DOA - We Occupy (Single)

Price: $2.00

 

 

 

We Occupy is the first single from D.O.A.'s new studio album We Come In Peace. The godfathers of hardcore have teamed up with their pal JELLO BIAFRA, to produce an anthem for our age. We Occupy, perhaps surprisingly to the uninitiated, is an upbeat ska based tune, with plenty of D.O.A. rock guitar to power it along. But it's the lyrics that really make it shake. Punk pioneer JOE SHITHEAD KEITHLEY, a big backer of OCCUPY WALL STREET, tells it like it is, we're getting ripped off by the greedy and powerful. Joe asked his long time friend, the incomparable JELLO BIAFRA to sing on the song. JELLO, no stranger to taking on pompous asses and authority quickly agreed. The combo is powerful and timely.

The B side is Who The Hell Do You Think You Are, JOE wrote the music for this at the behest of playwright MICHAEL SCHOLAR, who's play Hardcore Logo: Live is an adaptation of MICHAEL TURNER'S underground classic book Hardcore Logo ( also a film by BRUCE MCDONALD). JOE took the lyrics in TURNER'S book about a fictional punk rock band and came up with a great song. Who The Hell Do You Think Are is an instant punk rock, beery, sing-a-long. This b side will not be included on We Come In Peace.
