The Tubes - White Punks On Dope download album
Produced by Al Kooper. White Punks On Dope Lyrics. Teenage, had a race for the nighttime Spent my cash on every high I could find Wasted time in every school in . Gettin' loose, I didn't care what the kids say. We're white punks on dope Mom and Dad moved to Hollywood Hang myself when I get enough rope Can't clean up, though I know I should. White punks on dope, white punks on dope White punks on dope, white punks on dope. We're white punks on dope Mom and Dad live in Hollywood Hang myself when I get enough rope I can't clean up, though I know I should. I go crazy cause my folks are so fuckin' rich Have to score when I get that rich white punk itch Sounds real classy, living in a chateau So lonely, all the other kids will never know.
In "White Punks on Dope," the line "hang myself when I get enough rope" later inspired the album title Give 'Em Enough Rope by The Clash. The Tubes hired an arranger to come in and write the arrangements, since Kooper was intent on adding strings, horns, and choirs to it. Their choice was Dominic Frontiere, who also scored the TV series The Outer Limits and Sergio Leone's film Hang 'Em High. More songs from The Tubes. It was the name of The Clash's 2nd album recorded in large part in The Tubes home base, San Francisco. Punk is not a specific sound per se. It's an attitude.
White Punks on Dope", abbreviated as "WPOD", is a 1975 song by San Francisco-based rock group The Tubes from their debut, eponymous album, produced by Al Kooper. The song was written by the band's dual lead guitarists, Bill Spooner and Roger Steen with Michael Evans (later a sales manager at Ingram Entertainment and VP at Sony Pictures). It has been called absurd anthem of wretched excess, ridiculing the rich and famous offspring of Hollywood elite
Other dudes are living in the ghetto. But born in Pacific Heights don't seem much betto. We're white punks on dope. Mom & Dad live in Hollywood. Hang myself when I get enough rope. I can't clean up, though I know I should. I go crazy 'cause my folks are so fucking rich. Have to score when I get that rich white punk itch. Sounds real classy, living in a chateau. So lonely, all the other kids will never know. Hang myself when I get enough rope
