BTO[edit]

Has anyone ever heard of this song being mis-labeled as by BTO? 76.65.20.250 (talk) 00:25, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

It was paired with BTO's "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" on a British oldies vinyl single, which may explain any mix-ups. Bretonbanquet (talk) 22:09, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

other rumors[edit]

This song came out the same year I entered The Citadel and there was a long standing rumor that song was about the school. There are numerous vague references and "Dinos bar and grill" was a popular cadet hangout for many years. Must have just been coincidental.23.24.109.165 (talk) 15:49, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

G.I. Joe is Back in Town[edit]

Originally, this song was called "G.I. Joe is Back in Town" and there are references out there that suggest the song's original lyrical intent. It referred not only to the popular toy line but also referred to all those soldiers returning home from the Vietnam War. I hope someone familiar with the song adds this information in the future.

  • The Theory about the Quality Street Gang is more widely reported and accepted these days rather than any of the various yarns about Vietnam (I personally hadn't heard this earlier name claim before though). Keresaspa (talk) 18:39, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
