Watching Emilio Estevez sing “We’ve got nothing better to do, than watch TV and have a couple of brews…” in the movie Repo Man has a profound effect on every young punk growing up in the early 80’s. Well, at least it has an effect on me. I can totally relate to what the character in the movie was going through at the time: bored, alienated, disenfranchised, or just plain pissed off.
Let’s talk about my post before I get too emotional and smash someone’s skull. This band needs no introduction, BLACK FLAG, and their song TV Party is one of the few songs I sing to Dylan when I’m putting him to sleep (the others were Bikeage by Descendents and Minor Threat by Minor Threat). TV Party’s got great lyrics and great melody. Melody? Not something you’d expect from one of the progenitors of hardcore, but yes it has a great melody. Plus I can insert my own favorite TV shows and some stupid local soap operas just for laughs.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the post. By the way, Slip It In was recently posted at Hangover Heart Attack, check it out.
