Musical Interlude Tuesday : I Wanna Be Sedated

I'm not the only one who, whenever I hear this, flashes back to that scene in My So-Called Life where Jordan Catalano has to sing it on stage after the original lead singer bails, and he turns out to be perfect... right? right?
In any case, I have loved this Ramones song for longer than I can remember, and the thing is -- it never gets old. It's sublimely messy and utterly sing-able; a kind of anthem for bored youth with a joy that belies the jaded lyrics.
