Total Massacre - Border Wall



  Total Massacre are from Los Angeles and list amongst their influences the likes of Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Adolescents and Dead Kennedys as well as oi legends such as Angelic Upstarts and The Oppressed. They play aggressive hardcore punk and write politically charged songs on subjects like how the system works for the rich but not the poor, dipshit president Trump, casting off your chains and taking to the streets and how if you're a fascist they're coming for you. They've just self released new album The System Works... and it's both powerful and thought provoking. It's available on vinyl and as a name your price download :    https://totaleffingmassacre.bandcamp.com/album/the-system-works

  Despite being an LA band, gravel throated frontman Cap'n No Fun's accent sounds (to my grizzled old ears) as though he's Australian (he also brings to mind the vocals on classic track Stuart by The Dead Milkmen!). I really enjoyed his vocal performance. The rest of the band, Mike, Jeff and Tommy all provide suitably boisterous backing. This song is about white supremacy and it's called Border Wall...

The legacy of slavery: 
The dumbest assholes in the 
Whole fucking country get 
Representative democracy, while 
The rest of us get stuck paying 

For a border wall 
A total waste of cash 
What's it good for? Votes in Texas 

Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall 

What's it good for? 
Midwest votes 
Sausage-eating assholes 
What a brain-dead shitshow 
But they love their 

Border wall 
Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall 

Grandma and grandpa 
Retire down south 
Sure, they're afraid of their brown-skinned neighbors, but 
Their vote counts 

More than yours 
More than mine 
Turns out it's worth more than 
All of ours combined 
We couldn't possibly have designed 
A dumber system if we fucking tried 

There's a lot of things 
You gotta remember in 2019 
They mean voter suppression 
When they say "voter ID." 
When they say 
"border security," 
Those motherfuckers mean white supremacy 

Oh yeah, and uhhhh 
Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall 
Fuck their border wall
