New: Dwight Smith covers Ramones “Rockaway Beach”

ramones, rockaway beach, dwight smithFor anyone tuned in to post-Hurricane Sandy coverage, there was plenty of talk about Rockaway Beach. For people like me, every time the Queens neighborhood was mentioned immediately the Ramones classic track got stuck in my head. Apparently the same thing happened to Dwight Smith who concocted a plan to record a cover of the Ramones track for Sandy relief efforts. His unique finger-picking take on the song is a thing of beauty, giving the punk classic a definitely unpunk makeover.
