Chuck started it all and the Beatles covered it nicely.Listen to sample
Talkin' 'bout perceptions. So easy to be a musician. Ask anyone...
Why is it that whenever a song is sung in First Person, and it APPEARS it is the opinion of the singer or writer, there is a lot of controversy? This one and 'Short People' by Randy Newman got a lot of flack for its content. Both are about prejudice as seen from the bigot's view.
He says it direct, "Forgit all that macho s*** and learn how to play guitar". He could not have written a more basic rock 'n' roll song than this one. Mellencamp even injects a bit of the 'ole garage band into the piece. I never git tired of listening to this one. Lotsa fun.Listen to sample
Petty does a nice live cover of this classic song.Listen to sample
Probably the reason the Dead let their fans video tape and tape record their music/shows is that no one would have remembered them unless they were archived somehow. Ah, to have been there...or was I?
A funny song from THE Rock Satirists whose stage show was intense, sexy, sensual (especially with Re Styles) and with an acrid taste to it. This song from their live album, "What Do You Want From Live" gores all the punks who were basically low-lifes that burned out quickly (i.e., no talent and lots of personal problems). Skewered and served up with relish.

Lotsa of fun (like rock and roll), sounds dirty (like rock 'n' roll), makes fun of and is rock 'n' roll.Listen to sample
Always expect Ray Davies to serve up something different when commenting on any subject. Not back beat here, just a good solid song.Listen to sample
