The Georgia Satellites, "Battleship Chains" (1986)
While Dan Baird was singing lead for the Georgia Satellites (most famous for "Keep Your Hands to Yourself") and writing most of the songs, he brought the band a catchy tune written by Terry Anderson for Baird's previous band, the Woodpeckers (a.k.a. the Fabulous Knobs). "Battleship Chains" reached Number 76 on the U.S. charts (Number 44 in the U.K.) and was memorably covered by Warren Zevon and R.E.M. on the Hindu Love Gods album. But when the Satellites did it, lead vocals were handled by the band's hirsute lead guitarist Rick Richards.
