Here's a few from Rodney Bingenheimer. If you're not familiar with him, you might think they suck. If you are familiar with him, you still might think they suck. I can't say that they're all great, but I've always had a soft spot for the guy. The longer Rodney's around, the longer we have a rock n' roll diehard link of continuity. A bit of a wimpy fanboy rock n' roll diehard link of continuity, but a link nevertheless. He goes way back. The GTO's did a song called "Rodney," about him (that featured him), way back in 1969. Blondie backed him on a cover of Ronny & the Daytona's "Little GTO" in the late 70s. Runaways era Lita Ford plays on his "Let's Make the Scene." Thurston Moore and Eric Erlandson (Hole) back him on "I Hate the 90s," which is the great guitar freakout you'd expect, but with Rodney complaining about the 90s over it. It's pretty funny, actually. That said, these are novelty records, really, probably only of interest to that small slice of the pie that know who Rodney Bingenheimer is and are not completely annoyed by him.
