Butch Walker teams up with Wooderson

Butch Walker & the Black Widows

Butch Walker started out as a member of acclaimed band The Marvelous 3 and has since enjoyed equal success as both a solo artist and producer. In addition to five studio albums released since 2002, he was named Producer of the Year by Rolling Stone in 2005 and his songs have been hits for artists like Weezer, Pink, Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne, Panic! At the Disco and many others.

We've been playing Butch Walker & the Black Widows on WNKU since sometime last year and love what we've heard. 

We also have our share of fans of the movie, "Dazed & Confused" here at WNKU, so when we saw this video we simply had to share it.
