Two things you need to know real quick: First, “Pirate Rock” is a real thing. Second, the band Captain Bogg and Salty are great at it. If you don’t believe us, check out this video for their song “Pieces of 8ight.” There’s a rather lengthy intro, but the song kicks in at the 1:30 mark.
Captain Bogg and Salty were a band of pirates who sang songs about being pirates. They released four albums between 1999 and 2009 before going on permanent hiatus. Some members of the band went on to do the music in Disney’s Jake and the Neverland Pirates.
Happy “International Talk Like a Pirate Day,” everyone. Remember to knock it off at midnight.
