Punk Rock Girl by the Dead Milkmen

The year was 1987 and I heard my first Dead Milkmen song. Of course the song was Bitchin' Camaro. I was hooked. In 1988 The Dead Milkmen released an album called Beelzebubba. Which I imediately purchased.The album contains such classic songs as "Born to Love Volcanoes, Life is Shit and The Guitar Song" (what's that sound coming out of the hole in the wood, it's a guitar). Beelzebubba was the closest the Milkmen came to a breakthrough album. They were that close but never quite went over the top.

Today's submission for your listening pleasure is:

Punk Rock Girl by The Dead Milkmen

With Punk Rock Girl the Dead Milkmen managed to create the near perfect single. It's sprightly and catchy and references everything from the Beach Boys to Mojo Nixon.

And of course you can Buy it here.

Unfortunately bassist Dave Blood passed away in March of this year. Damn.
