I recall distinctly thinking, as a young punk, how great the Ramones' version of this song was. Upon finding out it was a cover I thought it would be amusing to hear the tame original to further appreciate the punkification of the song (shut up, that's a word). I can still feel my jaw dropping as I realized there were punks before the punks.
And I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time.

Oh? Was there some news? Of an ornithological nature?

Wow. That is so awesome to watch, if for no other reason than to see how brazen the lipsynching was. That's pretty awesome.
Edit: I had no idea that Silverchair had done a cover of the song. Here it is:

Someday your kids may have to decide what level of quality nursing home care you should receive.
I would advise you to not make their decision too easy.
