4 GREAT PUNK LYRICS SEARED INTO MY BRAIN UNTIL DEATH

1. "He tried to stand up to Fidel / But nearly got us blown to Hell / Said he'd get us to the moon / But spent all his time chasing poon!" - THE HUNS, "Glad He's Dead"

2. "Now I guess I'll have to tell 'em / That I've got no cerebellum" - THE RAMONES, "Teenage Lobotomy"

3. "Kill them 'cause their hair's too long / Kill them 'cause their views are wrong" - DEADBEATS, "Kill The Hippies"

4. "Hey Cop! I just shot some crank / I just got out of the tank / I just robbed a bank / I feel pretty rank" - THE NUBS, "Job"

What a coincidence-- the Ramones and the Deadbeats lyrics you mentioned are two that I have stuck in my brain, also.

Along with "Our attention's undivided/Dammit, we're excited!", unfortunately.

"Kill them 'cause you don't like what they wear, kill them 'cause their stink fills up the air!"

That song is a gift that just keeps giving.

Have you ever seen this before? It's awesome.

Deadbeats "Kill The Hippies" video

Aw, crap, never mind-- it's been removed.

Maybe 10 or 20 years ago, someone had taken documentary footage of the Monterey Pop Festival and a few other things and made a video for "Kill The Hippies" out of it. The guy who made the video then posted it on YouTube a couple of months ago, but now it's been taken down.

five faves:

1. "I was standing in front of the Filmore / Getting the munchies, with Gary Gilmore / Being hungry ain't against the law / Why waste food? Eat 'em raw!" - The Chain Gang, "Gary Gilmore and the Island of Dr. Moreau"

2. "You took your clothes off / I started to laugh" -
Angry Samoans, "You Stupid Asshole"

3. "I met her at the Burger King / We fell in love by the soda machine" - Ramones, "Oh Oh I Love Her So"

4. "Tossed you a blade to see if you'd dare / You tried to act like you're too tough to care" - Zeros, "Wimp"

5. "Black man, spic man, fag man, jew (!!!!) / New York, let's get rid of you!" - Randoms, "Let's Get Rid of NY"

"Everything looks better when the world is black.
So grab some forks and make your first attack"

Angry Samoans, "Lights Out"

I can't remember anything specific, but I used to get a kick from Flipper on their first LP as well. ("Life, Life, Life is the only thing worth living for")
