Original Song: Brownsville Station "Smokin' In The Boys Room" (1974)


“They weren't smokin' in that boys room—just taking a quick dump,” Robert Christgau wrote about Brownsville Station at the end of the '70s, but he was so wrong! As much as any hard rockers in the early, pre-punk '70s, that Ann Arbor band kept alive the stripped-down-dragster greaser ethos of the great '60s garage bands, and this song was their pinnacle (though not their only one). It took Mötley's '80s L.A. hair-sleaze dirtballs to carry true poop to the lavatory. Flush twice—it's a long way to the cafeteria.
