      Turning Japanese by The Vapors.

      Africa by Toto was racist in an oblivious “Africa is one thing” kinda way.


      • Vapors was my pick…..There has to be worse though?

          Stormtroopers of Death “speak English or die” maybe? They didn’t really mean it, though…

            I’m thinking more mainstream stuff. Like, you can just say Skrewdriver or that David Allen Coe bullshit, but that Genesis song was a Top 40 hit.

            (Fun fact: in college, TotD was in a band with Scott Ian’s wife, Pearl, who is Meatloaf’s daughter. We called her Pearl Loaf behind her back.)

          One in a Million by Guns. That one’s just fucking awful, and it was at the time, too. Jesus, how did that make it onto a major label release?

            I hear you. Sod was not something you were gonna hear on a Saturday morning countdown, and there are always racist hateful shitheads making bad music.
            (Fun racist musician fact: a guy I was in a band with was hired by David Allen Coe for a show in a chuck berry local pickup band fashion)

            Lies, yeah. Meteoric rise, no new album for awhile, execs weigh racist / homophobic lyrics against making a pile of money, you know the rest.

        • I was layed up with a broken pelvis years ago, while recuperating I hazily watched an MTV show about a super group with Scott Ian, Sebastian Bach, Ted Nugent, and Jason Bonham…..managed by Doc Mcgee. I’m positive Pearl was on it too (as positive as someone heavily medicated could be).
