    The CDs on the jukebox at EL MYR are an ever-shifting lot that reflect the eclectic tastes of Little Five Points. Metal, punk, disco, old-school country and old-school hip-hop spin side-by-side – just like the patrons who frequent the neighborhood burrito bar. Local CDs span from such classic Atlanta names as Smoke to more recent offerings from Mastodon. The rest of the selec-tion features everything you ever want to hear by the likes of the Misfits, Tom Waits, Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, the Kinks, Joe Strummer and dozens of others. Come for the burritos, stay for the mu-sic. less...

    Nestled unassumingly at the side of the bar in the cozy downstairs Little Vinyl Lounge at THE STAR BAR is heaven in a steel and glass box. Yes, the current machine is one o' them new-fangled CD-playin' gadgets. The old one was the "real" thing with actual 7-inch "records". But still, vintage country chestnuts sit contentedly by '60s garage rock and '70s classics, all in their shiny modern format, ready for your crackle-free listening enjoyment. It's all music, friends, so pump some money in that there slot and let the good times roll. "437 Moreland Ave. 404-681-9018. www.starbar.net" less...

    Blind Willie's
    Filled with 45s, the BLIND WILLIE'S jukebox is a genuine relic of the pre-digital era. The focus is on old blues, soul, classic R&B and early rock 'n' roll, but you'll also find country, swing, Tejano and zydeco.

    Filled with 45s, the BLIND WILLIE'S jukebox is a genuine relic of the pre-digital era. The focus is on old blues, soul, classic R&B and early rock 'n' roll, but you'll also find country, swing, Tejano and zydeco. While the selections change periodically, culled from the endless stacks of dusty vinyl stored in the club's basement, the mix usually includes both standards (Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, James Brown) and obscurities (TV Slim, Jimmy McGriff, Noble "Thin Man" Watts). "828 N. Highland Ave. 404-873-2583." less...

    1051 Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-874-0939 Not only is it one of the few bars where you can get "healthy" bar food, the jukebox remains righteous as well. This is where you go to impress your friends with your alterna-tastes and ability to pick your own mix tape that lasts for one night only. Want a little Smiths with Iggy Pop, Beastie Boys, George Clinton and Johnny Cash? If that doesn't work, you can get Patsy Cline, the Pixies, Liz Phair, Bob Dylan and Radiohead the next go around. A repository of our nostalgic tastes, the jukebox here has it all. It'll remind you of your days cruisin' with your parents in the back of the station wagon, all the way up to what you're playin' in your Jetta today. less...

    I'm usually there about once or twice a week. I pop in for happy hour or maybe later. I just like the selection. You can find some of the stalwarts of classic rock and it goes on back to some extreme country classics, like early rockabilly. From Willie Nelson to Iggy Pop to Bob Wills to the Replacements, plus a heck of a lot of stuff I wouldn't listen to otherwise, all sounds at home here. less...

    Double your pleasure at the Highlander by playing both the front and back (our fave) jukeboxes, which house everything from Sly Parliament funk to Butthole Surfers junk to Circle Jerk punk.

    Double your pleasure at the Highlander by playing both the front and back (our fave) jukeboxes, which house everything from Sly Parliament funk to Butthole Surfers junk to Circle Jerk punk. Mellower options can be found — John Lee Hooker, Nat King Cole, U2 — but it's mostly hard-rockin'. The Waffle House jukebox serves up new pop (Britney Spears, 'NSync), old pop (Lionel Richie, Mariah Carey) and the "Waffle Do Wop," plus many other uniquely Waffle House songs that are not, we repeat, not humorous, intentionally or otherwise. Our waitress Linda actually threatened to leave when she realized we'd played "Special Lady (at the Waffle House)" for her. On the other hand, where else can you get one play for a quarter? less...
