Jackyl: “My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine’s Ass” (2010)

Jackyl, who debuted in 1992, missed the heyday of hairband metal, but nevertheless earned distinction on several fronts.

First, their signature hit “The Lumberjack” made use of a chainsaw as a lead instrument (Jesse James Dupree’s solo is rather amazing) and featured lyrics that would make AC/DC proud and your mom blush:

I ain’t jacked my lumber, baby

Since my chain saw you

The band also holds two spots in the Guinness Book of World Records, one for playing 100 concerts in 50 days and another for playing 21 concerts in a 24-hour period.

As of 2020 the band still tours.
