“Folsom Prison Blues” is one of the most notorious songs of the legendary Johnny Cash, originally recorded in 1956 and released by Sun Records in 1957. Cash received uproarious applause and emphatic whistles as he played “Folsom Prison Blues” during a live concert for inmates at San Quentin State Prison on February 24, 1969. It’s this timeless spirit of rebellion and anti-conformity that inspired JETBOY to release their own version of the famous tune. JETBOY’s “Folsom Prison Blues”
