FUCKING COPS, THE: You Have the Right to Shut the Fuck Up: Cassette

When I first put this on I wasn’t too impressed and was thinking it was nothing new or whatever. It only took another listen for me to pull the stick out of my ass and get down to it. After that, I was listening to this every morning in the shower. Seven awesome, sloppy, melodic punk songs often delivered in a gang-vocal style. It’s the kind of punk that is being played in a basement near you and everywhere else in the country every Friday night, yet as long as there’s struggle, it will remain relevant to the punks. Positive anthems and fuck you’s to The Man, some songs of love, the agony of being broke, and work. This is a good tape. If you get it, you’ll like it. If you go and see them, I imagine they’ll make your weekend.
