Yeah, in me ol' high school days, the Dead Boys were one of my fave bands.
I highly recommend their live album _Night of the Living Dead Boys_, one
of the best live punk albums I have heard. Stiv Bators was always totally
over the top, especially live. Dunno why "Sonic Reducer" is so heavily
covered though... just a good song, maybe? Very influential it seems...
