The Ramones released their debut album 43 years ago today. Blitzkrieg Bop is the most covered song on that album, so today we are looking for two Shadow artists who have covered Blitzkreig Bop.
Shadow artist #1 was a British group together from 1988-2007 who put out some catchy singles in the 90’s. They were founded by two members of the Housemartin’s. Their name would make you think of a charming, warmer part of the US.
Shadow artist #2 was a legend with a legendary UK 1st wave punk band. He was the rhythm guitarist, lyricist, co-lead vocalist and co-founder of that band. After that group split in 1986 he did solo work and eventually put a backing band together. He died suddenly from undiagnosed heart disease on 2002.
The 5 O’Clock Shadow is presented by Coney Island Brewing Company.
