This is probably one of the best versions I have heard of a Ramones song ever. Hanoi Rocks had it all, and if it wasn’t for a certain ding bat driving drunk in LA around 1984, Razzle and the boys would be selling out arenas all over the world. Instead, the Hanoi flame burnt out way too early.
Hanoi Rocks were the real deal my friends. The whole LA glam scene tore the aesthetics of the band apart like vultures after Hanoi broke up, and made a mockery out of the essence of these true, original glam rock kings (see back of Theatre Of Pain album cover for reference) Mike, Nasty, Razzle, Samm, Andy…..we still luv ya’.
