You tell me what to say and when to say it. you tell me what to do and how to do it. And if I ask you why, yoou'll arrest me. And if I call you lie, you'll detest me. You control what I'll be, you control who I see. And if I let you you'll control me. You're the man who owns all the keys to the stores. You're the man who always wants so much more. You're the regulator.

    They said they were homophobes for a little bit because they were just getting into Rastafarianism and were very zealous about it. They grew up and saw past the ignorance.

    Shred they had an issue with Big Boys and MDC went off on Bad Brains for it. The Dicks MDC Big Boys all kick ass as well as Bad Brains. They grew up and realize that everyone is just a person. They uesd to be biggots, but not any more they are not ignorant.

    the first guitar note and cymbal crash is one the best 'punch in the face' music moments ever.

    I saw them approximately a million years ago when they toured through san francisco. They are good in the "American Hardcore" doc as well. The homophobia seemed to have blossomed as they took the full-on rasta worldview on. The clash on the front yard was with the big boys or .... the dicks, I forget. That was a real turn-off at the time. But their involvement in the dc scene was commendable as well. OK, Grampa Moses is done rolling out the papyrus scrolls, carry on.

    wern't they homophobes or something? i vaguely remember reading they clashed with another band over the frontman's sexual orientation. such bad style . . . . .
