Friday Nuggets - "Pushing Too Hard" The Seeds

We aren't messing around today and are going with one of the most important, most seminal, most completely awesome garage rock classics - "Pushing Too Hard":

The Seeds were from Los Angeles, and led by garage rock legend Sky Saxon who passed away in 2009. "Pushing Too Hard" was released in 1965, and became a worldwide hit in 1966. It turns up on any credible list of the best rock and roll singles of all time.

The song has been covered by many, including Pere Ubu, The Makers, The Bangles, and The Embarrassment.  "Pushing Too Hard" proves that two chords is plenty enough if handled the right way.

Bonus version - this crazy period piece footage from the 60's TV show Mothers In Law. There's not much I can say about this except to accept your gratitude for finding it:
