Rock underdogs 42 King have their sights set to conquer mainstream radio, tour the world and hitch a ride on a Space-X rocket to become the first band to play a show on Mars. Maybe that last one is a bit of a stretch but that’s why we dream.

If you could tap into the first recorded memory logged inside the brains of the dudes in 42 King.. you’d probably hear some sort of scream and bad ass guitar riff. That’s the metaphorical bread and butter, baby. The tasty, timeless, Rock n roll ingredients. Nothing over processed and slicked to oblivion. Just raw, organic rock music.

42 King is a wild bunch of good-time-having-hooligans, looking to make you smile and get you out of your seat. Singing about escapism, encouraging everyone to fight the mundane and make sure you remember to BREAK FREE from the chains of a remedial society and keep your party alive!

Life is way too short to not party it up. And we don’t mean party in the sense of getting black out drunk and puking on your best friend... though we’ve all been there. It’s escapism. 42 King preaches escapism, that’s why we get up everyday with a guitar on our back and jump around to the bad ass beat of getting out alive.

We’re all flesh and blood. We share thay common bond. And though this ancient platform of music 42 King wants to connect with the entire world. It’s not about the money or fame. It’s about the gift of connection through sound. When the thud of the speakers hits your chest, and a bad ass howl echos through the night sky, guitars churn, the drums make you dance and a field of people enjoy the same beautiful moment.. that’s what we’re here t do. That’s what we want to do. Until we’re dead.

Nothing’s more insipring than watching someone break free from the motions of a life they don’t want to live and start having fun. Remember... That’s the worst that can happen if you start doing what you love. You might have a little fun.

From the backwoods of Kentucky to the mountains of Tennessee, 42 King are some good ole boys from the heart of America.

The name 42 King is derived from Elvis Presley. The King died when he was 42.


With two singles released and fans now mounting in the tens of thousands 42 King scream rebellion, preach escapism and have an insane work ethic. They consider their band to be a gang and their fans gang members.

42 King invite you all in, because rock n’ roll has no boarders. Turn the volume up to that metaphorical 11, be free, escape and freak the fuck out.

Long live Rock N’ Roll.
The King is here.
