    Song has only become more and more relevant. Too many young folks these days being scewed out of a future by short-sighted "adults."

    I heard 5 versions of this song: Eddie Cochran (original), The Who, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, Rush and Olivia Newton-John. Eddie and Olivia are my favourites !

    "Love to help you, son, but you're too young to vote"... man, grownups are a drag, aren't they, kids? (-:
