"New Rose" was the first single by British punk rock group The Damned, released on October 22, 1976. It was the first single by a British punk group, and was released in the Netherlands, Germany, and France in 1977. Written by guitarist Brian James, "New Rose" was issued on the Stiff Records label. The B-side was a cover of The Beatles' hit "Help!", performed about twice as fast as The Beatles's original version. Both songs have since become staples of The Damned's live shows, and appear on various compilations, and "New Rose" was included on the group's full-length debut Damned Damned Damned. The single was reissued in Stiff's mail order Damned 4 Pack mail-order set. A CD version was issued in the Stiff Singles 1976-1977 boxed set by Castle Music in 2003. "Help!" also appears on Hits Greatest Stiffs.


The Damned are a punk rock group originally from Croydon, England, a suburb of London, who were formed in 1976. Despite being one of the definitive early punk bands they were also one of the most ambitious; with their later albums moving away from the breakneck garage sound of their debut and taking in elements from goth and psychedelia to prog and metal. They are notable for being the first of the British punk bands to release a single, put out an album, and tour the United States. Show more ...

New Rose - The Damned

Is she really going out with him?

I got a feeling inside of me
It s kind of strange like a stormy sea
I don t know why I don t know why
I guess these things have got to be

I gotta new rose I got her good
Guess I knew that I always would
I can t stop to mess around
I got a brand new rose in town

See the sun see the sun it shines
Don t get too close or it ll burn your eyes
Don t you run away that way
You can come back another day

I got a new rose I got her good
Guess I knew that I always would
I can t stop to mess around
I got a brand new rose in town

I never thought this could happen to me
This is strange why should it be
I don t deserve somebody this great
I d better go or it ll be too late

I got a feeling inside of me
It s kind of strange like a stormy sea
I don t know why I don t know why
I guess these things have got to be

I got a new rose I got her good
Guess I knew that I always would
I can t stop to mess around
I got a brand new rose in town
