Wreckless Eric 'Whole Wide World'

This single, also released in 1977 like yesterday's Boredom, is regularly voted as one of the best punk singles of all time (by Mojo), and one of the top 40 singles of the 'alternative era 1975-2000', and so on. In truth it's just a great record, regardless of time, period or era. Punk opened the floodgates for people with half an idea and a couple of chords, gave them the means to do it, and a sound/style, but this would still be great if it had been recorded in 1961, 1987 or 2008.
