Dead Boys “Young Loud and Snotty”

This is one of those records that I’ll always keep, I have such a good feeling about it. It came out in 1977, and it defined punk rock, for me, somewhat, anyway. On the front cover they are trying to be urban and scary, and they are, pretty much, but then on the back cover it’s more of a joke, and a zombie thing I guess. They’re all standing in a bathtub. The songs are all pretty raunchy, and funny, and catchy, and memorable.

Listing to it now, I’m surprised how straight ahead rock and roll it is, and melodic, and poppy at times, and slow at times. I was a little afraid of pop music around this time, but now I’m hearing how the pop stuff is the best stuff on the album. Though I really value a song as ridiculous as “I Need Lunch,” my favorite song now is “All This And More,” which is kind of the “Dead Boys Theme” and my all time favorite of their songs.
