Versions

"Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" was written about the adolescents of Forest Hills, Queens, who constantly sought cheap thrills to cure their boredom. The Ramones later recorded the similarly themed song "Carbona Not Glue" for their second album, Leave Home. Dee Dee joked that after writing songs like "I Don't Wanna Go Down to the Basement", "I Don't Wanna Be Learned/I Don't Wanna Be Tamed", "I Don't Care", and "I Don't Wanna Walk Around with You", "We didn't write a positive song until 'Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue.'"[4] The song was also the inspiration for the name of influential British punk zine, Sniffin' Glue. The song was covered by Swedish punk rock band Ebba Grön. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
