Aldo Nova-Guitar and Vocals

This version of Monkey On Your Back-Live is a special version made especially for all the people that are stuck at home because of the Coronavirus better known as COVID-19.
“Monkey On Your Back” was originally written and recorded on Aldo Nova’s album Subject in 1983 and it was recognized as the first anti-drug anthem.
It was, and is, about the devastating effects that heroin had on society. Now 37 years later in 2020, the song is even more relevant than it was back then because of the resurgence of Heroin in today’s modern culture except that today the drug is cut with an extremely powerful anesthetic known as Fentanyl making it 100x more dangerous leading to an epidemic number of overdose casualties.
Like Aldo wrote in 1983, “Clean up your act ’cause the man in the black will show you a dragon that bites and then you’ll wind up with a Monkey, a Monkey On Your Back.”
