We go way beyond “Margaritaville” in this playlist from The ExTeens front man. He’s got boozy numbers from Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard, Snoop Dogg, Squeeze, and AC/DC. Now just bring the libations.

Sure, you love “Up the Junction,” “Black Coffee In Bed,” and “Tempted,” but there are so many other tunes by Difford and Tilbrook to explore from “Wrong Side of the Moon” (1980) to “Patchouli” (2017).

David & The Dorks is an early example but other Dead spin-off bands include Old and In the Way, Go Ahead, Weir & Wasserman, Dead & Company, and Golden Gate Wingmen.
