Good Lord, there was an episode of Family Guy almost entirely devoted to this song:
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.
I freakin’ drive my family nuts with this. “Hey, kids, uhm… have you, uh… heard about the word?”
“YES DAD! WE HAVE! DON’T SING THE SONG!!”
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:
