It’s easy to forget, what with all our modern inventions–Spotify and whatnot–how hard it once was to soundtrack your actions and image. Like, nowadays, if you’re some kind of tough guy or hoodlum, and you’re riding around in your car about to do some crime, it’s pretty easy to put on some menacing, appropriately scary music. But back in the distant past, when all you had to rely on was whatever was on the radio, you had guys like this, riding around in their jalopy, looking to bust heads and steal hubcabs, whipping each other with chains while “Sh-Boom”–and The Crew Cuts version, not even the one by The Chords–plays, all crackly and tinny, completely at odds with the chaos going down in the alley behind the malt shoppe.
