bean-soupy Amazing politically charged Hardcore band. Best song: Who
I can't even explain how many of my friends who are PoC relate to that song Favorite track: Who.
krotix thumbnail
krotix Ohio hardcore punk, straight ahead music and personal /political lyrics that scorch. I can only imagine having to deal with Midwestern right wingers. Favorite track: Scum.
genocideshow thumbnail
genocideshow An all-black hardcore band that débuts a strong, original voice while staying true to the good, old-school HC formula. Calling out white supremacy, internalized oppression, patriarchal scene violence, addiction and the genocidal police, this is a classic ep in terms of form and content. I heard 'em scream "Like B.I.G I'm having suicidal thoughts...", and almost wept at music like this that is NOT afraid to be Black... Favorite track: Whitewashed.

You say you only kill when you fear for your life But you don't even know what true fear is like Black kids lay in the street But you say you want to keep the peace? Treating victims worse than murderers And you say you're here to protect and serve They control our cities Domestic terrorist with a badge Abusing your power through intimidation Do you feel like a man? You make me fucking sick
You have no passion You have no worth You leech off others To pretend you're something more You are nothing but leeches Draining from the host Taking pieces from other people You will never be more
No one wants to hear what you say You prey on women and think it's okay You treat them all like trophies You are the scum of the Earth. You predatory fuck, you think this is okay One day someone's going to put you in your place
Like B.I.G., I'm having suicidal thoughts Cause this world keeps bringing us down But we won't flow with the flock You try to whitewash our culture that helped build this shit Hundreds of years of chains This is "the land of the free" As long as your skin is white Or your pockets are green. You want to take our culture, but can't accept our skin Demolishing the "ghettos" to make hip places for the rich to live Whitewashed America, you whitewashed it all You want to steal our culture, but you can never steal our soul
They want to control the things that you say When you can say them and what it all means They want to control the things that you do And how we need to do it, don't step on their shoes Cash rules everything around us Pay to live, Pay to die Uncle Sam knows best, don't you question that Work to the bone to make millions for the few This is not your America, you don't own shit.
You flex your muscles But not your intellect Narrow mind, broad arms The alpha of the pit Preying on the weak to laugh with your friends Not going to the show for fun, But a contest of who's the biggest dick. Alpha never has no fun King of the Pit Alpha hurts everyone Alpha never has no fun Don't you know you have nothing to prove? No one gives a shit about your mosh moves. Pit Hero!
Who told you that your nose is wide? And who told you that your lips are big? Who told you that your hair is nappy? Who told you? Fuck what they told you This life wants you to know you lose You are not their standard of beauty From magazine to movies, this place wasn't built for us They want you to be disgusted But fuck them, and fuck their standards Who told you that you talk white? And who told you that you can't be yourself? Mind control through culture control
