"Americon" as written by Kerry King, Tomas Enrique Araya and Jeffery John Hanneman....
With our callous minds we infect
Other ways of life no regrets
Like a masochist we instigate
While the rest of the world must tolerate

Americon, it's all about the mother fucking oil
Regardless of the flag upon it's soil
In a blood bath we pad our fucking greed
This precious hunt may take maintain liberty

Americon, so here we live in a land of deceit
That imprison the minds of the weak
No immunity for swaying the odds
From this resistant strain Americon

Americon, some feel the need to play God
No immunity for swaying the odds
From this resilient plague Americon

With our poison minds we infest
Other ways of life we ingest
In a blood bath we steal you dignity
This precious hunt it may take liberty

    General CommentIt's about how the U.S. keep butting in other countries bussiness, EG in the war in iraq we destroyed their government even though most of the citizens didn't want it. Also how we have the strongest army in the world and cause so much death.

    General CommentWhy does Slayer think they can be political all the sudden? I kinda like it, the song is good overall. But when I want political, I'll take Rage Against the Machine or Megadeth. Also, can someone explain the name? I don't quite get it for some reason.

    General CommentThe song's riffs are really good, but I just tried something out for the hell of it. I like the other Slayer slow tempo songs (ex: Skeletons of Society), but this one I thought could use a pickup in speed. I increased the tempo by 15% in an audio program and the result really kicks major ass (especially the drums).

    On the song title, I think by Americon they are saying that it is an American "con" (as in lying or trying to deceive people) stating that the war is about anything else but the oil.

    General Commentabout the song title, although i could not disagree with "abiudb", but my guess is that the title is a portmanteau, [a word made of 2 other words),
    American + Icon = Americon ,
    it kinda makes sense if u think about what other nation think of US with that "Police The World" strategy their leader have been following for decades now...
    now u guys be the judge...
