@WoodsOfNH (now Maine): It was originally by the sixties soul group the Flirtations. The Cobras rarely delved into originals. "Hot Dog (Watch Me Eat)" is a rare and great exception.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm
tim from washington:

Aw, man. This is sad and heavy. As a Michigan dude I can testify that the Cobras and Rachel Nagy were Pure Michigan. Rough on the edges, self-defeating yet badder ass then everyone else.

I'm glad I got to see the Cobras a bunch of times. Fortunately, I didn't catch any bad nights. The Cobras were also the last band I've seen live that scared me - hahaha. It was the first time I saw them on NYE 2000. Each band member was fully loaded on a different substance except for the sober drummer and there were some heavy bad vibes coming off the stage. I remember thinking "Whoa, I better step back a little bit in case shit gets off the hook - haha.

Also, I'll be forever grateful to the Cobras for covering the Equals 'Green Light'. That really opened a door for me. Thanks for the tribute, efd.

tim, long have I sought out likely situations in the subway to possibly grant me my superpowers and hero identity as Disconnect! My power would be just enough telekinesis to slap smartphones out of people's hands. But my strength would grow underground, on public stairways, and when music plays!

How’d they get a cat in a space suit? And all that litter gravel floating around the space capsule?

This whole thing sounds like a fabrication.

I just found a story about the cat - she didn't have a great time. The French selected 14 stray cats, Felicette was a calm cat that didn't get fat during "space cat training," they had electrodes implanted into their brain, the space flight was only about 15 mins long, and they euthanized her about 2 months afterwards.
