the most visceral, snarling, nasty, violent, primal, scary, soul-shredding shriek in the history of pop music is not Johnny Rotten on Anarchy in the UK, or Jello Biafra on Holiday in Cambodia, or anything Henry Rollins did with Black Flag, or Iggy with the Stooges, or John Lennon on Plastic Ono Band... it's Ross Bagdasarian on the Chipmunk Song: "A-l-l-l-l-l-VINNNNN!!!!" What makes a man hate rodents? There was more going on here than a cutesy Christmas novelty song.
