ARYAN DISGRACE – Faggot in the family

Aryan Disgrace was an ’80s punk band. I don’t think bands could get away with this type of music today. Then there was the Angry Samoans and their song Homo-sexual. “The song is about a guy who is keeping his homosexuality a secret from his family and how that is messed up.”

The punk movement, as I remember it, was very white. Perhaps it was a reaction to popular music becoming increasingly black?

Dirk: “There was a lot of stuff in early 80’s punk that wouldn’t be tolerated today. Lee Ving of Fear used to taunt the audience calling them a bunch of queers.”

Michael: “The Angry Samoan’s BACK FROM SAMOA album is one long macro-aggression against 2010s-sensibilities.”
