Not a Novelty Track

Looking back on the gay marriage debate, I feel I should post the incredible song Androgynous by Minneapolis' favorite native sons The Replacements which, though not about same-sex marriage, takes on traditional gender roles:





The song initially comes across as a novelty song, but one quickly realizes that it is a plea for tolerance:

Mirror image, see no damage, see no evil at all.
Kewpie dolls and urinal stalls will be laughed at the way you're laughed at now.


You tell them, Mr Westerberg! Joan Jett recorded a cover version of Androgynous, which is a staple of her live shows:





{ZRM} I am pleased to note that I have seen both Teh 'Mats and Joan Jett live in concert.{/ZRM} Hell, I even ran a 10k in Central Park so I could see Joan play a "Run Hit Wonder" event, which was kicked off by a concert featuring The Donnas.

the official video for Jett's cover also features a cameo from John Doe.

I missed JJ at Summerfest last year; The Hold Steady was a better bet.

I don't see BBBB in the future. He'll be off with the gaymarriage loveslave crowd, I guess. Tuesday night is all-you-can-eat at The Friendly Rooster.

The Bob Stinson Replacements were not a good live bet, depending on whether or not you went to shows to see the crashes.

I love JJ! That is a great song and she does it justice. The place where she filmed that is in Hell-A on a movie set-type lot and I get notices for all their shows, since I signed up for them. They are free and its a very small venue..sort of like a small bar type of place. Great acoustics too. Must of missed that email damn or it was quite awhile ago.

What a great cover by Joan Jett. I've never heard that before.
