Kill Your Sons (5:43)

All you two-bit psychiatrists
Are giving you electroshock
They said, they'd let you live at home with Mom and Dad
Instead of mental hospitals

  • They're gonna kill your sons, and this chills me everytime
  • great angry lyrics (2)
  • Excellent song
  • Great song - sick that this sort of thing happened. At times America clearly learnt little from the Nazis, but homosexuality is perfectly fine ^_^ I'm happy to be the way I am. ;)
  • What the hell is this? I want to hear the original Kill Your Sons from Sally Can't Dance (1974) not a live version from the '80s! Unbelievable!
  • Who says its a disease? some of my best friends are, its not a badge, its a free choice and ass it should be. Yeah its Lou's pre Velvets Auto-bio song
  • YES! WHERE'S THAT AXE?! every time i listen to it i get so fucking angry. it's unbelievable that even today you can still find people who claim that homosexuality is a disease. listen to this, you morons, look where your thinking leads to.
  • oh its the proper version now. THATS BETTER! now wheres that axe
  • doesnt sound as brutal as the original
  • Vai Lou sei tutti noi!
