Christmas has come early! That is assuming you asked Santa for the harrowing tale of a contemporary everyman beaten to rock bottom by modern society, bureaucratic institutions, and his ex-wife, all set to spacious, face-melting guitar interplay.

Either way, Drive-by Truckers have stepped up to fill your pre-holiday void by offering a free download of “Used to Be a Cop,” the first track off their forthcoming album Go-Go Boots. You can grab the song below.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

You can pre-order your copy of Go-Go Boots and get all sorts of cool extras here.
