Best-Ever Songs by Duke Jupiter

By Dom Nozzi

The songs found on this list are the best-ever songs performed by Duke Jupiter.

According to Wikipedia, Duke Jupiter originated in Rochester, New York [my hometown]. They were active in the 1970s and 1980s on Mercury Records, CBS Records, and the Motown subsidiary Morocco Records. They are best known for their hit single I’ll Drink tosweetthumb You.

Two long-time members of the band were Marshall Styler, who handled lead vocals and keyboards, and Greg Walker, who was a guitarist and also shared some lead vocals.

After the release of their first album Sweet Cheeks in 1978, Duke started touring with national acts. The band played a farewell concert in their hometown of Rochester in 1986. This ended a 13-year career for the band.

Criteria for this ranking:

• Groundbreaking
