Per’s 60 for 60. #33 I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend. A Ramones cover, from 2002! It’s rather common for Per and Gyllene, and even Roxette, to play covers from time to time. It’s not as usual that the songs are recorded and released though. This story is kind of funny: A bunch of Swedish rock bands such as Hellacopters, Wilmer X and Backyard Babies decided to record a tribute album to The Ramones; The Song Ramones the Same. Per heard about this project and wanted in, so he recorded this little ditty and also “Sheena is a Punk Rocker” and “Gimme Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment.” Only “Boyfriend” was included on the actual album. As a side note, “Gimme” includes the exact same guitar solo as “Opportunity Nox” performed by Per. #per60
