    Ronnie Reagan was a doddering old uncle compared to this crew. I think songs like this were 20 yrs. ahead of their time:

    "Bleed For Me"

    You've been hanging 'round
    With an enemy of the state
    Come with me to the building
    That no-one stops to watch

    [Chorus]
    C'mon bleed
    C'mon bleed
    C'mon bleed
    Bleed for me

    We'll strap you to a pipe
    Electrodes on your balls
    C'mon scream
    C'mon writhe
    Face down in a pool of piss

    [Chorus]

    In the name of world peace
    In the name of world profits
    America pumps up our secret police
    America wants fuel
    To get it, it needs puppets
    So what's ten million dead?
    If it's keeping out the Russians

    We're well trained by the CIA
    With Yankee tax money in Ft. Bragg
    The Peace Corps builds US labor camps
    When they think they're building schools

    Ha Ha

    When cowboy Ronnie comes to town
    Forks out his tongue at human rights
    Sit down, enjoy our ethnic meal
    Dine on some charbroiled nuns
    Try a medal on
    Smile at the mirror as the cameras click
    and make big business happy-

    Anytime
    Anywhere
    Maybe you'll just disappear

    I saw the thread title and thought of "Kill the Poor."

    Sort of a Politics board/punk fan Rorschach test.

    This pop/punk lyric unfortunately seems destined to become timeless...

    "Bonzo goes to bitburg then goes out for a cup of tea
    As I watched it on TV somehow it really bothered me
    Drank in all the bars in town to understand the foreign policy
    Pick up the pieces"

    I'm an alky from NY. There's a lot more bars I gotta hit to figure it out.

    I may be a home but I have been paying attention to the lyrics to Guns n Roses "Civil War". As far as messages go, It was their absolute best and it still keeps on being valid

    Jello has put out a couple of albums with the Melvins over the last couple of years. Seig Howdy! is pretty good. I wouldn't be surprised if you see some classics about dubya coming to a music store near you.

    Ditto, a couple of months back while listening to G&R of old... Back in the early 90's i liked G&R too, but did not speak much English to get any of it......Furthermore, when i recently got the Civilk War lyrics off the internet, i found out a small part of the lyrics was taken from one of the "Shining Path" -Sendero Luminoso* -call to arms campaigns/addresses...IIRC, this part of teh song was used as a way to show the madness of never ending violence/revenge.....

    All in all, the message of the song has so many angles to it.... i really liked it....

    *Shining Path/Sendero Luminoso was/is a terrorist group that caused lots of violence/suffering in Peru, especially in the 80's and whose power has -thankfully- been greatly reduced and almost eliminated in current times.....

    Just for kicks I looked up the lyrics. All I could remember was Nazi punks, Nazi Punks, F OFF!
    So So true. Something the BS PC&E Leftist tribe could learn. THINK FOR YOURSELF.

    Um yes, because reading between the lines of "Punk means thinking for yourself", I guess he means think for yourself....... ;)

    Seriously, I think you know there were two general trends in punk at the time. One was Nazi punks who were just hateful of everyone and everything, destructive people. Then there were peace punks who while being misfits tried to live a pretty clean life and not be about hate and destruction. Most like Biafra and Rollins were peace punks. When I read P&CE, I see a lot of people more interested in being a part of their Leftist tribe and hating the other side than people who want to think for themselves and gain education by reading other ideas. Jello was an anarcist, not a communist, who hated everyone's rules for how to behave from Reagan's rules to Brown's rules.

    I've read a bunch of Biafra's stuff from the past two years and he still is very much against Bush, et. al. but he's also against the likes of Kerry and doesn't define victory as destroying the other side. He defines it as gaining acceptance for the idea of inclusiveness and freedom from any kind of conformity.

    I don't disagree with any of this, except that I am not sure why you would single out the "leftist tribe" while leaving out the Bill Archer Love Fest. I guess my comment was more accurately surprise that you would pull out your favorite punk tracks from yesteryear with your thoughts turning to people posting on Big Soccer. :D

    It may be time to step slowly away from your key board. ;)

    By the way, you should pick up Sieg Howdy! It's a very good album that includes some other stuff previoulsy released by Jello and the Melvins. California Uber Alles 21st Century is also a pretty sweet remake focusing on the Governator.

    In my own defense, I quoted California Uber Alis to start my rant.

    On a personal note, my computer was down for a few weeks. It was good time, better for me. I probably post for the same reason I do other things I shouldn't do. Maybe someday I'll go live an ascetic life. Not yet.

    Then there's this:

    Seems like the more i think i know
    the more i find i don't
    every answer opens up so many questions
    anarchy sounds good to me then someone asks, "who'd fix the sewers?" "would the rednecks just play king of the neighborhood?"

    Excellent. Here's a question I've always had:

    Where do ya draw the line

    Where do ya draw the line

    I'm not telling you

    I'm asking you

    I had the same thought a few weeks ago. Just switch Bush for Reagan in the lyrics.
