GG Allin: Public Animal No. 1

GG Allin was the true king of hardcore. If anyone ever says, "Hey, let's go watch a GG Allin video," be prepared to be sickened. He was actually as talented as he was twisted. A cousin of mine who lived at the same squat for a time once told me he was known by his smell (he never bathed). His later material was his most violent. I have a copy of his last album. He is lying dead in his coffin on the back cover. Depending upon whom one believes, he either died of a drug overdose or was beat to death by straight edge skinheads. Whatever, I'm sure if there's an afterlife, he's still eating his own feces.
