That's the title of what is known as "Bonzo Goes To Bitburg."
Johnny was a serious conservative-type (and Joey & Dee Dee were not) and the strong hero worship thing was going on about Reagan so they found a sorta middle ground on the title (it's actually "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo Goes To Bitburg)"). One version was supposedly released as "Bonzo Goes To Bitburg" and then renamed but I've always seen it on recordings as "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down" with the Bonzo title in parantheses and don't think I've ever seen one just with the Bonzo title on the recording.
The song isn't just about Reagan going to Germany. It's more about him going to a cemetary in Bitburg which has a large number of graves of Waffen-SS soldiers. Reagan supposedly only went to keep Kohl from losing face but the whole thing left a pretty nasty taste in the mouths of a great many people and so the song is a protest about the visit and callous foreign policy.

The first Graves cd 'Punk Rock is Dead' I think isn't THAT amazing, but the others are excellent.
I saw the Misfits live a few years ago, but not been keen since Project 1950's really.
I also like Danzig (albums 1-4). His voice hasn't been so good since Blackacidevil.
Listening to Three Days Grace's new album: 'The Transit of Venus'. When I first saw the cover art-work I nearly freaked out and thought 'Oh no, not another solid rock band that turns pop!' But I like it so far
Oh, totally forgot about Danzig..... 'It's just a dirty black summer, Oh whoa whoa ho, a black summer-time, Oh whoa whoa!' , where's my iPod...
Does anybody remember this one ???
It's Visage - Fade To Grey ...circa 1980.
(The video is cool but it's not the original.)

soo.... wife and i were in the garage drinking. i turned on the cd player in my truck so she could hear how good it sounds (foster the people - helena beat) and i heard a big boom while standing outside the truck.. i thought my amp or something blew, or my neighbor kicked the wall in her house 'cause my music was too loud lol...
... i heard a house(es) exploding ~5 or so miles away.. big breaking news on all local channels right now. i also had the scanner going and its chaos sounds like. the mayor is even on the scene.. crazy. we can smell the fire at my house right now.
I've been waiting 5 minutes for iTunes to boot on my Mac......so I can't listen to ANYTHING!!!!!!!!
I'd switched to 'Songbird' but it's not compatible with iOS devices!!!!!!
