201: Ted Leo

When it comes to musicians with a punk rock past (and a punk rock present, for that matter), there aren't a lot of folks that are as legit as Ted Leo. I'm not just referring to aesthetics or the knowledge of punk rock history. I'm talking about someone who really attempts to embody the best aspects of what punk rock has represented over the decades. Plus he's written a ton of badass songs in the last 25 years – including a few with Aimee Mann for their upcoming album as The Both, which we hit on during our conversation.
