Have always been a repeat listener of THE DONNAS’ 1997 debut LP, a high school ramalama Ramones-athon that never gets old to these ears. I saw them live around this time, just as they were graduating from simple riffs (and from high school) and into a dumb cars/boys/rockin’ vibe a la The Runaways. They were great.

This song, “Lana & Steve”, features one of the all-time great rhyming couplets: “She was from San Mateo/Her Dad was in the CIA-o”.

Here’s something I wrote about the album back in 2004.
