Think you have better taste than we do? Prove it. Submit songs to the Reader Interactive Jukebox, a place to listen to music together.

This week, Steve Bogira serves Steve Goodman stadium sounds in the way only a depressed Sox fan mocking depressed Cubs fans could, Aimee Levitt has fun with numbers, and recently reunited bands abound.

Also hear Mikal Cronin, the Ty Segall collaborator who actually cares about melody; Koko Taylor, the blues queen whose presence looms over Grant Park this weekend; and the Dirtbombs, whose music sounds exactly how you'd expect a band with two drummers named the Dirtbombs to sound.
