Tom Waits Covers: The Ramones Cover I Don’t Wanna Grow Up

by Brendan Strong

Legends of the sub 3 minute song, the Ramones take on this 2 and a half minute anthem to youth. It’s raucus, ridiculous, and totally rational when you think about it. This is definitely the closest of covers  to the original (in terms of sounding like the original song), but it is done so by turning it up to 11, to borrow a phrase.
