Don't know if I've ever heard it before. It's ok.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I was learning to play the bass when the song came out and it was fun to play along with (and, indeed, embellish). I started out by playing along with Ramones records, but on those the bass just pretty much plays the root note of the chord all the time.

This song, along with Substitute, made me think about what else basslines can do to support chord progressions and melodies, but also how they can be interesting and enjoyable in their own right.

So it was instructive, and a catchy number at that.

"It stinks" is way way too complimentary.
