Certain Songs #1487: Pavement – “Cut Your Hair”

Album: Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
Year: 1994

Did you see the drummer’s hair?

Holy shit, this song. I mean, holy fucking shit, this song.

First off, it’s always given me flashbacks to Pete Townshend singing in first person character “Why should I care / If I have to cut my hair” but that’s on me, as Pavement’s “Cut Your Hair” isn’t anything at all like The Who’s “Cut My Hair,” a song which instantly pivots to Jimmy’s issues fitting in with his peers and his parents.
