For the record, it was Faron Young's first #1 country record, from early 1955. "This was a tune I detested," Faron said. "Ken Nelson made me record this song. I put it out and it was a big, big hit. Then I got to liking it." "Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young, Wear a Bright Blue Suit To Be Buried In"
So you thought the 'Live Fast, Die Young...' meme originated in the Hard Rock culture of the 60s-70s? Uh, nope.
