HIT: STOP THE TRASHING AND BEGIN THE THRUSTING
In the early 1990’s, there was a mass exodus from the city of New York. People were fleeing crime and violence.
Some of them decided to go back to their old lives and some of them decided to stay away from it all together. They left behind everything they had ever known or loved. All because they couldn’t take anymore! Nowadays, these people are called “hits”.
And what do they want?
To live in peace and quiet. But they don’t have any choice but to follow the rules of society. These are the rules which govern their daily life:
1) No drugs, alcohol or tobacco use.
2) No stealing anything from anyone, no matter how small.
3) No sexual activity except within marriage between one man and one woman.
4) No gambling or other forms of entertainment which involve chance or chance results.
5) No begging or asking for money.
6) No lying.
7) No fighting or arguing with others.
8) No being violent towards others.
9) No taking drugs, drinking alcohol or smoking tobacco products at all times.
10) Don’t litter anywhere around your home or workplace (except when cleaning up after yourself). 11) Don’t spit in public places like streets, sidewalks, parks etc…
12) If you see someone committing a crime, call the police immediately!
These rules are not up for debate. If you break them then you will be sent to a correctional facility for a period of time determined by the seriousness of your crime.
And that’s it. Some people might think this is a bit much. But if they really thought about it, they’d realize that society doesn’t have a whole lot to offer beyond these rules.
And who would want to live like that?
The reason for these rules are to create a better society. A society without crime or violence. A society where all people respect each other and all people work together for the greater good. Ultimately, it’s a society which is worth protecting. And that’s why you have these rules.
DON’T LITTER ANYWHERE AROUND YOUR HOME OR WORKPLACE!
Litterbugs are not welcome in this community!
So, what is “HIT: Stop the Trashing and Begin the Thrashing”?
It’s the latest release from the thrash metal band Body Count. This controversial album features lots of lyrics about killing cops and disregarding society’s rules. In fact, it even has profanity and violence.
But does that mean you should listen to it?
Well, that’s for you to decide. But be warned that this isn’t your average type of music.
Here’s a sample of the lyrics from the song called “Trashing, Rioting, and Mugging”.
What you gonna do when we come to your neighborhood?
We gonna mug you, we gonna shot you, we gonna drop you, light you on fire!
Then we gonna turn this whole block out.
Anybody tries to stop us we’re gonna bust them, too.
It’s time to do what we planned to do!”
