It ain’t easy being young. All those hormones and hard-ons. It jumbles up a body something awful. There, there, rock ‘n’ roll understands. And for the next week we’ll present some of our favorite troubled youth tunes, starting with this bark-along classic from The Tubes at their bedazzled, bugged-out best.
