“Olympia, WA” (1995) ("52nd and Broadway” lyric)
"Olympia, WA" by the punk band Rancid was on their album ...And Out Come the Wolves (1995). The lyrics mention the corner of 52nd Street and Broadway. Someone should tell Rancid that "Big Apple Corner" is 54th Street and Broadway.

We clearly need another Rancid song. This stinks.
