When I was in high school, when this song came out, we thought it was sooo stupid. And we were right. But it was a huge hit and plumbed some ideas about glam and rock and theater that were oh so courant in 1973. And, of course, it was out of these ideas that punk erupted, in its many forms, shortly thereafter.
And it was this song that bounces back in my head when I’m thinking, Hey Ho Let’s Go from the Ramones.
It is this song that reminds me that I’ve not ever seen Rocky Horror Picture Show.
