The Boogers

Ok, NOW we’re talking. As if their name isn’t fabulous enough, this is the Ramones meets Mother Goose. the_boogersNo seriously…while touring and playing bass with Chicago-based punk bands in the 80s and 90s, Paul Crowe (aka Crusty Booger) actually played bass with Dee Dee Ramone (& the Chinese Dragons) and Marky Ramone (& the Intruders). A PhD in Developmental Psych and 3 kids later, he created The Boogers – a kid-friendly punk band that completely rocks \m/

While the Ramones aren’t every parent’s style, this is completely kid-friendly music. It’s a combo of covers/interpretations of traditional kids’ music (“The Wheels on the Bus”) and original tunes (“This Song’s About Transportation!”). Some songs are clearly tributes to the Ramones (“ABC”), while other songs like “Peanut Butter and Jelly” are more in line with, say, The Dead Milkmen. No matter what, you can’t help but dance when you hear it. The Boogers apparently spend their time playing venues like Children’s museums and birthday parties.  I think they’re the kind of dads you want to have on Careers Day. Amazon.com and CD Baby can barely keep their 2008 “Road to Rock” album in stock.

Check out this video of them playing “Mary” to see what kids think about these guys…
