Adam Ant & His Effect On People

I have been a fan of Adam Ant and Adam & The Ants since I first heard the music back in the early 80’s. Every album I could find I would listen to and loved them all.

When I had a very early boom box/ghetto blaster back around 1981, I was walking through my hometown’s downtown around the bus stops and Dog Eat Dog by Adam & The Ants came on. I loved the song and turned it up, this older (older than I was at the time, probably mid 30’s), black guy got really offended by the song, not the volume the song was playing, just the song. He told me to stop playing that jungle music and play something good, to which I just laughed at him and kept walking.

I’m glad that my wife is also a fan since she was younger and knows his songs, although a lot of her friends could never see the attraction of his music then or now.

Here is the offending video for you
