"That weirdness spoke to underground artists across a range of genres, however, including the garage-punk band The Cramps. They brought a new legion of fans of Adkins’s music when they covered "She Said," in 1983. The band didn’t mind that he sang about random shit while strumming an old, out-of-tune guitar and kicking a beat-up drum. They liked that he played entirely without compromise."
