80s Hardcore

Say It LOUD A.C.A.B…. Smash Racism Mixtape!

In the late 70s and 1980s, the underground was at the forefront of fighting the mainstream racists that controlled the police, the government and society at large – racism infiltrated every aspect of life, including the underground itself, but punks were not going to let their expression be squashed by ignorant groupthink. Sadly, 40 years later, we have the same problem; a racist head of state, racist cops killing people of color, and neo-nazis and alt-right marching the streets for fear of losing their privilege. It’s our job in the underground to stand up for our brothers and sisters who fought these same fucks when we were just babies. We draw influence from our punk forebears, but many of us won’t stand for the same values of inclusion that they did. Time for that to stop – there’s no place for racism in the underground, overground or anywhere in the universe. Our homie Michael Cohn has put together a mixtape that will inspire you to take to the streets to protect your fellow humans from the lowest common denominator of society who thinks that his melanin deficiency and his tiki torch make him better than everyone else. Bash the fash, kill the nazis, nazi punks fuck off!
