Twelve Days of Christmas

Degenerate

This week’s Songspiel begins with Kung Fu Jimmy’s home screening of the 90’s movie “Airheads” starring Brendan Fraiser, Steve Buscemi. The movie, a lighthearted comedy about the desperate measures a rock band, The Loan Rangers, reach to get their song played on the radio, is not the focus of the podcast. Instead, the song in the movie “Degenerate”, a song about the perils of mispent youth and drug use, is the focus. And more specifically about the legendary punk band Regan Youth, the originators of the song “Degenerated”, and the drugs and youthful shennanigans that eventually led to the death of lead singer and founding member Dave Insurgent.
