What Even Happened To Punk Music?

Posted by - 04:56 PM on 05/16/12
Okay, at the risk of this not being news ... it's making the rounds on the Internet, so we have to share. Head to the replies to check out an old TV advertisement from the '90s for a compilation CD (or cassette!!!) simply titled PUNK. It features, of course, bands like Men At Work, INXS, Huey Lewis and The News, The Knack, Romantics, and Toni Basil ... of course. This is a must-watch.

The hosts rival those of ICP's infomercials.

Dude dressed in 70's Ramones-style outfit with 80's hair metal hair and speaking like a 90's acid surfer. Wut.

Also, for anybody interested in, the price of that cd (adjusted for inflation) is $42.00.

I think the best part is realizing that Toni Basil looks like Whitney Cummings.
