  7. I've got the "born dead" Bodycount album.
    "Necessary evil" is a great track- but the mix is terrible- drums too loud and no bass- the "and justice for all" syndrome.

    Those guys could wail. They were kind of experimental. Some stuff (cop killer, there goes the neighborhood, kkk b!tch)) is like punk rock, but they threw in typical lame metal sound (body motha####in count) and some other stuff (as well as parts of the other songs) was kinda stoner rock. They did a sweet cover of "Hey Joe" on a Hendrix tribute (And people think gangsta rap was the first genre to speak of "capping dirty b***hes").

    Just be careful where you white guys roll around blasting "There goes the neighborhood." Some people don't know that's Ice T singing.

    Ice T is probaly in my top 5 musicians/artist that I highly respect list. Every time I see the man in an interview, I shut up and listen to what he has to say. Very intelligent and very real guy.
     
  11. It's sad that their bassist, Mooseman, was gunned down a some years back.
    I've met Ice-T though and he is a pretty cool guy.
