The advent of digital jukeboxes has almost rendered this category obsolete. Willing to spend an extra buck? A song is out there. But at the Jeanie Johnston Pub, there is no need to blow the mortgage in the name of drinking ambience. The non-dial-up area on its Rock-Ola Jukebox boasts Joy Division, the Smiths, the JAMC, three Afghan Whigs albums, Tupac’s All Eyez on Me, every Metallica track, and the entire Stone Roses catalog. This sonic glory hearkens back to the days when the bars people chose were based on available music selections. You can also indulge that late-night craving for “Don’t Stop Believing” with their Saturday-night karaoke blowouts.
