I usually say it's my favorite to gain supah cred. But beyond cred ity's the only one that's always been in my top 3 so I give ti props where due. I recently got it back from ym friend and we smoked a few bowls to it in ym car. When we got to Im insane it was awesome. There's a guitar in the background that sounds like a little machione monsters clankin around and wreakin havoc. It can be heard else where but set to im insane's jam and thruston's awesomely odd vocal delivery, it makes for my fav track on the record.

Satan is Boring is about some kids who got fucked up listening to Heavy Metal and one shot the other, I think it's that whole thing where they put Judas Priest on trial for the subliminal "DO IT"s in some song. I'm pretty sure Judas Priest won the case.

Lol I was just about to make a 'Bad Moon Rising' thead! Yeah It took ages for me to get into this album, but now its definently one of my favourites. I love everything about it. 'Society is a hole', 'I love her all the time' and 'Satan is Boring' (I can see why some might not like it though) are for me among the best things SY have written. I can only imagine what it felt like when this album came out (anyone here old enough to remember it coming out?), groundbreaking doesnt begin to describe it! Oh and it has to be mentioned the cover art is mindblowing!

C'mon... no one chose "Death Valley '69"

It's one of the most significant songs of that "era" for them. It changed them, musically. Not to mention it's one of the rare moments when there's a guest singer. It puts the finishing touch on probably their darkest, scariest, and forboding albums (I dare you to find one darker).

It's also a cool moment on the album. You have the first side a continuous piece of music (on the vinyl version), and the second side follows the same formula. But, right before the last song, it stops. and then...
(click, click, click, click) "AHHHHHHHHHHHH"

"Death Valley '69"

Don't get me wrong, the whole album is great, but THAT song...

wow.

wow.

For sure, Death Valley '69 is a killer track.........Lydia Lunch is another one of my favorite musicians, and her voice adds a gothic energy to that song. But I usually try to separate the rest of BMR from that particular track because I assume that most everybody enjoys that song. So when I want to know what people think about the album, I want to know what the masses think of the lesser known songs (in some aspects). Don't get me wrong.....I agree with everything you said about the track. It feels as though all of the previous songs are just anticipating Death Valley '69............and when it hits............It's a fucking train crash. Lydia's wail at the end always sends me shivers. True beauty destruction at its best.

A great album. Toxic Johnny nails it. It's got that late fall vibe. And I'm envious of the vinyl, you know, lucky bastard.

It's really great to play late at night, all the lights out, nobody else up, quiet outside. Can get spooky.

Yeah thats when i listen to it too! All the albums up too 'Dirty' are meant to be listened to at night. I Just turn all the lights off (apart from my pc screen)
light a candle or two and chill out in my room to 'Bad Moon Risng'. Its how its meant to be listened to

Awesome album all around. The music is amazing as are the lyrics. I think its one of the most varied albums (along with EVOL) in terms of being noisy, relaxed and rocking all at once.

I was saying that same thing in my mind but I try to be as openminded as possible.

Death Valley 69 is too rock for that album. Very overrated. The lyrics are sort of lame....

I can see where youre coming from. DV69 would fit better on the Halloween EP I think.

Its a lot different from the other tracks but thats why I think it makes for such an explosive ending.

The album really is probably their darkest musically. The intro sounds mildly cheerful but after that it changes. It took me a little while to fully appreciate the album but I really love it. It has a truly unique feel to it. Also love the booklet with the shots of them in the woods
