  1. Whenever I heard that intro to You Give Love A Bad Name I would practically rip the knob off the radio trying to change the channel…
    I saw the Turtles around 86 or 87 at a ball park and they announced “We don’t play this crap” and started that song but then stopped and said…”we play this crap” and started in on their music .
