Blitzkrieg Bop:Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros

Artist: Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros

Album: Unreleased

Appears On (Mixes): Aila's Mp3 Of The Week

Song Notes: Blitzkrieg Bop, as I'm sure everyone reading this knows, is the great Ramones song. One of the simplest songs ever made, but a great one. This version is from a bootleg of a Joe Strummer show about a year before he died. I thought it was kind of interesting to hear a different punk legend (with The Clash, of course) do a Ramones song. Of course it doesn't require any great talent to work this one - I've played this song for a crowd at least a couple times, playing keyboards (?! totally out of place for the Ramones, eh?), with person who looked a lot like farmalloc on vocals... :) - Ailas
