D.R.I. (Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) - I Don’t Need Society

“Your numbers up you have to go
The system say’s "I told you so”
Stocked in a train like a truckload of cattle
Sent off to slaughter in a useless battle
Thousands of us sent off to die
Never really knowing why
Fuck the system they can’t have me
I don’t need society


1987. Crossover

is the third album by band D.R.I.(Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) , was suitingly named since the songs on this album had a strong metal sound to them. As the band began to “crossover” to thrash, their songs became longer, slower, and more complex. The press has called D.R.I. the major band of the “crossover” movement, a style that combined hardcore punk and heavy metal. This music invited a mixed audience of punks, skinheads, and metal fans to their shows.

The Live At The Ritz video was recorded next, on June 27, 1987, at The Ritz in New York, during the band’s worldwide Crossover tour.
