Lucky Sevens: A KEXP 1977 Video Roundup

777

The music world struck it rich in 1977. It was ground zero for punk, with debut albums from the Sex Pistols, The Damned, and Dead Boys, to name a few. And not just one, but two albums each from David Bowie and The Ramones. The year was so notable, The Clash wrote a song about it, with lyrics like “No Elvis, Beatles, or The Rolling Stones / In 1977.” Today, on lucky July 7, 2017 (get it??), we celebrate the 40th anniversary of a few of these landmark releases, both on The Morning Show with John Richards from 6:00 to 10:00 AM PT, and here on the KEXP Blog. Jackpot!
