Gung Ho is the eighth studio album by Patti Smith, released March 21, 2000 on Arista Records. The song "New Party" was used as the official song for the 2000 Ralph Nader's presidential campaign. The song "Glitter in Their Eyes" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance in 2001. The record was included in Rolling Stone's "Top 50 Albums of 2000". As of February 2004, Gung Ho had sold 49,000 copies in the United States according to Nielsen Soundscan. This is the first Patti Smith album to not include her on the cover (it shows, instead, a picture of her father, Grant Smith). The title refers to a Chinese phrase meaning "work together" adopted by the US Marines during World War II as a morale-building slogan.more »
