Yeah, the day's almost over, but it's still 4/20 somewhere. A most ridiculous holiday if there ever was one. Which makes it perfect for those who celebrate it, because to them everyday is 4/20. What? Do you think people who really smoke weed only smoke weed once a year? You is or you ain't. The Donnas were. I know. My nephew smoked out with a couple of them after a show once. It was years ago and it still makes me immensely proud. Why? Because if I was his age, I would have done the exact same thing. A way early start on the bucket list. Smoke out with the Donnas. Check. Hell yeah.
The Donnas should have been huge. They really didn't fuck around, just simple catchy rock 'n' roll songs about partying, sneaking out, making out, rocking out, and smoking out. I ask you, what is there not to like? Particularly if you're around the same age and have the same delinquent habits. Surely if we can all praise the Ramones singing about sniffing glue, or raise our fists because Joan Jett loves rock 'n' roll, there must be a place for the Donnas.
Maybe the Donnas were too basic. Maybe there wasn't enough to dissect, or maybe they were too much like their audience. Who knows. I'll tell you one thing. Parking lot chick don't care. She smokes weed any day she wants.
