    General CommentI don't know about "I don't know how to read notes", but the rest of it is a list of groups whose albums were being burned at a conservative christian protest circa the 1980's. Negativland sampled the same thing, and in fact this was probably just taken directly from their album.

    General Comment"I don't know how to read notes" is sampled from Judy Garland's infamous drunken audio memoirs.
