Announcing The Ratchets’ “Gotta Be Cool” Hologram 7″!

With the recent announcement of THE RATCHETS’ ESSENTIALS box set and new LP First Light, it only makes sense to add one final very special piece to the puzzle. We are so excited and proud to unveil the “Gotta Be Cool” hologram 7″, available on November 23rd (Black Friday).
The old adage of “a picture is worth 1000 words” could not be truer than it is in the case of this amazing single. Revived from the 70’s, a very seldom used vinyl record HOLOGRAM perfectly illustrates how in the music business, to get an edge, you GOTTA BE COOL. That’s exactly what this record, and this song are. CLICK HERE to watch the music video for “Gotta Be Cool!”
The cover of Lou Reed’s classic “Rock N’ Roll“ jamming on the B-side is certainly going to strike a chord with a lot of people, and the rainbow foil-stamped 70’s style picture sleeve ain’t too shabby either.
Hailed by many as a younger generation’s answer to The Clash, THE RATCHETS hold a special place in the hearts and playlists of many people all over the world.
This single exemplifies the primal energetic Punk Rock N’ Roll that has been flowing through the veins of these New Jersey staples for almost two decades, and how that passion is firing on all cylinders today.
Put on your Ray-Ban‘s, and pick up one of these ridiculously cool limited edition HOLOGRAM RECORDS today, because you GOTTA BE COOL too!
