Social Distortion - 1945



California's Social Distortion came into existence at the end of the 70's so can rightly be called punk veterans. Featuring the distinctive vocals of frontman/guitarist Mike Ness they've released 7 studio albums and can cite influences including from Johnny Cash, The Clash, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams and Eddie Cochrane. This is an early single and it concerns the American bombing of Hiroshima, this is 1945.....

Atom bomb, TNT 
New disease, poor city 
Flying over Hiroshima, 1945 
The city looks small from way up here 
I wonder who'll survive

Atom bomb, TNT 
New disease, poor city 
A blinding flash hotter than the sun 
Dead bodies lie across the path
The radiation colors the air 
Finishing one by one

Atom bomb, TNT 
New disease, poor city 
A blinding flash hotter than the sun 
Dead bodies lie across the path 
The radiation colors the air 
Finishing one by one
