I’m sure you’ve been wondering how far into our Insect Music series it would take us to get to a song and video with lyrics including “Rats on the West Side, Bed Bugs Uptown.”  Without any further wait, here’s The Rolling Stones’ “Shattered,” live in concert!  Enjoy! 

While New York has changed a lot since 1978 when this song was first recorded, the Rats and Bed Bugs are still there – with the biggest Rat problems Uptown and on the East Side, and Bed Bugs all over town!
