Rock'n'Roll Suicide
A clichéd story, made worse in the case of Darby Crash
of the Germs by timing. He killed himself the night before John Lennon was shot in 1980. So the next day, a bunch of middle-aged ex-hippies were walking around with black armbands. Sweetly baby-faced and surprisingly gay considering the context (that's Pat Smear who later played with Nirvana and the Foo Fighters on the right,) Darby and The Germs necessarily, but unfortunately exploded the L.A. music scene. Really listen to this song.


From the Decline of Western Civilization
