Rock The Country: The Georgia Satellites “Keep Your Hands To Yourself”

I don’t know if anyone could have seen into the future and realized that the Georgia Satellites were going to sound a LOT like the modern country bands of today when they got rolling back in the 80′s.

The band from (guess where?) Atlanta, Georgia was considered more of a Rock band at the time, their influences were more based in Southern Rock and even AC/DC.  Ironically though as time went on the Country artists developed more of a Rock swagger and stage show that was reminiscent of the “Satellites”.

“Keep Your Hands To Yourself” was a massive hit and really the only one people remember.  They fizzled out when Alternative came into the scene.  At the time there wasn’t a place for them in Country so they became lost in the shuffle.

Frontman Dan Baird had a mild hit with “I Love You Period” after he left the band in 1990.  He became a fan-favorite in Alt-Country scene over the years and still likes to crank out the tunes live.  The Georgia Satellites also continue to play live as well without Baird.
