  • CBGB gingerbread house
24, 24 hours to go, we wanna be sedated -- with cookies and sugar. Perhaps we will be if we tear into the most punk rock gingerbread house ever. Didn't think punk and baked goods could go together? Think again.

We spotted this gingerbread replica of legendary NYC nightclub CBGB's, where everyone including The Ramones, The Misfits, The Dead Boys, The Cramps, Blondie, Television, Patti Smith and Talking Heads played, floating around on the internet. We have no idea where it came from, but to whoever created, we doff our studded leather jacket in your direction.
