'32 Pennies' -- Uh, Oh!

I've got Warrant's “32 Pennies” stuck in my head.


I was in the car with the Glam husband last night and we were listening to Hair Nation on the satellite as per usual. Well, “32 Pennies” came on and I wasn't paying much attention...


“This is the worst song ever,” says the Glam husband.


My reply was “Huh? Oh, '32 Pennies.'”


From that moment on I've had the damn chorus “Ooo ooo!” going through my head.


Walking around Lowes, “Ooo ooo!” to taking a shower “Ooo ooo!” to cleaning “Ooo ooo!”


I finally had to sit down and just listen to the song a few times to get over it. I disagree with the Glam husband. I certainly don't think “32 Pennies” is the worst song ever. Of course, I'm pretty sure he meant “'32 Pennies' is Warrant's worst song.” And, maybe it is. After all, it's no “Uncle Tom's Cabin.”


Have a Happy Fourth of July, dear readers. “Ooo ooo!”

Warrant's worst song is either April 2031 or Andy Warhol Was Right. 32 Pennies is a masterpiece compared to those songs.

Never been a favorite of mine by a stretch, but it was ALWAYS a staple in Warrant and Jani solo shows. Hmmmm maybe its cuz I never had 32 pennies OR a Ragu jar. :)

I've always loved that song. Funny, cause I have been listening to that CD cause of M3 and also have had that oooo oooo tune in my head. Jani played it last yr at M3 and it rocked.

As annoying as it is, you gotta hand it to Lane. He knew (knows?) how to write a memorable song that's always a little different.

Sure he could write a definitive smash hit power ballad ("Heaven"), but he could also write stuff that was a little unexpected, for example this song and say, "Down Boys" among others.

Some harsh comments here... I was never a huge Warrant fan (except for Uncle Tom's Cabin - that song was awesome), but I think '32 Pennies' is a fun, harmless summertime kinda song.

And that "Ooo-ooo" bit does get stuck in your head!

Figures you'd like that song, Gator, especially the video, since it was filmed in your environment! It is a good one, too, bro, for sure! Rock On!
