Mudbug Music: The Perfect Soundtrack for Your Next Crawfish Boil

Fat Pat's "Tops Drop" on the way to buy the crawfish in Kemah and UGK's "Wood Wheel" for the drive back.

These are just two of the songs that Rocks Off's Nathan Smith recommends to start your day-long crawfish boiling festivities. If you think that zydeco music and only zydeco music is the right accompaniment for your next crawfish boil, remember that your house is not Ragin' Cajun and you live in Houston, not Lafayette.

Instead, follow Smith's advice and keep the music mixed: Gather up your Springsteen albums, your Explosions In The Sky MP3s and your Insane Clown Posse CDs that you usually keep hidden under your bed and get grooving.
