My description of "96 Tears" as weak bully-type punk is not altogether fair: I think Question Mark is being more nuanced in his lyrics than either the Syndicate Of Sound or the Seeds are; he's acknowledging and owning his own weakness, and letting on that he knows he's enmeshed in a psychological dynamic that's beyond him. Whereas "Pushin' Too Hard" and "Little Girl" are just weak boys acting tough — which isn't necessarily a bad thing for a song to do, for capturing this and making it immortal, and these songs are rightly classics. They're just dishonest fucked-up classics that still make me angry and still make my great songs list, and that paint a picture of my own emotions that I still don't like to see.
