Ten Bands We Wish Had Their Own Beer

Categories: Booze

Notorious B.I.G. - Notorious I.P.A.
Ain't nothin' wrong with releasing a Biggie Smalls-branded beer posthumously. Of course, we doubt Biggie would have been super into an IPA, but it's catchy, no? The one-time king of the East Coast rap scene starred in a beer commercial for St. Ides back in the day as part of a marketing campaign that utilized a slew of other rappers including Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and B.I.G.'s nemesis, Tupac. St. Ides is actually less a beer than a particularly potent malt liquor, but I firmly believe Biggie's legacy deserves something better than mint malt liquor. Everyone deserves something better than malt liquor.

Isley Brothers - Stout!
Just picture your average wedding dance floor. The bride and groom are out there cutting a rug with their closest friends, perhaps sipping on a drink or two. The song ends and the music fades, but before anyone makes it back to their seats, the smooth voice of Ronald Isley fills the reception hall and a parade of beer maids run in through every entrance waving bottles in the air. They make their way onto the dance floor and begin handing out beer to all of the partiers kicking their heels up and throwing their hands up and throwing their heads back and requesting, "STOUT!" And now you know exactly how my future wedding is going to go.

The obvious one is Z Z Top's Waiting on the Buzz. I'll think on it some more.


I don't think Paul McCartney wrote Live and Let Die in 1983 as your story says.
