Sugar Daddys

Neo-rockabilly trio the Sugar Daddys have been called the "rockabilly Blink-182," which probably has more to do with the playfulness and swagger within the standup-bass-guitar-drums template that lead singer Chuck Daniels brings onstage than with the goofy stage shows. Not that the Sugar Daddys aren't funny; their sense of humor transcends the 1-4-5-in-G exercises that people have come to expect from rockabilly bands (their albums' secret tracks ape everyone from AC/DC to Flight of the Conchords). Plus, no matter how rockabilly their sound is, their material is still inspired by such universal themes as drinking, heartbreak and tattoos.
