Then I wondered if there was any music about 222s.
Well, lo and behold! Little did I know that there was once a Canadian punk rock band called the 222's! And guess what? I think I like them! This song for sure! Here they are singing Fun, Fun, Fun from 1979!
Fun, Fun, Fun / 222's
I find it interesting that I am just discovering them now... ? Way back in '79 I was just developing a taste for New Wave music but Punk was a bit too much for me. I had moved to a city the year before after living all my life in a very small backwoods town. When I first saw punkers in the flesh I was both fascinated and horrified. Why would anyone want to look that way? The wild hair was one thing but the piercings!! Back then, safety pins were the piercing of choice. Yikes!
Yes, I was a shallow, sheltered creature. Still am, I'm afraid. But I wonder...
Would I become a sudden fan of Punk Rock if Richard Armitage were to play a Punker ... like one of The Sex Pistols?
or Perhaps another character named John?
Here is a punk band I've always liked. I guess I should take their advice!
I Wanna Be Sedated / The Ramones
Better give them some of those 222's!
