Eric & the Funnettes – Whatever Happened to Punk Rock?

Beloit, WI Dec. 2011

Whatever happened to punk rock?
It got so loud that it turned soft
We’re out here singing our folk stuff
Now that saying “fuck you” really don’t shock

I remember The Ramones, Johnny did sorta shred
But the Patti Smith Group sounds more like a classic rock band
The Buzzcocks were poppy and they played pretty fast
But I prefer to do my rocking to Sandanista by The Claaaaaaaash


Jimmy and Johnny were two friends of mine
But whatever happened to “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?”
“Place Your Hand Upon My Shoulder” “Let Your Own Light Shine”
We will travel ’round this whole world drinking only “Pink Wine”
