HAYMAKER: Fuck America: 7″

Musically, this is good. Solid, fast hardcore. But I looked at the lyrics. I’m no big fan of all governmental policy by any means, but this just pushes it too far. One of the problems is that they never specify anything. It’s just fuck America, government is big brother, blabitty blah. Nothing solid, no examples, no reason for this hatred. To top it off, the solution offered is violent (and grammatically incorrect): “We’ll attack with knife/cut out your eyes/slit your throats/and hang you by your string of lies,/your a politician/a fucking liar.” Plus, in the liner notes it says, “In God we trust, all others we kill!!!” That scares me.
