The Dead Milkmen – Punk Rock Girl
What do Bruce Springsteen, The Fresh Price of Bel Air, Elton John and Boyz II Men all have in common? All of them have written songs about Philadelphia. From cheese steaks to malfunctioning bells, Philly’s allure has inspired artists since the dawn of route 95. Although the aforementioned artists have been canonized in the book of pop, the Dead Milkmen, unfortunately, got high during the induction ceremony. Punk Rock Girl rides a rollercoaster of catchiness while articulating the pangs of youthful love. Meeting the parents, going out for ice cream, first locking eyes at a punk shop turned sex boutique. This gem was played on MTV in 1988 for about the same amount of time as the mad cow disease scare.
