Jose’s Featured Track

When Did The Music Die?

It’s a fact: nearly every song on the new music scene is horrible. Unlistenable. Generic and anemic. And until now, most people thought they simply had to live with it. But how can we? If it’s true that music speaks where words fail, then just what the hell are we being told? Nothing you should believe in.

Unless that is, you are listening to the fat-ass truth Jose Nation is laying out to you. Founded on the bedrock of classic rock with a unique twist all its own, the music of Jose Nation has come to save and sustain the masses. Click on a track below and reclaim your soul while you have a chance.


Discover the Magic Of Jose Nation

What is a man? Is he a mass of muscles and bone, pushed through the air and water of earth by the electrical impulses fired by grey matter until he meets resistance? And upon meeting this resistance, is this man merely jutted chin and furrowed brow, defiantly poised for battle as the delicate ballet of war engulfs the world? And if the war takes him, what then? What is left of this man? Charred bones and a whiff of regret.

Or is a man this: his ideas. His heart. His mind. His thoughts and creative appetites crumpled together into genius revelations of passion living throughout the ages, now and forever, as a fantastical diversion from boredom on the internet. Obviously, we at Jose Nation think it’s the latter.


Follow our pal Nicky as he navigates the trials and tribulations of office life, and watch as he discovers that not everything that glitters is gold. Sometimes it’s just wet.


Pedestals are nasty. Cold and unapproachable, they’re a relic from a bygone era; a tool for oppressors. Jose hates anything placed on top of them, and works tirelessly to topple arrogance from its perch.


Hell Is For Children traces the exploits of a modern-day Holden Caulfield named Pendel Haight as he tears through the lives of everyone who loves him in this blistering social media experiment by Jose Nation.

About Jose Nation

strip1aJose Nation, a resident of Brooklyn, NY, attempts to rock on a regular basis. He drinks beer, eats meat, listens to rock music, and until recently could be seen behind the drum kit for the explosively popular NYC band the Shallow Divers.

Times have changed.

Jose was crushed to witness the band grow apart over the years, but has spiritually regrouped and begun his musical aspirations anew as a hotter than all-fucking-get-out solo act.

Jose is the last of the truly renascenceian men. Just as adept with the pen as he is blazing the neck of his Fender Strat, Jose smokes a trail of pure, epic, cultural madness as he smacks the shit out of what you think pop culture is supposed to be.

When the others zig, Jose zags…and vise-versa. Anything you place upon a pedestal, Jose will knock to the ground and tear from it the mask of bleak hypocrisy keeping you bound in empty allegiance.

The things you love, Jose scorns. And through his scorn, he frees you.

And is it easy, this freedom? Does it taste the way you remembered? Or is there a bitter undertone not recalled from the dickless days of your youth?

Don’t let Jose catch you crying. He was the first to tell you how badly freedom sucks.
