From the album Built for Speed,
Rock This Town was a
#4 hit for The Stray Cats in 1982.
Although some of the parodies on "Spoofernatural" were written years earlier, this was the first song specifically written for the "Spoofernatural" project, in January 2000. It's about the Tower of Babel, of course.
We played the original Stray Cats version in a band I was in the summer between my freshman and sophomore year in college. In my short-lived career as an aspiring bass player, I learned about three notable bass lines -- this one and the one in "White Wedding" by Billy Idol, and the one in "Talking in Your Sleep" by the Romantics.
