I know next to nothing about The Budos Band, and don’t really want to. I enjoy that they’re somewhat mysterious, as though they sprung through a spacetime warp direct from the 1970s, untainted by the 21st century.

Their albums are The Budos Band I and The Budos Band II. This song is from the latter, which came out in August. It is called “Ride or Die.” If Grist was a late-’70s cop show instead of a wonky green blog, this would be its theme song.
