The Jam — In the City

From 1977 (I think).  Not all punks were snot nosed.  The Jam brought  some style to the scene, but don't let the clothes fool you, they still brought anger and a driving guitars to their songs.  Paul Weller was tough!  Reportedly he beat up Sid Vicious cuz he thought the Sex Pistols copied his songs.  I'm dropping another song in the comments.

The Clash — Complete Control

From 1977.  Of course I needed to include "the only band that matters."  Besides being a cool song with a nice guitar part, I picked this one because of the weird set.  It looks like was recorded in 1970's rich person's idea of a cool basement.  Pretty sure I'm going to throw I'm so Bored with the USA in the comments.

The Damned — New Rose

From 1976(!)  Not sure why these guys weren't any bigger, but this song absolutely rocks.  The Damned were contemporaries of the Sex Pistols and this single came out five weeks before Anarchy in the UK. It's a shame they weren't better known, with their first album soon populating the cutout bins of Mankato record shops.

2017 Game 14: Cleveland at Twins

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one, it's the loneliest number since the number one... 
(Playing the Twins excepted)

One run, another loss.  The Twins, inspired by their hockey cousins across the river, have scored just one run in four of their last seven games, including the last two, resulting in all losses.  Clearly the mantra from the other side is “just score two boys, and we’ll be alright.”  Given Cleveland’s early pitching woes, yesterday was especially frustrating.

Phil Hughes up against Josh Tomlin today at 7:10p.  Even though it’s pretty rainy all day, things look to clear up this evening.  Hopefully Twins bats emerge from the cloud as well.

The Pretenders — The Wait

In honor of Redd Kross playing at the Amsterdam Bar, I'm going to Punk School this week.

We are starting off with The Pretenders, which is the band that got me to stop listening to Foreigner and start listening to The Sex Pistols.  When I first heard this song, it grabbed me by the throat and threw my down on the floor.  I haven't gotten up since.  Sorry about the b&w video, but the version is worth it.
