HOW PUNK WAS THE 90s? This Punk


As someone whose taste has always leaned toward Punk (The Dead Kennedys, Fear, The Clash, Television, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, The Buzzcocks, etc.) I have to say that this 90s commercial for a punk rock compilation album in which HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS appears, leads me to believe someone should be shot in the face…a lot.

Look, I get it. Obviously this was conceived by some old dude in a bow-tie who got all mixed up between punk, new wave and pop, but wasn’t there anyone at the company that said, “You know, I don’t think Karma Chameleon is a punk song”?

No one?

Next time dude, call me when you want to sell a punk compilation. My mix tapes alone could fuel a set of four CDs that you can charge $49.99 for.
