If you did some research, I'm sure you can find out a lot of unsavory things about famous punk rockers.

 

Besides, I learned to separate the music from the politics/message a long time ago. Me and my gay black friends have been known to listen to Skrewdriver. They were a damn good punk band, and it's pretty easy to laugh at Ian Stuart...he's so crazy!

 

And taking it a bit farther, if I were to write off Bad Brains for their homophobia, I would have to write off a lot of the reggae that I like.

 

I'm not a right wing douchebag, far from it. However, I'm not politically correct in the sense that I have tolerance for everyone's opinions and ideas without exception...it makes the world a lot more interesting.

"I then ask him for his Blackberry number, so we can stay in touch this weekend. He handwrites out a note that says “H.R. Human Rights, Good Brains, XXX – XXX - XXXX, Hallelujah, Rasta.” Two hours later I’ll call the number and somebody named Matt will answer who has no fucking idea who H.R. is."

yeah, symbols made the og thread.

 

hell yeah i did!

bad brains are fuckin awesome.

if you don't love em, i'd say give a lil love for inspiring a ton of bands.

 

and 80s hardcore? gimme a break. they go beyond that classification with the variety of tunes they bring. and not many chanty choruses in their songs.

i saw em at my very first show in 1988. that was when they were breakin up.

Blck Dots was recorded in 1979. so you can hate on 80s hardcore all you want but i wouldn't put bad brains in with bands like judge, COC and gorilla biscuits

Really brah? i know shit loads of people disagree but to me just sticking to 80's US hardcore is fucking boring. partially because the "punks" where i live are all early 90's born kids obsessed with 80's HC and late 70's surf. plus everywhere else in the world had sick bands in the 80's. japanese dust noise crust bands, sweeden and uk's d beat bands, 80's finnish hc even Hollands SXE 80's punk bands all catch my attention way more than 99% of the rubber stamped watered down shitty 80's punk bands in the US.

 

but honestly i just hated the sound of HR's voice. if its 80's us hc i listen to cro mags, negative approach, DYS, pre rollins Black Flag and the mother fucking king of punks POISON IDEA and alot more so its not like i'm discrediting all us 80's hc. I just don't think its the end all of what punk in the states is.

 

and bad brains fucking suck.

 

 

i never said i stick to 80's hardcore. i listen to a ton of eclectic shit, hardcore just happens to be #1

and all while getting blasted on dope.

 

That's probably what made it all possible.

 

I just read the story of the guy having to babysit HR. There's a cautionary tale if I ever read one...granted, it is on a SXE site but it rings true. I've heard variations on that theme more times than I can remember from people in the art and music business.

 

It sounds like people are doing their best to look out for the guy and he doesn't have to sleep in a car with no windows, so that's good to know.

The shows are kinda hard to get into. Your with a ton of punks and gettin into the hardcore aspect, getting in the pit and having a good time. Then they bust out 2 slow ass reggae songs. Kinda kills the momentum of the whole experience. Damn good band tho.
