Ryan Adams has 30 minutes of new rock & roll that'll save your workday

If you don't already own a copy of Ryan Adams' 1984 7-inch, then you probably never will. The physical copies of one of the more raucous records from the the 39-year-old singer-songwriter sold out long ago, but at least you've got the Interwebs to bail you out as far as hearing it goes.

Other outlets are calling this the Ryan Adams "punk" or "hardcore" record, since he's described it as his "homage to the halcyon days of the earliest releases from Dischord, SST, Tough & Go and their ilk," but it sounds more like a straight up rocker to us.

Regardless, it's leaps and bounds from that slow-burner of a record he released a decade ago, and it's available for full stream. Have a look at the tracklist and press play below. The next 3 -minutes of your life will thank you for it.

Do a little rain dance for tour dates even remotely close to Florida.
