I couldn't hold back any longer. Vic Reeves remembers punk rock.

Monterey by The Animals came up on random

The people came and listened
Some of them came and played
Others gave flowers away
Yes they did yeah!
Down in Monterey
Down in Monterey

Young gods smiled upon the crowd
Their music being born of love
Children danced night and day
Religion was being born
Down in Monterey

The Byrds and the Airplane
Did fly
Oh, Ravi Shankar's
Music made me cry

The Who exploded
Into fired light (yeah)
Hugh Masekelas music
Was black as night

The Grateful Dead
Blew everybody's mind
Jimi Hendrix, baby
Believe me
Set the world on fire, yeah!

His majesty
Prince Jones* smiled as he
Moved among the crowd
Ten thousand electric guitars
Were groovin' real loud, yeah

If you wanna find the truth in life
Don't pass music by
And you know
I would not lie
No, I would not lie
No, I would not lie
Down in Monterey

Hu! huh-huh!

Alright!

Three days of understanding
Of moving with one another
Even the cops grooved with us
Do you believe me?
Yeah!

Down in Monterey
Down in Monterey, yeah
Down in Monterey
Down in Monterey, yeah


*according to the interwebs 'Prince Jones' was Brian Jones from the Stones who MC.

@hingehead,
It may have had something to do with this.

KISS tried to kill me - The Black Spiders




Killing in Atlanta
Springfield P.A
All across the highways
And down to 'Frisco bay
Back in New York City
Getting followed too
What's that in the mirror?
They're coming after you

All this time, in disguise
Was it just the mist? Oh no
Get me out, of this dream, yeah. Hey

Kiss tried to kill me
It was Gene not Paul
Kiss tried to kill me
It wasn't Ace's fault

Killing time in Austin
Down Memphis way
San Diego slays me
I gotta get away
Detroit rock city (city)
Up in Gainesville too
Phoenix Arizona
He's coming after you

All this time, in disguise
Was it Peter Chris? Oh no
Get me out, of this dream. Yeah. Yeah

Kiss tried to kill me
It was Gene not Paul
Kiss tried to kill me
It wasn't Ace's fault

Kiss tried to kill me
It was Gene not Paul
Kiss tried to kill me
It wasn't Ace's fault

Oh no

Kiss tried to kill me
Or was it just a dream
Kiss tried to kill me
Taking one for the team

Killing time in London
But it's way past twelve
Kissing time in dreamland
Get me outta this hell

Kiss tried to kill me
It was Gene not Paul
Kiss tried to kill me
It wasn't Ace's fault

Kiss tried to kill me
It was Gene not Paul
Kiss tried to kill me
It wasn't Ace's fault

Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Creeque Alley - Mommas and Papas

John and Mitchy were gettin' kind of itchy
Just to leave the folk music behind
Zal and Denny workin' for a penny
Tryin' to get a fish on the line
In a coffee house Sebastian sat
And after every number they'd pass the hat
McGuinn and McGuire just a-gettin' higher
In L.A., you know where that's at
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

Zally said "Denny, you know there aren't many"
"Who can sing a song the way that you do, let's go south"
Denny said "Zally, golly, don't you think that I wish"
"I could play guitar like you"
Zal, Denny and Sebastian sat (at the Night Owl)
And after every number they'd pass the hat
McGuinn and McGuire still a-gettin higher
In L.A., you know where that's at
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

When Cass was a sophomore, planned to go to Swarthmore
But she changed her mind one day
Standin' on the turnpike, thumb out to hitchhike
"Take me to New York right away"
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps
Called John and Zal and that was the Mugwumps
McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher
But that's what they were aimin' at
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps
Don't you work as hard as you play
Make up, break up, everything is shake up
Guess it had to be that way
Sebastian and Zal formed the Spoonful
Michelle, John, and Denny gettin' very tuneful
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catchin' fire
In L.A., you know where that's at
And everybody's gettin' fat except Mama Cass
Di-di-di-dit dit dit di-di-di-dit, who-o-oa

------ flute ------
Broke, busted, disgusted, agents can't be trusted
And Mitchy wants to go to the sea
Cass can't make it, she says we'll have to fake it
We knew she'd come eventually
Greasin' on American Express cards
It's low rent, but keeping out the heat's hard
Duffy's good vibrations and our imaginations
Can't go on indefinitely
And California dreamin' is becomin' a reality

The Fauves were asked to write a song for a movie called 'Bigger Than Tina' about a talentless no hoper who dreamed of being more popular that Tina Arena (it's an Oz thing)
