A classic track from Slayer's 1994 album, Divine Intervention. Guitarist Kerry King, who wrote the music and lyrics, named the song Dittohead in tribute to American talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. (A dittohead is someone who listens avidly to The Rush Limbaugh Show.)

This fucking country's lost its grip
Sub-conscious hold begins to slip
The scales of justice tend to tip

The legal system has no spine
It's corroding from inside
Slap your hand you'll do no time

Reality on vacation
All across a blinded nation
Mentally under sedation

Anyone can be set free
On a technicality
Explain the law again to me

Here in 1994
Things are different than before
Violence is what we adore

Invitation to the game
Guns and blades and media fame
Every day more of the same

Murder, mayhem, anarchy
Now are all done legally
Mastermind your killing spree

Unafraid of punishment
With a passive government
There's nothing for you to regret

Nothing to regret

Unimposing policy
No enforcing ministry
Gaping with judicial flaws
Watch a fading nation crawl

Clashing with the public's frame
I'm the one that's placed in fame
Legislature sets the stage
Social slaves caught in my rage

Administrative anarchy, there's nothing you can do to me
The world around you drifting to a continental tomb you see
Violence is my passion, it will never be contained
Living with aggression and its everlasting reign

I'm thinking...

...Richard must be a fan of Stryper.

Linz has cleared it all up for me.

Now I understand that I shouldn't focus on trifles such as the detention of America citizens with no evidence, notice, warrant, right to representation, right to speedy trial, right to counsel.

It is fucking Sesame Street Slayer mash-ups like THIS that are killing America.

And it is verminous cretins like YOU Dr. Goode, who are ruining America.

Not Democrat hogs spending us into oblivion.

Not Republican hypocrites who scream "small government" and give us ever larger.

Not al Quaeda that blows us up.

Not the fact that our governments are broke and keep on spending.


So, Dr. No-Goode-nic, stop with the Slayer and Sesame Street. Or better yet, replace the Slayer with Mario Lanza or some Rach, and the ship will magically, mystically right itself.

DO NOT doubt the importance of ART -- nay, the PRIMACY of ART!

Please do so, post-haste.

Though I wonder...if Slayer is the problem...why...I am the only one...trying to change it...and posting on this thread....

WAIT, NO!!! I started thinking like a pomo-Saddamite treasonous traitor Airhead American there for a second!!!!!!!!!!

No more Slayer! Rebirth of America! Yay!

Pretty funny!
