Episode 134: GG Allin- The King of BTFU
We are kicking off Halloween month with a pretty horrifying story. GG Allin's life was terrible from the get-go, and it didn't get any better as he grew up. Some think he was a legendary performer, while others see his on stage antics as downright criminal (cause they were). His unbelievable actions on and off the mic have influenced the punk scene for years beyond his death. There were many factors that went into this infamous musician, who preferred to call himself a rock n roll terrorist. This episode, we dig into someone who we absolutely do not condone, but tell the story as a cautionary tale; that mental health is very important and art can definitely go too far.
