Soft Boys: I Wanna Destroy (with a bonus)

Here is a song I can barely resist singing along to as loud as I can. It just makes me feel better when I hear it.

Soft Boys "I Wanna Destroy You"

The lyrics are so harsh but it's catchy like anything. I was never into Robyn Hitchcock, but this is a winner. It sounds like he was channeling Iggy Pop while writing it.

It's been covered a number of times. One of them is how I first discovered the song - the Circle Jerks cover.

This is a real thing - the Circle Jerks with Debbie Gibson. Debbie Gibson is just about the least likely person to save rock and roll. But she sure makes an effort here, and it's just a kick ass cover.
