The Shangri-Las perform "Out in the Streets" (1965)

Bad girl group The Shangri-Las, best known for "Leader of the Pack," perform the far superior tune "Out in the Streets" on a 1965 episode of Shindig! For all you ever wanted to know about these talented young ladies, look no further than right here. (via Ben Gibbard)


    1. I bought a cheap best of CD for the Shangri-Las back in the 80s when I was an angry teen (proper angry teens in the 80s listened to 60s music. Fact.) and played it to death. Still do. The music bounces around from proto-RiotGrrl, through aching ballads to breathless pop – mwah!

  1. shit me – haven’t heard this since my flatmate’s tape recorder ate it. Loved this one too – covered by Superchunk back in the day, but the original burns it to the ground.
