Music for your Inner Pirate

Music for your Inner Pirate

And what a better way to feel like a pirate than to jam like one? Many bands across nearly every genre have taken pause from their otherwise pirateless songwriting to contribute their talents to the theme that, as we agreed earlier, is pretty cool.
