The Top Ten

1 Gary Gilmore's Eyes - Die Toten Hosen (The Adverts) Gary Gilmore's Eyes - Die Toten Hosen (The Adverts)

Die Toten Hosen did a decent cover version of this classic punk anthem by The Adverts (basically a T.V. Smith song who wrote (music and lyrics) all of The Adverts tracks), but is nowhere near as brilliant as the original. "Gary Gilmore's Eyes" is still part of the encore of every T.V. Smith gig, when solo or with his backing group "The Bored Teenagers". - punksnotdead
