Cover vs. Original: Remember When Motley Crue Covered “Smokin’ In The Boys Room” by Brownsville Station?

There’s a side to me that really enjoys old-school classic rock mixed in with some blues, and Brownsville Station did a great job of mixing those two genres, especially with their classic “Smoking In The Boys Room”.  This song really personified teenage rebellion and how students sometimes get tired of listening to teachers.  This song personifies living free and breaking the rules if you need to.  In 1985, Motley Crue released this cover from their classic rock album “Theatre Of Pain”.  Did Motley Crue do Brownsville Station justice?  Let us know in the comments below.
