100 Records That Shook the World, #30

New Rose

The Damned

Some people make the mistake of saying that this single was the first punk single. To be accurate, it was the first single by a British punk band. Whatever. It's just damn good.

Produced by Nick Lowe and released on October 22, 1976, it sent shockwaves through the stale music industry, soon to be picked up by the Pistols and the Clash and turned into a music revolution.

No more need be said except - enjoy.
