"World War Iii" as written by and Scott Douglas Victor/brewer Russo....
This is a question of the human
Race will this planet remain in
Space two world leaders get
In a fight we'll all be gone

In a flash of light
When I die for my country
I'll take no part in the destruction
From World War III

I have no answer not my
Decision and if I spoke no one
Would listen is this the end
Of history, why should I care

Why should I worry
When we die for our country
We'll take no part in the destruction
From World War III

    General Commentthis song is from when they were good, and with the original memebers... that new shit that i heard on Mtv sucks.... i have to admit though that it had a catchy tune, that kids would sing along to. so, if thats what they're going for, then i guess that they really do " follow the leader."

    General Commentdickward1 - good job on picking up on how ul changed their music to appeal to the mtv kids.

    it couldn't be because songs from blue room were written around 11 years ago.

    it couldn't have been because they are now older and don't still play the exact same music they did when they were 18.

    it couldn't have been because they have evolved into a more solid group that has deeper lyrics and musical quality.

    nope, they sold out. case closed.

    and by original member(s), i assume you mean the 1 change in lineup that is bassist john bell being replaced by pat kim. that was such a huuuuuuge change

    General Comment---Stoneface---You don't know what you're talking about. Have you ever seen Unwritten law when they still had John Bell???

    I don't think you fully realize the insane amount of energy UL harnessed in those early days.

    My first exposure to UL was in 93' At the old SOMA in downtown San Diego. I went to see headliners Green Day but Unwritten Law stole the show. They played songs like WWIII, Kill to Breathe, Tribute, Superficial Society, Driven, I Will Refuse, Obsession...etc......That was the REAL Unwritten Law!!!!!!

    I was blown away to find out that they were from my little neighborhood. (Poway/PQ)I bought their 6 song demo cassette (it came in a funky little plastic case) For the next 7 years I never missed 1 show (in SD)

    I'm not bragging or claiming to be cool because of this, I'm simply stating that I've had a pretty damn good perspective on the evolution of UL.

    For you to claim that there was no huge change between John Bell and PK is completely ridiculous. It's hard to compare Bell to anyone from the Blue Room Recording alone because it cost almost nothing to make in a hole in a wall studio on an almost bankrupt record label. (It's still my favorite though)

    You would have had to have seen them live back in the day to get an accurate comparison. They lost a step when they started watering down their live set with newer slower happier songs around 98'.

    Don't get me wrong, I was still really into their music, they just weren't the same. They became better songwriters. They still put on an awesome show. I still bought their CDs and enjoyed every bit of their new music. But it was a huuuge difference.

    I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I respect that.

    It's too bad Unwritten Law is dead now. They died to me the day Wade left the band. Wade was the heart and soul of Unwritten Law. And now that Rob Brewer has left the band I refuse to even give the new stuff a chance.

    It has nothing to do with selling out, Scott Russo's bank account has nothing to do with my opinion of his new band. There mourning CD is hollowed out cookie cutter boring bullshit that they are trying to pass off as Unwritten Law. I almost broke down in tears when I heard him singin about dancing on the radio one day.\

    I do realize that I am about 4 years too late for this argument. But I'm sure someone will read this.

    A few years ago I found a crappy live recording of "I will Refuse." Oh man!!! That brought back soooooooo many memories. I haven't seen them play that live since at least 94'
