Some people’s idolize great men like Martin Luther King or Abraham Lincoln. Me? I’ve always been partial to David Lee Roth. Unfortunately he’s become a raging fool over the past few years but — at one time in the dark and distant past — the man was a philosopher-King. Henceforth, the Atomic Punk:

“I am a victim of the science age
A child of the storm. Whoa, yes
I can’t remember when I was your age
For me! It says no more, no more
Nobody rules these streets at night but me
The Atomic Punk
Oh, yeah!”

Van Halen from Van Halen I (1977).
