Survival of the Fittest

The Weirdos : We Got the Neutron Bomb

In March of 1978 The Weirdos, a punk band made up of Los Angeles art schoolers, released the classic single "We Got the Neutron Bomb" on the famed Dangerhouse label. The band was discovered by Peter Case, then of The Nerves, and were thought revolutionary because they had no drummer and would glue anything from gardening equipment to kitchen gadgets on three piece leisure suits. They would share the stage with everyone from The Germs to X during the first wave of LA punk.

Regretfully, the lyrics to "Neutron Bomb" sound like something tRump just tweeted:

United Nations and NATO won't do 
 It's just the red, white and blue 
 We got the neutron bomb.
