Noise to Note! #96

Noise to Note!

Punk music is pretty diverse and ranges from a few guys banging on instruments to real musicians who can sometimes branch off and play other genres.

The Vandals can be put into the category of real musicians.

So here is their stab at country rock but keeping the witty lyrics that The Vandals are known for. This song was also featured in the classic surf video – Surf Into Summer from Billabong.

I love this verse…

Abandoned by the city at the age of ten

He has a chip on his shoulder the size of Gentle Ben.

Gentle Ben was a 1970s movie about a pet bear by the way.

So here is The Vandals – Gator Hide.
