San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)




Saw them play at the Matt Gonzalez benefit at Slim's SF in 2005(I think) and they didn't play it, despite me and my equally drunk friend begging for it. Eventually Fat Mike shrugged and said "I don't care". My buddy and me high-fived and enjoyed the show...

Delta Dawn! Wish we could get studio version so I can listen all the way through.

So many good ones. Stumbled upon them when I was 13 and their cover of Natural Woman was in the movie Boat Trip. ahaha

Edit: I think that was Stand by Your Man

Favorite track? "Only the Good Die Young."

When I first heard it on Punk-O-Rama Volume 2, I was like, 13 and had no idea who Me First was--or who was in the band. I eventually figured out who was involved in the band and actually wound up listening to Lagwagon because of that. But yeah. That song is super catchy, and while I'm sure Fat Mike is disgusted by Billy Joel's entire discography...This weirdly feels like one of the few covers the Gimmes do where the lyrics don't come off as ironic.

Their cover of Jolene from Love Their Country reminds me so much of my dad.
I give it to my mom though for taking me to see them in '02. I love my parents.
