Biography

Ray Edward "Eddie" Cochran (October 3, 1938 - April 17, 1960) was an American singer, songwriter, and musician. With a charismatic voice that could switch effortlessly between smooth ballads and raucous rockabilly, Cochran epitomized the rebellious '50s rocker. Although killed in a tragic accident at the age of 21, the influence of his brief career, and life, was immeasurable, having inspired many of the greatest artists of the '60s. Cochran's distinctively rough, bass-driven singles (such as "C'mon Everybody", "Somethin' Else", and "Summertime Blues") have granted him the title of "grandfather of punk" by luminaries of the genre.

    Lyrics
    I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
    About a workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar
    Every time I call my baby, and ask to get a date
    My boss says, "No dice son, you gotta work late"
    Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
