The old adage ''a picture is worth 1,000 words'' could not be truer than it is in the case of this amazing single. Brought back from the '70s, a very seldom used vinyl record hologram perfectly illustrates how in the music business, to get an edge, you ''Gotta Be Cool.'' And that's exactly what this record, and this song are.
The cover of Lou Reed's classic ''Rock N' Roll'' jamming on the B-side is certainly going to strike a chord with a lot of people, and the rainbow foil-stamped '70s style picture sleeve ain't too shabby either.
Hailed by many as a younger generation's answer to THE CLASH, THE RATCHETS hold a special place in the hearts and playlists of many people all over the world.
This single exemplifies the primal energetic punk rock n' roll that has been flowing through the veins of these New Jersey staples for almost two decades, and how that passion is firing on all cylinders today.
Put on your Ray-Bans, and pick up one of these ridiculously cool limited edition hologram records today, because you ''Gotta Be Cool'' too!
