Memorial Day Music
It’s Memorial Day Weekend here in the good ol’ U S of A.
Memorial Day is also known as Decoration Day. It’s a federal holiday for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. From 1868 to 1970, it was observed on May 30 each year. Now, the holiday is observed on the last Monday in the month of May.
As it is the unofficial start of Summer Vacation season, many people choose to go camping and grill in their backyards. Labor Day marks the end of summer vacation season.
But let’s remember the real reason for the day today - the men and women who died for our freedom.
As it is a holiday, I’ve put together a short setlist for today.
- Statler Brothers - More Than A Name On A Wall
- Sammy Hagar - Remember the Heroes
- Iron Maiden - These Colours Don’t Run
- Sodom - Remember The Fallen
- Metallica - Hero Of The Day
Thank you to our veterans who have fought for and continue to fight for us. My gratitude for those who ‘gave all’ is overwhelming.
Enjoy your holiday - however you wish to celebrate. Be sure to stop back in on June 1 for the next battle of the bands.
