The Hold Steady is a Brooklyn-based rock band formed by vocalist/guitarist Craig Finn (ex-Lifter Puller) in 2004. Wanting to capture the sound of bands such as the Replacements and the Grifters, he recruited guitarist Tad Kubler (also ex-Lifter Puller), drummer Judd Counsell, and bassist Galen Polivka. In 2005 the band grew to include Franz Nicolay (of The World/Inferno Friendship Society) on keyboards and Bobby Drake took over on drums following Counsell's departure.

  1. Stuck Between Stations  -  679,993 plays
    It started when we were dancing
    It got heavy when we got to the bathroom
    We didn't go back to her place
    We went to some place where she cat-sits
    She said, "I know I look tired
    Sequestered In Memphis  -  439,619 plays
    She put $900 on the fifth horse in the sixth race
    I think its name is "chips ahoy!"
    It came in six lengths ahead, we spent the whole next week getting high
    At first i thought that she hit off some tip that she got from some other boy
    We were overjoyed
    Chips Ahoy!  -  454,902 plays
    Me and my friends are like
    The drums on "Lust for Life"
    We pound it out on floor toms
    Our psalms are sing-along songs
    This old town is lifeless
    Constructive Summer  -  424,043 plays
    I was not involved up at the Northtown mall
    As a matter of fact I didn't even know that that's where it happened
    I was France Ave when they came out dancing, I was Lyndale South, I was kicking it with cousins
    We were talking about going clubbing but instead we just started drinking
    I've been straight since the Cinco de Mayo
