Who’s to say whether or not, It’s a crime to kill some unborn child, Before it’s born. You don’t even know what it’s like, To raise a kid With income just enough to, Live in a ditch. Don’t tell me about your story, I’ve heard it all before. Money I rarely see. I’m fucking poor. My kid will grow up in the streets, And fucking rob you. You say to let him live, Just wait to see what he’ll do. Reagan cuts welfare for birth control. He say’s it’s justified with correct morals. If you say it’s wrong, man Well, you go get fucked! Go out an get some broad knocked up. Then what? Who’s to say whether or not, It’s a crime to kill some unborn child, Before it’s born. You don’t even know what it’s like, To raise a kid, With income just enough to Live in a ditch. Can’t you see I don’t want to know about your story? ‘Cause I’ve heard it all before. Money I rarely see. 'Cause, 'cause I’m… I’m fucking poor. My kid will grow up in the streets, And fucking rob you. You say to let him live, You’ll see just what he’ll do. Bullshit!
Day 93 - Rich Kids On LSD - RocK n’ RolL Nightmare
Unreal. The way RKL played everything was unreal. Fat Mike was a HUUUUUUUGE fan of them (They tried to get onto Mystic records because RKL was on that label), and this was the album he always wished NOFX could pull off. Here’s a quote Fatty said about this album:
“After Keep Laughing, RKL was the band that we wanted to be, but couldn’t pull it off. A year goes by. Rock ‘n Roll Nightmare comes out. Now we’re totally fucked. Suddenly, the best hardcore band of our time just got one hundred times better. This record is a landmark. No band has ever written anything like it…we listened to it at least twice a day, everyday… Twenty years later, I pull out Rock 'n Roll Nightmare and put it on. I realize that after all these years of touring and recording my band still can’t pull off any of this. I can’t play these bass riffs, Melvin can’t touch the guitar, and Smelly—who is a great drummer—can’t even come close to what Bomer can do”
He said this in 2007, 24 years into his bands career. Seriously, if that can’t get you even a little curious about RKL, you’d have to be on drugs.
