"...invaded by hordes of scummy, race-mixing traitors and Red-led Marxist mongrels demanding human rights for subhumans. Yes, once again, we see amassed the underground army of social malcontents, racial throwbacks, and genetically-botched black boneheads--this army of ghetto guerrillas and street-razor savages that has turned our cities into jungles and our schools into battlefields. Now this army of the ignorant, the shiftless, the criminal and the irresponsible, after receiving billions upon billions of dollars in federal aid, for everything from free food to free abortions,
they now come to Washington, D.C. to demand a national holiday for this doubly-degenerate, Jew-
led, Red jungle bunny responsible for their freedom to lope their way through life at the white man's expense. Martin Luther King, a mm mm mm mm, Communist Jew, a member of no less than 62 Communist Party front groups, a black man who
lusted after white women, who embraced the teachings of a half-pint Hindu, and a Christ-hating Jew. This criminal Communist coon, they want a
national holiday for him? Ridiculous."


Bit me
Bit me 'cause he thought I was black
Bit me, musta thought I was black
Looks like a rat, looks like a rat
Seth is just a racist dog
I don't know why he's so mean
I don't know why she's so screwed-up
I don't know why he's so mean
I don't know why she's so screwed-up
Bit me 'cause he thought I was black
Bit me, musta thought I was black
Blast me in the shack, then he sent off his dog
Seth is just a racist dog
I don't know why he's so mean
I don't know why she's so screwed-up
I don't know why he's so mean
I don't know why she's so screwed
I don't know why he's so mean
I don't know why she's so screwed-u-

    General CommentIt's about a guy who has a dog trained to attack black people. Don't know who the opening clip comes from.
    The song is off the Bulldozer EP, which Albini had initially wanted to call "Hey, Nigger", with a drawing of a repulsive, overweight, inbred redneck hick on the cover shouting the line. " The idea being that an offensive term used by an offensive person is only offensive if you allow that person's commentary to have some weight or value." So it wasn't meant to be malicious or biggoted or racist, he was trying to make a point. Fortunately, the combined efforts of everybody he knew managed to convince him to change the title.

    General CommentAccording to the sleeve notes in the EP the rant at the start is "from the America First Committee telephone hotline".

    I read an interview somewhere where Albini says he recorded it directly off the phone.

    General Comment"Bit me 'cause he thought I was black"

    Evokes the dialog between Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken in True Romance whether the song is personal-assuming the lyrics are by Albini.

    General Commenti have a big black bootleg recorded live at Club 950, 1983 (my copy is called big black live cassette) where you can clearly hear that the actual lyrics are "i don't know why he's so mean, i don't know why she's so secretive"... it's on youtube as well, look it up.
