Time Warp Wednesday: There’s One In Every Car or The Soundtrack to Repo Man

I have seen the film Repo Man innumerable times—but not perhaps in 20 or more years. It really is a great movie, especially when you are an emerging punk rock 14 year old. I even sported the single dangly cross earring look for a time. So while my taste in films and fashion may have changed (perhaps for the better?), I still dig this soundtrack. What a killer collection of bands and songs: Iggy Pop, Black Flag, The Circle Jerks, Fear, and Suicidal Tendencies. These were really the huge punk bands of the 80s and there they are all on one great little soundtrack (which I will listen to) to a great little film (which I likely will neither watch again nor sport the single dangly cross earring look [for which I bet my wife will be very grateful]).
