D.O.A.: Hard Rain Falling: CD

Jan 19, 2016

I had to check to be sure this wasn’t a reissue of one of D.O.A.’s early-’80s albums, because these Canadian punk pioneers have hardly changed for nearly forty years. They still bang out primitive, electrified protest music with all the subtlety of a giant middle finger. Anyone can pick up on what’s going on, and it’s hard not to shout along with hardcore songs like “Racism Sucks” and “The Cops Shot a Kid.” Twelve songs, including a truly excruciating cover of the reggae classic “Johnny Too Bad.”
