I belong to the _____ generation

214. Richard Hell and the Voidoids - "Blank Generation" (Sire, 1977)

There's Richard Hell's swagger, and there's the killer riff, and there's the generational angst, but let's be serious. The reason this is here is because the way he says "blank" during the first line of the chorus and then leaves a blank space in the second line is one of the better gags in rock and roll history. Makes me smile everytime.
