The Story of Johnny Rotten and Barney the Dinosaur (Episode 137)
It was 1994. My band had just started some intense sessions for our debut release. At the end of one long day of recording, our bass player had to leave for a family commitment.
But we still needed to record the drum track on a song he sang — a parody called “Barney Rotten.” (Imagine Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols singing the Barney the Dinosaur kids show theme song. It’s hilarious.)
I remember Jim saying, “I should have left already, but if you guys want, I’ll do one take. But that’s all I have time for, and we have to do it now!”
So we slammed into a quick, punked-out version of “Barney Rotten.”
