  • David from Youngstown, OhIt's sad this is the lone song on this website from the New York Dolls, among the very, very best glam rock/pre-punk bands in music history. This is a great song off their brilliant debut album, which also includes Personality Crisis, Pills, Trash and Jet Boy. Todd Rundgren produced the album.
  • Sheeberson from Wrightsville Beach, Nchaha, ohhhhhh the heroin bit thing is hilarious, because a friend of mine is making a mixtape of good rockin love songs for this girl he likes for valentines day, and it would be HILARIOUS if she was like "you wanna shoot up heroin in my room?" oh lordie...
