10 Reasons You Should Probably Listen To More Blues
1Albert King
Born Under a Bad Sign

Wallow in your self pity without being a whiny bitch: Moping around listening to sad songs makes you sound like a whiny bitch. It's okay to feel down, but at least do it like you're a real man with two fully functioning balls between your legs. Even if your balls aren't fully functioning, stop being a bitch, put on some blues, and face the day like a man. A la "Born Under a Bad Sign" by Albert King or "Black Lung Heartache" by Joe Bonamassa
2The Derek Trucks Band

Blues brings the theory: If you think your musical opinions are reputable and educated because you memorize dream theater time signatures in your spare time, listen to some blues. As a lot of blues is centered around the musical element - guitar in particular - there's lots of technical musical wizardry to satisfy the theory nerd in all of us, but it's tasteful and integrated and not shit a la the recent explosion of shitty nu djent prog metal bands and their shitty fans. Listen to the dual-drum solo in Mountain Jam by the Allman Brothers or the world music fusion of Derek Trucks' Songlines and then stop listening to tool clone bands
3 Albert Collins
Ice Pickin'

Blues is sexy as fuck: Lets say you're bringing a lass home after a successful date and while she's standing in your sexy expensive modern lounge waiting for you to finish whatever important shit you're doing in the other room she spies a guitar in the corner and asks you to play. If you shart out some stupid gross-ass grunge riffs I guarantee you will not get any head. Blues is sexy as fuck. Albert Colins was an ugly motherfucker, but he got ass because he played smooth blues and he played it well and bitches loved him
4B.B. King
Completely Well

Blues brings the feels: As previously stated, whining is for bitches, singing the blues is for men. Blues brings the feels and brings 'em fight. Listen to "The Thrill is Gone" by B. B. King or that one John Lee Hooker song where he sings about boats and you will never feel the same way again.
5 Lightnin' Hopkins
Country Blues

Blues has the history: Blues songs get passed down from generation to generation and interpreted dozens of times by dozens of people. Blues songs have stories to tell, the collective wisdom and emotion of the generations they pass through. It's cool as shit
6Gary Moore
Still Got the Blues

Blues is a gateway to hundreds of other genres: Blues inspired everything and that is a true fact. This also means blues merges with dozens of other genres on all sides - rock, country, folk, psychedelic and stoner music, jazz, R&B, soul, funk...etc
