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“
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.
