Tag Archives: Cheetah Chrome Still Wanna Die

CHEETAH CHROME RELEASED AN UNSUNG CLASSIC EP IN 1979

This was recorded shortly after The Dead Boys broke up and certainly shares the same energy of Cheetah’s previous work. There’s a slow, cynical and sinister sound to the B-Side “Take Me Home, whereas the A-Side “Still Wanna Die” is all about fast-paced nihilism and self-destruction. Everybody knows about Dead Boys, but this 7 inch has too often been passed over for the more popular stuff. Give these tracks a listen and lets hope that they are remembered as an important part of 1970s Ohio punk rock history.

Luckily Cheetah didn’t end up a rock and roll casualty and still records music to this day. Look for more on him in the near future from Rust Belt Hammer.
