The Ram Ones tribute album WE'RE A HAPPY FAMILY is not particularly necessary but generally adequate, with one glaring exception which bugs me every time I hear it: In The Offspring's version of "I Wanna Be Sedated", Dexter sings the key line as "twenty twenty twenty-four hours ago" instead of "hours to go."
How does a self-respecting punk rock icon (who's not just a snot-nosed young whippersnapper, mind you) bollocks up a key lyric and blow out the meaning to what's possibly the band's best known song? Was it on purpose? Or did he just not know the right line, and nobody felt like correcting him? And why does it bug me so much?
(Maybe he was reading this version of the lyrics online - to that classic "I Wann Abe Sdeated" - oy vey...)
