(or "The Campbell Trio Interprets the Hardcore")

lyrics

It could have been just like life should be but it ended being just another teenage fever. White, male, straight, elitist, sexist, cis, capitalist. A spectacle of raised fists, empty words and carbon copies. So, when you called me a pariah, you could not be more correct. It is a fact: I do not belong, I am out of step with it. But Phill, my friend, you can be sure that it is true to me what you once told me and on my chest I will always carry: a protest song is a song that is so specific that you cannot mistake it for bull shit.

"Sings the Blues is a hardcore ogre with a gentle and experimental soul. I mean, a pariah, an outsider."
--Gustavo Brigatti.

"A protest song is a song that's so specific that you cannot mistake it for bull shit."
--Phill Ochs

"Punk rock was invented so that ugly women would have something to do on Saturday night."
--Brian Baker
