Track of the Week: High School by The MC5

Cover of "Back in the Usa"Cover of Back in the UsaThis week's track takes us back to 1970. The MC5 released their second record, Back in the USA. This was also their first studio album, as Kick Out the Jams was a live recording. The song itself is very straight-forward basic rock 'n' roll. A song about high school. The most basic rock 'n' roll you can get. I went to watch Rock 'n' Roll High School at the Plaza Classic Film Festival last week and I was pleasantly surprised to remember how much I liked "High School!"

Video (It sounds a little flat in the video...)


Lyrics
The kids want a little action
The kids want a little fun
The kids all have to get their kicks
Before the evening's done

'Cause they're goin' to
(High school) rah, rah, rah
(High school) sis, boom, bah
(High school) hey, hey, hey
You better let them have their way

They only wanna shake it up, baby
Dance to the rockin' bands
They only want a little excitement
They like to get a little outta hand

'Cause they're goin' to
(High school) rah, rah, rah
(High school) sis, boom, bah
(High school) hey, hey, hey
You better let them have their way

The kids know what the deal is
They're getting farther out everyday
We're gonna be takin' over
You better get out of the way

'Cause we're goin' to
(High school) rah, rah, rah
(High school) sis, boom, bah
(High school) hey, hey, hey
You better get out of the way
