365 Days of Cock A.D. 390

 I hate to admit to it because I hate all forms of oppression, but I love the Mentors, I have been listening to them since the 80's... that first Mentors 12" is a classic, it is so absurd it is awesome. Get Up and Die is a great song, I love getting drunk and singing along, but as I get older I have a hard time listening to sexist, homophobic...etc. shit, I know it is suppose to be a goof, but over the decades I have met too many creeps that take that shit seriously. I get that it was a different time, & shocking the Morning In America people was the name of the game, but I think there are other ways of doing that with out shitting on a persecuted group. I am sure someone else can articulate this better than me... I am not trying to state that this was the Mentors intention, but I think a lot of people gravitated to the Mentors for that reason, they were a middle finger to those with a stick up their ass. In 1984 that shit was shocking and a misguided political statement, in 2020 being rapey, making fun of disabled people, hating homosexuals, being racist...etc doesn't make you shocking, it makes you your asshole uncle who wears a MAGA hat.

 This wasn't intended on shitting on the Mentors, it's about people now a days that want to be sexist, homophobic, racist, trans-phobic...etc. and using punk rock as their plat form. I am not saying you are punk or not, but I am stating that you are a fucking square, fuck you!
