The Vibrators – Judy Says

Louder Than War : ‘The Vibrators glam tinged take on punk has often been overlooked but they released some fine singles and even had a few brushes with the lower end of charts with songs like the punchy and vibrant Ramones flavoured Judy Says.

Arguably they also released the first punk single beating the Damned’s New Rose to the punch by a few weeks with baby baby in early Nov 1976 but that all depends on what is defined by punk because it seems that there were many ‘punk’ singles before New Rose from the likes of the Vibrators, the Ramones and the Saints but I suppose you have to draw the line somewhere.’
