friday flashback - punk rock girls revisited


Now, if you have followed me for a while you know I am a fan of The Dead Milkmen. I have posted about them here, and here, oh and here too. Punk Rock Girl is especially a favorite. Grady loves to move and shake it to that song and I of course indulged him and play it extra loud!! Hubby and I often fight disagree on the bestest song eva. He brings up some good ones; Big Lizard (which I had the t-shirt of BTW), Bitchin' Camaro, Surfin' Cow, but in my mind there is only one. This song has passed the test of time and has remained in my heart and brain for, I am sad to say, decades. Nothing screams "I love the 80's" like this song. And now, for your viewing and listening enjoyment I give you this.


Now go rock your mohawks and black leather and join in on the Friday Flashback fun. This week's theme is music. So pull out the vinyl or cassette tapes and pick your favorite or two. Be sure to add yourself below and of course, leave some comment lovin'!!

I usually mention Punk Rock Girl when I do anniversary posts. When we met, hubby played that song for me all the time and called me his "Punk Rock Girl". It fit. He was in the Army and I was a wear-black-all-the-time theatre major.

You are totally bringing back memories of when I was crushing on a punk rock guy and trying to impress him by listening to the Dead Kennedys day and night...

I used to LOVE the Dead Milkmen!!! I think 87-89 was the peak of my devotion to them. Everyone in my HS was a Deadhead, which kind of sent me the other direction, musically. My favorite has to be Beach Party Vietnam.
"Hey Frankie, aren't you gonna give me your class ring"
"I'm afraid I can't do that Annette"
"Why not"
"cuz I don't have any arms!AAAAAAAH"

Thanks for the memories!
